About Colleen S. Adkins, MD

  • When she is not at work, Dr. Adkins enjoys cooking and trying new recipes. When the weather is nice, she loves spending time outdoors, swimming, playing tennis, and golf. Most of all, Dr. Adkins enjoys being with her husband and two children. As new Austin residents, she and her family are enjoying exploring all that Austin has to offer, including delicious Tex-Mex and barbeque.

I chose to specialize in Allergy and Immunology because the symptoms associated with allergic disease can severely impact a patient’s quality of life. I take great joy in diagnosing, educating, and helping patients of all ages enjoy life again. I also find the intricacies of the immune system to be fascinating. I practice with a focus on patient-centered care, addressing my patients’ concerns and improving their health and well-being.

    Dr. Adkins is the best… very thorough and professional, but also very caring…!

  • May 8, 2024

    I appreciated Dr. Adkin's solution for the trouble we were having with our allergy drop routine. I also appreciated that she wasn't critical or judgmental about our lack of consistency with treatment thus far, but rather acknowledged our challenges and gave a few alternative approaches to get back on track.
