Verified Patient Reviews
The wait time was over an hour, but the nurse made me aware of this shortly after I arrived. She apologized and indicated that this is not the norm. I really liked both the nurse and Dr. Edwards. Both were very thorough. This was my first visit and I plan to return in the future should the need arise.
I can't say enough good things about her. She has been my primary care physician for a number of years, and I am so grateful I found her. She is attentive, listens, and always takes all the time needed for an appointment.
Dr Edwards was down to earth and made me feel completely comfortable. She really thought about my issues and I did not feel rushed at all. She was the perfect amount of cautious and thorough when it came down to diagnosing and treatment options. I highly recommend her.
The office was very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. Dr. Edwards really listened to me.
I would highly recommend Dr. Edwards. Her office is very nice and conveniently located near the subway. Her office staff is very friendly. I was taken back within 15 minutes of my appointment time. Dr. Edwards is very friendly, makes you feel very comfortable. She is thorough, attentive, and efficient. I really liked her and would highly recommend for anyone looking for a PCP.
She is a very good doctor.

Dr. Edwards was very good and helped me with any concerns I had. She was very attentive and answered all my questions and gave me great advise with out making me feel bad about myself ! also her nurse who I only got her first name dawn was great as well! she had such a great sense of humor and made my time being there a good experience! both of them were GREAT!
She's a first rate doctor. A straight shooter, kind and funny and is my GP, who I've been seeing for about 4 years now. I highly recommend her.
She was great! Made me feel comfortable and gave great feedback and advisement with out making me feel bad about myself. Looking forward to having her as my Regular Doctor.
There was no appointment on file. I was not expected. Another patients info. Birthdate, insurance etc was in my place.
A caring, smart, funny doctor. Highly recommend.
She took time to get to know me -- a new patient --which is what I wanted even though I was probably wasting time. She took care of the one medical problem I have in a few seconds. She listened well to what I want in medical care.
I was so disappointed when my previous doctor (who I loved) from this office moved. I liked the office itself (it's clean and convenient) so picked Dr. Edwards somewhat at random out of their roster. I like her even more than my previous doctor! She was professional but also friendly and even cracked a few jokes. She did not seem rushed at all, and was very thorough and organized. She even went onto google at one point to try to find the name of a specific specialist she wanted to recommend for me. I highly recommend this doctor!
One of my all time favorite doctors. Attentive and very helpful.
Great experience! The entire staff was extremely friendly and personable. Dr. Edwards made me feel very comfortable and the entire visit was as seamless as possible. I was very happy with my visit.
Dr. Edwards was wonderful. I feel like my appointment was collaborative and that she really listened. I went for an annual physical and had a list of things to discuss. She listened to each of my items and tailored my follow-up based on our discussions. She was friendly and genuine. She had a very caring manner. The office staff and Dr. Edwards' nurse were terrific! Efficient and friendly. It looks like this is a one-stop shop for most of your medical needs. I had some routine vaccinations and my blood drawn for lab work right there in the office. I would highly recommend this office and Dr. Edwards!
Amazing! She was very caring and thorough. I would definitely see her again!
My visit with Dr. Donna Edwards was fine - she listened carefully and thoughtfully. Offered various referrals and additional supports to my health and well being.
Dr. Edwards was knowledgeable about my particular concerns and was also attuned to my medical history as it relates to my current general health. She asked relevant and important questions and listened carefully. Just what I was looking for in a primary care physician. Overall I found the appointment helpful and I plan to see her again. I should also note that the office staff were efficient, friendly and professional, and I was seen at exactly the time of my appointment.
I've been seeing Dr. Edwards for a while now as my primary care physician. She is highly knowledgeable, has a gentle, friendly manner and engages you as the patient in the process.
Dr. Edwards exuded a good mix of friendliness and strong scientific/clinical expertise. She was very thorough and when she didn't understand a certain issue, she would seek consultation right away.
She's great. It's so hard to find a good doctor in the city and she's caring, thoughtful, and thorough in her work.
Great Team at the front desk. One of the nurses was extremely nice and quiet funny, it made my visit go a lot smoother. There was barely any wait time, I was in and out of there. As for Doctor Edwards herself, she listened to all my concerns and did exactly what she could to help. Overall it was a great experience !

Great experience, very friendly staff and clean office. Dr. Edwards was very thorough and happy to answer all of my questions. I felt like she was really listening to all of my concerns.
She is pleasant but not very good.
She is super helpful and friendly and answers all my questions/ suggests solutions to concerns I have. I was seen on time and everything was quick yet complete.
