My first appt. was for a frozen shoulder & yesterday was for bursitis in my hip. The first time I called, I was told he had no appts for 2 weeks but when I explained my shoulder pain was unbearable, the receptionist spoke w/Dr Powell & got me right in. An X-ray , a cortisone shot & 3 wks of physical therapy did the job 4 my shoulder. This is a fantastic Dr & he is not a pill pusher. No time 4 chit chat Instead you get a thorough check up & treatment plan. Hip & shoulder pain is gone!

Extremely poor overall experience. Attitude appeared to be that I was wasting his time, and he had better things to do. Spent about 5 minutes in room. Did not ask for additional x-rays to better understand fracture. Spent very little time explaining condition. Had to drag information from him as to prognosis and what to do. Office staff was stiff and unfriendly. Charged way too much on bill for very little assistance or guidance. Never went back to see him. Completely unsatisfactory.

Dr. Powell says...

Dr. Powell has practiced with St. Charles Orthopedic Surgery for 28 years. He has continued to pass rigorous standards required to maintain certification by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery. He is proud to be a member of an independent medical practice that allows him to provide top quality care in a cost-effective manner.

Dr. Powell specializes in knee, hip, and shoulder conditions, offering non-operative and operative treatment options. He has vast experience in performing numerous operations utilizing the latest techniques.

Dr. Powell has enjoyed living in St. Charles County since he started his practice in 1988. When his children were young, he enjoyed coaching their athletic teams, but now spends his free time on the golf course or on his bicycle.

As a former intercollegiate swimmer, Dr. Powell knows the importance of staying active, and encourages his patients to do so as well. His most rewarding activity, however, is traveling to the Dominican Republic every year on a mission trip to perform hip and knee replacements on indigent patients.
