I can't thank Dr. Powell enough for fixing my deviated septum over 10 years ago. He also took out my tonsils and adnoids. I can actually breathe so much better, am healthier, and I'm just so happy that I found a doctor that made my nose look even better than before.

He has the credentials and seems very knowledgeable. That said, I'm 48 yo and Dr Powell recommended in 2 minutes I should have my tonsils and adenoids out. I told him this was the 1st time I ever had strep but I was basically ushered off to his scheduling team to line it up. I saw another ENT next day and he was floored that removing my tonsils was even brought up at this point. Also, new ENT told me adults don't even have adenoids so perhaps Dr. Powell misspoke. I will not go back to him

Don’t take your child to see this doctor. My 13 yo son had a severe ear infection that wasnt getting better. He spent all of 7 min with him. When I asked how his ear looked he replied “infected”. That was it. No details at all. We already knew it was infected. I had to stop him from leaving & ask if there was anything I needed to watch out for before our follow up in a week. Anything that would warrant a call or trip to ER. His reply “seizures. coma.” He said that right in front of my son.

I wholeheartedly would recommend Dr. Powell to family & friends. He and his staff Sarah, Betsy, and others over the past 8 years have provided exceptionally professional, thorough, and compassionate care. Dr. Powell and his staff take the time to personalize care to my needs, explain and discuss what is needed, and always make me feel comfortable and valued as a person and patient. I'm grateful for and confident in their care for me!

I had Juvederm with Dr. Powell and what an amazing experience! 5 minute procedure and what a difference! Saggy skin around my mouth gone! Pretty painless, quick and easy. Dr. Powell explained what filler can accomplish, what to expect before and after. Will definitely tell my friends to give it a try. Dr. Powell took the time to educate me about what certain products can help me to achieve. Can’t wait to try their laser for brown spots and red veins, possibly hair removal.

Only reason I went to this Dr was to get water removed from my ear. Was more interested in surgery because he can make more $$ than actually helping me with my issue. In the middle of my appt took off without saying bye. Didn't even look into my ears. A waste of money. He was rude arrogant.... Once you pick him you are not even allowed to switch to another Dr.... Save your money and go out for dinner it will help you with your issues more than he would....

I recently had surgery with doctor Powell and I would highly reccomend him! He is so kind and takes the time to ensure that you are receiving the best care possible. Having had two previous surgeries with other doctors, I can say that he is by far the best ENT I have had.

He fixed my nose that had been botched by my previous doctor twice. I'm mad at myself for not seeing him to begin with! He is a miracle worker, and a huge perfectionist. I could tell he really cared about achieving the best result possible, and he did just that! I am genuinely confused by the bad reviews- he spent a lot of time addressing my concerns and was super friendly; he just has a bit of an odd sense of humor.

Simply put go see Dr Powell. He fixed my very messed up nose and gave me the nose of my dreams. It is natural looking and I can breathe. He is confident and knowledgeable. I wanted the best and I got it. Ignore the bad reviews. He is a little sarcastic and witty.

I cannot recommend Dr. Powell after having a bad experience with his demeanor. During my appointment I was talked down to and made to feel like an idiot for moving my head slightly as he was performing Sinus Debridement. Further, he warned me I was going to hurt myself while he had a scope inside my nose despite the fact that he is controlling the instrument. He also scolded me for breathing too aggressively, and was upset that I didn't answer his questions fast enough. Bad experience.

I went to see Dr. Powell because I've had sinus problems for years and was at my wit's end. Finally, I found someone who could take some action to give me some relief. He detected sinus block and performed a procedure to remove it. I think he's very personable and made me feel very comfortable. After my surgery, he gave my mother all of the information that she needed about my recovery. Since the surgery I have been able to sleep much better. Now, if I could get rid of my allergies I'd be set.