I dont know if it was because of the hour I went but I was taken in right away. Dr.Edwards is very nice and accessible, good bedside manner.
Dr. Edwards is now my GP. I've seen her seven or eight times. She's absolutely wonderful. Thoughtful, caring, astute and kind. It's clear the staff there likes and respects her too. That entire facility at 222 West 14th Street is excellent. Sparkling clean. Friendly and efficient desk staff. Terrific, smiling nurses, and excellent lab technicians who take your blood without you even realizing its been done. I can't say I've ever been as happy as I am with Dr. Edwards and the entire team there. It's a first rate medical facility.
So far so good. The doctor was very thorough. She didn't dismiss my concerns and put me at ease. The staff was nice and the office was very clean.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Dr. Edwards was friendly, and I didn't feel rushed talking to her. This was my first time meeting her, and I plan to use her as my PCP. I appreciate that her hours are flexible as well.
An unusual capability. She can listen :)

She took her time to talk to me and listen to my concerns. She offered advice and followed up when needed.
Dr. Edwards is a wonderful, caring, competent doctor, who I've seen many times and is now my Primary Care Doctor. I'm an opinionated patient, with ideas that are often counter to medical lock-step views, but Dr. Edwards listens to my world view, and I listen to hers, and together we always come up with a plan that works for both of us and my health improves. I also really like the front desk staff and nurses there. They are kind, sweet-natured, efficient and the place is sparkling clean. Great facility.
Doctor Donna Edwards is calm, caring, patient, and respectful/nonjudgmental (rather than abrupt/superior/dismissive like many others). She really takes the time to actively listen and ask questions, and then is very openminded in exploring all options.
She is the best--so kind, takes her time, doesn't jump to conclusions, and takes a reasonable, measured approach to healthcare. It's easy to talk to her about anything. She does not make you feel hesitant or uncomfortable, and her staff is great as well. Would highly recommend.
Dr. Edwards has that rare combination of heart and mind. She was thorough, took the time to answer all my questions, was sensitive to my cultural background, respectful of my holistic lifestyle, and helped me feel at ease - something I didn't think possible at a doctor's office. I feel very lucky to have found her.
Refused to do blood work or send me to a specialist, when I thought I had fibromyalgia. Days later I had a severe attack, was diagnosed by another doctor who ran multiple tests and actually examined me. She, also dismissed my concern over a mole that had developed out of nowhere. Absolutely awful. She does not take her patients seriously.
Very caring, takes time to listen, answers questions and gives recommendations in a really positive and respectful way
She was fantastic, great appointment.
Dr. Edwards is one of the best Internists I have seen. She is patient, listens intently to my questions and tries to come up wiht several solutions. Fantastic bedside manner and prompt with appointments. I highly recommend her.
She is a very good listener and made solid recommendations I could easily follow. The office was bright and looked brand new.
She was incredibly patient and listened carefully. She explained things and detail and was very reassuring.
Very professional and overall a good experience from start to finish.
Donna was very clear and congenial. She asked thoughtful questions, listened to me, and was clear about next treatment steps.
She was very patient! Easy to talk to.
The prior reviews are correct only insofar as Dr. Edwards is kind and personable and spends thorough time with the patient. However, she is probably the worst diagnostician I have ever been to and therefore ineffective in providing treatment. I went to her for a couple mild concerns to seek treatment and ensure they weren't more serious. For one issue, she was indecisive, saying "I think it might be X but it could also be Y..." and for treatment, "well, you could try A, but maybe B, or possibly C" and for preventative care she had absolutely no clue. For another issue she was vaguely more sure, saying "it's probably X," but for treatment she actually looked up the condition online and said "well it says here you can try A, B, or C; or you could find a specialist familiar with this," and provided no interim treatment. You leave her office feeling like you had a pleasant chat, but without any remedy for actual medical conditions, or even confidence in her medical assessment. If you read the prior reviews, they all confirm her warmth but rarely asses her medical aptitude, which is, after all, what you need in a doctor.
Very professional, thorough, and listened carefully.
Dr. Edwards is great! very kind, and she makes me feel comfortable. The whole staff there are great too! highly recommended.
Kind, helpful, understanding. We discussed my current health and how to make better choices that actually fit my work/life schedule.
This was my third visit to Dr Edwards. She is my PCP now and I couldn't be happier with her care. She listens and validates my experience/opinion. She is very thorough and makes sure that if something is wrong we explore all avenues to diagnose. I so appreciate her! Not to mention she is very kind and funny! I highly highly recommend her!
extremely intelligent...very kind...knowledgeable...thorough...easy to talk to...awesome!
