I felt like a cheap piece of meat. Get patients in and out and make the $$$$. He is hurried, no patient skills, doesn't explain anything. I felt dazed and confused. I am told I have major issues w my shoulder, so gave me a shot and told me to come back in 3 months for another one. I am pretty much sick of FOG. It is all and only about the money. Move patients and charge the crap out of them.. The way of modern medicine????

When I went, my shoulder was almost totally frozen up. Dr Edwards turned a surgery I was afraid of to a piece of cake. He is the best in Texas. He does 250-300 a year, more than any other dr. in Texas. It has been 6 months and I am about 75% back to where I was 40 years ago! I can cast, and dance with my wife again. Important to me! He is the MAN!

bedside manner was Horrible! No compassion with rare problem. Dr. Edwards gave hope last year that he could do surgery if pain mngt did not help but when we went back to request surgery - he says he nor anyone can fix- just get used to pain! He was short with responses and was in a hurry to get out of room. We requested more time and he had already left building. our request for followup conversation has been ignored. guess he only want patients that are guaranteed to be successful!
