I have been seeing Dr. Edwards for 10+ years. I have not had one negative experience with her, not once. She's thorough in every aspect of my well being, mentally and physically. She's truly a professional whom cares about my opinions and feedback concerning my treatment plan. She works with me in consideration with my feelings and concerns. Thank you Dr. Edwards for being a significant help

I realize that people who have issues often leave scathing reviews that unfairly skew ratings. But people who are happy rarely write reviews. That is typically my M.O. But not this time. I’m so pleased with Dr. Dryden-Edwards professionalism, care, and compassion that I have to share my experience. I can’t say enough good things about her. My child was having a very difficult time. It was going on for an extended period of time until Dr. Dryden-Edwards came to the rescue. We were at our wits-end. Now things are completely different - a true 180 and our relationship has never been better. Thank you Dr. Dryden-Edwards. Without your help, I’m not sure how we would have managed or where we would be today.

I have been a patient of Dr. Edwards for about a year and am thoroughly appalled by the recent service I have received. I have had struggles over the last few months, including losing a job, thereby losing my insurance and having some financial difficulties. I take medication for anxiety and depression, well established and tolerated as documented by Dr. Edwards, and I contacted the office to see if they could work with me given my situation. I have been making payments as I can afford and simply wanted a one month prescription to give me a chance to get sorted out and back on my feet, something I would think a mental health doctor/practice would be receptive to. As any decent psychiatrist knows, these medications cannot be stopped without some tapering regimen as it is dangerous. However, it seems there is truly no concern for the patients, and a frightening lack of awareness and sensitivity from a doctor dealing with mental health. This is negligence and I will not be returning.

I was a patient for many years although the PA Charlene Morgan has always been great to us and my child the office manager Mrs. Stone is one of the most unprofessional person I have ever meet. You owe a copay that is outstanding no matter the amount she will treat you like if you are beneath her. Mrs Stone is none empathic and make smirky comments regarding your financial situation. I do not recommend this practice
