Says one thing and then contradicts himself weeks later. Dr. Powers is an excellent doctor, but he can be subtlety rude and condescending.

Dr. Powers does not provide consistent advice. His opinions vary with appointment, although circumstances don't warrant such. His office's biggest issue is lack of communication. With a strong likelihood of lung cancer, it took 7 days and my own phone calls to get my referral to a surgeon and more than 8 days have passed while I await test results that could rule out cancer. Labcorp confimed the results were back days ago--and still no call from Dr. Powers.

Dr Powers spent 2 months successfully directing my wife's rescue and road to recovery from ARDS 15 years ago-when the odds of survival were extremely low. He has a down to earth manner and the wide life experience, (including that of having been a patient himself), to allow not only understanding a person's concerns, but also has a certain degree of empathy that many doctors do not have-and never will. A huge relief (from a patient's perspective), is that he LACKS the "Me Dr.=God" psychosis.

To me he is the most caring, thorough compassionate doctor and keeps me well informed as to my condition. I am pray he will be my pulmonary doctor as long as I need him. He is an excellent doctor and a very kind person who treats his patients with respect and double checks with me that I understand my medical condition and any alternatives that I have in my treatment. Respectively & sincerely, Rebecca Parkinson
