Dr. Powers was attentive. He kept a close eye on my broken foot and toe. I previously had a knee surgery by him which was treated the same. He is also punctual which is very important to me, as a business owner, I don’t have time to wait hours to see a specialist.

Ok, there was a long wait before I seen him. It took 2 months from my appointment date. Now was he effective and personal very much so. It was all worth it to me. I have seen some Orthopedic doctor's in my time. A good one is hard to come by. I felt comfortable and heard by Dr. Powers. We will see what's next.

This doctor can NOT deliver what he suggests and/or recommends, espically if you're trying to get a PRP injection. I waited more than 5 months and his clinic every month gave me a diffident excuse that the injection was not ready (blaming it on Admin paper works & vendor). On my visitations every time I waited around 2 hours to see him, even when I had appointments. He works at class D type of clinics. He can talk and give you a good speech, but his clinic can not deliver what they promise.
