Dr. Edwards is very compassionate. She understands concerns yet expresses a good sense of humor. I appreciated her pointing out my perfectionism in trying to maintain perfect health. She gave good recommendations for self help reading on the issue.

  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
It was a rushed visit at the very end of the day. When I expressed relief that I was able to get up from the fall because of two replaced hips, she did not understand. Dr. Edwards talked very fast and seemed surprised that we had waited 3 hours to see her. She said she would have fit me in if it had shown a fracture on the x-ray. I did not experience the level of care I have been accustomed to at VM.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
Doctor seemed to know what she was doing, but her sense of humor was kinda caustic, and she wasn't very forthcoming with what she was thinking. I had to follow up with her in email to understand what I was supposed to do for followup. She was fine but not stellar. I would see her again, but I wouldn't enthusiastically recommend her.

  Overall Patient Rating - February 2019
I was surprised during my annual ( physical) that the doctor listened to my heart/lungs, but never looked at my nose and throat . It seems to me that physicals anymore are just wellness checks
  Overall Patient Rating - February 2019
Dr Edwards was wonderful (again). She is very knowledgeable and was very through with all examinations. She called me and detailed the results of my lab work. she personalizes all aspect of her practice and treats everyone with courtesy and honor.

*Dr. Edwards always does an outstanding job. She is friendly and takes the time to cover things thoroughly.
  Overall Patient Rating - February 2019
I leave visits with Dr Edwards feeling that she saw me as person rather than a patient with symptoms, cared about what else is going on in my life and how it impacts my health. She spent more time engaged with me than with the computer. It is a very personalized experience, more like the old time "family physician" that some of us were fortunate enough to have.
  Overall Patient Rating - January 2019
*Dr. Edwards always listens carefully, explains and offers options. I'm very pleased that she is my primary care doctor.
