Patient Comments (3)
in Goodlettsville, TN |
Dr. Edwards has been my vascular surgeon for over 10 years. In 2014 he performed a bifemoral aortic bypass on me, which is a risky operation. I came through it with no complications and can walk again with no pain. He was a little stingy on the oxycotin only writing prescriptions for three weeks after I was released from the hospital, for which I thank him after reading horror stories of people becoming addicted. He is always polite & professional, and the wait time has never been excessive.
