Terrible he is terrible. My daughter went to him for her Addison’s because it is a life threatening condition and he left her in an adrenal crisis for two months.

Dr Edmondson thinks he knows everything. I have Addison’s disease and am clearly his only addison patient. He constantly compares me to a patient with no adrenals. It’s not even remotely the same. He refuses to look up my disease and treat it according to guidelines and then actually forgets what medication he has me on. I came here for help and got left here to die my Addison’s has gone so long without its emergency medication for primary Addison’s that I’m now in renal failure from it. If I could afford to sue him for malpractice at this point I would he is a know it all with little availability to even research anything.

Dr. Edmondson was very condescending. He dismissed concerns and was hurried during my daughter's initial appointment. He had no concerns regarding her blood pressure of 150-160/90-100 as a 21 year old patient. We had high hopes, however, were extremely disappointed after waiting 3 months for her initial appointment regarding her medical issues, abnormal lab(s). We were extremely disappointed and were left feeling lost.

Dr. Edmondson and his staff are always friendly, helpful and professional. He takes the time to listen to his patient and make recommendations and reassurance. I am so grateful my family doctor referred me to him several years ago. I don't mind traveling 45 minutes for my appointments

Dr. Edmondson is an amazing doctor. After being diagnosed with T1D I was overwhelmed, I had seen two other physicians for my condition and felt as though I was not being heard and that I was just a another file. After my first appointment with Dr Edmondson I felt for the first time since being diagnosed that this isn't an impossible condition to manage, he explained things in a way that actually made sense and then took the time to make sure I felt comfortable with my plan of care. Great doctor!

Dr. Edmondson is an excellent endocrinologist! He is amazing at working with patients to figure out the best individualized response to deal with their condition. (for me T1D) The staff is friendly and helpful and very accommodating. Dr. Edmondson is knowledgeable but seems to appreciate patient feedback. I always felt comfortable being honest about my care. He talks straight to you and is willing to work with you. This practice is absolutely excellent.

Excellent! Dr. Edmondson is very knowledgable on endocrine issues, provides outstanding information, and takes the time to give a thorough examination. He is thoughtful, friendly, cooperative, encourages patients to ask questions, and he listens. Dr. Edmondson has been extremely helpful and prompt in taking care of a Letter of Medical Necessity needed for my insurance coverage for a Prior Authorization. I have been a patient of his for over 20 years, and I am very thankful for him.
