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
