Dr Edwards is an amazing doctor,who genuinely cares about his patiences. If you want a doctor who will listen and address your concerns without making you feel silly for having those concerns, He is the doctor. I recommend him 110% for anyone looking for help with painful vericose vains. I truly can't say enough good things about him. I only wish he was a primary doctor or that he would teach the primary doctors around town to have the kind of bed side manner he has. Amazing doctor!

I am a 66-year-old female who developed varicose veins in my legs some years ago, one of which was protruding very noticeably. In addition to causing my feet and ankles to swell, they were very unattractive to me. I finally decided to have something done about them. I consulted with Dr. Robert Edwards who performed the perfect surgery for me in order to correct them. I now have no swelling in my feet and ankles and I am wearing shorts and a swimsuit for the first time in years. --AN

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.
