January 27, 2017

What an excellent physician!

January 26, 2017

I liked hearing the possibilities of what could be causing the problem,the choices as to what could come next and tests needed to rule out/in what the issue was with my knee. Dr Powell is great

January 24, 2017

Amy Powell excels in all the above, to include her consultation and support staff.

January 23, 2017

Dr. Powell was very respectful, pleasant, present and attentive. She took the time needed to process 2 sets of x-rays and went over my condition and options thoroughly. Actually enjoyed my time with her.

January 22, 2017

would have liked some exercises to take home, since therapy wasn't scheduled until two weeks out

Dr. Powell was extremely helpful and gave me excellent information.

January 06, 2017

Dr. Powell provided excellent care. She was respectful, thorough, yet efficient. She spent time to answer all of my questions. I would strongly recommend her as a care provider.

December 26, 2016

She was amazingly helpful with many alternatives to surgery! so knowledgeable and easy to understand!

December 26, 2016

Dr. Amy Powell not only took care of my fracture, she was also very concerned about my difficulty with bone brittleness. I have been going to an endocrinologist for this problem (in Oregon, not at the University of Utah) and explained that after ten years of working with him, he told me there was nothing more he could do and that he felt as if he had truly failed me. Dr. Powell listened carefully, empathetically, and then suggested that I go to a physical therapist who specializes in bone health. I was grateful for the suggestion and look forward to being able to do something, it might not help, but it will give me hope!

December 23, 2016

Dr. Amy Powell is outstanding. She is competent, intelligent, compassionate, and an excellent resource.

December 19, 2016

I am not sure the care provider listened to my concerns. she seemed preoccupied and failed to follow through with action she was planning to take. she was not familiar with my particular medical history.

December 19, 2016

excellent clinician

December 17, 2016

efficient and friendly

December 17, 2016

I really like Dr. Powell, though my second visit with her was frustrating - it felt very rushed, and I'm really frustrated about the original misdiagnosis.

December 16, 2016

Amy Powell is a wonderful and caring physician. I feel lucky to have found her.

November 29, 2016

Dr. Powell is an outstanding provider. I'd not hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing a sports medicine doctor.

November 21, 2016

Dr.Powell is one of the most competent and friendly doctors I've ever met. I highly recommend her!

November 19, 2016

Dr. Powell explained everything very thoroughly, from the mechanism of the injury, to what to expect, and what to do about it. I have osteopenia and she talked with me about that in relation to the fracture and the likelihood of future fractures, what types of activities I should be doing, and what to avoid. She was very thorough, very empathetic, and simply fantastic.

November 12, 2016

I felt very comfortable with Dr. Powell, she is very kind and knowledgeable.

November 05, 2016

Dr. Powell continues to be a top notch professional. After 5 plus years of treating me, she has always been on top of the situation.

November 01, 2016

dr powell is the best! She knows my body and how it relates to me being an older athlete group athlete. she helped diagnose my celiac 4 years ago and got me on better bone density meds she has been following up with me regularly with vine scans!

October 28, 2016

Allthough my time spent with the doctor was fair, and I well understood the descusion about my injury; i'm still hurting and nothing has been done to aleviate this part of my problem. Also I do'nt feel like the problem discussed is whats really wrong with my knee.

October 24, 2016

I first saw the fellow and medical student. The fellow did a comprehensive exam and explained to the medical student the reason for the exam movements. Dr. Powell came in and referred to the initial exam findings. She checked out a couple of the exam movements. It was obvious there was excellent communication between the fellow/med student and her.

October 20, 2016

the entire staff--from medical assistants to Dr. Powell were fabulous!

October 17, 2016

She was phenomenal! Caring, engaged, present. I felt totally listened to and involved in the treatment decision.

October 11, 2016

This visit seemed very rushed, doctor seemed to be in a hurry to just move me through the system. She said I needed a cortisone injection but did not discuss any other options with me, nor inform me of any risks or side effects of the treatment. I felt pressured.

October 11, 2016

The only issue I had was that the med she said she was going to prescribe for me did not get called in to the pharmacy.

October 04, 2016

I brought Her new problem with my body ... She came up with a great new plan to help my body !!!!!!!

October 03, 2016

too short time with actual doctor to determine "confidence" in one visit.

October 03, 2016

Dr. Powell is excellent; very thorough, clear discussion re: potential cause for pain, kind, very interested to pursue to resolution.

September 30, 2016


September 29, 2016

Dr Powell is a wonderful doctor. She informed me of what she was doing every step of the way.

September 27, 2016

Dr. Powell was informative, interested in my problem (which was not very all honesty) and friendly.

September 26, 2016

Doctor Powell is a critical listener, makes eye contact, thus making patient feel visible and heard. Her intelligence and knowledge is obvious and reassuring. A+ for the way she presents.

September 25, 2016

a very pleasurable experience in all regards

September 23, 2016

Dr. Powell is an outstanding care provider. She has an excellent reputation in the University Hospital as well as in the community. I've heard very positive feedback about her from both entities.

September 22, 2016

i could not ask for a more thorough or professional experience provided by all the care providers I saw. it was excellent.

September 15, 2016

Dr Powell is great. She takes time to really listen to my concerns and to explain my options. Her care has been critical to helping me stay active.

September 04, 2016

so delighted that I did not require surgery disappointed that 8 weeks of pt in my future and pt wouldn't begin for greater than 10 days.

September 03, 2016

I wish there were more Doctors like her.

September 02, 2016


August 30, 2016

both Doctors were great at asking questions and making sure that my input was included in any decisions. It was refreshing and surprising.

August 29, 2016

Dr. Powell's explanation to me about my bone condition and effect of continuing medication treatments was very clear and understanding. She made sure that I understood the concepts that another dr. did not describe as clearly. Plus, she is extremely knowledgeable about osteopenia and osteoporosis and its systemic effects on the body - takes a holistic approach to looking at the cause, that was important to me.

August 29, 2016

Excellent doctor. It was a wonderful experience. The doctor included me in the treatment. Very thorough. I would highly recommend this doctor to others. Can't say enough great things.

August 28, 2016

Truly professional and a pleasure to work with!

August 28, 2016

I was the beneficiary of an outstanding team approach to my diagnosis and care. Truly it could not have been better.

August 27, 2016

I always recommend the Ortho center

August 26, 2016

I'd recommend Dr. Powell to anyone in a heart beat. She's excellent and I plan to be her patient for as long as she continues to practice...which I hope is many years to come.

August 26, 2016

My doctor explained that the enlarged vain would not burst. This was one of my major worries. The swelling and pain have eased with the use of the brace. Thank you.

August 20, 2016

Dr. Amy Powell is the most friendliest doctor I've ever had. After leaving the clinic I thought to myself I wish ALL doctors had her personality!

August 20, 2016

Both Dr. Powell and Ian and John (I think) answered all my questions and concerns and spent as much time with me as needed to get the job done. Liked them all. Professional yet friendly and courteous.

August 20, 2016

I had a great visit from beginning to end. I am hopeful that we have a good plan in place and the problem will be resolved!

August 19, 2016

I very much appreciate Dr. Powell's kindness, approachability and willingness to answer any matter how basic. She is not arrogant. She seems genuinely caring and makes every effort to involve me in decisions every step of the way -from diagnosis to treatment. I trust her. I also appreciate that she takes my concerns seriously even though I'm not young or famous or an athlete and won't be signing a photo for the hallways.

August 17, 2016

Dr. Powell is thorough and always willing to spend the time it takes for you to feel informed about your situation, and make a plan for your care.

August 16, 2016

Dr. Powell is the best

August 16, 2016

Dr. Powell is extremely caring and interested in me as a person, not just a patient. All of the staff who assisted her were great. Definitely a great experience!

