Dr Powell is the most compassionate physician I have ever encountered. He is a great listener, a trait missing in many physicians. During my wife’s breast surgery I was kept informed during every step of the way. Follow up visits have been very informative, always listening and has my wife’s best interests in mind.

Dr. Powell actually took care of my dad. During an exploratory exam, the found cancer in my dad's lungs. Dr. Powell was extremely compassionate with my dad and my family. He took time to explain what he found and what the next steps might be. He made sure we understood everything that was going on. It felt like he was genuinely concerned about my dad -- and the rest of us. Even though the diagnosis was not a good one, Dr. Powell was exceptional. I know he gave my dad the best care that he could.

I was very lucky to have Dr Powell as my surgeon when I needed an emergency surgery. He was very professional but at the same time caring. I will trust his mefical judgment any day. He also made sure that other issues that I was worried were address.
