Dr Edlund one of most experienced and sensitive surgeons in all of Ft Wayne. I have known Dr. Jim for the past 31 years and received exceptional care always. His respect for personal attention, understanding and sensitive listening, second to none. A disarming sense of humor always needed and appreciated.
