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.
