Review for Dr. Edwards

Yes, I would highly recommend Dr. Morshedi for Glaucoma treatment. He explains things very well, makes sure you understand what is going on, what needs to be done.

Review for Dr. Morshedi

Excellent neurosurgeon who helped me with my severe neck pain. I had been to many other spine docs one of whom referred me to him saying he was able to tackle the most difficult problems. I was not disappointed
