I am always pleased with my Dr and his PA.
Dr. Powers is always terrific!
Love Dr Powers and his nurse Stacy!
Dr. Powers spent time with me and answered all my questions. Let me run again!!
Dr. Powers is a professional with a great bedside manner. I trusted him with my back surgery and I would trust him in the future. I have full confidence in his abilities and skill. I would have not trouble recommending him to anyone.
Dr. Powers is an exceptional doctor. You know he cares deeply for his patients by the attention he gives before, during, and after surgery.
AWESOME PROVIDER AND STAFF AND REALLY WONDERFUL DOCTOR
very concerned an informative with all questions an answers
I realize I have answered (almost) every question with a "5". I have nothing but praise in the way and manner Dr. Powers handled my surgery and the care afterwards. He gave me confidence from the time of my first office visit - in the summer of 2011. I had gone to about 8 doctors in Greensboro and Duke Medical Center and found no doctor that seemed to give me the warmth and encouragement that "he" could help me and I would be alright. I remember him saying that "this (surgery) is all we do". Again. nothing but praise for Dr. Alexander Powers and the entire staff (from housekeeping, nursing and the surgical team) for Wake Forest Baptist Medical Hospital in Winston Salem NC.
Good & very pleasant.
Dr Powers is not easy to talk to and often seems rushed. However, he is an outstanding doctor and a provider that I trust and would recommend to anyone.
The best ever!
I think Dr. Powers likes to do surgery, but would rather not do any of the follow-up care. he is a nice guy, but not interested in the follow-up care.
As far as I am concerned, Dr. Alex Powers is the most skilled neurosurgeon available in our area.
