I am writing this review today to say that if it were not for Dr. Powell, I would not be here to write it. From my first diagnosis with lung and throat cancers, Dr. Powell has been one of my specialists.. He monitored my condition closely through the last 10 years. I have complete confidence in his knowledge and care - he has a sincere belief in all that a doctor should be. I have many complications. He is the only one who figured out that my diaphragm is paralyzed.and treats me accordingly.

Dr Powell has notoriously over the past 3 years had the worst response rate to patients. He ordered a stat chest X-ray a week ago and has not called to give us results of it as symptomsworsen. His staff who are completely incompetent tells us to go to an ER everyday when we call for results of a stat chest X-ray. Three years ago My mother was diagnosed with cancer and it took almost a month to get procedures done to confirm cancer or referral placed To oncologists. Truly poor customer servic
