Best doctor ever! He delivered my second child only a week ago. My first labor had been with another physician and was a horrific ordeal including pushing for 3 hours, exhaustion, and lots of dry heaving from said exhaustion. With drEdwards' c-section delivery last week, it was the complete opposite! He closed every layer, was quick and confident, and after a week, I feel virtually no pain. I was released from the hospital in 48 hours. (That's the same length of time it took for the first labor, which was vaginal) I also felt no need for pain medication 4 days after the surgery. The hardest part of healing is remembering that I just had major surgery and not trying to do all of the things I would have done prior to the surgery. If you're looking for a fantastic physician, go to dr joe Edwards! I was very pleased!
