Dr. Staples-Edwards says the diversity of health problems in internal medicine keep her on her toes “There’s always something new to learn. I enjoy working with adults and teenagers and feel I am doing something worthwhile every day.”  Practicing medicine is a family tradition for Dr. Staples-Edwards.  She comes from a large medical family. 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.

Dr. Staples has always been a good listener, and when she feels I have a problem that would better be treated by a specialist, she doesn't let ego stop her from suggesting one. Her treatments have generally taken care of my illnesses speedily. She allows me to be a partner in my treatment.

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!!!!

Dr. Staples is warm and friendly and speaks in a pleasant tone. She pulled up information on her iPad for me to view regarding the ailment that I was seeking treatment for so I had a better understanding of how contagious I was and how it could affect my little one at home. No Dr. Has ever done this for me. She is excellent
