Ballwin, MO |
My son waited for over an hour. The Doctor rushed through some arm "tests" and gave him vague advise on what to do next. Told him he would check his X-rays and come back. HE NOR THE RN EVER CAME BACK! After 45 min my son went up to the front desk and they told him the Doc is no longer available...more

Dr. Edwards took outstanding care of my daughter this summer following an injury. He is both diligent with his care, and personable with his patients. I recommend him highly.
