Educating patients is a role he takes seriously, “Any decision will be my patient’s choice,” says Dr. Edrich. “They are the most important member of the team.  My job is to ensure they understand why surgery may be recommended, understand the risks involved and have the information to make the best decision for themselves.”

He and his wife are cooking enthusiasts who love trying new foods, cooking techniques and the laughs that come from sharing a meal.
