Very pleased with professionalism and very happy with results
in Sister Lakes, MI |
Dr. Edwards' office is ridiculously efficient. He should offer other doctors throughout the country the opportunity to come spend a day at his office to see how it is done. He could charge a mint for that insight. He also offered me a nugget that will stick with me when I said I was disappointed in Quarterback Cam Newton's behavior following his Super Bowl loss. Dr. Edwards said, He is young. He will learn a lot from that experience. That non-judgement is going to stick w/ me.
