Excellent physician/surgeon who I would highly recommend for someone having any type of spine problem
Atlanta, GA |
Was surprised to see he was still practicing. He operated on my back years ago and I was left with a high level of pain. He wanted to send me to a pain specialist! Really.... I came to him because of pain. Finally sent me to physical therapy in the boondocks. Apparently didn't want anyone nearby to know what he was doing to his patients. There are many fine doctors. Don't go to him. He should be doing insurance physicals. I feel like I dodged a bullet. I just glad I'm not paralyzed.

After getting an MRI to check the condition of my back after an assault he told me "instead of being concerned about your back you better be thinking about that mass in your stomach; it's from all them fatty foods you have been eating ". He never once told me about the condition of my back and refused to give me paperwork because I was on WORKMANS COMP, totally treated me like my pains were of no importance. The nurses as well as the office staff were phenomenal.

I want to truly Thank u Dr Edwards for leaving me in severe pain for numerous days! I felt like you were treating me like a drug addict because I have severe allergies to medications! I also feel like when I saw u that u work for workmen's comp. not the patients! Not once did u ask me how I felt! All u did was talk to the workmen's comp rep. I tried numerous times to tell u my MRI was 3 mths old and I was in more pain since it was taken but u just ignored me! I would not recommend you anyone!

Dr Edwards is horrible. I would not waste my time at all. Look elsewhere.

My husband is a patient of Dr. Edwards - initially, he appeared very caring and thoughtful. However, after my husbands ACDF surgery - an outpatient surgery - he was advised that he would need to stay overnight. The next day, hours passed as we waited for Dr. Edwards to show up. We were later advised that Dr. Edwards never planned to visit my husband and thought he had submitted his discharge papers the day before. He admitted to the nursing staff that he had no idea we were still admitted.

I had 2 horrible experiences with other docs who didn't even take an x-ray. I've been in constant pain for 2 years. Saw Dr. Edwards and was immediately shocked at how nice he was. He actually listened to what I had to say. Read my MRI and identified the bulging disc the was pressing on nerves. I am now getting proper care. Wish I had seen him 2 years ago. They were 1 nurse short and still the office staff was very nice and pleasant. I watched them work in someone who had come at the wrong day.

I saw Him with severe back injury and he sent me for cat scan then I could not get an appointment for 5 days. I tried to have hIm tell me if I was in danger because I had a work trip and was met with rudeness excuses and plain irruption behavior from a medical office.

Dr Edwards did an excellent job on my herniated disc. After 15 years I have never had any issues or additional surgery.