August 15, 2016


August 06, 2016

The doctor I saw was not really the doctor I should have seen and she admitted that my issue was not within her specialty. But she got the x-rays done, got some input from the radiologist and helped schedule a CT scan and an appointment with Dr. Tashjian. The PA I dealt with was equally helpful.

August 01, 2016

I wasn't told what, if any, follow- up was needed.

July 22, 2016

I would recommend to my family and friend to go Dr, Powell.

July 20, 2016

Amy Powell is an amazing physician that has all characteristics, knowledge and expertise you look for as a patient.

July 19, 2016

MD is very competent and a nice person. I understand how busy MDs are and I believe the one who met with me tried her best. Unfortunately, I felt underwhelmed by the experience, rushed through the system, and I felt as though my general - though serious - apprehension/anxiety of the injury re-occurring was not understood

July 12, 2016

I loved Amy and will continue to work with her

July 02, 2016

FANTASTIC care provider! What a delightful disposition and bedside manner. I will most certainly be back to see her again (and will refer my friends to her, as well).

July 01, 2016

one of the best experiences (of many) I have had with any doctor

June 24, 2016

excellent care And concern was shown by Dr Powell and also her medical intern.

June 23, 2016


June 22, 2016

Dr. Powell was excellent.

June 02, 2016

Dr. Powell listened to what I told her and didn't make me feel rushed. She went into great detail to explain my condition and what we might do to correct it. She is great!

May 31, 2016

She was great, later I realized she didn't really tell me if I should be taking an anti inflammatory or not.

May 28, 2016

Dr Powell is always exceptional and her treaments and relationship with my mother is nothing less than perfect. The patient is a very difficult case due to all her age related health issues and Dr. Powell is very understanding and courteous with her. Again, Dr and Staff A+

May 24, 2016

The issue I ended up with is still having no idea what is wrong with my leg, but the problem arose from the circumstance, not the provider. Dr. Powell was immediately concerned that I may have a blood clot and referred me for a vascular scan. I understand the seriousness of that possibility and agree one hundred percent with getting it checked ASAP. I was scanned within the hour and found to be clear/no blood clots; great news. It just so happened that left me understanding nothing about what was wrong with my very painful leg. I was given a referral to physical therapy but didn't know for what, and couldn't get a PT appointment until June 7. So I just ended up right where I a lot of pain with a gimpy leg. I'm left wondering about a stress fracture, compartment syndrome, ligament damage...Again, Dr. Powell was just fine. I only wish the system would have allowed for further discussion with the doctor after a dangerous possibility was eliminated.

May 23, 2016

Dr. Powell was amazing. She was extremely thorough and definitely took the time to get to know my specific needs. I definitely felt like she was concerned and gave me the best care possible. I would recommend her to ANYONE.

May 16, 2016

good experience

May 10, 2016

Dr Amy Powell was amazing. Very detailed, thorough and engaged. Very positive and kind.

May 10, 2016

I was somehow expecting working with a PT on a regular basis. I didnt expect to return in 9 days and then 6 weeks later. People seemed competent.

May 08, 2016

Dr. Powell is the very best. She is very caring and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her.

May 02, 2016

I had a bone density test so have to wait for results. So far my Dr hasn't gotten back with me.

April 26, 2016

All good

March 08, 2016

Dr. Powell is great!

March 03, 2016

was to receive a detailed report from doctor who reviewed the info from scan but have not received it yet 1 week later

March 01, 2016

Dr. Powell listened attentively to me and outlined a sensible treatment plan. I felt my treatment goals and hers were the same.

February 29, 2016

Again, Always Excellent. Dr. Powell is a top-notch physician and always compassionate and attentive to my elderly mother's needs.

February 26, 2016

I was well cared for.

February 22, 2016

Dr. Powell is super. She is very positive and got me an appointment with a surgeon in about 5 minutes knowing that I am from out of town.

February 21, 2016

i had a bone density scan...very helpful nurse

February 20, 2016

Dr Powell is one of the best doctor's I've ever encountered. She's thorough and friendly plus very knowledgeable

February 17, 2016

Dr. Powell instills a high level of confidence that I am being treated well. Very friendly as well.

February 17, 2016


February 16, 2016


February 16, 2016

I actually saw two care providers, Dr. Powell and Dr. Cuniff, as Dr. Powell doesn't really deal with my type of problem. She coordinated care and both physicians were excellent to work with.

January 28, 2016

Doc. Amy is GREAT & takes good . good care of me !!!

January 16, 2016

Terrific manner, very reassuring.

January 14, 2016

We were giving a business card to call back to let the doctor know how my son was progressing through his injury. Doctor actually cared about us.

January 12, 2016

Dr. Powell is always friendly, considerate and kind. She truly cares and takes an interest in you as a person, not just a patient.

January 08, 2016

I felt that the Dr. and the nurse associate both really listened to my concerns and that the medical advice I received reflected their understanding of my situation.

January 07, 2016

Dr. Powell, I know, is an excellent clinician so this might have been a very busy day/time for her. I waited a long time to see her in waiting room and after eval by fellow, then she was with me a total of about 5-10 min. She was very friendly and made a referral to PT, which I appreciated. However,her diagnosis was different than what xray report indicated and I have not received satisfactory reply via MyChart inquiry from her re: this-so disappointed.

December 28, 2015

Dr. Powell, and her interns or fellows ALWAYS have spent the time listening and explaining the details and been respectful and professional.

December 16, 2015

Afterwards I went to a podiatrist (Dr Rushton) who immediately noticed that my ligaments were very loose in my ankle. This was not looked at at my appointment here, please pass on this information for future patients. Otherwise, she was awesome!

December 14, 2015

I loved Dr. Powell! She was so nice and explained everything to me so that I understood. I would recommend her to anyone.

December 12, 2015

Dr. Powell is great!

December 08, 2015

I can't praise Dr. Powell enough...wish more physicians were like her. She is smart, compassionate, thorough and focused on solving the problem. She explains everything, is patient with all questions and uses easy to understand terms. Plus, she seems like a genuinely nice person.

December 08, 2015

Dr. Powell was phenomenal in helping me! I was SOOO pleased. She knew I was traveling from 2 hours away and was able to get me a PT appointment that day to help my issue. I was VERY happy. I wish my daughter would have been able to see her a month ago.

December 07, 2015

I love Dr. Powell! This was my second visit for a different bone/joint problem, and she was fantastic!

December 05, 2015

She's wonderful. I come across others who have her as a doctor and only good can be said of her. I've already recommended her to friends.

December 02, 2015

I am recommending Dr. Powell and your clinic to everyone I meet

December 02, 2015

Dr. Powell is VERY nice.

November 30, 2015

I have seen Dr. Powell for other injuries and have the highest degree of respect for her.

November 29, 2015

Very good experience. She made me comfortable, explained what she was doing and showed me how my bone density compared to my age group.

November 25, 2015

Dr. Powell is so friendly, she made me feel very comfortable.

November 21, 2015

I really like Dr. Powell's "beside manner". While she is clearly busy, she takes time to listen and address concerns. However, I did not receive a written summary of my visit and none was posted on MyChart as indicated there would be by the MA (Kristie). Also, Dr. Powell wants me to see a specific Physical Therapist for my condition, and this individual has no appointments remaining the entire rest of the year and won't be around starting in January. I think more communication is necessary between the orthopedic docs and the PT department. Thank you.

November 21, 2015

Care was provided by tech for dexascan and she was helpful, provided good information

November 17, 2015

Dr. Powell explained the procedure in detail, she then ask if I had any questions before proceeding. She is an excellent care provider, U of U is so lucky to have her on their staff. She is A+++++++

November 16, 2015

I felt extremely rushed like the physician could no wait to get on to her next patient. Will probably not be coming back.

