I have been a patient of Dr. Linda Powers for a long time. I have never had an office visit with her that she was not friendly, and very attentive to addressing my concerns as well as hers reference my health issues. Dr. Powers is extremely thorough in recognizing any changes with my health via a thorough exam and in reviewing my meducal record. Without hesitation she recommends further testing when needed. I am extremely satisfied having Dr. Powers as one of my treating physicians.
