I accompanied my father to his appointment with Dr. Powers, whom he was seeing for a second opinion. I left the office feeling comfortable and confident in Dr.Powers diagnosis and forward care plan. He took his time to explain the reasoning behind diagnosis and prognosis which helped relieve anxiety I had been having. While I am a Charleston resident, my father is not but will be traveling up to continue care with Dr.Powers. Thank you!
