After being assigned as a combat medic in my military police unit during the Gulf War, I developed a strong interest in medicine. The complexity of the foot and ankle led me to train in this field. I enjoy the challenge podiatry medicine and surgery present. It's very rewarding to find the right treatment for each individual patient and bring relief from pain a patient may have been experiencing for years.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Powers "When it comes to my practice, I treat all of my patients like they are a member of my family. I spend as much time with them as needed to listen and explain conditions and treatment options in ways they can understand and ensure all questions are answered. Education is crucial, as I believe outcomes are better when the patient truly understands their problem and treatment plan and can commit to being an integral part of the team to get healthy."

Dr. Powers is a great doctor. He was very professional, competent and effective! I had a morton's neuroma which he removed easily. The surgery was quick and painless. The recovery time has been quick. I am at 3.5 weeks and I walked over 3 miles yesterday. I would and have recommended friends and family to Dr. Powers. Matter of fact I was referred to him from my husband so yes great experience. Thank you Dr. Powers and caring staff!

Dr Powers never acts hurried or bored with my questions. Appointments are on time. Staff is adorable competent. Before surgery Dr. Powers was very reassuring . After surgery he changed my pain pills without hesitation. First script was not effective for me. He really cares that I was pleased and satisfied with his responses. (drew pictures to help me). Do yourself a favor if you have foot or ankle problems! Thanks DOC!!!!

After going to 2 previous podiatrist, Dr. Powers was a breath of fresh air. I couldn't get over the time he spent with me, explaining what my issues were, the options that was available, and always asked if I had any questions. When I decided what to do, he made me feel very confident and was so supportive my fear just melted. The minute I woke up I knew it had worked! Pain was gone. He lives up to his bio, I truly felt like family, best experience I have ever had with a doctor in a long time!
