Our Mission

Establishing meaningful relationships with patients and their families for improved healthcare outcomes, continuity of care and a stellar patient experience.

What Makes Our Practice Different?

Zara Medical Aesthetics was created with you in mind. With options for patients with and without insurance, the hassle with going to the doctor will be eliminated. With direct access to your physician and a limited patient panel, you will be more than just another patient. By offering care for insured, underinsured and uninsured patients, the overall health of the community will improve. Without a large overhead and a waiting room full of sick patients, Dr. Edwards can focus on one patient at a time with extended appointments if needed. This is how doctors practiced years ago and it is starting to make a resurgence. The research has shown that patients who have a doctor utilize emergency rooms less and have better outcomes.