November 12, 2015

Dr. Powelle, thank you very much for your quality of care. The shot you gave me has dramatically improved my gait, and I am very grateful.

November 09, 2015

Don't EVER lose Dr. Powell!

November 06, 2015

Excellent clinic. I have referred friends and family.

November 04, 2015

Dr. Powell was very caring and easy to talk to. She's a great doctor!

November 03, 2015


November 01, 2015

Dr. Powell is excellent. She has a great deal of skill and expertise, is empathetic, understanding, easy to talk to, answers my questions wonderfully, and cares about the degree of discomfort the procedure may create and does all she can to limit pain. Please keep her working at UUOC!

October 30, 2015

everything was above what I expected

October 25, 2015

Two Dr's assisted my mom who has a slight case of dementia. They were both very attentive and caring towards her and took extra time to explain the procedure that was taking place. I was very impressed. Thank you .

October 23, 2015

Dr. Powell was very attentive and did not rush through the exam and visit. She spent time explaining the issue to me and the plan moving forward. Seems like a very competent physician.

October 21, 2015

Dr. Powell is superb. I have already recommended her to friends

October 21, 2015

We will absolutely recommend both the center and Ms. Powell.

October 17, 2015

I have recommended Dr. Powell and will again if the opportunity arises. Dr. Powell demonstrates a caring attitude combined with professional competence; even when things are extra busy, she never acts rushed and gives each patient the time the patient needs.

October 12, 2015


October 08, 2015


September 30, 2015

Dr. Powell and her staff are kind, efficient, professional and just plain old enjoyable to deal with.

September 23, 2015

I'd recommend the Doc in a heartbeat... The University system in general is cold and uncaring, almost by design IMHO...

September 23, 2015

Dr. Powell is a great doctor. She is knowledgable and personable. She thoroughly explains everything, answers questions and does not act like she is in a hurry to move on to the next patient.

September 21, 2015

I have been to her before and she's just not as in-depth as I like. She basically prescribed an anti inflammatory but left me with no idea on future path (I.e., how long to heal, what we do if I am not healed by a specific date, etc.). I get that she couldn't diagnose, but she did very little to resolve my problem and I was in a lot of pain. today when I met with another ortho about a different issue I got much more info and advice. I believe that she felt somewhat rushed with me, but it left me feeling hopeless after my apt.

September 20, 2015

all of the staff made me feel as if I was only Person in the Dr. Office

September 20, 2015

I waited a very long time to spend very little time with Dr. Powell. I needed no more time with her than I spent as I had few questions; however, my investment of time did not begin to equal that which I paid for in an office visit. I wish I could have conducted the entire interaction on the phone or via email or Skype.

September 12, 2015

i do not want to bash DR. powwell . i feel she has always treated me well. this last visit was crucial me and my life. maybe a bad day for her?? im confused and need my issues addressed.

September 12, 2015

Dr . Powell misdiagnosed my torn hamstring and I have been in pain for a month thinking it would heal. but in her defense, she called me to say she had consulted another doctor and instructed me to get an MRI and then see her. She found Dr. Aoki to come in right then and talk to me. now he will perform surgery in another three weeks because he is booked already. It will be two months since my injury to surgery.

September 07, 2015

the doctor said we did not need to see her and they could have called in a prescription for us.

August 26, 2015

my problem is not resolved I still have incapacitating pain. I was only directed to PT which is not working. what do I do? find another provider?

August 25, 2015

All of the above just GREAT!

August 25, 2015

There was an easy flow of information and answers to questions.

August 21, 2015

She is the best Dr. I have ever had a patient experience with.

August 20, 2015

the 3shots recommended by doctor made the pain worse not better.

August 18, 2015

I thought the whole experience was like a day at the spa. Very professional Doctors, xray technicians, etc.

August 14, 2015

I have total confidence in Dr. Powell' clinical expertise. she is approachable and answers all questions and involves me in my care decisions. she is great. so was her resident. both very kind and thoughtful.

August 11, 2015

Dr. Powell is great! She takes the time to explain the problem, and goes over all of the options for treatment. She explains the pros and cons of each option, and ensures that you are comfortable with the treatment plan.

August 11, 2015

Dr, Powell was great. She is a great asset to the Orthopedic Center.

August 02, 2015

Doctor Powell was awesome! She kept me informed all the way through the examination, and was very approachable and friendly.

August 01, 2015

DR Powel was very professional and helpful. One of the best experiences I have ever had when seeing a DR.

July 26, 2015

I have already recommended Amy Powell to others :-)

July 22, 2015


July 20, 2015

Dr. Powell is wonderful! She is smart, kind and very through. Thank you!!!

July 20, 2015

I have already recommended Amy Powell to my grand daughter.

July 14, 2015

As always, Dr. Powell is wonderful. She apologized for the wait, due to an unforeseen event. I don't mind waiting for her at all.

July 11, 2015

Dr. Powell is compassionate, understanding of my medical issues, and provides me with the utmost care. I would recommend her to anyone needing orthopedic care.

July 09, 2015

She needed to order an MRI so there was not much she could have told me. She didnt have a clear idea about the injury and pain I have.

July 06, 2015

Bone density scan. She was pleasant, did her work and talked with me about what the print-out showed. Emphasized that a dr. would do the follow-up. I recommend all U health care services to others.

July 01, 2015

Dr. Powell is a great provider than explained my son's injury to him at his level. He appreciated that!

June 26, 2015

I thought she did a excellent job. My only suggestion would be to give the patient some written instructions / information about the next steps in thier treatment. For example some information about my upcoming injections namely the benifits & risks etc.

June 25, 2015

Dr Powell is wonderful. She's very delightful to see and really knows her stuff. I was fearful of a procedure and she made it so simple that I couldn't believe it was done.

June 24, 2015

Dr. Powell is excellent!

June 24, 2015

Dr. Powell has always been, professional, inclusive, thorough, sensitive and pleasant. She is very knowledgeable and straight forward, and makes time to answer questions as well as inform you about your situation.

June 19, 2015

Wonderful doctor. Trust her implicitly. Great care.

June 18, 2015

Dr Powell was there and amazing as ususal with me, and her team/students were also great.

June 18, 2015

Amy Powell, her support staff and the additional specialists called in, went over and beyond the best care I could have wished for

June 13, 2015

I have recommended Dr. Powell to others, which is the highest praise I can give.

June 10, 2015

May 12, 2015

overall good experience

May 09, 2015

May 08, 2015

As always, our office visit with Dr. Powell was a positive and extremely pleasant experience.

May 08, 2015

Dr. Powell was very informative and helpful in addressing my concerns and provided great advice.

April 28, 2015

Dr. Powell is absolutely the best. She's always conscientious, caring and professional. We never feel rushed. Dr. Powell takes time to present options and discusses the pros and cons of each. It's apparent that she carefully thinks about the patient's condition before the appointment. We have no reservations recommending Dr. Powell to others. We trust her completely.

April 26, 2015

Dr. Powell is wonderful! I really appreciate her bedside manner, knowledge, and willingness to include me in decisions about plan of care.

April 26, 2015

Dr. Powell was exceptional in both her clinical skills and her "bedside" manner. I felt an immediate connection with her and have confidence in her going forward.

April 24, 2015

I have recommended Dr. Powell to many friends.

April 19, 2015

the bone density tech was amazing!

April 17, 2015

The entire visit was a pleasure as the treatments gave noticeable relief.

March 28, 2015

I am impressed with Dr. Powell's expertise in finding the areas of pain in my knees and diagnosing the problem. Following some well placed shots and for the first time in years, I am walking normally! Thank you, Dr. Powell.

March 16, 2015


March 03, 2015

We were VERY impressed by the Dr's expertise, her concern for me, and the time she spent explaining my condition and my options.

