Had a good experience with Dr. Powell and the people working with him.
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.
*Dr. Powell is a GREAT doctor, he put me at ease concerning my upcoming surgery.
the doctor asked me questions & answered my questions to help me understand my condition as a kidney donor
I was very pleased with my care.

I HAD A VERY GOOD VISIT ,IT WAS MY FIRST.
Dr Powell is the best! Any questions concerns that I might have he addresses. Wonderful doc and sergeant
The best dr ever
He seemed as if he were in a rush but he was very knowledgeable and trustworthy. After surgery I healed slowly but had minimal scars so far. He is a skilled surgeon.
Doctor has great bedside manner and put me at ease as soon as he walked into the room.
I absolutely love Dr. Powell!! He is a wonderful provider.
During my visit, Dr. Powell was unsure about an insurance question and immediately excused himself and not only found out the information for me, but had the nutritionist come into the room to speak with me as well.
