“I will struggle to put into words my admiration for Mr Edwards. After months of poor treatment by a local NHS consultant, Mr Edwards saw me promptly, listened very carefully to my description of my accident, examined me, scanned me and operated on my broken and twisted ulna the following week. His professional approach, great skill and caring manner have meant I now have a fully functioning arm and hand and will be back playing tennis tomorrow.“

    Mr Edwards is very professional and always took the time to explain everything to me and regularly came to my bed during my hospital stay. He was very caring and even bought me an easter egg whist bed bound with no visitors during COVID lockdown. I have not come across a better doctor. I have had 3 surgeries from Mr Edwards and could not have asked for better results. His stitching was so good that i have minimal scaring!

    Dr Edwards made me feel so comfortable with what we were doing. He was at all times very kind, caring and professional and very knowledgeable. I felt in the best hands and I thank him for taking care of me so well. His manner was impeccable and his compassion was so key to me specially when going through surgery on my own as my mom couldn’t be here due to COVID travel restrictions.
