I was referred to Dr. Means Powell by my former Oncologist in Chattanooga who had attended medical school with her. What I most appreciate about her is that she cares about your overall health and recommends food choices/diet that help to prevent a recurance of cancer. She is compassionate, caring, personable, and communicates well. I highly recommend her. Early in my breast cancer journey I had bad experiences with oncologists. Dr. Means Powell is exceptional.

I met Dr. Julia Means-Powell while very ill in the hospital. She has great bedside manner and a way of speaking frankly in a very genuine caring fashion. I am now a hematology patient of hers and she is still the same doctor I met in the hospital. She also is quick to laugh and cares about what is going on in your life that can be impacting your health.

Terrible experience. She didn't have knowledge about the importance of lymph nodes and how an extensive removal could cause arm damage and nerve pain. She kept telling me I needed this even though there was no evidence of cancer. She referred me to really low rated doctors.

She has been an amazing doctor for me. When I first met her I did not have insurance and she provided me the highest level of care. Her office was great. Now I have insurance and I look back on the compassionate care she provided and how well I am doing. All my doctors have told me what a great job she has done and how great I have done under her care. She has such a great reputation when I ever I tell people at WMC she is my doctor that all smile and tell me what a great doc she is .

When you are facing cancer you may say yes to anything doctors recommend. Do your research and don't take everything she says as the truth. Seek 2nd and 3rd opinions. I found her to recommend outdated, unnecessary surgical procedures that caused major damage.

When I moved to Nashville I researched all the breast cancer doctors in the region. I went to Gilda's club and talked with women facing similar diagnosis. I have been fighting metastatic breast cancer for 2 years. I kept hearing Dr. Means name as a great advocate for patients. She has now been my doctor for over a year. She listens very well. She has me on a regimen that is working so well. My husband and I love our visits with her. She makes me laugh, I feel so special and well cared for .
