Dr. Powers is a saint. And I mean that. If people can be canonized by tearing their cloaks, or slaying dragons, then people who could have done just as well in investment banking (shorter hours, higher pay) should be able to be canonized too. Next time I speak to the Pope, I'll mention this.

3/8/2016

My last visit w/ Dr. Powers was very rushed and we still have never had him tell me my limitations, therefore, I have done things that caused a great deal of pain. My husband and myself are a little upset that he released me on our last visit with no explanation of what the did during my 2 surgeries I've had by him! I've had to have multiple orthopedic surgeries in the past and never experienced this degree of "see ya" prn. It really hurt both mr husband & myself. I still have the utmost good feeling with surgical skills, but absolutely NO BED SIDE SKILLS.

3/3/2016

Care has deteriorated; my trust in *Dr. Powers has deteriorated.

3/1/2016

Wait time absurd, provider friendly, nice and upbeat.

2/26/2016

I feel confident in Alex Powers and his staff

1/1/2016

I could not be more pleased with the care Dr Powers has given me. He is a great Dr.

12/21/2015

Dr Powers and staff are AMAZING! We are blessed to have them!!

10/27/2015

Dr Powers was all one could ask for. I appreciate the young doctors as medical practice is getting more complicated all the time and there are easier ways to make a living. ..
