Dr. Powers called me on my cell phone regarding a test he had ordered. He called once to be sure a date had been set for the test, and once to explain what the test meant for my future health. Those calls certainly caused me to feel that Dr.Powers had my best interest in his heart, and that I was receiving care as good as i cpuld get any where.
