Patient Care Philosophy: “My approach to patient care is that I place my emphasis on viewing the patient as a whole, considering their systemic health and how that can relate to a variety of ocular conditions. I believe in clear and effective communication of my exam findings to patients in order for them to better understand how to best maintain great vision and ocular health,” states Dr. Edwards.


When describing herself, Dr. Edwards states: “I enjoy traveling, spending time with friends and family, and shopping. I especially love the beach, cruises, and Disney world!” 


She also loves spending time with Ember, her Shih Tzu.
