Anyone know why she suddenly closed her office? The office is completely emptied out with a note on the door stating no longer in business.

Heard she had tax problems and closed down. Don't know that for sure but that is what I heard. Her ex handled the bookkeeping & besides being a shmuck he screwed up her taxes.

Her ex no longer worked for her and I think its awful the way she did her patients, me included. She sent our records to a doctor that wont let us have them. Not a good way to do business!

This is just terrible. The patients she had for years were very faithful to her and for her just to up and leave without an official letter is tacky. My family member had gone to her and raved at how great she was and to see this happen with not so much as a Sorry letter or something to let her patients know what she was doing with their records and where they could go to continue service..... Shame on her. Bad girl! I do hope where ever she's at, she can straigten herself out and be happy.

I was told that the records of her patients were transferred to a MD named Dr. Efobi. Hope that helps someone.

Dr Efobi does have the records, but they will charge you to get your own records. I gotta say it really irritates me to be charged by a doctor I did not authorize to have my records. Have your new doctor get them. They will not charge them.

Well here is a flash for you....Dr. Efobi who was sent Dr. Collins records, sent them to a storage facility in Lavergne, TN. Good luck getting them and there is a charge. Efobi's office will give you the number of the storage facility if you press them for it. At least Doc could have sent us a postcard telling us that we could pick up our records and where for a specific time. I now have some developing health matters and my current doctor says I desperately need my old records. Otherwise I will have to go through more testing than would have been necessary, and, I will have to pay AGAIN.!!!!!!!!! I don't know how the caring doctor I thought she was could have been so uncaring to her patients. Beware wherever she goes...the same behavior may follow her there too. Shame, Shame, Shame on her!

Dr. Tammy was/is an excellent Dr. She truly cared for her patients.. I always said she was a mother hen..I'm not sure what happened, but I know this isn't like her. I do know that things started getting bad when her husband (ex now) ran the office and he did a terrible job. I know he hasn't worked for her in a while, but he screwed everything up.
Where ever Dr. Tammy is, my husband and I wish her well and pray that things get turned around for her and that she is still practicing medicine because she is an excellent doctor.
Yes, it is very upsetting that she is closed and without notice and that our records are somewhere we can't get ahold of,(if we push hard enough we will get them!) but instead of condemning her, lets all pray for her and what has to be a terrible situation for her. She loved her patients and loved helping people.. I believe it was more about her patients for her then about money... And those kinds of doctors don't exist any more.
So, Dr. Tammy.... Where ever you are... You are in our hearts and prayers. If you ever get a chance to read this...please contact me... Remember...medicine is your passion... Just like photography and farming is my passion...

I agree with the latest post.. Remember this is a person that at one time cared for all of you and let's be supportive that maybe now she needs some taking care of! She is my absolute favorite cousin and we were very close at one time and now I can't seem to find her!! Obviously something is wrong.. please keep her in your prayers as I will be doing my best to find her and make sure she is alright.

Her x husband didnt screw up her practice, SHE did by spending more than she took in.. I know for a fact that she had several affairs while she was married. She couldnt see enough patients to support her habits. Check the court records, she lost her house and almost lost her kids because of the affairs.

I ran across this doctor with a new practice in Fairfield Glade, TN. Assuming she is the same one, that is, Dr. Tammy J. Collins. She is now part of the Cumberland Physician Group.
I thought I would give her a try but the most disturbing issue is the handling of the medical records.
As to long waiting times I think that goes with a good doctor who cares more about her patients than a time clock.
I have been to doctors who carry timers in their pockets. When the timer goes off you are done. That's not what I call medicine. I would be happy to wait when necessary for a doctor who would take time with me when needed.

It is true she is working with the Cumberland Physician Group in Crossville Tn. You can find her on their web page. If I were having problems getting my records I would contact the Tn. Medical Board and let them know what is happening. It seems to me that there should be procedures a licensed Doctor should have to follow when closing a practice. I donít know but would think a doctor would have to give notification of when and where you could get your medical reports.

That is All A lie. I know Dr Tammy and she didn't have any affairs... Her husband did. She TRIED to help people and they took advantage of her. She got tired of fighting and people taking advantage of her.... People that she cared the most for USED her the most!

I agree. Dr Tammy also sent letters to her patients. Tracy said they sent letters to the addresses of any patient in the computer/billing system. A letter also went out with the last billing statement. Letters were sent, I have one. Tracy, her nurse also stayed at the office for about a month after she quit seeing patients to help everyone get their records. Like always, the few that didn't update their information are the ones griping that they weren't notified!!!! Take responsibility for your own actions!

I don't know who you are but you don't know as much as you think you do... Check the court records, she almost lost her kids due to these affairs.... She DID loose her house because she couldn't make the payments.. Check the court records, it's all public records.. Tracey told me that all her medical supply venders had cut off her supplies because she was so far behind on payments.. She lost everything because she couldn't keep her pants up...Hell, ask Jim, her ex husband...

I was a long time patient of Dr. Collins. She was very caring and knowledgeable. I thought the office ran well when Jim was there, but I do believe he did her wrong. I have some strong feelings about the medical record situation. I received NO letter and went by the office numerous times and no one was ever there. I called many times and no answer. My information in the computer system had no reason to be incorrect, so if letters went out it was handled as incompetently as her office was managed. She is a wonderful doctor, but was dealing with people who did not give a flip!

Her ex husband hit on me trying to pick me up before their divorce was final. She had someone running her office (she had a lot of patients and needed assistance) and this person stole from her. She then had some help from her sister but her sister was dealing with some medical issues and couldn't continue to help as Dr Collins needed. She had sent records to Dr Efobi. Past that, I can not say anything for a fact.

Dr. Collins is still married to the guy she married after divorcing Jim. She has been married since around 2010 /2011 to this new guy. According to friends of mine, she is sleeping with lots of guys while separated from her new husband, who lives in another state. These "sleep overs" are the reason she lost her practice and her house.. She really had a lot of people fooled.......
