I was amazed and grateful to have Dr. Edwards treat my son this morning. My son has a few diagnoses that are considered rare and we are often faced with puzzled looks when we have to go to the E.R. We've had so many experiences with doctors who are not familiar with them and was shocked and relieved to know Dr. Edwards familiarity with the diseases. His knowledge is grately appreciated. He was able to fully treat my son and did so with sich great bedside manner. Thank you Dr. Edwards.

Dr. Edwards took his time with me and my wife, thoroughly and thoughtfully answering all of our questions about her condition. Couldn't have been more pleased with the care he provided.
