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.
