One of the Best - Sincere, Patient, Up to Date

I've been going to Dr. Edwards for about 15 years. Never a problem seeing him. His staff is attuned to their job responsibilities. He's monitored my eyes in the progress of "floaters" and when the time will be for cataract surgery. (I'm 66) I'm pleased & trust his diagnosis of where I am on my annual visits. Couldn't ask for a better ophthalmologist.
