What People Say About Dr. Courtney Edwards, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

She paralyzed my right vocal cord during a routine Parathyroid surgery to remove a small nodule. She had reassured me that my voice would be fine. Didn't turn out that way. She then pushed me off on another throat doctor who pushed me off to another doctor. He did 5 shots in my throat ( while I was awake) to try and restore my voice. It didn't work. Next step is surgery to implant a device so I can speak normally. Horrible experience that has and will continue to cause me severe emotional and physical pain. She's terrible. I do not recommend her

Dr. Courtney Edwards is the best endocrine surgeon!!! My teenage daughter was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and we were referred to Dr. Edwards. Dr. Edwards is professional, caring, sweet and treat you as family. I couldn't ask for a better doctor to make care of my daughter. She has been a blessing throughout all this process.

Dr. Courtney Edwards is an amazing doctor & person. I confirmed with her I had Thyroid Cancer; in July 2018 had surgery to remove entire Thyroid. She was very "hands on", provided the utmost care & concern for how I felt & what I needed to know. She made me feel extremely comfortable about the procedure, what to expect before, during & after since I was a nervous wreck. Everyone needs to be aware of their Thyroid! Request scans! If I didn't?? Would never know, til it was a way worse situation.

Dr. Edwards had a professional demeaner. She was very reassuring and answered all questions. Dr. Edwards spent a lot of time w/us explaining everything thoroughly. The surgery went perfectly with great follow-up care.

Dr. Edwards is just the BEST thyroid surgeon I could ask for. I can't say enough great things about her! She is very knowledgeable, skilled, compassionate, caring! She really listens her patients! 3 nodules were found in my thyroid last month & I was terrified. She removed my thyroid about 2 weeks ago & I am already feeling amazing! Words cannot express my gratitude to Dr. Edwards, she is simply an angel! Her staff is very wonderful & friendly too! I thank you with all my heart dear Dr. Edwards!

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.

Dr. Edwards was wonderful. She answered all of my pre- and post-surgery questions. She provided me with her cell phone number and responded immediately to all texts regarding my surgery. All of the staff at the office were friendly and extremely kind. My scar is tiny and should not be visible once fully healed. I would highly recommend Dr. Edwards to anyone looking for an endocrine surgeon.

Have been to a few Doctors over the last several years and I must say that Dr. Edwards is a "one of a kind" with great bed side manners. Did not realize that Doctors like her still existed. She took as much time as I needed without rushing, explaining my condition (in detail), how she goes about her surgery, etc. I am extremely picky and she passed all of my tests.

My experience with Dr. Edwards has been fantastic, I was completely informed about the procedure needed before and after. I'm recovery now with no pain or discomfort. Great surgeon.
