I am very impressed with the care I received from Dr. Edwards and his staff. He is an extremely skillful surgeon with a remarkable knowledge of vein care. I had issues with my varicose veins for many years and now my legs are pain free and looking better as well. My health has clearly improved, my energy is better and I can get around better than before. I would highly recommend Dr. Edwards because he genuinely cares. Thank you Dr. Edwards and your staff!

I had radiio frequency vein abalation on two superficial leg veins in each leg. Dr. Edwards explained the reasons I needed these procedures and the likely results. When I went to him my feet and legs were swollen and felt heavy when I walked. My quality of life suffered greatly. Dr. Edwards explained the procedures I would undergo to correct this condition. There was little or no pain involved. I would highly recommend Dr. Edwards to others.
