Verified Patient Reviews
I have met Dr. Powell before, although at another time not as his patient. I think it went well and I have answers to my questions and have a plan to follow.
Dr Powell was recommended to me by another healthcare professional. He seemed very knowledgeable and did a good job explaining what we needed to do to fully determine my issues and then gave some potential outcomes for me to be thinking about. Seemed to be knowledgeable about new treatment options and could explain them well. So far I am impressed.
What a horrific disappointment for a doc that had such a good rating. I was consulting this dr with a diagnosis of sleep apnea to see if there was anything physically causing the problem in my upper airway. I complained of a lot of congestion ever since my sleep study. I had no idea how the dr was going to check for obstruction. He looked in my nose and throat, proceeded to squirt something in my nose, said "let that work a while" and walked out of the room. I was so confused! A girl came in with a form for me to sign and I asked her what was happening, she said he was going to use a camera through my nose into my throat. I have terrible anxiety so promptly jumped up to take a xanax. The dr came back in as it was beginning to work (which tells you it was at least 20 minutes waiting). He "scoped me" and said I was all inflamed probably from allergies but there was nothing causing the apnea, so he was recommending an antihistamine and nasal spray. I complained, again, about the congestion, which I can "snuff" but it won't come out of my nose or down my throat and he got this "God complex" look on his face as he said "well there is nothing there". He was very short and it was obvious he had other patients to see and didn't want to exceed his 5 minutes with me. When I checked out the girl made a comment that he would not need to see me again and I asked how I was supposed to know if the meds had worked and she said I could make a followup if I wanted to but it was not required. It has been a week as of this writing and I still have the congestion. I can't honestly say that in 3 more weeks if I still have it that I want to return to him. He was in such a hurry, obviously didn't want to listen to anything I had to say, and I don't trust his diagnosis. Very disappointing. I will say that the front office staff was very pleasant. I don't know how much they charge the insurance, but there were so many people "assisting" him, from the girl that came in to take notes, to anothe girl that brought in the equipment, to another that brought in the form for me to sign, to another that gave me my checkout forms, it was like a revolving door!
I truly appreciate Dr. Scott and his staff for letting me get an emergency appointment.
Dr. Powell is extremely efficient and a real time manager. He prescribed "pantoprazole" for me. It would be nice if he could have prescribed a drug that does not cause deterioration of the bones and joints. Perhaps there is no other drug on the market to do this.
I came Dr. Powell for a second opinion after 2 months of no sinus relief. And I am so happy I did! I could not be happier with Dr. Powell and what he will do for me. Highly recommend!!
Very thorough and efficient. Easy to talk to. My wife and I have both had surgery with him and very positive experiences. Highly recommend.
Very knowledgeable and professional. Always takes time to explain what he's doing and to answer all my questions
Dr. Powell is a very good doctor .
Dr. Powell has a great personality. Knows what he doing. Very happy with him and his practice.
He was very professional and seems very knowledgable. He answered all my questions and seemed considerate of my time.
Very nice office, very welcoming staff, and Dr. Powell is GREAT!! He is very knowledgeable, very gracious and takes the time to explain and discuss options. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needed an ENT.
I felt the office staff were professional, however they could have notified everyone that the doctor was running an hour behind. I understand that things happen, he has surgeries and on calls. It could have been handled completely different. That being said He was great, I was in and out as soon as he arrived. I will use them again in the future.
I feel I'm going to get well am glad I insisted on a referral
Very professional and I felt very thorough.
I was very pleased
He figured out how to help me when others couldn't. I had a terrible cough for two and a half months and he fixed it.
Very professional and caring. He was thorough and made good recommendations on the issue . Understood the problem and provided remedies .
The office staff could be friendlier, welcoming, and could smile
Great experience for being scared to death of not knowing what was going to happen. Dr Powell was knowledgeable of my condition, explained everything to me I needed to know, prescribed a treatment plan and out the door I went. Loved it!
He is Awsome :) Fantastic Doctor
I am extremely happy with Dr. Powell and all of his staff.
I hope he can fix my dizziness. Find out in the next two weeks after more tests.
Dr. Powell is an amazing Doctor. He's very thorough and explains things in lament terms. He answers all questions and listens to our concerns. I would recommend his office anytime to anyone.
My visit with Dr. Powell was excellent. He's very personable and professional. He diagnosed my problem very quickly and made recommendations for treatment. I would highly recommend him.
I love the staff and Dr.!!!!They were professional and courteous.
Very disappointed with the appointment. Had to wait a long time to get in with an appointment. Then, the Dr. informed me there was no treatment for my ear problem and that I just had to live with it and maybe in time it will correct itself. Unsatisfactory.
Great doctor! Makes me feel comfortable in the most uncomfortable situations and always let's me know exactly what Is going on. Also very speedy and right to the point
I was very inpressed with all aspects of my visit. All was done in a highly professional manner with good explanations as it went along.
Very pleased with my visit! The office staff were nice, helpful and professional. Dr Powell really listened to me and explained everything very clearly. I will continue to see Dr Powell when needed!
Dr. Powell ensures/inspires confidence because he explains everything with the objective of getting you to understand, procedures, tests, treatments, etc. He uses the right amount of caution and praise to attain his objective which in the end results is better health for the patient. I consider myself lucky to have connected with him to be my doctor.
Happy that they are able to provide services inside the office (i.e. CT scan) and get instant results that are explained in detail. Staff quickly determined what i would need to pay/not pay and explained all services covered.
Dr. Scott Powell is an Awesome physician. He is an expert in his field and he truly cares about his patients.
