  • Aug 09, 2019

    Most excellent care and communication, teaching while delivering care.

  • Aug 07, 2019

    Professionally excellent (include Casey Eye Institute for procedures on the hill). My biggest concern is that she often runs late (45 min on August 7th). Perhaps this is because there are residents and fellows there for learning, perhaps because she is meticulous and thorough, perhaps something else, but when I have a follow-on appointment it can be frustrating.

  • Aug 05, 2019

    We appreciated the attentiveness of the other help that was working on my case, and it was very informational and open.

  • Aug 04, 2019

    Wonderful treatment with all my questions answered. Professional and informative.

    Dr. Edmunds has been very articulate and clear about my diagnosis and she has helped me maintain the best possible outsource for what can happen with glaucoma. She has told me what I'm facing and we have worked to create a very good relationship and I feel confident that whatever can be done with my glaucoma has been done.Also, I....I feel very confident that my glaucoma has transitioned to a place where I have not been losing any site in a number of years and we have gone through all of that, made some changes and well, as I say, I'm repeating now, but I'm very confident*
