Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Yes, I’d recommend Dr Edwards to friends & family! What I value is his body posture (he sits & faces me-rare in doctors these days), eye-contact, he’s observant & gave helpful instruction on my body posture in relationship to the walker I use, he explains things, answers questions, makes himself available through the patient portal, ordering PT when needed, etc.

Not a very good bedside manner. Also not brave enough to give an ultimative himself.
