Such a great Doctor. So very satisfied with my surgery.
in Sandusky, OH |
Dr. Powers and his staff are a world-class medical team. I had Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Release Surgery on June 5 and I'm healing just as he said I would. Everything went great and I could not be happier with the entire process. I'm pain free and have close to full sensitivity back in all my fingers. Also they valued my time during appointments and followed up to check on me every step of the way.

I have had an excellent experience with Dr Powers. He did an amazing job on both of my knee replacements.

I'm not completely recovered yet from 2 total knee replacements, however so far I'm very satisfied with the results, and with Dr. Powers. Would recommend him to anybody searching for a orthopedic surgeon.
in Vermilion OHio |
Dr. Powers was a great doctor. Got in to see him very fast. Waiting time was acceptable. I had a complete knee replacement. Was home the next afternoon. Pain was probably less than most people I know having this surgery. Had zero health problems after. Scaring is minimal and almost a perfect straight line. PT says I am Way ahead of most of the knee patients they see. Asked for the phone number :)
in Crestline, OH |
Dr.Powers was very professional & listened to my concerns. I would recommend him to family & friends!
in Norwalk OH |
I was very pleased with my entire experience with Dr. Powers and his office staff. I was always comfortable asking questions and was pleased with the manner and time that my phone calls were returned. I will have to have another knee replacement and will again trust my health care to Dr. Powers and his staff.
in New London, OH |
I had damaged my rotator cuff and after physical therapy only helping me a little, I met with Dr Powers. He performed surgery on my shoulder and after two weeks, I am doing fantastic and not far from being totally healed with very little pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Powers....he is a fantastic surgeon.
in Norwalk, OH |
Had very painful knee pain, Dr. Powers did a knee scope and cleaned my knee up, and fixed some other things while in there. I was off knee with no weight bearing for three days, and after that I was weight bearing and walking with very little pain, to no pain at all. Dr. Powers was excellent before, through, and after the procedure.
in Monroeville,OH |
Excellent surgeon and experience!!
in Bucyrus, OH |
One of the best experience that I have ever had. Dr. Powers and his staff are smart, friendly, kind, and I could keep going on and on!!!!! If I would have known that it was going to be such a great experience, I would have done this surgery a lot sooner!!!! I know it sounds weird to say this about a surgery, but it is true!! It is amazing that I have no more pain in my knee when I stand up, to me is life changing. Thank you ALL for treating me, and taking care of me!!!!!
in Wakeman, Ohio |
I have had both knees replaced by Dr. Powers. The first one was in October 2014 and then again in October 2016. Both times he was wonderful to work with. He always takes time to discuss and explain everything with his patients and answers all questions with great explanations. I never feel rushed when I am in the office to see him.
