Dr. Edwards' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Edwards "I first realized I wanted to become a doctor in high school. I attended the Michael E. DeBakey High School for Health Professions, which focused on encouraging students to pursue careers in healthcare related fields. During my junior and senior years, I was given the opportunity to shadow various healthcare professionals, including nurses and physicians. The patient interactions I had during that experience inspired me to pursue a career in medicine. My goal as a doctor and surgeon is to make a difference in the lives of my patients. My philosophy is to treat every single patient as I would my family members. I give every patient my cell phone number on the day of surgery so they can contact me directly if they have any problems or questions. This personal approach to care is the cornerstone of my practice. I cherish my job as an endocrine surgeon. I treat patients with surgical diseases or tumors of the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands. The greatest part of my job is seeing how my work has made a difference in the life of my patients. I love the moment when I see patients post-surgery and we get to celebrate that they are now cancer free."

I recently had a surgery with Dr. Edwards and I really loved the way that she handled the situation. She gives you all the information in a minimal detail, so you can understand everything in the best way. I really recommend her if you need an endocrinologist surgeon.
