Specialties

Dr. Andrea G Edwards has the following 2 specialties

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Not good, for sure.

This is one of the most horrid Physicians I have ever seen. She treats you like you are a number out of a book. She won't look at you, think outside the box, listen to your questions, or give you a direct answer. I felt like I was bothering her with my questions. The more specific and detailed the question, the more irritation she seemed to feel. She misdiagnosed me, with a second type of cancer. If I had not pursued a second opinion on my own and done tons of research, sought out the best physician in the US for the Cancer she was telling me I had, I don't know where I would be today. I felt she was dangerous to my health, she won't listen, she does not like to be questioned, she does not use common sense when faced with a new problem. Seems to be unfeeling, and has no compassion. If you are newly diagnosed, you have enough to worry about without having to do battle with your Oncologist. If you do have to see her, you best be on your game, and research everything she tells you, and don't leave her office until she fully answers all your questions (you will have to ask the same question over and over to finally get some sort of answer) It's exhausting and frustrating to deal with this woman.

A caring understanding doctor

Dr. Edwards is a doctor who is concerned about her patients. She takes time to review the patients' records so when she sees them, she can talk about their individual case. She makes sure that you have your next appointment before you leave the office. Dr. Edwards visits her patients at the hospital and many time at their homes. I really like Dr. Edwards.

One Star

Extremely unresponsive to family wishes. In spite of being presented with medical power of attorney for 88 yo man with dementia, she will apparently do whatever she wants and avoids contradictory requests from family, including the power of attorney. Ignored repeated requests for contact by the designated medical power of attorney and scheduled procedures without consultation. Instead of contacting primary doctor for consult, instructed caretaker to do this.
