Patient Stories

Kristopher D. Collins, MD

Thanks to my care at OrthoVirginia, I can walk and am back in the gym after 5 months of down time due to a complete tear of my Quad muscle on my right leg.

I wanted to write and let you know how satisfied, happy and healed I am thanks to your great staff and Dr Chris Collins. Dr. Collins got the luck of the draw when I tore my quads on Dec 8th. After visiting the ER, which was not overly impressive, I was introduced/assigned to Dr. Collins. The doctor at all times was professional, yet friendly and down to earth, unlike so many doctors in the field. 

He informed me of what was to happen in the surgery. Discussed again the day of my surgery, which went very well. Of course there was pain and discomfort, I ripped three quad muscles that he was nice enough to reattach. 

Each follow up was direct, to the point and on time. He always expressed concern as to how I was progressing and felt. I always felt as though I was in good hands and moving toward recovery. Recovery is going well. After 8 weeks of physical therapy I am back in the gym, no squats mind you, feeling better each day and I am glad you have such a great doctor on your staff. 

While I hope to never have to have this done again, should I have to, Dr. Collins is the first choice I would take. 

Thank you for such great service during a not so great and painful time.
