"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!!"



"I came to see Dr Edwards for a breast augmentation revision. I did not see any other surgeons before booking my surgery date. He is very professional. During our first consult I didn't have to explain what was wrong with my previous surgery as he could see what was needed.bhe definitely wants to give me the look I want while keeping my body proportionate. I had many appointments with him before surgery so I could figure out what size I would be happy with and he always made me feel comfortable and never rushed. Surgery is tomorrow and not at all nervous. I only wish I chose him first time around."



"Dr Edwards and his staff are nothing less than amazing! Every step of the way they listened, informed and delivered 1000%! I really can’t say enough good things about them! Dr. Edwards bedside manner is stellar! He will make you feel at ease, hold your hand while you fall asleep and tell you the truth! Not to mention his work is impeccable! Every single person I’ve come in contact with, in that office has been kind, caring and they all make you feel like you’re their only patient. I had a breast implant revision and lift 4 days ago and I already love the way they look! Even better than my first BA! I couldn’t be happier. I’m so excited to see the final results as time goes by, but they already look beautiful. You will not regret your choice, if you choose to go to him! Thank you, Dr. Edwards, Cathy, Ada, Sandra, Mary, Brooke, Dr. Bowers and everyone else I’m missing by name!"



"Dr. Edwards is AMAZING! So kind and so genuine, he really cares about his patients. I had a moto accident before my surgery and he made time to see me a week before my surgery to make sure I was okay and still ready for surgery! Him and his whole team are so caring and amazing. I have already recommended him 2 others girls and one of them has already confirmed and schedule her surgery!"



"First off I'd like to thank Dr Edwards and his team for their amazing work and attention to detail. From all my beginning appointments , consulting and follow-ups. I went in for a Breast Explant surgery with a lift. Its only been 2 weeks and I'm healing wonderfully. I know I got a ways to go but im extremely happy already . Things will only get better. Thank you again for everything and I'll definitely recommend him and the team in the future. Shaylie"
