I would not suggest this physician to anyone. After a routine gallbladder surgery my wife ended up in ICU from a bile leak. The night I took her to the ER, I called their after hours # several times and the on call doctor never called me back. The whole time wife was in the hospital (10 days) Dr Powell never have an explanation as to what happened and why she almost died.

Great Surgeon!

To my husband and I, Dr. Powell is the BEST surgeon in Memphis! My husband had a complication from another surgeon in Memphis and Dr. Powell was called to fix it. He saved my husbands life and we will forever be grateful. When we said his name around the hospital, the nurses complimented how great of a surgeon we had. At our follow-up visit, the staff was friendly and responsive. We were a bit nervous because there were many people in the waiting room but our wait time was only 10-15 minutes. Dr. Powell has always addressed our questions directly, by calling himself to answer them! When he's busy, his nurse Paula is fantastic. We LOVE Dr. Powell and would recommend him to anyone in need of a general surgeon in Memphis.

Great Surgeon

Dr. Powell is a wonderful young and upcoming surgeon. Initially I was concerned with the referral to see him. However, after the first meeting I was more than satisfied with him. He was very thorough and explained everything to me in "laymans terms". I would most definately recommend this doctor. Also, Paula (his nurse) has been most helpful and is a very friendly lady. I couldn't have asked for better treatment.

Dr Powell never discussed with me the outcome of my test nor was I given any options but instead I found out through the receptionist that I needed to have surgery. Paula his nurse never returned any of my calls. I would not suggest anyone to this office to be subjected to this kind of behavior
