Our Philosophy and Approach

Professional and personal

When you visit Dr. Collard’s office, you will notice several things that distinguish our practice:

Dr. Collard will personally meet with you at every visit. Known for his bedside manner, clear communication and straightforward approach, Dr. Collard believes patients with orthopedic needs should be treated by orthopedic specialists, rather than physician assistants or nurse practitioners. He never meets a patient for the first time on the day of surgery.

Your concerns will be heard and your questions answered. Dr. Collard is committed to listening to his patients. He will work hard to understand your condition, your needs and your expectations. If you have questions after an appointment, we encourage your phone calls.

You will receive a diagnosis and treatment recommendation that conforms to the best practices in orthopedic medicine. Whenever possible, Dr. Collard recommends conservative, non-surgical options. Surgical procedures are considered when conservative measures fail or surgery is absolutely necessary.

You will be educated on what to expect. Dr. Collard and his staff will provide you with the information you need to understand what to expect from your treatment. When a surgical solution is necessary, we provide you and your immediate family with information about the procedure, risks, complications and post-surgical rehabilitation process.

We will work with you to help you achieve the best possible outcome. That includes providing support throughout the healing process.

Patient Services

To achieve the best outcome, Dr. Collard and his staff make it their business to get to know each and every patient, to understand their needs and expectations, and to diagnose and treat their issue using current best practices in orthopedic medicine.

Happy Patients

  • Dr. Collard is a very compassionate person. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of an orthopedic doctor. He is all about doing the right thing for the patient.

  • Very courteous. Great staff. Always took care of everything that came up.

  • Dr. Collard is amazing. Not only a great doctor but a compassionate person as well. He replaced a knee and both hips. I am not a young person and I had NO problems with any of the surgeries. I would recommend him highly.

  • Dr. Collard has helped me recover from several sports related injuries. I highly recommend him based on my experiences.

  • Incredible doctor! He treated my mom's broken hip, and I felt he was truly concerned. Three years later he treated my broken leg and screwed up ankle. He is a very caring doctor! Dr. Collard is very conservative in his treatments and doesn't do surgery unless it is really necessary, which I appreciated concerning my ankle.

  • Dr. Collard replaced both my knees within six months. I was treated like family. He really listened to me, answered all my questions, explained the procedure, and let me know what to expect during recovery. I can finally do things that I haven't been able to do for years.
