He treats patients with kidney disease, specializing in acute and chronic kidney injuries, fluid and electrolyte disorders, kidney stones, and hypertension. 

Graduating with his medical degree from the University of Chicago Medical Center, he went on to complete his residency in internal medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, and his fellowship in nephrology at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.

A Fellow of the American College of Physicians (FACP), the doctor is board-certified in nephrology and internal medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM). The ABIM is a physician-led, non-profit, independent evaluation organization driven by doctors who want to achieve higher standards for better care in a rapidly changing world.

In good standing with a number of professional organizations, Dr. Edwards is an active member of the American Society of Nephrology, and the American Society for Clinical Investigation.

Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the kidneys. It is the study of normal kidney function and kidney disease, the preservation of kidney health, and the treatment of kidney disease, from diet and medication to renal replacement therapy. Nephrologists have advanced training in treating kidney disease. They diagnose and treat kidney failure, as well as help patients by prescribing medications, offering special diet advice, and coordinating dialysis care or kidney transplantation when it becomes necessary.
