The best dr ever

4/7/2015

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.

This HEALTH CARE PROVIDER was used by GOD Almighty to save my life in March & April of 2014. He & his team team worked hard to put my insides by inside. *Dr. Powell, himself, saw why my intestines had ruptured when others had no ideas. *Dr. Powell is good, a good doctor, a good person, a good teacher, a good human being. He & his team are great. God blessed them. God blessed me.

He is always super nice and makes you feel very comfortable. He has an excellent bedside manner. On top of his great rapport he is a very thorough Physician. I have referred several friends to him and 3 are in the program working through the process now. I was pleased with before and after treatment care I received. I had minimal scarring and was so educated prior to the procedure that I had no surprises. I've had no side effects or problems after surgery. I would completely recommend Dr. Powell, WFBH, and his staff to anyone. The program changed my life and I am very thankful.

I have never EVER had a doctor show the care, compassion, or concern for my overall health or well being the way Myron Powell has...when I was beginning the weight loss surgery process, my father had very valid concerns in his mind and wanted to travel over 2000 miles to be here when I had surgery but because of his own health issues, I was concerned about him making such a long trip for a surgery that would cause me no issues - Myron offered to call him and answer all of his questions...I have never forgotten that and never had another doctor be as considerate or concerned for the whole family's well being as he was. My husband's mother died 35 years ago from weight loss surgery related complications and was understandable terrified for me...Myron took the time to ease his mind and my husband told me later, he didn't think he would have been able to sit thru me having this surgery if it had been any other surgeon...we need more health care workers like Myron Powell
