I have known Dr Edwards a long time and he has treated multiple members of my family and close friends. I do hesitate to refer him to anyone, regardless of their age. His ability to diagnose and treat quickly has always been apparent. I don't envy an ENT in this area, where allergies are king leaving us feeling like the jester on some days.

Please do your homework BEFORE going to this Dr. He doesn't listen to you, orders expensive (unnecessary tests) and didn't even read my medications BEFORE prepping for surgery. So grateful he did NOT operate on me. I should have done some research before going to him - I recommend you do too.

Dr. Edwards and his staff are not attentive, do not follow up or follow through with their duties and do not respond in a timely manner. It is my experience that taking care of simple matters with this practice is not simple at all. Dr. Edwards did not listen to what I had to say, he had his back turned to me when I was trying to point something out, and he just ignored me and my comment. I am very dissatisfied with this practice and will not be going back.
