June 2017
I´m a complicated patient (multiple health issues) and she listens and takes action. I have only seen her for a year after my prior PCP of 17 years retired. He was a tough act to follow but I enjoy my visits with her and feel like I´m well taken care of.
June 2017
so little time with the doctor. she is always rushed. she is very good but I wish we had more time to discuss complex issues. everything has to be dissected into small piceces of the puzzle

January 2017
Dr. Edwards is simply incredible--off the charts. She has treated our 3-year old since birth, and my 59-year-old husband and me since we moved to Bainbridge years ago. We feel so fortunate to have her as our GP/Family Doctor and acting Pediatrician. At every engagement--even one time looking at our toddler in the waiting room late in the day because she happened to be passing by and saw we were distressed--"Dr. Cathy" has provided the utmost professional care and genuine personal care and concern for our family. We are so very grateful to have Dr. Edwards supporting our family. We adore her, hold her in our highest esteem, respect her opinion absolutely and value her direct-but-with-sincere-care advice and counsel. If you were looking for a grade, it would far surpass A+.
January 2017
Dr. Edwards is a very personable physician. She listens carefully and asks questions and then comes up with a recommendation or a course of action! As her patient, I feel that I am in good hands!
January 2017
Dr. Edwards is a brilliant physician and individual. She has the innate capability of taking all the data she is given, hearing it completely, then processing through her amazing data bank, and determines the likely source of the problem and what should be done about it. Resulting in optimal health for her patients. She is amazing! And. . .I speak from the life experience of interacting closely with many physicians over twenty five years as a registered nurse.