February 26, 2015

Dr. Powell has a special way of making you feel as though you are speaking to an old friend that you value and trust, but remained very professional. I was very impressed with her!

February 24, 2015

Dr Amy Powell is truly one of the most compassionate doctors I have ever had the pleasure to meet. Her "bedside manner" is superior and her examination, communication skills and compassionate treatment was amazing!

February 21, 2015

Amy is a perfect balance of professional competence and personal caring.

February 20, 2015

Provided did not warn me that my sugar would go up sharply after the cortisone shot, or tell me what to do about it. Also, I thought she said this shot would work for a few months. It only worked for about 2 and a half weeks.

February 19, 2015

Dr. Amy Powell is awesome! A genuine, carring doctor. The world need more doctors like her.

February 17, 2015

The technician was new and very inexperienced. It was somewhat frightening.

February 13, 2015

Dr. Amy Powell is one in a million. She treats me like a friend, not a patient. She always takes that extra step to make your visit informative and comfortable.

February 04, 2015

Provider did not tell me that my blood sugar would elevate significantly after the cortisone shot. So when I discovered it on a Saturday, I had no plan to deal with it.

February 03, 2015

Dr. Powell was wonderful. She was very thorough and concerned with my problem.

January 27, 2015

This was my first visit with Dr. Powell. It's possible I would have rated my willingness to recommend her to someone else differently if I had had more than one visit. With just one visit, it's hard to say.

January 25, 2015

Dr. Powell cared for me after an auto accident. I referred my sister to Amy who is now my sister's physician as well. Dr. Powell strikes me as a physician with outstanding knowledge and skills, as well as, an intelligent partner to me in making care decisions.

January 24, 2015

all good

January 19, 2015

The experience could not be any better.

January 10, 2015

Dr. Powell was excellent. She was very caring. I recommend her highly!

January 06, 2015

I recommend her all the time.

January 03, 2015

Dr. Powell is the best!

December 22, 2014


December 04, 2014

Dr Powell is a wonderful Dr.

December 01, 2014

good experience

November 29, 2014

I trust Dr. Powell's expertise and recommendations and very much appreciate her professional demeanor and the way she respects me as a human being. I wish more physicians were like her.

November 24, 2014

dr Powell is a wonderful doctor that has and does answer all questions and explain all procedures why we are doing them and if I want to do them wonderfully. I love to tell people about the outstanding care and outcome I have with the team with Dr Powell. they're the best.

November 24, 2014

very positive experience.

November 22, 2014

the overall experience was great i was surprised at how fast i was seen and my outcome has been awesome best i've felt in years

November 21, 2014

Dr Powell always gives full information at my visits. She is concerned and careful to make sure I understand what options I might have.

November 18, 2014

Felt better about my issue after talking to the care provider. Fully answered my questions.

November 15, 2014

Amy Powell is an excellent physician

November 13, 2014

Our experience with Dr. Amy Powell have always been postive.

November 07, 2014

Dr Powell respected my professional background as a nurse and included me in the decision-making process. I felt she listened to my concerns and addressed them with a balance of personal compassion and medical professionalism.

November 07, 2014

Dr. Powell is excellent at meeting my request to avoid surgery until absolutely necessary.

November 04, 2014

Good experience,every people help me with my questions

November 01, 2014

Cannot tell you how grateful I am to your good-humored physicians and staff who not just tolerated, but engaged my rowdy small children. We will work on OUR manners, but YOURS were impeccable.

October 27, 2014

I really liked Dr. Powell a lot, felt she was knowledgeable, took the time to explain my options (even though my injury was relatively minor - she didn't just brush it under the rug). The doctoral fellow (can't remember his name) was great also.

October 22, 2014

Dr. Powell was incredibly thorough with her explanations. I liked the fact that she was willing to schedule my follow up appointment with her directly following the MRI. It was great to get this information without waiting and to be able to talk to her in person.

October 15, 2014

Dr. Powell and Dr. Napoli spent considerable time with explanations, plans, going over x-rays with me; impressive

October 08, 2014

THANK YOU for your help & kindness !!!!!!!!!

September 29, 2014

Dr. Powell is exceptional. Best 'bedside manner' I've ever experienced. Her diagnosis and explanation of problem was exceptionally clear.

September 28, 2014

It was the ideal balance of efficiency and almost singular attention to my problem. Just well done, all the way around.

September 25, 2014

I felt very rushed and that they were in a hurry. when I expressed concerns about other fractures, it wasn't commented on other than it is a break. very disappointed, felt like they were annoyed and couldn't care less. will use my dr for follow up and if I need to come back will request another doctor!

September 24, 2014

I was surprised by the diagnosis and as a consequence I didn't think to ask more questions until later after I came home and looked up on the internet Dr. Powell's diagnosis. I"m sure had I thought to ask more questions Dr. Powell would have taken the required time to explain more to me. She did prescribe physical therapy and I have subsequently been able to ask the physical therapist (Barbara Fink) the questions I should have thought to ask Dr. Powell. I was very impressed with the care Dr. Powell took with my exam and her level of expertise which has given me confidence in her diagnosis and treatment. I feel very fortunate that she is my doctor and I am very happy with my treatment under her care.

September 22, 2014

Dr. Powell is compassionate, and knowledgeable regarding my medical needs, I trust her decisions for treatment and will continue seeing her for mt ortho needs.

September 19, 2014

Dr. Powell treated me like a VIP and made me feel cared for.

September 18, 2014

intern doesn't know how to do procedure

September 13, 2014

I think Dr. Powell is a good doctor. However, I don't think I should have waited to have an MRI so long. The diagnosis of the exact causation of my right knee was discovered. I understand that this is an expensive procedure, but I think I have been suffering with this pain just a little to long. I kept indicating where the pain was the most intense. I do not like to criticize the doctor. I am sure Dr. Powell is a very competent doctor. She seems very caring and is very empathetic. I personally like her very much.

September 12, 2014

Dr. Powell is amazing. Gives lots of information, never condescending or hurried. Simply the best.

September 08, 2014

I'd give Dr. Powell a 6 if I had the option. She was concerned, informative, reassuring, open and LISTENED. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Powell, her resident and the visiting physician.

September 08, 2014


September 06, 2014

She didn't explain anything.

September 02, 2014

I like Dr. Powell. She seems very knowledgeable and compassionate. The shot she gave me helped. My only complaint is that I don't have a clear idea of follow-up with my sore knee. She suggested that I see my PCP and call her only as needed.I was given a direct number to her nurse, which is useful.

August 30, 2014

Dr. Amy Powell was excellent in every category. I will definitely return.

August 28, 2014

Dr. Amy Powell is one of the most competent, friendly, interested, and kind health professionals at the U.

August 25, 2014

Dr. Powell (as well as the female fellow - I forget her name) provided timely and excellent care. I will also comment that the x-ray tech was professional, courtesy and efficient as well (even though I could sense she was very busy).

August 25, 2014

I liked Dr. Powell very much. But I spent more time with her resident than I did with her. Both the resident and Dr. P seemed kind and compassionate. Treatment seemed disjointed, long period of waiting. Not clear about what the next step would be, partly related to waiting for test results.

August 22, 2014

Dr. Powell is very personable, kind, caring and skilled. I would recommend her to anyone, including family.

August 20, 2014

Provider did only a superficial evaluation, seemed not to really listen to my symptoms, and gave me a stock diagnosis which turned out to be wrong. My physical therapist listened to my symptoms and immediately identified the problem which was verified with diagrams and further examination. I would not go back to this orthopedic doctor again. The only thing she did right was write a prescription so I could go to my physical therapist.

August 19, 2014

Dr. Powell and Dr. Cushman were both excellent.

