Dr.Powers was referred to me form my pcp about 5 years ago. I have been very pleased with his care and knowledge of me and my condition.
in Covington, LA |
Dr. Powers had been able to correctly diagnose my illness after other nephrologists had told me there was no treatment for what turned out to be a false diagnosis. Dr. Powers is very knowledgeable and takes the time to really listen.
Covington, LA |
The staff was very good. Dr. Powers was sought for his specialty but he looked at the whole situation first before making decisions and observations regarding the kidneys. I was impressed and helped.
