Ratings for Dr. David C Edwards
My family has seen Dr. Edwards for almost 10 years. We have always found him to be very attentive to our needs. We have almost always been able to get in to be seen on the same day we call, which I think is great because he has a very busy office. Also, I might add, that he is one of the most punctual doctors I have seen, I usually wait only a few minutes from the time I arrive. My husband recently had a check up with Dr. Edwards and he was impressed that Dr. Edwards called him personally the next morning to tell him about his lab tests.
Go somewhere different. This doctor has a terrible bedside manner. Everthing prevoius poster stated is right on. My family has been with this Dr. for seven years. Mostly because we were slow to switch. He is arguementative. Told me that I didn't feel like I was describing and that I didn'thave the fever that I had. He told my husband he would not advise getting off his asthma medicine when he hasn't had an attack in 12 years. The doctor said the only way to get off of the mendicine is to try to stop taking it, but would not advise my husband on how to do this safely.
I have to say that Edwards DOES keep his appointments on time. I have appreciated this but after several years, I think I should find a better doctor. Primary interest seems to be in generating revenue. He does not seem to have any personal interest in patients, at least myself. Big hurry to provide minimum service of current complaint. He seems to generally ignorant of side effects of drugs he prescribes. I have the impression that he over prescribes antibiotics. When I was diagnosed with a viral infection, he offered to give antibiotics. When asked why he would give antibiotics for a viral infection, he replied that patients usually wanted to given something. Huh? Several times when asked for help with problems that a general practice should handle, he wanted to refer to other doctors, which didn't inspire much confidence. Lastly, his is sarcastic and comes off as being arrogant. This may be a common sin with MDs but I don't need the abuse.