My visit was great. There was no wait. The nurse was really nice. The doctor was very pleasant and asked a lot of questions. She made me feel good. I would recommend her to my friends and family.
Dr Edwards is a refreshing presence in the world of medicine. She is an astute, able and kind doctor with a terrific, gentle sense of humor. I have seen her four times now, and like her more each time.
Good doctor. Knowledgeable and practical. Cares about patients. Can't ask for much more than that.
This was the second time I've seen Dr Edwards and I can't say enough good about her! She really listens to what you are saying and is very thoughtful in her diagnosis and treatment. Highly recommend!
The visit was amazing as always. Dr. Edwards provided me with an ample amount of information while spending a significant amount of time addressing my questions and concerns.
Dr. Edwards and staff were wonderful - extremely patient, helpful, and professional.
I've never visited a more thorough internist before. I'm a type I diabetic so I've been to plenty of doctors throughout the years. Dr. Edwards took each and every concern seriously and paid great attention to detail. I HIGHLY recommend her.
She's super sweet & like all the reviews say, has a great beside manner. Would definitely recommend her.
very professional and thorough
Dr. Edwards was truly wonderful, she had the best bedside manner I've ever experienced with a doctor. She is kind, patient, and knowledgeable, everything one could ask for in a primary care doctor. The facilities are also nice, but I do think the ladies at the front desk could be a bit more professional
I've seen Dr. Edwards three times, and she is now my Primary Care Physician. She is smart, wise, gentle and funny, and explains everything so you understand the options and reasoning in taking certain courses of medical action, or not. I've been without a doctor to call my own for years, and am extremely grateful to have found Dr. Edwards through Zoc Doc.
Dr. Edwards is such a nice person. You feel comfortable talking to her about your health issues. She is a good listener and a good doctor. I felt I am in good hands after she examined me and gave me the right prescription. I recommend her strongly. With her, you feel like dealing with a very professional sweetheart doctor. Thanks Dr. Edwards. You are the best Alma
Dr. Edwards is smart, sweet and funny, too! You can tell from her bedside manner that she really cares about her patients. After seeing quite a few doctors over the past few years that I haven't exactly loved, I'm so glad to have her as my new PCP!
Dr Edwards was awesome! No wait, attentive! I would highly recommend!
Dr. Edwards is very personable, a great listener and proactive in advice.
She was great and made me feel comfortable. She did not rush and answered all my questions and concerns.
I had a great visit with Dr. Edwards! I went in for a persistent bronchitis infection. Dr. Edwards was very professional and also funny which is a quality I haven't found in many doctors. She made me feel at ease and I will for sure be making her my permanent primary care physician. The staff was polite and very efficient as well. I did find it odd they make you pay your co-pay before you see the doctor but it made no difference to me and I actually preferred it in the end as I didn't have to wait to check out after I was finished with Dr Edwards.
Great visit, all I had to do was fill out some paper work and then was seen right away. Dr. Edwards was very helpful in answering all my questions and concerns.
Dr. Edwards was great. Her staff was friendly and I hardly waited at all to see her. She was friendly, made me feel comfortable, listened to my concerns and took her time to answer my questions, give me advice, and then set me up for the proper plan to determine what illness was affecting me. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a regular doctor her in the city.
She was wonderful, super easy to talk to, seemed genuinely concerned and invested in helping me. I would recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Edwards was very attentive and took the time to really discuss my concerns. The medical assistants and office staff were all friendly and efficient. I didn't have to wait at all!
I saw Dr Edwards for a personal issue and she made me feel at ease, right away. She is not only professional but also very comforting. She is calm, patient and went over her plan in detail. As a physician myself, I felt very satisfied with the care I was offered, at her office.
She was fantastic, no wait time and very friendly plus she actually took the time to talk with me and get to know me.
She was kind and made you feel at ease. She really listened carefully to all my symptoms and gave me a well-thought out assessment. Plus she's hilarious! So glad I found her on ZocDoc.
Excellent. Wait time And attention to detail. No sense of rush Clean pristine facility Staff very customer focused
I typically leave a physician's office feeling as though the consultation was rushed. My visit with Dr. Edwards was anything but. She genuinely seemed to care, thoroughly inquired about my medical history, and was very willing to answer questions.
She was very light-hearted and patient, which is always appreciated early in the morning. I will definitely be returning!
Dr. Edwards was friendly and helpful. I was in and out of the office in the amount of time usually spent in the waiting room.
