    My daughter went into emergency with gall bladder stones, the emergency doctor said she need surgery immediately. I was given a list of surgeons to call. After calling several and being told it would be 2 to 3 weeks before she could get an appointment, I called Dr. Powell's office. They not only saw her first thing the next day, they organized surgery that afternoon. They were kind, thoughtful and supportive. Dr. Powell explained thoroughly and was wonderful. I can't thank them enough.

    I just came back from my consultation with Dr. Powell and I could not have left their office any more pleased. I absolutely loved the staff! Ms. Debbie and Ms. Donet (I'm sure I spelled that wrong), were BEYOND helpful and were most definitely helpful. I explained to them that this was my 4th doctor visit regarding trying to get weight loss surgery and they were equally and genuinely as frustrated for me as I was. I truly do believe they will do their very best to have Dr. Powell be my final dr!
    Absolutely a pleasant experience!!! Dr. Powell and staff are AWESOME!
