Recommended him to someone today.


*Dr. Powell & his staff were there for me, night & day - I will always remember *Dr. Powell, very, very good.




I feel the provider was VERY honest and forth-coming about reasonable expectations regarding my personal health issues. I appreciated his honesty and the fact that he did not sugar-coat outcomes/expectations.




Always a great experience with Dr. Powell and his staff. He LISTENS to me. Answers my questions and takes his time. I do not feel rushed. It is worth the four hour round-trip drive to get this level of care.


*Dr. Powell was amazing. Staff was very fast with appt.


WFBH is the best healthcare provider I have ever been to.


Dr. Powell was recommended by my WFBH primary provider and I found him to be as advertised. He is a very capable surgeon who believes in taking care of the problem now. I like that.


*Dr. Powell is awesome. He always takes time to answer questions and thoroughly explain everything. I have already recommended people to his office.


He had not consulted with his colleagues about options like he said he would at appt a month prior just told me to come back in a month & try to gain weight in the meantime. I told him i been trying for months i was ready to discuss options. He said come back next month& he would consult colleagues same thing he said the last month so i just wasted a vacation day at work & gas driving up there


The provider spent very little time with me and did not examine me at all. His resident assistant was the only person who looked at my problem for about 5 seconds.


i already. have told someone of the wonderful. outstanding. work. of Dr.Myron. Powell




I really cannot say enough good about this experience!


He did a good job.


This is my first visit to me so far he is good.




Dr Powell is very nice but i think that he needs to spend more time with his patients especially first time patients.


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.


Extremely pleased with provider's care and definitely recommend him to others.


*Dr.Powell performed surgery on me. He is an excellent surgeon and is extremely compassionate.


Dr. Powell is amazing. He is very attentive, friendly and courteous. He was genuinely interested in what I had to say and welcomed any/all questions. Upon explaining to me all of my options, he allowed me to determine what would be best for me. I have the greatest of confidence in Dr. Powell. His genuine spirit is unmatched.


Excellent !


Extremely confident. Knowledgeable. Informative caring. Compassionate appearance was excellent a doctor should look like as well as trustworthy!!!!! Smells good to!!!


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


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


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.
