Nurse was good and helpful. The doctor was pleasant to talk to and gave advice that was useful towards aging senior citizens.

Our child has extensive medical history. Doctor shared she didn't review his chart prior and was EXTREMELY dismissive to parents concerns.

I'm dealing some pain issues that have been hard to pinpoint and Dr. Edwards was completely engaged in data-gathering and brainstorming--and that is an extremely rare quality, in my experience. Especially when it comes to cumulative pain from a lifetime of accidents/injuries/surgeries that intersect with diffuse symptoms and (here's the important bit): menopause. Knowing how much women as they age have pain symptoms dismissed by docs is one thing, but experiencing it is another, and it's both real and infuriating. So huge thanks to Dr. Edwards for actually trying to figure out what's going on!

  Overall Patient Rating - May 2020
My care provider does listen, & does explain & will hear my input - But I don't often feel its respected. I've been on this planet for a long while now & know my body & I am educated. Many times feel as I am at a holistic dr. who just wants to breath & do yoga has NOT listened many times when asked for help in certain areas.
  Overall Patient Rating - May 2020

I am a bit behind in my routine exams, as I have spent a good deal of the past several years out of the country, or out of the State. Dr. Edwards was very good at telling me which tests I will need to have once the corona virus slows down and I can return to Washington State.
