I started seeing Dr. Powers in my mid-20s and continue to into my 40s. He may have a bit of a dry personality but he is always professional, thorough, and accurate in his diagnosis.

1st meeting with this doctor: Waited almost an hour to be seen. Receptionist was having a loud personal phone call that she finished before checking me in MD "interview" was awkward - he talked over me, and into his recorder. He did not do an examination at all. The icing on the cake...... Blatantly incorrect information in my list of problems/diagnoses in my online medical file. Not only will I NOT be back to see this doctor, I highly recommend that no one else sees him as well!

I felt very uncomfortable and unsupported in my intetaction with him. I found his tone rude and almost chastising. I will not be going back.

During a time when I was very sick and confused I did something 'wrong' by seeing another doctor once, and when I returned to Dr Powers he berated and humiliated me to the point of tears, and then he continued doing that till I was traumatized. When I mentioned this to another physician's assistant she confirmed that this was not only totally unprofessional, but that his analysis of an aspect of my condition was totally off the mark.
