"Treating Dr. Tom “Pat” Collins’ patients has been a great honor and joy, and I am very proud to be continuing a long tradition in Marin. This practice was first opened in 1968 by Dr. William Jagger, and Dr. Collins succeeded in Dr. Jagger’s footsteps in 1986. Almost 50 years later, I still see many of Dr. Jagger's patients, and they tell me stories of how they were treated in this very office as children. Now, I have the honor of treating them and their children! Being able to take care of generations of families makes me feel right at home, and I look forward to continuing this great tradition here in Marin."
