Ratings for Dr. James Powell
My experrience with Dr. Powell was not very good. Although he was pleasant to speak with, he was almost an hour late for his appointment in the fracture clinic. His interaction was brief prior to surgery as he rleiec mainly on his understudies to explain things. I have heard from a few people that he isn't the most talented surgeon, but he does seem to care about his patients.
I had a total hip replacement on September 26, 2017 and this surgeon is amazing !! I was up shortly after surgery and the only pain I have ever had was due to the incision .... I was walking 6 days post op without any aides and didn't use the raised toilet seat or the bath helper , just did once ..... his staff is excellent as well and Colleen his nurse is also wonderful !! I could not have had a better surgeon !!!
I cant thank this man and his team enough. They have tottaly changed my life. Everything from the referal, to the apts, surgery, aftercare... everything, perfect. I am 38 years old, and have been given a second chance at a pain free life. I received a full hip replacement. 5 stars, A+.
Having Dr. Powell as my surgeon following my motor vehicle accident was simply a blessing. My case was exceptionally complex with a shattered pelvis that required 3 operations to piece it back together again. And once it had healed, a total hip replacement since the cartilage was destroyed in the accident. I am now walking and operating pretty much as if nothing had ever happened...... Thank You Thank You Thank You Dr. Powell and staff!!!!!
This is my third hip surgery done by Dr. Powell and all 3 are successful. So pleased with his team before, during and after. He is very busy, which for appointments is tough when waiting long periods. His work and professionalism is impeccable.
Dr. Powell does not seem to care about his patients. I had a major hip surgery and still have aches and pains 2 years later. I was told I don't need physio ( after having a broken hip??) but I did it anyways which seemed to help quite a bit. One of two times he saw me in the hospital immediately following the surgery, my pain control had failed (epidural fell out). He stood there watching me writhe in pain. At a later follow up appointment he told me he wouldn't recommend that I have an additional procedure to fix a congenital leg problem because I "wouldn't be able to handle the pain". I don't think anyone can handle pain after a major surgery when their pain meds stop working.... I am now seeing a different orthopedic surgeon who is fixing my leg problem, the pain has been very manageable. I was talking with one of her nurses who had worked with Dr. Powell a few years ago, even she didn't have anything good to say.
