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.

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.
