Best family doctor in Ft. Smith

He is the best in town as far as I am concerned. In comparing my medical care with how my friends describe their care, I am very lucky to be a patient of Dr. Edwards. When you are sick you can reach him and you can get in to see him rather than being passed off to some walk in clinic which is the story many of my friends tell.
