Dr. Edwards is excellent.

June 16, 2017

always good experience

May 22, 2017

I always look forward to time with Dr. Edwards to assess my heart health and receive answers to my questions. I have the utmost confidence in him and his staff.

April 13, 2017

Explained my current circumstances and resulting stress level. Explained that this would soon change. Told them the blood pressure medicine my PCP prescribed 6 weeks ago until I could see cardiologist made me tired. Blood pressures have been under control. This provider is going to try to slowly stop current prescription and monitor results. If further medicine is necessary, he is going to try to find one that does not affect me adversely.

March 24, 2017

Friendly, thorough, compassionate and knowledgeable.

March 10, 2017

Dr. Edwards is a kind, compassionate, person, who listens to his patients and does his best to diagnose the problem and resolve the issue.

March 10, 2017

Excellent experience with Dr. Edwards and his staff. Dr. always takes time with exam and discussion.

February 16, 2017

Dr. Edwards, after careful examination, did prepare an order for blood work and a change in one of my medications.

December 16, 2016

My wait in the waiting and exam rooms was a bit longer than 15 minutes, but for understandable reasons related to the care of other patients. We all need to be flexible! The team in Dr. Edwards' office is very effective in honoring appointment times.
