Dr. Powers is a highly experienced, caring professional with a gentle touch and reassuring manner. He was very familiar with my history before we met, and took the time to fully answer my questions. I went in anxious about the appointment, and left feeling quite cared for. Excellent doctor!

I love Dr. Powers! He’s the kindest man. He’s incredibly smart and an all around terrific doctor. I can’t imagine going to any other OBGYN after him. His bedside manner is top notch and he makes your annual visit as quick and painless as humanly possible. Highly recommend him.

I've bee a patient of Dr. Powers for over 10 years and has had nothing but positive visits with him. He really gets to know you and provides sound advice. I still have great visits with Dr. Powers but have beenless happy with the front desk since he moved to the GW Medical Facility Ass. I don't care for the electronic check process and it doesn't make it clear if you need to check in with the desk staff as well. The staff is also very rude and dismissive about confusion. Check out is also confusing and not pleasant as well. I'm all for digital records and using tech when it makes sense but I'm not sure why they are using this system when every other medical offices using a simple sign in sheet with better front desk staffing.

Dr. Powers is a great Ob/Gyn - kind, gentle, and open minded. He is the first and only male OB that I have ever been to, and I have no issues with it - he is incredibly knowledgeable and doesn't pitchunnecessary things. He is great and I would recommend him to everyone - esp. if you are hesitant about having a male dr. he is great!!

Dr. Powers is great... I've been going to him for years and would recommend him highly. The problem is the front office system... Apparently somehow they failed to register that I had arrived, even though I checked in and provided myinsurance card. After half an hour of waiting for my morning appointment I decided to check what was going on since I didn't think Dr. Powers could be so backed up with appointments so early in the day. Turns out he didn't know I was out there waiting. We were both pretty annoyed with the front desk, but I guess these things happen some time. I preferred when he had his own private practice but I guess those days are pretty much gone in health care these days...

Dr. Powers is amicable and professional. He takes the time to get to know his patients and his appointments are never rushed. I trust him completely and would recommend him to any one in the DC area! His staff is alsofriendly, all check in is automatic through the computer system and wait time is never more than 10-15 minutes.

Dr. Powers is wonderful. The practice however isn't run very well. I had a 10:15 appointment and was in the waiting room for the first 30 mins. I then waited another 10 mins in the doctor's room. I then saw Dr.Powers for less than 10 mins. A 40 min wait for a 10 min appointment is a bit excessive. Despite all this, I highly recommend Dr. Powers because he is an excellent physician.

This was my first visit to Dr. Powers in this office environment. I was a bit skeptical when I walked into the Suite because it was so different than his previous office. It seemed bigger and more impersonal. However, this didnot affect my visit with him in the least. He was the same doctor I remembered and the lack of paper records and entering everything online seemed to streamline the process and visit. I was very pleased when I left because everything went smoothly and effortlessly on my part.

Dr. Powers is a caring, to-the-point doctor. I always feel respected, able to ask questions and like my time is also valuable. Appointments are usually quick and easy, and I love that he uses the MFA messaging system if I everneed him outside of an appointment. I have visited both his Bethesda and DC offices. I will say the Bethesda office is much friendlier, has the lab in-office, and has more of a "spa" feel. The DC office is also very clean and nice, but the staff are much less friendly.
