Dr. Edwards fixed what three other hand surgeons could not. After two separate surgeries on my wrist, everyone just wanted to send me to "Pain Management" which is another way of saying, "Get out of my office." Dr. Edwards was different. He actually listened and came up with a plan that considered me and my lifestyle. His surgery was complicated but was executed perfectly. It worked! My wrist feels better than it has in five years. Thank you, Dr. Edwards!

I would highly recommend Dr. Scott Edwards. He is very friendly, knowledgeable and more than all, diagnose the injury and best steps taken. My 6 year old son had broke his arm fallen from monkey bars with fracture at 2 places. Dr. Edwards did just everything thru cast and no surgery. Healing happened from his miracle words with positive tone. Thank you Sir!

My wife had surgery 6 was ago. Surgery was postponed 10 days to 2 weeks because of their error. I give Dr Edwards a D- for his bedside manner or lack of. Surgery was adequate and solved the problem. We didn't learn until her 6 wk visit that she has two plates when we thought just one. No one explained that detail. Her hand therapist has removed 3-4 stitches they missed and at her 6 wk visit the physicians assistant found 3 more they missed. You can certainly find far better treatment.

Over the course of 6 appointments with me, he has spent less than 15minutes total. However I can tell you that 4 of my appointments including my surgery were canceled and rescheduled by his office for times at which I was not available (left a voice mail the day before the original appointment with a new time/date without consulting.) I arrived for a 5th appointment to be told that he was already 2 hours beind and he simply wouldn't see me. For my last appointment I waited 2 hours

Dr. Edwards is very good at his profession and provided me with outstanding care from my initial appointment through post-operative follow up. I found him to be sensitive to my concerns while being able to address clear options. Additionally, his interactions and guidance of Residents in the office and surgical setting is exemplary. His staff and surgical support team speak very highly of him too.
