I need more than 5 stars! I visited Dr. Edwards after years of going to doctors who threw prescriptions at my symptoms. He is truly like no other doctor I have ever seen and I am so very grateful for him. He takes time to listen and explain in a way that you understand. He is so knowledgeable, thorough and really searches for answers by looking at the body as a whole. I am finally on the road to health and wish I had found him sooner. I recommend him to everyone I talk to and have gotten all of my immediate relatives to switch to him!

His vast knowledge in medicine and his caring for the patient is at the top. With someone that good, comes the problem of booking an appointment but once you get in, it is worth it. His staff is second to none and us, the patient, is their goal.

Dr. Edwards is, by far, THE BEST Primary Care Physician I've ever known. Intelligent, caring, professional, competent, personable, experienced, even funny at times. Two things that stand out are 1) his incredible dedication, he has called me on my cell phone to discuss lab/test results after hours multiple times, and 2) he tends to involve you by thinking out loud in his diagnosis process, this way, you work together as a team. He treats you with wonderful respect.
