For New Patients

Please request a virtual visit when you call 773-795-8777 to schedule your initial appointment.

Sarah Collins, MD, FACOG, FACS, is a board-certified surgeon whose practice focuses on urogynecology and reconstructive pelvic surgery. Dr. Collins is an expert in diagnosing and treating pelvic floor disorders, including pelvic organ prolapse, urinary and fecal incontinence, complex urogenital and rectovaginal fistulae, complex lower urinary tract injuries after pelvic surgery, and congenital genitourinary anomalies. Her skill and experience allow management of complex surgical problems through minimally invasive approaches whenever possible.

Because she understands the personal and private struggles that women with pelvic floor disorder face, Dr. Collins’ approach to care centers around being an advocate for her patients and prioritizing their healthcare experience from the first visit. She is heavily involved in creating and researching shared decision-making (SDM) tools for patients facing decisions about pelvic health treatment options. Her dedication to practice efficiency and streamlining the care experience is concentrated on ensuring that patients get the most out of every office and operating room encounter. She is a federally funded researcher and holds leadership roles in national and international professional organizations.

In addition to her surgical practice and research, Dr. Collins is passionate about teaching the next generation of gynecologic surgeons, providing training to medical students, residents and fellows. She also dedicates her time and surgical skill to an annual surgical mission to Rwanda, where she teaches local surgeons in the treatment of women with obstetric injuries and complex genitourinary and rectovaginal fistulae.

Why does this provider not have a star rating?

Our goal is to provide our patients and visitors with correct and useful information. We only post provider satisfaction information from clinic surveys when they are returned from patients.

This provider has not had surveys returned that meet the necessary sample size

About Our Star Ratings and Comments:

Randomly selected patients are sent patient satisfaction surveys after their visits. We get thousands of survey responses each year. The responses are used to improve patient experience and recognize staff members for the care they provide. Patient survey responses are also used to make star ratings for each provider.

For the star ratings and comments, all feedback on the provider web page is posted as it was given from patients. Comments that do not apply, risk patient privacy, or are not appropriate are not posted. Star ratings and comments come from a number of survey questions. A star rating is not given if a provider only has a small number of survey responses.
