Came to see Dr. Powers who diagnosed cause of my complaint. At my second visit he told me my option of surgery would be the most effective or taking meds. I opted for surgery. What a world of difference. My pain went away and my mobility came back strong. I would recommend Dr. Powers to anyone.

I wished that I had found this guy earlier! My surgery for my neuropathy was just what I needed for my leg and foot. I healed up in no time and looking forward to having my other leg done! Good Doctor and a good man! He treats you like you are a friend instead of a patient! Five stars all around for him and his staff!

Dr. Powers is a fantastic doctor. He treated my neuropathy by doing nerve depression surgery. This was highly successful and nearly pain free. I highly recommend him for his care and excellent mannerism.

I NEVER write online reviews, but I believe that Dr. Powers has given me my life back after surgery on both feet/legs for nerve entrapment/tarsal tunnel after 10+ years of suffering. Now post surgery 120 days on leg #1, and 30 days on leg #2, I can say that swelling & hypersensitivity is immensely reduced, and pain/numbness is almost completely gone (I'm now planning a hike & joining a gym)! Dr. Powers is a caring & very knowledgeable doctor/surgeon. I thank him .... and highly recommend him!

I had seen another podiatrist prior to Dr. Powers. All she recommended to rid the pain were some ugly shoes.

Dr. Powers helped me with foot and leg pain. He surgically removed a neuroma and corrected peripheral neuropathy in my legs and feet. I always trusted him and felt safe and well-cared for with his diagnosis and treatment. I would recommend him to anyone needing such help.

Having diabetic neuropathy can be very debilitating for someone who works on their feet 12 hours a day. Dr Powers gave me my livelihood back by simply being the kind of Dr. who listens, ask questions, talks with you straight and gives you options to review. After researching my options we decided on Tarsal Tunnel surgery. The results on the right leg and foot were so successful we did the left leg and foot. I highly recommend Dr. Powers and his staff, a great addition to my family. Thank you.

He did Tarsal tunnel surgery on my foot. $2000 out of my pocket and a painful rehab. I went to two other podiatrists later on who told me they never do my type of surgery without first doing a nerve conduction study-which Powers never did. (they both said my type of surgery was rare). When I did the N.C. study it was found I had neuropathy-not tarsal tunnel syndrome! I trusted Powers. That was a mistake. He's in it to get money out of your pocket. If he recommends surgery, get another opinion.

Dr. Powers was very professional and gave me excellent patient care. He identified the bone spur on the big toe joint and hammer toe on adjoining toe. He was thorough and was very accurate in describing the healing process. He has a great sense of humor and was a pleasure to work with. The end result is no more pain!

At my first appointment it became clear that Dr Powers was the first and only doctor who read all the previous diagnoses, and reviewed the x-rays, CAT scans, and MRIs of all the specialists I had been seeing for the previous two years. He speaks plain English and quickly and correctly diagnosed my foot drop problem as a nerve constraint issue while talking to ME, not a COMPUTER. He performed minor surgery, which has restored total control over my foot. I have full faith in Dr Powers' ability.

I was very pleased with the amount of knowledge and caring Dr. Powers and his staff show their patients. The minute I walked into his office I had a good feeling. His MA was great, she was caring and listened to me about my issue. I saw how Dr. Powers interacted with another client before me and he was the same way with me. He was great informing me on what the treatment options were for my condition. At the time of my surgery he spent time with me and my husband answering all our questions

I recommend Dr. Powers without hesitation. He is caring, competent, and personable. Having had a number of surgeries on my foot since the age of six, I've experienced a number of physicians--orthopedists and podiatrists--and would rank Dr. Powers as one of the very best among them.

Dr. Powers removed a bunion and bone spurs from my left foot last fall. By following his directions and guidance, I am recovering successfully and fully satisfied with the surgery (the incisions look great). Dr. Powers always had time to answer my many questions, and his staff, no matter who you talked with, were helpful and made sure each visit was positive. I may need surgery on my right foot in future years and for sure I"ll go back to Dr. Powers!!

Dr. Powers is wonderful! He took care of my son with the best care possible. He is very professional and compassionate about his patients well being. He explains all details about the care needed and listens to every concern. Not only did he call the day after my sons surgery to check on him, he also called me back on a Saturday when I had a concern. Dr. Powers is the best!
