in Princeton, NJ |
Dr. Edwards is everything you could hope for in a doctor, as she is extremely competent, thorough, and knowledgeable; has a wonderful "bedside manner;" listens better than any doctor I've ever had; is very patient and accepting so you it's easy to discuss anything with her; follows up on everything (even calling while away at a conference to check on something); is willing to discuss alternative to medication with an open mind; and has a wonderful sense of humor.
