I feel very blessed to have Dr Janell Powell as my PCP!
August 06, 2021
He was new for me this year. I felt like he didn't really examine me. He was too inquisitive about things that were not health related. The nurse had to remind him that I had a questionable mark on my back that I had noted when she screened me. He provided me with the information I needed regarding prescription and my options.

July 09, 2021
I was given too much medicine from these doctors. I explained my issues, they threw medicine at it, didn't look for the root cause. They especially twice talked me in to a drug for insomnia, the 2nd appointment scoffed at the clear warnings about the problems with this drug. I took it, am now dealing with the drugs side effects. Also MAJOR confusion with the front desk and the back office, causing major confusion with my second appointment. I cancelled it, I will never go to that office again.I tried twice, two different medical people and neither helped.