August 18, 2014

always super helpful, taking lots of time to answer questions

August 17, 2014

This has been a very positive experience

August 10, 2014

Loved Dr. Powell and her assistant. Overall, were very happy with visit. Only issue was long wait time in-between initial check-in and doctor. Understood why there was a delay. Dr. Powell was very apologetic. It would have been helpful if an assistant could have let us know what was going on. Again, overall, very pleased.

August 09, 2014

Of course, it was Dr. Powell and a resident who checked on me the other day.

August 08, 2014

Very competent and caring.

August 05, 2014

In addition to the structural issues, my skin actually split from being so tight due to swelling. it had become infected. I was prescribed an extremely high dose of Bactrim. I consequently developed a potentially life threatening reaction to it and was told to stop it by another doc. I assumed this would be addressed as well as the structural problem - nope. the infection is now worse and I need to go to yet another doctor. I was asked what I used for pain, but wasn't asked if it was sufficient. I don't think dr should push pills, but I do think pain should be addressed.I was given a splint to wear. I wasn't given instruction on how to take it off and on - would be beneficial for anyone, but I'm blind and it is rather important for me.

August 03, 2014

Amy is terrific.

July 29, 2014

At first a 4th year medical student came to examine me and she asked all the questions about my knees and the reason of my visit. Now there was a long waiting time. Then Dr. Powell and this student came with her. Dr. Powell asked me the history of my knee problems and examined my knees with ice cold hands. She apologized for her cold hands. She said the knees look fine. During all this, I asked Dr. Powell two times if my knee pain could be due to a hip problem. She completely ignored my concern. I also asked if this could be due to a foot problem, again she completely ignored my concern. I told her that I can bend my knees much better now then from the past, but there is a problem when I get up from a chair and my legs do not straighten up for about 30 seconds or more. I also told her that my knee hurts when I go down the stairs. I also told her that the back of my thigh and calf muscles ache, she did not listen to me at all. Seems like she only had the knee on her mind and she examined both knees and was done. After examining the knees she told me to call her again if my knees get worse. I really feel that if one goes to a specialist, the specialist can at least explain why the hip or the foot is not causing the knees to be painful. A few years ago my PT suggested that this knee pain could be a hip problem. I asked to see my X ray and Dr. Powell showed me my X ray very happily and explained what is wrong with my left knee.

July 28, 2014

I felt completely comfortable with my Doctor.

July 25, 2014

Dr. Powell is always very helpful; gives many options; uses common sense and is right on target for what is going on with me.

July 24, 2014

Dr Powell is the best. always gives her opinion and let's me give me the decision.

July 21, 2014

I have already recommended Dr. Powell to my sister, and my sister has been in to see her for some foot issues as well.

July 20, 2014

excited to be treated by her in the future (:

July 17, 2014

Amy was great-I felt listened to, she was invested in my running and understanding my desire to keep running.

July 17, 2014

Dr. Powell is professional and courteous; yet, she is always friendly and kind. She takes time to explain all treatment options and ensures that we are comfortable with our decision. She consistently includes my daughter (the patient) in all discussions and directs comments and questions to her. We have seen Dr. Powell numerous times and trust her judgment and care. She is extremely compassionate and is a fantastic physician. We have recommended Dr. Powell to many people and will happily continue to do so.

July 15, 2014

Dr. Powell was very nice, she showed concern for my problem and really wanted to help me. I would continue going to her for medical help.

July 14, 2014

My dad saw Amy before he had his Left TKA to manage pain with injections. His right knee is bad and should be replaced, but he will most likely see Amy before proceding that route - she's great.

July 12, 2014

I had seen Dr. Powell 6 years ago for a problem with my right knee. She had addressed that problem well, so I felt very confident in returning to her care for the problem with my left knee. She was able to recall previous visit with clear details.

July 02, 2014

Amy Powell is an excellent physician. Very knowledgeable, diagnosed my foot problem quickly. Now I know what I am dealing with and what I can do to help my foot heal.

June 30, 2014

Dr. Powell was very professional, cordial, and efficient. I couldn't have been more pleased.

June 30, 2014

This appointment was for a bone density test. I did not see the a provider. The Radiology Tech was very professional and friendly.

June 27, 2014

I was with the tech the whole time, so it was a little different experience-she was very nice and offered good care, but she entered my weight inaccurately which i didn't realize until i left, so I didn't know if the test results were accurate. my PCP contacted the radiologist to clarify if the error effected it.

June 26, 2014

Dr. Powell was excellent, she explained my condition in detail. She then explained my options for remitting my pain.

June 19, 2014

Dr. Powell is so warm and knowledgeable! She makes sure you understand and spends the time necessary with you to make sure you understand all options.

June 16, 2014

She didn't seem to listen very well. Seemed to have already made a decision about my care prior to entering the room

June 10, 2014

I liked the fact that this appointment was just the physician. I don't mind having a resident see me but fell like it is double duty when you see the resident and the physician separately. If they did the assessment together I feel it would be a better use of the patients visit.

June 09, 2014

Dr. Powell is the best. She explains everything before and during the procedure, so there are no surprises. A person can tolerate discomfort a lot better if they know how long it will last and what it will likely feel like. Dr. Powell is gentle and doesn't waste time. Dr. Powell removed the fear associated with the procedure.

June 07, 2014

I have seen Dr. Amy Powell before. She is thorough, efficient and knowledgeable. I feel that she treats me exactly as I want to be treated by a medical professional.

June 05, 2014

Dr. POWELL is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. And at my age and health I have had I have seen many .

June 05, 2014

Dr. Powell was great. She took the time to answer all of my questions. She also showed genuine concern and was very knowledgeable.

June 05, 2014

A terrific blend of professional, caring and very knowledgable!

May 28, 2014

I liked the fact that the resident saw me before the doctor and felt my discussion was great and plan for treatment had been worked out well. The doctor came about 10 minutes after the resident and asked me to do the same movements again which was counter productive because I was already in paid and aggravated the area again. I appreciate the resident working through the exam and felt he had done what needed to be done so doing it again was a bit painful.

May 23, 2014

I felt that Dr. Powell was genuinely concerned for me and the problem of my knee...

May 22, 2014

full confidence in Dr Powell and her ability and approach to my arthritis

May 16, 2014

Dr. Powell is one of the best doctors I have seen! She is friendly, courteous, caring, concerned, knowledgeable, nice....I would highly recommend her.

May 13, 2014

I feel that it would have been helpful if the physician gave me written instructions/patient education materials on what can/cannot be done based on my injury. I received more thorough information online from Mass General Orthopaedics, following my appointment.

May 08, 2014

Dr. Powell willingly spent the time needed to assure my concerns and issues were addressed, while examining me and explaining everything in layman's terms, and making certain I was involved in decision-making, plus that we agreed to a plan for future action to improve my recovery.

May 08, 2014

We would have liked a description of the treatment and it's information like on paper or pamphlet

May 07, 2014

Pretty darn good

May 06, 2014

I went to Dr. Powell after having great recommendations. Neither her or her resident knew what was wrong with me so they immediately voted for carpal tunnel syndrome. When that was discarded after I explained I had done tests for that which were negative, after doing different assessments of my back and upper extremities, they went to fibromyalgia. The answer for anything any doctor does not know the answer for. I am extremely disappointed. No x-rays, no cat scan, nothing. I won't be recommending the UUOC or Dr Powell to anyone. The physical therapy is great and my physical therapist, Tim Higgins, did an actual better and more extensive assessment than Dr. Powell and her resident. Having me lay down and not having me do so many painful stretches or movements that just aggravated all my back. I am so sad to have gone there expecting some solution to the problem I have had for the last 4 years and I am so sad that I actually work for the UOC and I am disappointed. I trust the physical therapy team will help me and hope I can find some relieve.

May 05, 2014

If I could give higher than a 5 rating, I would. I had an extremely positive and reassuring experience.

