Dr. Edwards has been my medical doctor for over twenty years now, and he is the kindest, most caring doctor anyone could have. He knows my body so well and never orders unnecessary tests, but orders tests when it is necessary. I trust him and his advice completely. Dr. Edwards staff are all helpful and kind. I would be honored to recommend him to family and friends.
Dr EDWARDS is a great person. He is willing to listen to patients.

Dr. David Edwards, who is with Sterling Primary Care at Centennial, is a wonderful doctor, the kind you heard about from the "olden days". He takes a real interest in you and your medical health. He is kind, thorough and a good diagnostician. He has helped both my husband and myself. We have been with the practice since 2009. If he feels you need a specialist he is quick to give you a referral and he picks very good doctors. We have sent 4 people to that practice and he's helped all of them.

We have been going to Dr. David Edwards for about 10 years. I think he is terrific and have recommended him to several friend who are now patients of his. He referred me to a urologist when my psa score was elevated to see if I might have cancer. The urologist did find cancer and I opted for a the removal of my prostate which was in 2009. During my hospital stay Dr Edwards came over to visit the day of the surgery. This was a very pleasant surprise and demonstrated his compassion for people

in Franklin, TN |
Dr. Edwards has been my doctor for over 30 years. He is excellent in working with patients. You never feel rushed to ask the questions you have. He is also caring. He has saved my life several times by diagnosing my condition when other emergency doctors had failed to diagnose the severity of my condition at that time. I feel great that he is working with myself and my husband through whatever life holds. He's the best! I've never had another doctor in my life give me this caring.

Dr. Edwards is great! I feel like he is close to retirement or part- retirement, so I don't feel he needs to build a patient base.

Great doctor. Very special person.
Pleasant View, TN |
Dr. Edwards listens. He's not looking at a screen or taking notes while your talking. He's having a conversation with you, maintaining eye contact. With his outstanding knowledge and experience you will make less trips to the doctor. Easily translates and discusses diagnosis and treatment options with you. You never feel rushed or that your 3 minutes is up. He manages to give you all the time you need and still stay on schedule. He is everything a doctor should be and more. He rocks!

My wife and I feel blessed that we were referred to Dr. Edwards several years ago. He has always been there for us.
in Nashville, TN |
He is a great, caring doctor IF you can get in to see him. He has cut his hours way back and you cannot get an appointment in anything less than five months which is beyond excessive. While he is an excellent and caring doctor his staff is below par and get nasty over the phone. Sadly I can no longer recommend him.
in Murfreesboro, TN |
One of the top internal medicine physicians in Nashville and probably TN. Thorough, caring, conservative diagnosis and treatment. great communicator, He is the top of my list. Too bad federal government is robbing patients of this wonderful kind of medical treatment due to Obamacare.....which is NOT designed to help anyone. Bottom line, is however Dr. Edwards is THE best.
