I would would wholeheartedly recommend Dr Nina Edwards. She is very caring and also very skilled. She took me on after a previous surgery from a different doctor that I was not comfortable going back to. She immediately made me feel comfortable and I knew I was in good hands with her doing a resection surgery for me. The surgery went wonderful and recovery as well. I honestly feel she gave me back my life and quality of my life. I will forever be grateful to Dr Edwards!

Dr. Edwards did amazing surgery on my hernia. It was the worst she had seen in her career and the solution she implemented for attaching the mesh has kept me active, productive, safe and happy. Thank you so much for a wonderful job. I would not be the same without the expert care. Very caring, informative and kind in person, everything I hoped a doctor would be for such important surgery.