May 02, 2014

Right knee still hurts!

April 30, 2014

Provider was friendly and I like her. After she and Erin, the resident, reviewed x-rays of my hip, they came into the exam room and Amy made a comment about the condition of my spine. I am well aware of the deterioration I have and, although I appreciated and enjoyed Amy's use of humor during my appointment, it was a little painful to be reminded in that way about my back within the context of an evaluation of my hip deterioration. No big deal - it's hell getting old! Overall, I am pleased with the care I received.

April 29, 2014

Dr. Powell is terrific.

April 25, 2014

Always very impressed with Dr. Powell.

April 18, 2014

Amy Powell was extremely courteous. I couldn't ask for better. I did feel like time was a big factor and so that was a driving force in our visit. But she did explain everything and did a great job.

April 10, 2014

couldnt have had a better consideration in all aspects of visit.

April 05, 2014

Dr. Powell is at the top of the list of physicians that have provided care over the years. There are VERY FEW doctors that I would ever return to their care. But........she has always treated me with respect and concern and I can say quite honestly she is one of the best physicians I have ever had the privilege of meeting. I feel that she always is concerned with what is best for me. I only wish that more physicians would understand patient care as she obviously does.

March 28, 2014

We have been SO impressed with Dr. Amy Powell. She explains everything in great detail, asks questions, and discusses different options, etc. with the patient and the parent. We also felt she was very thorough with the examination; more so than other physicians we have seen, and truly cares about the outcome for the patient. We have never felt rushed during an appt., and her flexible hours have been very helpful with our busy schedule. We simply cannot say enough good things about Dr. Powell and the service she has provided for us!!

March 21, 2014

all was good

March 21, 2014

she outlined my options from cortisone shot to physical therepy and let me choose which I felt like I wanted to do.

March 13, 2014

Love Dr. Powell

March 07, 2014

Dr. Powell is terrific, caring and informative.

March 03, 2014

Explained the problem in detail which was very helpful and gave me different treatment options

February 28, 2014


February 17, 2014

Dr. Powell is open to questions, empathetic and very skilled. She is an exceptional physician.

February 10, 2014

Just a great place to get the care ones needed!

February 08, 2014

I think Dr Powel is great. She has gread bedside manner.

February 03, 2014

Instructions for care are sometimes difficult to remember. If there was a way to note these and give a copy to paitient, it would help.

January 31, 2014

It is not that the provider was not nice, it was that I felt she did not take the time to listen to me. I have gone to this clinic twice and both time the are rust to send me to the physical therapy. Everything with them is physical therapy.

January 25, 2014

dr Powell even brought in a specialist with her, who added greatly to the success of the treatment

January 24, 2014

I was very impressed with Dr. Powell. I found her to be interested, concerned, knowledgeable, personable, responsive.

January 22, 2014

the best in town

January 19, 2014

Very detailed questions about my history and personal condition and findings.

January 17, 2014

The procedure went well with no pain. Afterwards the pain was next to nothing and one week later I'm walking with no pain. Great job. Thanks for all you did.

January 17, 2014

Dr. Powell has always been very well prepared and has answered every question thoroughly. Very personable MD.

January 12, 2014

Dr. Powell is exceptional. She is very thorough and aims to get to the root of the problem.

January 08, 2014

Dr. Amy Powell is terrific! Friendly, very competent and knowledgeable, and explains things thoroughly.

January 07, 2014

Dr. Powell is clear, concise, listens well.

January 06, 2014

Have recommended Dr. Powell often.

December 19, 2013

Although I was disappointed that there was no immediate treatment recommended, such as surgery to fix my muscle tear, I appreciated the honesty and caution about the outcome of using other treatments. The doctor spent a considerable amount of time reviewing each treatment and the risks involved. It was refreshing to talk to a doctor who doesn't rush into surgery or other treatments just to provide an instant fix for the patient, but rather is more concerned about long term effects.

December 09, 2013

I really appreciate Dr Powell.

December 06, 2013

Love Amy!

November 22, 2013

Very pleasant doctor, informative and helpful.

November 18, 2013

Complete confidence in this doctor

November 11, 2013

Dr. Powell was very helpful, I had no need that was not met.

November 04, 2013

Thank You for all your kindness !!!!!!!!!!!

October 21, 2013

I have seen Dr. Powell for other issues before and always come back to her because of how friendly and approachable she is. And she definitely knows her stuff! I have and will recommend her to people I know

October 14, 2013

Genuine concern for my problem and trying to diagnose and always gives treatment options with an evaluation of each one. Fantastic physician.

October 11, 2013

Wouldn't take past history into consideration and ignored my thoughts and feelings.

October 08, 2013

Dr. Powell was excellent.

October 07, 2013

Haven't had the procedure yet, scheduled for this week.

October 03, 2013

Dr. Powell spent plenty of time with discussing my injury and the concerns that come with it. she discussed options making sure I agreed with the assessment and direction of future care. Dr. Powell had concern over secondary a secondary injury that she made sure I was able to see another specialist, Dr. Hansen, in the same office during the same visit. This save another trip and time. Dr. Hansen was just as professional as Dr. Powell and has the same degree of confidence.

October 01, 2013

Dr. Powell is the best doctor we have ever seen. I love her. We left there with an amaxing feeling that we were actuall taken care of. She is so smart and kind. She figured out what was wrong with my boys. She talked to my boys like they are real people with real problems. I am so greatful to her.

October 01, 2013

Dr. Powell was excellent and I enjoyed the lengthy discussion she was willing to have regarding my issue.

September 27, 2013

The resident and Dr. Powell both showed a lot of concern for my problem, which I appreciated enormously.

September 24, 2013

I was impressed by Dr. Powell's knowledge of my condition and how we, together talked about treatment. I felt very good about her suggestions and how she included me with the decisions made about my condition.

September 23, 2013

I would like an email address for Dr. Powell to ask her a question I thought of after leaving.

September 20, 2013

very pleased

September 20, 2013

Dr Powell is wonderful.

September 11, 2013

Dr. Powell ordered appropriate tests and was very professional in her assessment of my osteoporosis

September 10, 2013

Dr Powell is consistently concerned about my situation, makes great suggestions for improvement and summarizes plan we are working on.

September 09, 2013

I was very impressed with the doctors, but I asked about my ankle and she said it looked fine, but there was no x-ray taken of it. Only my foot was x-ray.

August 30, 2013

Dr. Powel came highly recommended and I was not disappointed! I'll see no one else after experiencing her friendliness, concern, professionalism, expertise and knowledgel full explanations, attention to me, on and on!!

August 21, 2013

I wish that she had spent more time describing next steps if my foot does not heal as planned b/c it is still hurting, but I don't know what to watch for or what the next steps would be.

August 19, 2013

Do everything you can to keep Dr. Any Powell. She is the greatest!!!

August 06, 2013

Dr. Powell is terrific, she understands the active, athletic personality and wants to get us back out and moving around.

August 05, 2013

I though Dr. Powell was great. She didn't minimize my concerns. Even though it was hard to explain my problem, she didn't make me feel like it was all in my head or that there was nothing going on. Additionally, she didn't make me feel like it was just a weight-related problem. I really appreciated that.

August 05, 2013

It was a great experience and I am looking forward to a quick recovery.

August 05, 2013

Amy is very professional and competent-my husband and I both see her

August 02, 2013

An overall fantastic experience (considering the appointment was for broken bones).

July 29, 2013


July 29, 2013

I didn't get enough medical care from this provider

July 22, 2013

Dr. Powell carefully explained the results of the dexascan - and compared it to my 2 earlier scans at another location years ago (and explained that using a different machine makes it somewhat difficult to compare. However, allowing for some variance, my bone density has not changed dramatically in the last 9 years--first good news I have had in some time!

