in Eugene, OR |
Following a six month unsatisfactory expeience with another reginologist I was examined and accepted by Dr. Edwards for continuing care of my eyes which had wet macular in one and dry macular in the other. His approch was straight forward in reducing the wet macular condition with monthly injections, which were administered with minimal discomfort, combined with an ongoing monitoring of the dry macular eye to protect my functioning vision in a combined scientific and medical approach.
in Eugene, OR |
I have had 2 major procedures done by Dr. Edwards, both successful. I appreciate his professionalism and his patient respect. You can ask him any question even if it may sound funny and he will answer with the utmost respect. He is matter of fact and I like that. Please feel free to check him out and you will be very glad you did. Donna Elliott
