He is very personable and is very encouraging He is a very skilled surgeon I have had both a total knee replacement and a total shoulder replacement done by Dr Edwards with no complications Both times when I was in the hospital he listened to pain issues and was very quick to respond to changing pain medications
in st joseph mi |
He gave me MRI results and took care of pain from a medial miniscus tear and following arthroscopy years ago. The pain in knee was minor. It hurt on occasion. He offered a steroid shot in the right knee. Short and simple injunction with slight pain. He is wonderful. He took care of two problems in one visit. Thank you Dr. Edwards!
in st joseph mi |
Cared about whole person not just the surgery
in Niles MI |
This was a very successful surgery!
St Joseph, MI |
Good surgeon, except they charge $10 for every fax to your employer or anyone else who needs your information. I ended up spending close to $100 dollars in fax fees, in a time where I wasn't working due to a car accident. There is no reason that someone should be charged that much when my insurance just paid them over $30,000 for my surgery. That is my only complaint.
