Ratings for Dr. Wendy Edwards
Just saw her today. I love her already. The staff were all so friendly and helpful also. I have great faith in her, she was so good to us and gave us lots of time. We didn't feel at all rushed as we have with other doctors in the past. Fantastic woman, and more inportantly, competent doctor!
If you are looking for a doctor that gets autism as a disorder that affects many body systems (immune system, GI), she is the best there is in Canada. She is amazing and extremely knowledgeable. If you don't believe in treating the co-occurring medical issues that come along with autism then don't waste her time as she has a long waiting list of patents that want to see her. She most definitely has the evidence based information to treat our children. She is an angel for our families.
Someone wrote; "I feel as if dr. edwards doesn't have an evidence based pratice and for this reason I will venture else where. I am not about to put my child on supplements and/or medication that is not necessary. Autism is not something you can treat, it is something you work with and something you learn to function with. To provide the best care for my son" I literally could not have said it better myself. Its more her own opinion rather than evidence based facts. Which is great if you share her opinion, in that sense she would be great in the way she treats our son. But I do not agree with her methods and will be going elsewhere. Loe0vely woman but not right for us and my 4yr okd who has autism.
i feel as if dr. edwards doesn't have an evidence based pratice and for this reason I will venture else where. I am not about to put my child on supplements and/or medication that is not necessary. Autism is not something you can treat, it is something you work with and something you learn to function with. To provide the best care for my son I will do my research and give him the best possible. Just because he is not "neuro-typical" does not mean I will do weird supplement things to him - if you don't do this to your typical kids, why do this to a child on the spectrum.
Dr. Edwards is an extraordinare doctor who I will definitely recommend. She's nonjudgmental, caring and very helpful. She met with me as a teenager while I was suicidal and severely depressed. She monitored and took care in her practice helping me find an effective anti-depressant and weening me off medications I was randomly put on by my family doctor. Dr. Edwards connected me with an amazing therapist after recognizing the agency I was seeking services from was not effective at all. Dr. Edwards is great!
