I have known Dr. Powell for some time now and I have never not known him to be anything but caring, sympathetic and an excellent surgeon. He is a conservative doctor and will exhaust all options before doing surgery. He is one of the rare doctors that truly cares about his patients and their well being. I recommend many people to him and everybody has been completely satisfied.
I have had nothing short of excellent service provided by Dr. Powell and his Santa Monica staff.I recently had my second shoulder surgery (first, left, second, right) with Dr. Powell at the helm. I've been a patient of Dr. Powell's at the Santa Monica location for nearly ten years. While there were many in between years, whenever I would come in again, Dr. Powell and his staff would remember me, at least feign happy to see me, and treat me uniquely...so A1 in hospitality. As far as the surgery itself, Dr. Powell was confident, kind, expedient, precise, and thorough. My left shoulder returned to 100% strength and mobility and I expect the same again with the right upon my conclusion of physical therapy...again, A1. The Dr. Powell and staff are, and always have been, attentive to and genuinely interested in my post-op needs and concerns...again A1. Three of kind is a hard hand to find in Surgery Land.
...everyone in the office from the receptionist to the coordinators. To the interns to the nurse practitioners to the doctors were exceptional, very friendly, very knowledgeable and very accommodating. I would send anyone needing orthopedic surgery or care to this facility
Dr. Powell is the absolute best when it comes to orthopedists. I injured myself playing soccer and it unfortunately required surgery to repair the damage. I of course was super nervous as I am very athletic and play multiple sports so I wanted to make sure I would be able to return to all the things I enjoy doing. He assured me I would be able to get back on the field. I was given a recovery time of 6 to 8 months to get back and sure enough I am back. I couldn't be happier! Not only is Dr. Powell amazing at what he does but the entire office staff there is fantastic! I highly recommend him to anyone looking!
