Dr. Powers performed a laminectomy on my L5-S1. I didn’t see him before my surgery, after in recovery or even before I was discharged the next day. The pain medication didn’t come close to alleviating my pain. I went to him because he was so highly recommended, but I am sorry, I didn’t have anything close to a highly recommended experience with him. He came off as cocky, arrogant, and refused to listen to me about my history of back issues. I obtained a 2nd Opinion, and only stayed with Powers because the surgery was already scheduled. I know my body and I am well informed and educated about my health issues, yet I felt like I was treated like a bother to him, almost like he was above my health issues.

Dr. Powers was a miracle sent to me. Without him, I would be in a wheelchair. I am off strong pain pills and my ability to walk, bend, move easily is better than ever. I would refer my best friend to him, as well as my enemies. HE is absolutely wonderfully talented and I am very blessed to have had him as a surgeon.

Doctor Powers has performed surgery on my lower back and my wife's neck. He repair a herniated disc for me and performed a fusion in my wife's neck. In both cases, our results were immediate and fantastic. Dr. Powers came highly recommended to me by a cardio-thoracic surgeon I know and I am so glad I was sent his way. I will say that getting in to see him is difficult.

He is good, however, his mentally challenged office staff gives Dumb and Dumber a new meaning. If you are in significant pain, be prepared not to receive any attention and be told over and over again, they will take down the message and pass it along to the doctor. These idiots in the office do as they please and could care less about a patient in severe pain. Good luck trying to get in. They will direct you to the ER, get pain meds and your back to square one again. Office staff are idiots
