"Dr Edwards is an amazing kind caring doctor. I am so very impressed with how meticulous he is with his sutures...and I had 0 bruising!! Love him and would highly recommend. He also has outstanding credentials!!"



"Dr. Edward’s was very calming. He explained what the procedure consisted of. He did not give an opinion what to do leaving it totally up to me. Dr. Edwards was very patient and spent a lot of time with me answering questions . I’m looking to have implants removed and not replaced. He was honest as to what to expect afterwards regarding how breasts will look aesthetically. I was unable to find my photos in the website but did see some photos. I would like to have seen before and after photos of implant removal no lift and no implant replacement. The office was very soothing and the staff friendly."
