Dr. Alun Edwards's Ratings
Being a diabetic, I have seen many doctor`s over the years and Dr. Edwards is the absolute BEST, bar none. His secretary has a problem returning calls and communicating but you just have to keep calling back because he is more than worth it. It`s like having a good friend who`s a doctor and you go in and have a casual chat where he listen`s to you and you can bounce ideas off of each other. I would personally give him a 10 out of 5 if I could.
Wonderful doctor. Very professional, very matter of fact, ready to do business. Explains easily but thoroughly. Gave me two separate thyroid biopsies in his office. Allowed me to try med I had done research on and asked for. Listens to you and doesn't have that "I am God," mentality that I have heard so many endocronologists have. He works with you which was a real treat. A real keeper. I won't go to anyone else. I trust him implicitely.
I'm looking for an endocrinologist and after reading the glowing reviews on Dr. Edwards, I called his office for an appointment. Voicemail from his assistant came on which stated that calls would be returned within 48 hours so I left a message. A day went by, I called again, and the same message came on. I waited longer for Dr Edwards' office to call me. A month has passed and I still haven't heard from his office. This is so unprofessional and they did not keep their word about returning calls in 48 hours. Even if they stopped taking any more patients, it's just courtesy to call back and tell me. I am not impressed!!
Dr. Edwards is THE best Doctor I have ever come across. He listens, he is friendly, he is punctual, and he CARES!!! The last Doctor I had treated me like a research experiment so there wasn't any value or help provided to me. If there is an issue, Dr. Edwards will communicate with me in a way that is direct, providing reasons to why there is an issue, what I can do to fix the issue, and always be there to follow up. He is exceptional! I wish I can find a GP this good! I am thankful I have him as my Endocrinologist.
Dr. Edwards is always professional, well informed of current advances in the field of endocrinology, actually listens to what you say and offers value-added advice and is non-judgemental. His excellent interpersonal skills reinforce his genuine care for his patients. The only negative I can think of is there are not more like him in the profession.
I've been lucky enough to count him as one of my doctors for the last 8+ years since I was diagnosed with a rare disorder. He's very understanding, always has suggestions to improve your standard of living and he's willing to try new things in order to accommodate with your life style. He's really helpful and caring, which is a bonus in a doctor.
