The doctor and his staff were always quick and friendly and professional. Particularly when something new occurs - arthritis, an injury - and I had questions and concerns, the doctor was able to talk about them in ways that I clearly understood and gave me direction to take non-surgical and non-pharmaceutical steps which suited me much better than being given only surgical choices. I always knew that I was in good hands.

I was able to see Dr. Powell the same week I made an appointment, and he was a very pleasant doctor. He gave me great advice, and didn’t think surgery was necessary. I’m currently undergoing PT and definitely am starting to feel better.

Dr. Powell was very compassionate about my Knee pain. I came to him for a second opinion and he recommended surgery as a secondary option to trying PRP injections. I am definitely glad we opted for PRP first because I’m feeling much better now! Thank you for not trying to rush me into surgery like another local orthopedic surgeon. I really appreciate you Dr. Powell!

Dr. Powell deserves 1,000+ (5 stars) he helped my mother after she fell and injured herself. He was making jokes, and having her smile during this time was heartwarming. Can’t thank Dr. Powell enough for fixing her up, and making her feel comfortable.

ACL reconstruction is no joke - it could be career ending if not handled properly. Dr. Powell was a recommendation from a friend after I had a bad sports related injury and needed an ACL reconstruction surgery. I'm 1.5 years into a recovery and finally feeling normal again. Some healing takes longer than others but DON'T RUSH IT! Just listen to what the doc says, do the therapy & you'll hopefully be alright like me. Thank you so much Dr. Powell, happy to write this review.

Dr. Powell and his staff are extremely kind and professional. He came as a recommendation from a good friend after I was injured at my job and was looking for an orthopedic surgeon. I needed some damaged tissue removed from my shoulder (SLAP repair). The entire procedure was very seamless, and the healing process as well. Nothing but great things to say about Dr. Powell.

Frison Weise – Sep 15, 2020
When I first met Dr. Powell I was in pure agony and didn’t know what was wrong. I was having what he diagnosed as severe arthritis in my knee, it was strange how it came out of nowhere. I guess it’s common with wear and tear on the body as an athlete. Dr. Powell was a kind professional and helped fix me up with PRP therapy, and advice on what to do at home. I no longer have any pain, and regularly visit Dr. Powell every few months.

Not sure what these other reviews are about, but every experience I’ve had with Dr. Powell has been professional, with little to no wait-times, and he’s fixed me up each time. I had a shoulder injury years back, and then a knee injury. Dr. Powell performed a second surgery on my shoulder (he seems to have fixed what the first doctor couldn’t) and then I saw him for my knee injury. He’s a world expert in the orthopedics space, I’m very lucky to have found him as my doctor.

Dr. Powell is the best orthopedic knee doctor I’ve ever seen. I’ve struggled with knee arthritis all my life after playing soccer for 30+ years, and Dr. Powell’s PRP injections really have helped. He also recommended some stretches and basic stuff to do on a regular basis to help strengthen me from the inside out. Extremely professional, and at times funny as well. Nice to have a doctor I enjoy seeing.

I had a virtual doctor’s visit with Dr. Powell during Coronavirus, and as soon as his office opened back up I was scheduled. I filled out my first patient papers and was seen within 20 minutes upon arriving. Most importantly Dr. Powell’s recommendations and PRP injections have helped to heal my knee pain. I am happy I visited Dr. Powell because a different orthopedic surgeon recommended surgery, which Dr. Powell said was not necessary.

Dr. Powell made me feel safe and secure before and after my knee surgery. I’ve made a full recovery and my injury was terrible. I owe it all to Dr. Powell. He gave me exact instruction for at home therapy which I followed to a T. Listen to Dr. Powell, he knows what he’s talking about!
