"Adam has had both disappointments and achievements in his journey to becoming a successful Physician Assistant. His first grade difficulty learning to read and write was typical of a dyslexic boy. Being goalie on a national champion soccer team in college was not typical. His life today is centered on his lovely wife Sandy, three children (Anna, Robert, and Alex), medicine, and staying healthy after a battle with cancer."
"Katherine‘s life was dramatically changed August 1989, two days before she was to begin her junior year in high school. She was in an auto accident which resulted in a traumatic brain injury. With great determination she worked hard to overcome the physical, cognitive and psychosocial consequences of the injury. She is a successful adult today."
Can a dyslexic become a doctor? Andrew Collins proved that the answer is yes! Dr. Andrew Collins is a podiatrist whose office is in Lewes, Delaware. He also has privileges in several hospitals in Lewes, Delaware; Rehoboth Beach, Delaware; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It took hard work, supportive parents, and caring persons along the way for him to reach this goal.
