Dr. Powell was fantastic. He spent quality time with me explaining what I could expect in the future after my surgery. I drove more than two hours each way to have him as my doctor. The drive was very worth it.

*Dr. Powell is a wonderful surgeon, and has been so good about follow up our questions, concerns or problems.

3/23/2016

Very good experience for my problems/concerns. I have had poor experiences elsewhere. This was an excellent visit.

3/1/2016

This was the first time that we met Dr. Powell and he will be taking care of my surgery. I feel very confident with him and that my treatment will be above the standard of care. I was very pleased with the provider. After finally speaking with a surgeon who seems to know what he is talking about I finally feel a little ease. This will be my 8th surgery and I only wish that I would have came here first.

2/11/2016

Very good.

2/9/2016

2/5/2016

Good.

1/23/2016

Dr. Powell has always made me feel listened to. His down to earth style makes him easy to relate to, which is why I felt comfortable having him as a surgeon. He always made me feel as though I was important, and as though I was worth his time. I appreciated that he made time to talk with my family as well when I was in the hospital. He has an excellent rapport with patients. Thank you Dr. Powell!

1/11/2016

Had a good experience with Dr. Powell and the people working with him.

12/28/2015

The Doctor appeared to be preoccupied with concerns that were outside of what our office visit was about IE, Took a phone-call while while our consultation was in session. Doctor commented on his personal life situations that had no proper place in our consult session. We generally got the feeling that the Doctor was taking our consult session too lightly. Since our consult, our next appointment has been changed from 11/22/15, to 11/30/25 finally to 01/13/16. My medical needs are extremely urgent and I suffer every day. I must say, we did not have a good feeling at all when we left the consultation. We have actually considered getting second opinion from another surgeon.

12/20/2015

good

10/22/2015

Very caring.

9/25/2015

*Dr. Powell is a GREAT doctor, he put me at ease concerning my upcoming surgery.