July 20, 2013

Dr. Powell and her intern worked very well together and took excellent care of me. They both did a thorough examination and were very sensitive to the pain it caused but also the necessity of it as a diagnostic tool. Dr Powell was quick to provide information about her thoughts on my injury but was also honest about things she wasn't sure about and ordered further testing done.

July 20, 2013

Dr Powell was very sensitive to my injury and its impact on my daily life/career. In addition to that sensitivity, she showed great awareness to the potential financial difficulty my treatment could pose. I felt very well cared for and understand my injury and the role of my treatment plan VERY well after speaking with me. She walked me through my MRI results and even drew diagrams to allow me to visualize exactly what was going on. I highly recommend her and have been singing her praises to all my friends and family.

June 25, 2013

Dr Powell addressed my anxiety and concerns regarding my treatment in a professional, kind and caring way. I felt much better after talking with her.

June 23, 2013

Dr. Powell and Dr. English were both very friendly and very efficient. I didn't feel that they were rushing to get on to the next patient. Dr. Powell made me feel good that I was not wasting anyone's time or resources when she recommended doing an MRI. She was very patient and kind in listening and explaining next steps in order to address my injury.

June 19, 2013

Dr. Powell seems to be very concerned about my orthopedic care and wants to make sure we are making the right decision with my care. Giving several options for my care is great to have and to give me time to think about options and return a call with decision.

June 18, 2013

Dr. Powell is GREAT to work with !!!!!!!!!!!! She really cares about me !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

June 17, 2013

Dr. Powell is amazing. Such a kind and caring doctor!

June 17, 2013

I was informed they were running behind. I had several concerns that needed to be addressed. I felt they were trying to "catch up" so they didn't address all of my concerns. Now I'll have to make another appointment to have the additional concerns addressed.

June 17, 2013

Conversation was clear and concise, Dr. Powell very personable and caring.

June 17, 2013

It's refreshing to see a provider who includes the patient in decisions on treatment options and who listens to the patient before making decisions (as opposed to coming in to the room with an opinion already formed so there is no reason to actually listen to the patient at all).

June 10, 2013

I appreciate the U of U medical staff, because, while they don't talk down to the patient, they are understanding, patient, and take time to explain clearly.

June 10, 2013

I have sent an email to Dr. Powell that has not been returned. I have found that this is a problem with the Ortho doctors

June 10, 2013

I have recommended Dr. Powell to several people !

June 07, 2013

Excellent doctor and intern. I would recommend this doctor readily.

June 07, 2013

I was seen by two people. They were both professional and helpful.

June 03, 2013

Great doctor. Complete confidence in her. Good rapport. Good listener.

May 28, 2013

Dr. Powell is outstanding in explaining her findings, offering suggestions for care, and listening to my concerns. I trust her implicitly.

May 20, 2013

Dr. Powell is wonderful.

May 16, 2013

Dr. Powell is friendly and professional and has a sincere interest in helping with my medical problems. She explains everything clearly and offers good advice and suggestions. Mainly, I have confidence in what she advises me to do.

May 13, 2013

Dr. Powell seemed a bit rushed, even though I was one of her first a.m. appointments.

May 07, 2013

Dr. Powell is a great doctor. She is authentic. I have never felt rushed when seeing her.

May 04, 2013

Thank You Dr. Amy Powell for all the kindness you gave me !!!!!!

May 03, 2013

Dr. Powell is impressive. I had seen her over a year before this appointment and she remember the specifics of my previous appts and details about me that I believe may not have been part of the medical record. I appreciated her concern for me.

April 30, 2013

Amy was very helpful she listened to my questions and concerns and when I told her about my extremely upsetting experience with Shauna when I called trying to figure out where I needed to call to get help with my leg pain. Amy referred me to Dr. Cuniffe and got an appointment right away.

April 29, 2013

I would not recommend or visit this doctor again. She did not address my issue of pain and seemed rushed to get me out quickly.

April 12, 2013

Dr. Powell is a very kind and caring person. We discussed my history & prior treatments and she listened intently and asked questions, and then we made a decision about my treatment. She is fantastic and I recommend her highly.

March 25, 2013

I appreciate the variety of options presented to me, especially non-operative.

March 12, 2013

Dr. Powell was very concerned/interested in my dilemma. She listened, read the reports, took a couple of xrays to assure herself that the situation was as described and advised me how to proceed.

March 04, 2013

I like Dr. Powell very much. I have already referred her to many other people.

February 25, 2013

Excellent Dr. will come back as needed

February 18, 2013

totally impressive experience

February 18, 2013

Thank you for being such a good listener and taking time to review my records, perform an exam, and then communicate the next steps.

February 11, 2013

Dr Powell has very good bedside manner- very gracious and warm

February 11, 2013

Dr. Powell is not the only MD I have seen at this clinic. She is the only one I choose to see me. I will wait to get an appointment with her as she takes the time to ensure I am comfortable and my shots are as pain free as possible. Powell obviously cares about me as a patient.

January 28, 2013

Dr Powell explained everything beforehand and communicated with me every step of the way, what was being done, why and what could be expected, pain, pressure, etc.

January 28, 2013

Dr. Powell is fantastic. She is always very compassionate and understanding, and tries to get athletes back into action as soon as possible.

January 21, 2013

Dr. Powell and Dr. Goodman were awesome

January 21, 2013

Dr. Powell is fantastic, personable and profession.

January 14, 2013

Dr. Powell is very attentive and gave me a great sense that the appropriate diagnosis was made and what the appropriate treatment options were.

January 08, 2013

Dr. Powell gives such complete information, and always asks if I have any more questions.

January 07, 2013

I appreciate the discussion about my situation, and the fact that I was allowed to forward my opinion as a patient.

January 04, 2013

Was easy. Felt well taken care of.

December 19, 2012

Thank You for your kindness & care !!!

December 17, 2012

I came back to see Dr. Powell because of the care I received several years ago. I have had ongoing issues for 25 years, and Dr. Powell seems to really want to figure out and get to the bottom of the problem. I have every confidence in Dr. Powell.

December 10, 2012

Dr. Amy Powell was awesome with me in explanning my condition and gave me a good solution.

December 04, 2012

I liked Dr. Powell immensely.

December 04, 2012

No medications prescribed.

December 03, 2012

I feel most fortunate to be in the care of my physician in this Clinic.

December 03, 2012

Dr. Powell is excellent and I fully trust her.

December 03, 2012

Exceptional as always

November 26, 2012

It is daughter also understands my hip-pain situation better and has confidence in the diagnosis and treatment. Thank you for including her.

November 11, 2012

I would send my Mother to Dr. Powell.

November 07, 2012

outstanding, inclusive and easy going

November 07, 2012

The best! Had my ortho and friends do R shoulder and L hip, but this l shoulder is the best relief I've ever had. Makes me wish I could ask to do have the R one redone by Krim's group

November 05, 2012

Very good experience, even though I had a feeling that they were very busy and I should make my feelings and physical problems short and to the point. Which is not a problem with me. It may be for others

October 29, 2012

Because I am of an age where "falling apart" seems to be creeping in, I have already referred a friend to Dr. Powell for hip issues. I am confident if Dr. Powell believes a different care provider would better address this friend's problem, she would refer her to an excellent physician, not just "the next in line" which can sometimes be the case.

October 16, 2012


October 15, 2012

I would recommend this orthopedic center to others.

October 08, 2012

My only hesitation to recommend this care provider is wait time.

October 08, 2012

Dr. Powell was very informative about my options, and had the nurse take me right down to the therapy department to help me get an appointment. Dr. Powell seems so nice and genuinely cares about me.

October 02, 2012

Dr. Powell is a real gem.

