Dr. Edwards is an excellent doctor who really cares about his patients. I was diagnosed with a rare eye cancer by him and over five years ago and the care and compassion shown to me by Dr. Edwards and his entire staff was wonderful.Dr. Edwards made sure I received the best care available for this disease. It is because of him that over five years later I am cancer free.

Office staff is unfriendly, even rude. Short hours if you work. Ordered a second set of contacts by phone and they raised the price $20.00 without ever telling me when I called in. Just an unfriendly and apathetic group.
