Insurance

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.

Biography

Dr. Edwards specializes in surgical and conservative treatment of urinary incontinence and treats various types of pelvic organ prolapse conditions using surgical and minimally invasive surgical techniques. She likes taking time with each patient in order to fully understand her condition and how it impacts her daily life so that they can decide on a treatment together. She also enjoys seeing the successful results of the intervention that she partnered with a patient to choose.

After growing up and studying medicine in the Midwest, Dr. Edwards moved to Portland in 1999 after being in practice in Chicago for four years. She came to OHSU to grow the Urogynecology Division, which only had one provider at the time. When she's not at work, Dr. Edwards enjoys seeing her sons play hockey, shopping with her daughter and watching movies or singing with all her kids.
