Dr. Edmunds performed a no scalpel vasectomy on me. He was professional and personable. The procedure was quick and painless. He explained everything very well during the procedure. Would definitely recommend Dr. Edmunds to any guys looking to have a vasectomy.

Dr. Edmonds is an extraordinarily capable and compassionate physician. In my years on this earth (late seventies) he has far and away the best bedside manner I have ever encountered. If you make the decision to entrust Dr. Edmonds with your urological needs, pat yourself on the back you have made a wise decision. Tim Gamble

Upon entering had a bladder scan which they billed insurance 148 dollars. My condition in no way indicated a bladder scan should be performed. I suspect this is done on all patients to bill insurance. Physician was unprofessional and used lots of locker room humor. Then I get a bill with 100 dollar late fee for not paying in 10 days. Don’t waste your time with a “solo” practice in a run down office.

I developed acute urinary retention overnight, and contacted my primary care physician.lwas referred to Dr. Edmunds, who agreed to see me ASAP. As soon as I entered his office, and he heard my name called, he instructed his nurse to immediately take me to an exam room and begin treatment. I could never expect to find a more competent and professional staff as well as a caring and compassionate physician. I highly recommend Dr. Edmunds

I have known Dr. Edmunds for 15 years. I have a reoccurrence of kidney stones. He take’s the time to explain what the problem is and what the procedure entails. He explains what might occur after the procedure and if you don’t understand you can call the office. I had an emergency and was offered to have another urologist take care of me and I told them no that Dr. Edmunds was my doctor and I would prefer him. You are in good hands with this practice.

After research & deliberation, I decided to have the Vaportrode procedure Dr. Edmunds & I discussed. I have BPH and my medication was no longer effective. During the procedure , Dr Edmund discover a bladder tumor and I'm currently recovering & doing well. Through out the tenuous appointments, surgery & follow up, Dr. Edmunds was personable, professional & punctual. His competence is beyond reproach & the integrity of his staff irrefutable. I HIGHLY recommend him as a urologist!

This is Dr Edmunds. The patient with 9 stones is lying, period. Non-compliant and rude to my PA. He was dismissed from my practice. You can please 95% of people. As for the other 5%, you cannot. I don't tolerate rude patients. I love nice patients!

Dr Edmunds and his staff has always been professional. He takes time to build a relationship which makes an awkward situation more bearable. He has sat there, answered and explained everything to my wife so she also understood what is going on. I had been to several urologist in the area. They acted like I was taking up their time or I was a bother and with one of them I ended up with an infection. If you are nervous about what Dr. to use, try Dr. Edmunds you will not regret your decision.

This doctor is two faced. I watched him talk very nice to an older gentlemen and after he left the Dr made unprofessional remarks until he seen me sitting in the room next with the door open. He tried to play it off but he was caught , you could see it in his facial expression. I was told the 9 stones I had in my kidney were not to be concerned with. Needless to say 48 hours later I was rushed to the hospital due to a blockage. Thanks For Nothing. I would give this guy no stars if I could
