A gift from above!! The entire staff is positive and professional. Dr. Edala is at the top of her game and knows her stuff. She is not only knowledgeable but is a great communicator and listener. My 78 year old husband has dementia. We have been to several physicians and she is , by far, the best. Her approach encompasses the entire family and she considers a variety of treatment options. Little Rock is lucky to have her.

Dr Edala is very willing to listen to the patient before responding. She has a genuine interest in your situation, hears your concerns, then elaborates on her findings. Very calming, reassuring, regarding your problems. Fusses about my weight, but not in a criticizing manner. I would not hesitate to recommend her to my spouse/friends at any time. Certainly gives you the time you need in the exam room without you feeling like she's rushing to another patient. Fantastic chairside manner.

My husband and I both switched to Dr. Edala nearly a year ago. It is wonderful to now have a "family doctor" who cares about us. AND we do not have to wend our way through a huge hospital/clinic to get to our doctor's office! Samantha is wonderful too!

My father was a physician, and Dr. Edala is the single best physician I have been with in my life. I am 73. She is thorough, warm, knowledgeable and responsive to every question. The specialists she has referred me to (for colonoscopies, cataracts, dermatology) are equally impressive. Thanks to doing what she tells me, I am in perfect health. I recommend her to every friend and acquaintance who asks for a good physician.

Because Dr. Edala is a wonderful dr. for my wife, I asked her for help w/ my chest pains, so severe I could not leave home. I am 68 yrs old and had visited two GI specialists to no avail. Dr. Edala has reduced my long list of medications and is treating me for a spastic esophagus. I am now Pain Free!, enjoying life once again. Thank you God for Dr. Edala. She is very intelligent and extremely CARING. You will love her fun and loving staff.