September 28, 2012

Dr Powell had a VERY calming and reassuring manner that really was commendable

September 12, 2012

I would definately refer Dr Powell. I have come back to her several times. She seems genuine and caring.

September 04, 2012

She is excellent.

August 31, 2012

Dr. was friendly, helpful and efficient

August 27, 2012

good experiance not as good as the first one but efective

August 24, 2012

seems to be a climate of thinking people are drug seekers or going to be if given pain medication.

August 24, 2012

For orthopedic problems, we stay with Dr. Powell. She treats Tonia right.

August 23, 2012

Always a very nice and sharp physician. This visit - awkward and dissapointing for me. Physician in a bad mood? and 'short' with me for the first time.

August 21, 2012

Once again, an excellent experience. I can't imagine going anywhere else for my orthopedic needs.

August 20, 2012

This was Jacob's first visit with Dr. Powell. Now everyone in our family has utilized her expertise on at least one occasion. Obviously, we are pleased with our experience and have recommended her to several friends with sports type injuries or issues. She is consistently professional, pleasant, and takes the time to address the concern, review options and rationale, and includes us in the action plan. She mentors the exceptional patient experience. Though interns/residents participate in the visit, we feel confident she actively participates & directs the actino plan.

August 11, 2012

Dr. Amy Powell is FANTASTIC

August 07, 2012

Dr. Powell is fantastic, despite my negative experience with delays on this visit.

July 25, 2012

Fantastic. I could not have been taken care of better.

July 23, 2012

Dr. Powell was very professional and answered my questions completely. I would recommend her highly.

July 16, 2012

Good experience and I hope the course of action is appropriate to determine and cure the problem

July 16, 2012

Optimistic and focused on my problem

July 16, 2012

Very friendly and relates well with her patients. Spoke about my visit with my husband. Surprisingly she had treated him sometime in the past and also thought highly of her!

July 09, 2012

AMY and team are excellent!

July 06, 2012

See above

July 04, 2012

Dr Powell, her Physicians assistant, I forgot her name, and Monica, her medical assistant were all excellent.

July 03, 2012

This was a very positive experience.

July 02, 2012

Dr. Powell is one of the best doctors I have ever visited. She has very good listening skills and most importantly takes time to review records from other doctors and PT visits. I could not ask for a better doctor. I really appeciate her care!

June 29, 2012

Wonderful doctor.

June 26, 2012

Dr. Powell and her staff were all great. I would tell others how well I was treated under her care.

June 20, 2012

I love Dr Powell so much that I have recomended her to family and friends.

June 18, 2012

I have, and continue to refer friends and family to Dr. Powell, the most recent was my father.

June 14, 2012

Dr. Powell is very kind and compassionate. She answered my questions and asked "do you have any other questions?" at the end of the visit. She involved me in the decision about the next step in my care after presenting options.

June 13, 2012

Dr. Powell is very kind and explained everything to me.

June 10, 2012

Dr. Amy Powell is great, she is caring and understanding. A great asset to the University staff.

June 08, 2012

I look forward to working with Dr. Powell to detect the root cause of my problem. I appreciate her thoroughness and even sharing with me some of her thought processes (and informing me that she was thinking aloud). She communicated brilliantly, really seemed interested, concerned, and professional. Thank you.

June 06, 2012

Dr. Powell was incredible. I will definitely recommend her. I don't think I can say the same thing for the resident who provided care.

June 04, 2012

Dr. Powell was superb. I would highly recommend her to others.

May 09, 2012

I really appreciated Dr. Powell, and thought she gave me good advice and comments.

May 04, 2012

Dr. Amy Powell and everyone at the U are very nice and they make you feel very comfortable.

May 03, 2012

Amy Powell provides the type of care and concern that is welcome and appropriate.

April 04, 2012

very compitant health care providers all questions were answered

April 01, 2012

Didn't find out till after the care provider left the office that I was to have not only an MRI, but an MRI with contrast. Any time something is going to be put into my body, I feel there must be a discussion of why this is necessary, what the advantages and risks are, what extra information will be gained, as well as an opportunity to decline.

March 13, 2012

Dr Amy Powells bedside manner was excellent She was very respectful

March 01, 2012

Dr. Powell was great. She was very friendly and attentive.

February 25, 2012

Very impressed with the physician. Should concern and was treated with very good care

February 25, 2012

Amy Powell was the doctor.

February 22, 2012

She provided excellent care and the braces that she suggested I use help me so much to relive the pain of walking up and down stairs.

February 22, 2012

i like the group discussions of all the care provders. they discuss and come to a meeting of the minds as to what would be best for me.

February 18, 2012

I know the center is a teaching school, but I wish for the olden days when I saw only the real doctor. This is not just your office but now it's all medical offices.

February 16, 2012

I am trying once again to find solutions to a long-term chronic problem. I've given up on the medical community repeatedly. I asked the Dr. if she would commit to solving the problem. She was non-committal and even said that the tests she proposed were the 'end of the road' concerning this problem. That was NOT what I wanted to hear.

February 08, 2012

a wonderful experience - will recommend her to all my friends-- Extremely well educated and informed

February 04, 2012

Explained everyting very well and quickley. Asked for any questions and all questions were answered to my satisifaction.

February 04, 2012

They were very helpful and very informative.

February 04, 2012

Dr. Powell is great, but because of fellows and residents she only spent about 3 to 5 minutes with me and I was not able to ask all my questions. I also have to make another appointment to see her about another matter that needs to be addressed. MD should be able to address more than one issue at a time and you shouldn't have to make separate appointments for each issue.

February 01, 2012

Dr. Powell always is working to find the best care regimens.

January 28, 2012


January 25, 2012

If my shoulder mostly or completey recovers, then the last two questions will increase to very good.

January 25, 2012

I have confidence in this physician and her staff...

January 19, 2012

Amy Powell is a gem. I've never had someone explain something so well. The entire visit was a sheer pleasure.

January 14, 2012

Overall exam was great. The follow up instructions were a bit cloudy. I expressed my concern that i did not understand what i could / could not do but I don't feel i received a satisfactory answer. I did appreciate that she did allow me to call her directly to clarify.

January 14, 2012

Dr Powell was very helpful and informative about concussion care and made us understand what needed to be done for recovery.

January 12, 2012

She is always clear and listens well!

January 11, 2012

This visit was very much improved. I have felt very disappointed on prior visits that much questions were not answered well and not much concern was given. This visit answered all my questions and I feel much better about returning in the future.

January 07, 2012

I have already referred multiple people to Dr. Powell

January 07, 2012

Amy was very good at making me feel comfortable and explaining what was going on. I appreciated her time in the office with me, because I've had doctors in the past spend less time with me and it was discouraging. She did a great job.

January 07, 2012

Dr. Powell provided what I can honestly say was the best experience I have had with a doctor's visit. She was very personable, nice, professional, and best of all seemed honestly interested in my specific problem and was willing to take the time to make sure I had all of my questions answered. I never got the feeling she was trying to rush me out to get to the next patient even though she knew I was only there to get a second opinion on my shoulder. It was great.

January 05, 2012

I have already referred someone to Doctor Powell.

January 05, 2012

Dr Amy Powell is an excellent doctor- very informative, very competent with wide range of help in all areas. Also, the REHAB center is very good and has a very good staff to help with exercises for your particular problem - have used the water therapy program as well as back and limb strength after operations or accidents. I have always had good help from that center.

January 05, 2012

I left the appointment without an understanding of what was wrong with me but a treatment plan of getting an injection in my hip. I didn't realize it while i was talking to the doctor but afterward I was really unsure about whether I wanted to do the treatment. I didn't feel like I knew enough about it, what it was meant to do, if there were any side effects, or whether it would be the best thing for me in the circumstances I was in. I realize some of this was my failure to ask questions. Maybe there could be a resource or written material that patients could refer to later.
