No show! Dr. Edwards was recommended to me by an Physcian friend of mine. I made an appointment for a month out. When I arrived, I waited and finally was seen by his PA. The PA reviewed the X-rays with me and injected the steroid in my shoulder. On my way out of the office, Dr. Edwards was standing in the hallway. He shook my hand and I left. Why didn’t he show up? There was no explanation. He’ll certainly get paid for my visit! Not very responsible, I’d say! I won’t go back to him. Roger M.

My husband and I have both had knee surgery and I have had a shoulder replacement. I just wouldn't go anywhere else because Dr. E. Is so patient, taking time with you and makes you feel like he cares about you. And his work is the BEST according to those who work with him (like the shoulder maker). I have recommended him to several friends. My only complaint would be in the wait time but I sat there knowing that he would give me all the time I needed so I was patient!

Dr. Edwards has treated me for 20 years due to a terrible knee injury. He replaced that knee last year and continues to treat me for the other knee now. He is an excellent Dr. who is not only amazing at his job but is caring and always takes the time to answer any questions and concerns. I love his staff too! What a great experience when having such a horrible injury.

He is very caring and supportive. When my shoulder was terribly damaged due to many falls, he patiently repaired it.
