I fell on the ice and shattered my shoulder and was referred to Dr. Powell by my doctor. My shoulder was literally in several pieces. I was in tremendous pain. He did not spend a lot of time with me, but his staff were very courteous and professional. I was quickly admitted to the hospital for the operation. It is amazing. Three (?) years later I was surprised to realized that I have been carrying heavier burdens on my left arm now, - the formerly broken one.
Dr. Powell seems like a wonderful person and comes highly recommended. Every time I have seen him the wait has been very long--over two hours. He always apologizes but that appears to be how the appointments are handled. Generally the nurse comes in and takes notes. About 20 to 45 minutes later the PA comes in takes notes. Then about an hour later or longer Dr. Powell comes.
Dr. Powell was on call the night my 6 year old daughter fell off her monkey bars. If it wasn't for his quick thinking and getting her back into surgery I worry that my daughter could have lost her arm. She broke her arm in four places and I am truly amazed that he was able to fix her arm without cutting her open. He has truly cared about her well being and continually checks on her every 2 hours. I would recommend him without hesitation.
