Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Powers "Effective communication is prerequisite for good medical care. Not all problems are easy to solve and not all clinical questions have answers. I will do my best to apply the science in my field to serve the interest of those patients for whom it can provide benefit. I can neither endorse or discourage "alternative" health concepts since, generally, there is insufficient science behind the claims that are being made, one way or the other."
