What People Say About Dr. Lance Edwards, MD

Dr. Edwards is a very intelligent man. He could tell I was nervous due to the results from my pelvic ultrasound. He answered all my questions, told me not to worry - he has been doing this for a while and knows what to look for. He always asks if I'm comfortable and let's me know what I am going to experience before he continues. He performed my sonohysterogram, found a polyp right away, said he would send the biopsy to the lab, and told me he would call me as soon as he received the results. He did just that. I now have an appointment to get a polypectomy and an ablation in June, and I should be back to normal by the next cycle or two, possible without a period!!! :0)

Shocked to see such a low rating for Dr. Edwards. He is one of my favorite doctors. Initially I had to see him for a special procedure. I was terrified and nervous because I had never had a male GYN. Dr. Edwards made me feel comfortable and assured me everything would be ok; after that I made him my regular doctor and have been seeing him for about three years now!
