Will Dr. Edwards pretend to care in the beginning? Yes Will Dr. Edwards send you back to work without restrictions, while you're still on PAIN MEDICATION HE PRESCRIBED? YES Does Dr. Edwards care about your overall HEALTH after he gets paid? NO WOULD I RECOMMEND DR. EDWARDS TO MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS? NO GO WITH A DOCTOR WHO HAS A PERFECT RATING THEY'RE THE ONES THAT WILL CARE FOR YOU FROM BEGINNING TO END AND NOT LIE JUST TO PLEASE OR COLLECT A CHECK FROM THE INSURANCE COMPANY HE'S A SELFISH FRAUD

Dr. Edwards has been my Dr since 2007. I wouldn't have anyone else operate on my back. He takes his time and explains what your options are. I've had several issues but none had to do with my previous surgeries. His staff is friendly and very efficient.

I came in very nervous and scared of something being severely wrong with my spine and have to undergo surgery. He ordered an MRI that showed I had a tear and ordered therapy and and injection that severely helped my back pain. I did have to wait a bit for my appointment with Dr. Edwards, but it was well worth the wait. I would highly recommend him to anyone with any type of spine issues.

Dr. Edwards is an incredible surgeon. He is so kind, respectful and understanding. He did my back surgery and I have felt great ever since! My quality of life has greatly increased and I could not be more grateful. He always takes a lot of time to explain everything to me. Thank you Dr. Edwards and thank you to his always helpful staff!

My husband was a patient and now I am too, based on the extremely positive experience we had with my husband's surgery. I have neck issues and Dr. Edwards recommended Physical Therapy (at a therapist of my choosing) and an MRI. Fortunately, my issues are not severe. But thanks to Dr. Edwards for reviewing my symptoms, getting me an MRI, and making a treatment recommendation that has already helped.

Was surprised to see he was still practicing. He operated on my back years ago and I was left with a high level of pain. He wanted to send me to a pain specialist! Really.... I came to him because of pain. Finally sent me to physical therapy in the boondocks. Apparently didn't want anyone nearby to know what he was doing to his patients. There are many fine doctors. Don't go to him. He should be doing insurance physicals. I feel like I dodged a bullet. I just glad I'm not paralyzed.

After getting an MRI to check the condition of my back after an assault he told me "instead of being concerned about your back you better be thinking about that mass in your stomach; it's from all them fatty foods you have been eating ". He never once told me about the condition of my back and refused to give me paperwork because I was on WORKMANS COMP, totally treated me like my pains were of no importance. The nurses as well as the office staff were phenomenal.

I want to truly Thank u Dr Edwards for leaving me in severe pain for numerous days! I felt like you were treating me like a drug addict because I have severe allergies to medications! I also feel like when I saw u that u work for workmen's comp. not the patients! Not once did u ask me how I felt! All u did was talk to the workmen's comp rep. I tried numerous times to tell u my MRI was 3 mths old and I was in more pain since it was taken but u just ignored me! I would not recommend you anyone!

My husband is a patient of Dr. Edwards - initially, he appeared very caring and thoughtful. However, after my husbands ACDF surgery - an outpatient surgery - he was advised that he would need to stay overnight. The next day, hours passed as we waited for Dr. Edwards to show up. We were later advised that Dr. Edwards never planned to visit my husband and thought he had submitted his discharge papers the day before. He admitted to the nursing staff that he had no idea we were still admitted.

I had 2 horrible experiences with other docs who didn't even take an x-ray. I've been in constant pain for 2 years. Saw Dr. Edwards and was immediately shocked at how nice he was. He actually listened to what I had to say. Read my MRI and identified the bulging disc the was pressing on nerves. I am now getting proper care. Wish I had seen him 2 years ago. They were 1 nurse short and still the office staff was very nice and pleasant. I watched them work in someone who had come at the wrong day.

I saw Him with severe back injury and he sent me for cat scan then I could not get an appointment for 5 days. I tried to have hIm tell me if I was in danger because I had a work trip and was met with rudeness excuses and plain irruption behavior from a medical office.
