I work an interpreter for workmen's comp patients and have been to most ortho practices in the Triangle over the last 6 years and Raleigh Hand is my number one choice for arm issues and Dr. Edwards III is a great example of the overall high quality care you will receive there. I was not disappointed when I finally did have an arm issue and went there for care.

Dr Edwards III was great. He did a wonderful job fixing my carpel tunnel. He also worked with me to do them both at the same time so I would not miss work. His staff is very friendly. I highly recommend Dr Edwards III.

Dr. Edwards took care of me over a year ago with a condition to my left pinky called Hoemophilus Influenza type b which may have been a late diagnosis but not his fault. He came in after another doctors premature surgery. None the less Dr. Edwards was very compassionate and made himself accessible to any questions or concerns that I had. He saved my finger from amputation. Thank you Dr. Edwards and I hope all is well with you and yours.
