Kingman Regional Medical Center (KRMC) is pleased to welcome Dr. Carol Lee-Collins to its medical staff. As a fellowship-trained gastroenterologist, she specializes in the diagnoses, treatment, and management of digestive system disorders in men, women, and children.
With over 20-years clinical experience in gastroenterology, Dr. Lee-Collins is skilled in advanced diagnostic procedures and treatment options for patients with problems in the esophagus, stomach, large and small intestines, rectum, gall bladder, liver, or pancreas. She is proficient in colonoscopy and other endoscopic procedures for visualizing and treating organs in the digestive system. She comes to Kingman from Bismarck, North Dakota where she practiced as a gastroenterologist for Sanford Bismarck. Prior to that, she was in private gastroenterology practice in Tucson, Arizona.
She received her doctorate in medicine at University of Illinois at Chicago Medical School and completed her internship and residency in internal medicine at University of Southern California (USC) Medical Center in Los Angeles. She completed a two-year fellowship in gastroenterology through King-Drew Medical Center, also in Los Angeles. She is board certified in both internal medicine and gastroenterology by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
In describing her approach to patient care, Dr. Lee-Collins says “I like to treat my patients like I would want my family treated. Each patient should be treated with dignity and respect and given my complete attention without distraction.” Dr. Lee-Collins also takes time to teach her patients about digestive system health, stating “Education is key to patient understanding and compliance.”
Dr. Lee Collins began seeing patients in Kingman on May 28th, including patients of gastroenterologist, Dr. Wilson Otero, who will be leaving the Kingman area later this month.
