NEVER! He is the most rude, arrogant, and self centered doctor I have ever seen! He literally YELLED at me for over 10 mins because I questioned his research and diagnosis. He refused to explain things to me again even though I have a neurological disorder that make my thought process slow. He has been reported to customer relations and he will be reported to the Ohio Medical board.

I saw Dr. Edgin for a consultation; I was extremely impressed with him. He was very personable, informative, very knowledgeable, and kind. He took his time with me, and in fact spent between 40-45 minutes with me in the exam room. With most Doctors, patients are lucky if they receive 10-15 minutes, of their time. I complimented Dr. Edgin, for spending so much time with me. He stated that this is how Doctors used to interact with their patients, in the past. I highly recommend Dr. Edgin!

It took forever to get an appointment with the doctor. He spent a few minutes with me after waiting for a long time. His office failed to get a pre- approval from my insurance company for my first procedure. The second one, I had to call them numerous times to get them to contact my insurance company. After that procedure, there was no follow-up. I have had to start all over with another practice. Luckily, with much better results.
