I am transgender. In East Texas, it's hard to find such an open and caring doctor to take care of me. She has been an all-star since day one. I can never thank you enough for always listening to me, and helping me. Dr. Powell not only hears what you say, but she takes your concerns seriously. Best doctor in ETX!

Dr. Powell has been my primary physician for several years now. I usually see her approximately every 6 months for followup on my various ailments. She listens and treats me as another intelligent adult. She is very willing to answer questions and decide with me on possible options for my care. She has no hesitancy in referring to a specialist if needed. I never have to wait very long, but know if I do, she will still spend an adequate amount of time with me.
I am so grateful for Dr. Powell and her staff. It is so nice to find a dr. That listens and finds answers.
