Plastic Surgery Fellowship
Upon completion of medical school, Dr. Collins went on to train in General Surgery at the University of Virginia.

Upon the completion of over 14 years of school and training, Dr. Collins moved back to his hometown of Raleigh, NC where he began his own private practice, eventually joining Synergy as medical director and resident Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon. He holds surgical privileges at all four Raleigh area hospitals.
