Patient Comments

  • Dec 30, 2019

    It was very good, Dr. Edmonds answered all of my questions

  • Dec 28, 2019

    Pertinent health information was given

  • Dec 28, 2019

    The very best. Explains thoroughly and takes time to listen. She loves what she does and that passes on to the staff supporting her. My own eye health is stable thanks to her knowledge and skill.

  • Dec 28, 2019

    I have been seeing Dr. Edmonds for several years off and on. She has a solid team - in addition to her, I saw Cathy, Carl, and Heather (I think). They were all competent and efficient. Dr. Edmonds reviewed the collected data and provided a summary during the visit. All of the tests were well coordinated during the time I was there. She is cautious and wants to be sure my eye pressure is stable before she releases me to my regular ophthalmologist. I feel that I am fortunate to have her looking after my glaucoma.

  • Dec 26, 2019

    All the staff is really friendly and wonderful, and my son likes his doctors and they just (INAUDIBLE) all over him need me feel very comfortable.

  • Dec 25, 2019

    Always good but as often the case running late (30 min)

  • Dec 23, 2019

    I just think very highly of Dr. Edmunds and she's above and beyond that expectation I have had in doctors. She's kind and considerate she listens to you carefully and you never feel rushed and she's just top notch as far as I'm concerned. Thank you.

  • Dec 21, 2019

    Dr. Edmunds and her fellow were very professional, direct, and kind. In this pre-operative visit, Dr. Edmunds took all the time needed to answer fully my questions and concerns about my upcoming surgery. This was very much appreciated and I would recommend her without reservation to others with similar eye problems.

    expert in her field, kind, compassionate, listens

  • Nov 22, 2019

    Yes, the service and help of the doctor was excellent, but I waited an extremely long time. My appointment was at 11 and I didn't see the doctor until almost 12:30 and I think this really detracts from her effectiveness. She is incredibly overbooked. Thank you.

  • Nov 20, 2019

    Everyone at Casey Eye Institute was very professional, answered my questions, was very nice and courteous to me and was very efficient. After my visit I felt much better about my vision problems. Everyone was also very helpful in giving me copies of my chart notes which I need to send to the FAA in order to keep my medical certificate as a pilot. Thank you to everyone.

  • Nov 16, 2019

    My provider was very attentive to my problem. The only missing element was the lack of an after-visit summary on mychart.

I felt very comfortable and impressed by her and her staff.
