Ratings for Dr. Peter Powles
Very poor patient centered care, no patient education at all (actually barely even any speaking), and most importantly, a questionable and almost GENERIC treatment plan that my other care providers disagreed with..Most of the appointment was spent scribbling notes and he barely assessed me. All he did was give me a CPAP machine with pressure settings that worsened my sleep and left me more tired and depressed. Treatment almost seems very cut and dry especially considering my case was mild and non existent in some sleeping positions. please arm yourself with questions and question your treatment plan if you have any uncertainty. Ask about other options.
Dr. Powles was punctual, a careful listener and willing to outline several options for my mild sleep apnea, and then encourage me and give me excellent advice about my choice. Excellent.
He is excellent, if you're patient, respectful, and mature. A lot of the reviewers here seem to be rushed and looking for a miracle cure. Nobody can snap their fingers and fix you. You're never going to be happy if you live your life that way. Dr. Powles is very patient, takes the time to figure out what the necessary next steps are, and he is very professional and knows what he is talking about.
Every single appointment runs an hour late. Only interested in booking repeat appointments so he can keep billing for superfluous visits. Wastes appointment time reading a chart instead of being prepared for each patient. Doesn’t listen. I work in healthcare and wouldn’t wish this doctor on my worst enemy.
Dr Powles is a great doctor. There was a significant wait time but understandable as he is a specialist. My questions were answered and I never felt rushed. I called his office a number of times with questions and his secretary is very nice and pleasant. Overall I was very happy with my experience!
I find it extremely rude when a doctor has no eye contact with you and more concerned about writing then actually listening to what your saying and what your concerns are. With a nursing background i can say he is unprofessional and lacks bedside manner. I will try and seek another doctor who will actually care for me as a patient and not a number. I left my appointment today feeling frustrated and upset that my concerns with Fibromyalgia, chronic pain and fatigue makes it difficult to find a dramatic improvement with my energy levels. Instead of understanding me he feels increasing the pressure of the C Pap will turn me into a superwoman and reverse everything. 6 years dealing with this and I can honestly say each treatment is a short term fix. Hope this helps
Everytime I called for the status of my referral it seems the office was closed for vacation. The messages I left did not receive a response. I finally got fed up and was referred to Dr Lerner, now she was fantastic and I always get a prompt and pleasant response from the young lady in her office.
I find it incredibly unsettling that some people were unsatisfied with Dr. Powles and only had negative comments to share. I feel the COMPLETE OPPOSITE! I first saw Dr. Powles roughly 6 years ago and I was going through some pretty hard personal and emotional issues at the time as well as health concerns that were becoming debilitating. I was a mess and I was the biggest pain and irresponsible patient as I kept cancelling appointment after appointment, rescheduling non stop last minute and instead of giving up on me and being fed up, I received a ton of support and understanding from both Dr. Powles and his AMAZING Secretary Betty. When I finally met with him, he set up all the necessary tests and when we followed up, he told me about his findings and explained the diagnosis in full making sure I was well aware and understood what was going on with me. I found him above and beyond caring and he put everything into giving me that personal attention. From the first meeting to every appointment I've ever had with him, the care I've received has always been consistent with being what I think and feel to be nothing but the best! I hope he continues to stay as my physician for as long as I need him! He's an amazing doctor and I'm beyond thankful I was referred to him! 😃
