Collins Pediatrics strives to provide the highest level of personal and professional care to patients and their families. The practice was founded in 2005 by Keith and Jennifer Collins. What started as a one doctor, one nurse, and one administrator team in Old Metairie soon expanded with a second office in Lakeview. The practice now boasts five doctors, one NP, twenty RNs, and a large support staff of professionals who attend competently, politely, and efficiently to patient needs. Many of Collins Pediatrics’ providers and staff are parents themselves and know firsthand the primary importance of a child’s well-being and health. The practice offers convenient, same-day sick appointments. A longtime member of the Collins Pediatrics team, Dr. Heather Porche purchased Collins Pediatrics after the passing of Dr. Keith Collins in 2015. Before joining the practice, Dr. Porche received her medical degree from LSU-Shreveport in 2004 and finished her Pediatric Residency at LSU-New Orleans in 2007. She is a proud mom to 3 daughters, Raegan, Makinley and Kennedy.
