What People Say About Dr. Christine Powell, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

The wait in this office is absolutely unbelievable. The long wait starts at the registration desk. One desk is for students only and the other desk is there for everybody else. I've never seen registrations take so long in a doctor's office. The next issue is that just because you made an appointment it doesn't mean that appointed time is yours and yours alone. I gave up and left 1 HOUR after my appointment time. And the appointment was 8:20 A.M. How do you get an hour behind by 8:20?

The thing I appreciate most about Dr. Powell is her undivided attention. She listens, and is very proactive about taking care of medical issues. I had HORRIBLE cystic acne, and in one visit she was able to help me get it under control. I also appreciate that the wait time is never long. I also LOVE her staff!

She diagnosed my husband with bipolar disorder after only talking to him for 10 mins. She gave him lithium and two other very strong depression medications. He is not bipolar or depressed he has ptsd and bad anxiety. He's 34 years old and has never been told he could be bipolar. She didn't even tell him she thought he was bipolar he only found out when he went to get his meds. I do not recommend this doctor. My husband is extremely discouraged now and won't go to another doctor now.
