Dr. Roxanne C Dryden-Edwards has the following 2 specialties
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

If you're at the point in your mental health where you desperately need psychiatric support or at the least an unbiased person to talk, this establishment is by far the worst thing you could ever do to your mental state. Not only was my psychiatrist very cold, distant, and uninterested but she not once gave me any positive verbal confirmation that she could figure out what was wrong with me and help me. After suffering years with undiagnosed mental illness I finally reached a point where I desperately needed answers, as someone who like most people with mental Illness has deep seeded issues with open honest communication, seeing a psychiatrist was a huge step and is a huge step for every single person who suffers with mental illness. Walking in to Dr. Edwards office and even having one conversation with her misinformed, in-compassionate doctors was the worst decision I could've made for my mental health. As a psychiatrist, you should pride yourself on connecting to people and showing them there is someone who cares about the patient and finding the treatment that works. This place only cares about taking your money. I don't believe in going online and writing bad reviews but In this case I'll never respect or talk highly of an establishment that takes advantage of people who cant even get out of bed and take a shower in the morning. For your own good, do not seek assistance for your mental health from Dryden-Edwards.
The office manager Ashley threatens patients when they ask her questions, charge hefty sum for consultations and keep charging more for writing prescriptions. They are a bunch of insensitive crooks. The office manager Ashley is a terror!!!! This office is just a money making racket, they do not deserve to be called doctors. My 14 year old child overdoes under their care, all they were concerned about was their $25/- CHARGE FOR A PRESCRIPTION, AFTER WE PAID THOUSANDS IN CONSULTATION FEES.
Roxanne's (She does not even deserve to be called a doctor) knowledge in her field is extremely poor. I always got a not so good vibe with her, but I stayed because it is really difficult to find a psychiatrist who is taking new patients. Well, she is taking new patienets because nobody wants to see her!!! I was seeing her for depression and anxiety and she did correctly diagnose me, but my appointments were always rushed. She never spent more than 10 minutes with me. I was prescribed with a tranquilizer which did wonders, but I was developing resistance towards it. I read that specific medication is very prone to addiction and does make its subjects develop resistance. When I told her I wanted off of it and the reason, she said that what I read was not true. That was soooooo wrong of her because later I confirmed from other health professionals that I was right. Anyways, I told her I still wanted off of it and she took me off cold turkey!!! A psychiatrist should now that you're supposed to lower the dosage little by little until your body gets used to not having the medication. Well, I had the worst week of my life, goosebumps, nauseas, dizziness, insomnia, palpitations, you name it. When I called her to talk to her, she said to just go back to it. Ugh, I have not gone back and her license should be taken away. That is why there are so many sick people out there, because of "doctors" like her who don't treat their patients properly.
Terrible experience with Dr. Edwards.Dr. Edwards fired a list of questions at me during my first visit and to my horror, misdiagnosed me with an eating disorder. I felt she didn't take the time to understand me at all. I went in to see her for depression and anxiety. She was very abrupt and I felt rushed during the 20-30 minute appointment. I do not have an eating disorder, but I am very meticulous about my diet and workout regimen. I felt she misinterpretted everything I told her and did not truly understand who I am.I made a second appointment out of desperation to seek help for my depression and anxiety. The 2nd visit was worse than the first. The appointment lasted only 15 minutes and Dr. Edwards was again, cold, abrupt and rude. She insisted that I had an "eating disorder" and would not take the time to listen. I told her I had done some research online and found that my symptoms were similar to bipolar disorder, but I needed her help in determining whether or not that was really the issue. Her response to me was, "Well, I am not going to prescribe any medication for you, if that's what you're here for" I was appalled. I had no idea what she was talking about. I told her I was there for depression and anxiety and needed help, and she responded that I should see another psychiatrist if I wanted medication. I was absolutely stunned and in shock and did not understand why she would say that to me.I went home and told my fiance what had happened and he was outraged. Together, we went online and researched bipolar medications, and to our surprise, discovered that some of the side effects of bipolar medication included weight loss. Apparently, Dr. Edwards still couldn't get it out of her head that I had an eating disorder and concluded that I would do anything to lose weight. It was extremely insulting and frustrating to be so misunderstood by a psychiatrist, of all people!!It is unacceptable for a physician to have such a God complex that they misdiagnose a patient without doing their due diligence. If Dr. Edwards had taken the time to understand me, she would have found that I do not have an eating disorder, but a long standing autoimmune disease which can cause patients to have bipolar disorder and extreme feelings of anxiety and depression. My fiance and I had to go online and research this information for ourselves in order to know this. Dr. Edwards just didn't take the time to truly help me.
