    I saw Him with severe back injury and he sent me for cat scan then I could not get an appointment for 5 days. I tried to have hIm tell me if I was in danger because I had a work trip and was met with rudeness excuses and plain irruption behavior from a medical office.

    Dr Edwards did an excellent job on my herniated disc. After 15 years I have never had any issues or additional surgery.
