I saw doctor Edgar for a complex elbow injury, and the surgery was not a success.He send me for many alternative therapies, no success.Finally, he was supposed to refer me to another Surgeon that he felt could help me, but after one month of waiting, my Wife found a surgeon on line at Manchester Hospital that fixed my elbow. Dr Edgar left me hanging with no answers- VERY unprofessional and I would not recommend him , at least anything complicated.Nice Guy, but did not help at all.

Dr Edgar is a really nice person, but his surgery, 18 months later, has left me worse that where I was prior. Several other Dr's I have seen since have stated that his surgery choice was an outdated and poor one. I am now left in constant severe pain. I would most definitely seek out another opinion before going ahead with any recommended surgery - I wish I had.

The best of the best! Very knowledgeable and definitely went out of his way to explain what my treatment options were. He knows his stuff! I'd trust him to treat anyone and highly recommend him. Staff was pleasant and helpful. I felt comfortable asking questions and left very satisfied with the whole experience.

Wow - where to begin.I made an appt to see him and his office canceled and rescheduled 4 times. When I finally got in to see him, I had questions about the procedure and wasn't sure I wanted to go through with it; his answers were very condescending-almost defensive.I ended up going through with it, but when I got home, I had an adverse reaction and called to find out what to do. He said the procedure had nothing to do with it and to go to the ER if I was worried. Not enough space to finish thi

If you are looking for a Doctor that does not respond to you for a minimum of 3 weeks and sends you home from surgery without any instructions and looks at you and tells your its not his problem that you are in pain then this is the guy for you!
