Frequently Asked Questions
Will hormone replacement give me breast cancer?
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) does not directly create cancer. If you have receptors in your breast for estrogen or progesterone and you have that circulating - either naturally or by HRT, it may stimulate these cells to grow. Talk to your provider about your individual risk.
What are risks for HRT?
The use of any hormone—natural, bioidentical or synthetic—all increase risk for cardiovascular events such as heart attack, blood clots and stroke. The goal for HRT use is the lowest effective dose to control symptoms for the shortest time needed. Your provider will help you navigate your risk factors with your needs.
What are the benefit to using HRT?
The basic benefit of hormone replacement therapy in Mansfield is to control menopausal symptoms. These are varied for each individual. Additionally, there is a small benefit to bone density.
It was my first visit with Dr. Kollar. She was thorough and love how she explains my problems and treatment plans. I didn't have to ask much during the visit because she already answered them all. Brenda and Miranda were very nice and helpful! Looking forward to be Dr. Kollar's long term patient.

I have been going to premier women's health since 2013 and would never go to anywhere else for obgyn care. From the staff to Magen and Dr Kollar, the care and customer service is excellent. Dr Kollar and Magen are very knowledgeable and experienced in varied conditions and chronic illnesses, a major factor in why I still see them 9 years later. I highly recommend their office, and both Magen and Dr Kollar are phenomenal health care professionals.

I absolutely loved my experience with Dr. Kollar, Megan NP & their staff. Everyone works great together establishing a nice flow in the office.
I was a high risk twin pregnancy with twins and this office was truly a God send. Every visit I was pleased by the care provided. At 6 months I was hospitalized. It was devastating& very difficult to process but I will never forget Dr. Kollar’s care given. She went above & beyond taking care of me. From direct phone calls to her rounding on me personally every day while hospitalized. At one of my checkup appts, a staff member just about brought me to tears letting me know the whole office had been praying for me after that scare. I’m forever grateful for this office getting me through my first pregnancy, especially during a pandemic!
I will gladly recommend this center.
The service here is truly heart-felt!
I just had the best experience with Dr. Kollar and her staff. I so wish I had been brave enough to switch doctors during my pregnancy last year - I probably would have had a completely different experience. Dr. Kollar was so refreshingly honest yet positive. I’m so relieved I found such a great practice - won’t be looking anywhere else!
Premier Women's Health doctors and employees have taken care of me for many, many years and in more ways than one. I just love, love them all. The overall atmosphere is just wonderful. I have no complaints at all. I look forward to seeing them every visit. Dr. Carolyn Kollar is the best. We need more doctors like her. Just love (her) I am a happy customer.
I am a staunch advocate of Dr. Kollar because she is a champion for her patients.
Experiencing pregnancy can be scary. You inevitably draft or dream how your experience from conception to delivery will go. Dr. Kollar listens intently and does everything in her power to make that happen. Her calmness is contagious and instills confidence during "push time." Her vast knowledge inspires trust - you know you can count on her to provide the very best plan of action. Even when facing the challenging and not-so-happy experiences of growing a family, she cares deeply and does her part to contribute to your family planning. Finally, she is very transparent and forward. There's no need to try to decipher what she's trying to say. To me, those traits are invaluable.
After delivering my second baby with her practice, my family relocated two hours away, and I will continue to commute when its time for our family to grow.
Dr. Kollar is the absolute best.
I've been seeing Dr. Kollar since January and she just delivered my baby on 8/6. The whole experience has been great and she is awesome! Can't recommend her and the team more. Thanks for everything Dr. Kollar and for delivering me a healthy and happy baby boy.

I've been seeing Dr Kollar for close to 20 years for gyn services. Every time I see her, she's friendly, upbeat and tells you everything you need to know concerning your health. She listens and will spend as much time as needed with each patient. I've never felt rushed to get out the door and the appointment times are never overbooked. Each patient has plenty of time with Dr Kollar. I consider Dr Kollar more of a friend than a Dr.

I usually see Dr. Kollar, but this time saw Magen Hutchins (Nurse Practitioner). I was nervous but I LOVED her. She was extremely helpful and took her time explaining things to me. I was so happy I was able to enjoy her as much as Dr. Kollar. The staff was wonderful as always! Great experience
