  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.

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.
