Patient Comments (1)
Sugar Land, TX |
I had a great visit with Dr. Powell. I was impressed by his thoroughness, and how well he explained things. He biopsied several areas. I have every confidence that the removal of the lesions will go as well as the biopsies. I was impressed that he read my chart before coming into the room and asked me detailed questions about my health history. I have every confidence in Dr. Powell and went away very impressed, and I am not easily impressed by doctors. I am so glad that my wife found him.
