About Us

Collins Pediatrics was founded by Keith and Jennifer Collins in 2005. What began with one doctor, one nurse and one biller/receptionist on Metairie Road has now expanded to add a second office in Lakeview. The practice now boasts four doctors, one nurse practitioner, all RNs, and a large support staff of professionals who attend competently, with polite efficiency, to all of our patients’ needs.

Collins Pediatrics strives to provide the highest level of personal and professional care to our patients and their families. Dr. and Mrs. Collins had six children of their own and knew firsthand the primary importance of a child’s well-being and health. We appreciate your trust in this practice and respond by providing exceptional care for your children from birth through young adulthood. It is the goal of the practice for everyone to leave our office feeling good, despite illness.

Dr. Collins passed away in his home, surrounded by his family, after a short battle with Cholangiocarcinoma at the young age of 45 on August 29, 2015.  On January 1, 2016, Dr. Heather Porche purchased Collins Pediatrics from Dr. Keith Collins wife, Jennifer.
