Dr. Lelon O. Edwards

Germantown Office

Lelon O. Edwards, MD, known by his patients as “Dr. Bubba,” is a board certified pediatrician and joined Pediatrics East in 1988. He graduated UT Memphis medical school in 1981 and completed his pediatric residency at LeBonheur in 1984. His favorite part of being a pediatrician is “seeing the kids grow up and do awesome things, become responsible adults and bring their children to see me.”

Dr. Edwards is married to Debbie, a nurse, and they have two daughters (both nurses), a son (a physician in Memphis), and ten grandchildren. In his free time, Dr. Edwards enjoys traveling to see his kids and grandkids, woodworking, boating and sailing.
