Specialties

Dr. Jeffrey L Edwards has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

My Memory

After a few visits in each room I felt uncomfortable about the dirty office floors, wondering when the last time this place had been cleaned . . . and this is a medical clinic. Doc just showed his face so he could sign the paper for payment! His nurse diagnoses your symptoms. Very scary . . .

NEVER GO TO THIS DOCTOR!

This doctor is an utter and complete joke! After waiting, what seemed like forever, to be taken back, I got all of about 5 minutes of his time and in the middle of the 5 minutes he took a personal call on his cellphone and left the room. He did not listen to me or my history and seemed absolutely not interested. I got a prescription for pain meds and a topical cream, which I was never able to get because the prescription was written wrong and the pharmacy was never able to get ahold of anyone to figure out what it was supposed to be so I cancelled the meds and cancelled my follow-up appointment as I never planned on going there again. Now I get this bill in the mail with a "no show" charge and when I called, the girl on the phone was absolutely rude, but is reversing the charge (so she said). I will now be going to a pain clinic in Lincoln and hope I have a much better experience than this guy! I wouldn't recommend him to anyone....stay far, far away!!!

Two Stars

Dr. Edwards is nice and knowledgeable. The information about his office personnel is misleading. He is the only doctor in the office providing medical services, and there is no physician assistant despite the fact that the former assistant's name is still listed. Dr. Edwards' RN is the gate keeper, and it is extremely difficult to get her cooperation with regard to an appt between monthly appointments. She is condenscending and makes little-to-no effort to add an extra appt to the schedule. She also essentially diagnosis you on the phone and during consultations before you see the doctor. I began dreading calling the office so much, I started seeing urgent care doctors when I needed medical attention between office visits. The final straw was when she told me the wrong date for an appointment. When I realized it and called to reschedule (because I would be out of town on the actual appt date), she told me that, despite the fact that I would run completely out of medication if I did not get in during that week, she would only postpone my appt instead of moving it up because "we won't change your appt. just because you are going on vacation." what?? I was only able to get her cooperation after asking to speak to the doctor. Upon reflection, I came to my senses and changed doctors. Its such a relief to know I do not have to deal with that anymore!

NEVER SEE "DOCTOR" EDWARDS

This guy is a total CHEAP joke! All he cares about is the money and nothing else. He is totally one of those guys that tips zero when he goes out to a restaurant. I went in with terrible pain and got absolutely nothing out of the visit besides wasting my time and being talked down to.
