Her father, uncle, brother and sister are physicians and her mother, aunt and sister are nurses.

In addition to loving opera and growing California native plants in her garden, Dr. Staples-Edwards and her husband are avid scuba divers and have been all over the world.

Please do not press the issue of weight loss surgery to patients. We do not like to be pressured. If we say we are dieting the healthy and right way, please trust that we are doing that. And please do not automatically put in a claim or authorization to our insurance for the weight loss surgery without patients consent.

That my provider was relaxed, very confident, and did not rush through the appointment. She explained what I needed to do o get my blood sugar levels down and when I see her in three months my goal is to have lost 25 pounds with 15 pounds left. Our goal is 40 pounds! I am so happy that she showed concern and spoke to me like a normal person and did not lecture me, her approach was sensible, caring, and most of all explained what my blood sugar levels meant and how I needed to stay on track to live longer and enjoy life! I really enjoyed my visits and I am looking forward to seeing her again with good news of my weight loss!!!!
