What People Say About Dr. Thomas Powell, MD
Reply
I have a herniated disc causing me excruciating pain!!! Dr Maul will do nothing for my pain. She has referred me to a pain management clinic but will do nothing for my pain to get me from now to my appointment with them. I was told by her office if the pain management has not called me by the end of next week to give them a call back. They are in no hurry to get me out of pain or get me with someone who will. I would not recommend her to anyone for anything.