It was excellent
Amazing experience as a New patient ,amazing Doctor and staff
Dr. Powell was very nice and thorough. He took the time to listen and answer my questions even though they were really busy.
My appointment went very well, Dr. Powell was very thorough & caring. He explained everything in plain simple terms & I am well satisfied with him & the entire office staff.
Pretty astonished at the level of non-empathy towards my case. Obviously a highly intelligent physician but no bedside manner at all. Not only seemed rushed but acted almost like it was an inconvenience for him to listen to and answer my questions. If you are looking for a caring physician who even remotely acts as though he cares this is not the doctor for you. On the other hand if bedside manner isn't a priority for you as I previously stated he is very intelligent and might serve your needs for an ENT. Audiologist on the other hand was exceptional!
I have been dealing with a cough and thirst issue for about a year. Thanks to Dr. Powell, he did a scope, found out the problem and called in a prescription. I was so relieved that it was nothing more serious and treatable. My daughter recommended Dr. Powell to me and I would most definitely recommend him to my friends! Thanks to everyone in the office - most courteous and professional!
He was very friendly and took the time to explain everything. My toddler actually enjoyed the hearing tests and check up!
He was thorough, knowledgeable, professional & gentle. Need more doctors like him.
Very excellent ENT Doctor will recommend to friends and family member.
Dr. Powell explained everything to me simply so I could understand the up coming surgery without making me feel confused or uneasy. He spent as much time with me as I needed without making me feel like he was in a hurry to see his next patient. The only reason there was a 30 minute wait was he was coming from the hospital. His office staff kept us informed which was awesome.
I was seen promptly, it was a good visit.
He is always personable and interested, kind and explains clearly his observations. Definitely one of a kind!
Very professional, listened to my concerns.
Dr. Powell and the staff are all I could have hoped for at the Ear, Nose, Throat and Allergy Facility in Brandon Florida. He has been my ENT care physician for several years now and has always provided the absolute best care, and I believe, best advice and treatment during every visit and for every issue. I would recommend the facility to friends and family.
was my first appointment and I had no records, or test results, so I think Dr. Powell did everything he could to figure out the problem and get things started to further analyze my issue. He was nice and left me plenty of time to ask questions, which I won't have until we see results of tests. I felt he was a little rushed, but all doctors seem rushed these days. I liked that he was straight forward and seemed very knowledgeable. I also liked that he had several potential options in mind. overall I think it was a worthwhile visit and look forward to going back again to further explore my medical issue.
His music in the background (jack johnson) off of his phone was great. It did its best to relax me since i was nervous and going to have nose surgery
Very personable and took time to listen to me without rushing. He seems like he really cares about his patients. I have already recommended him to someone.
He is very nice, and answers all your questions and concerns. Also if you forget to ask something or when you get home and don't understand anything if you call the office everyone is so nice and a nurse will get back with you and explain everything. Well run office, staff and doctor is great.
Dr. Powell had a very professional and friendly and empathetic approach to what must be such a common issue with post Iraq/Afghanistan veterans with young age and hearing loss. The stigmatism of losing your hearing is devastating, but he provided realistic approaches to what can be sustained and prevent any further damage. I was very impressed and look forward to my follow up exam to the issue we discussed. Very Respectfully, SDC
Dr. Powell is always very prompt. He has a wonderful bedside manner. He spoke to my father and I in terms we could understand......not the normal doctor "lingo". He treats my father like family.
The office personnel were friendly, courteous and professional. Dr. Powell was thorough and explained everything regarding my condition in detail. I felt very comfortable.
Professional, punctual, nice staff. Will return for follow ups.
He was very professional and personal. He explained the surgery to my daughter so she would understand.
Staff and Doc are friendly. Explain everything that is going on. Takes time to listen. Also, if you call the assistant, they've called back the same day. Other doctors call in a day or two. Wait time isn't long, I think once i waited 20 minutes from when I came in, other times its usually 5 minutes or so. I'd recommend.
He saved my life by removing a horribly large thyroid. Then removed another growth in my throat causing me to be unable to speak. He's great.
Pleasant as could be and very informative. Excellent job at trying to make my process as painless as possible.
Dr. Powell is always professional. Would recommend him to all.
Not really sure what to think yet. I am confused as to what he is going to do if anything. Have to go back in 6 weeks....
Everyone was friendly and very professional. Thank you for your great care.
He was very pleasant and very informative.
Awful doctor. Money hungry. Did not take the time to get to know me as a person. Awful beside manner. Quadruple books patients on the hour. Treated me like a chart number rather than a living breathing person. Ironic because this is an ENT practice. This is a big practice with profits at top of mind. Patient is the last thing on his mind. He seems stressed and treats you like cattle. Please stay away and keep your multiple copays and your time.
Excellent interaction with Dr Powell especially with his good advise.
He is very helpful and seems to care for the wellbeing of his patients.
Dr. Powell always acts professionally, but compassionately. He treats the whole patient, not just a throat or an ear.
Great bedside manner. He really made my 6 year feel comfortable and eased his anxiety.
It's my 2nd visit and my issues were well explained
I really love this doctor. He has been wonderful in treating my problems and I think he is very professional and kind.
Appreciated the no wait and efficiency of staff with process as a first time patient. I feel I established a good connection with him on my first visit and he was responsive to my needs and concerns. Very pleased.
He was very attentive to my concerns. Talked to my daughter in a way for her to understand. Great personality.
Dr. Powell is patient, kind and informative. I highly recommend him for anyone's pediatric ENT needs.
I would certainly recommend him, I received excellent care. He and his staff were professional and courteous before and after surgery.
The doctor was great and through. He put my mind at ease.
Dr. Powell is right to the point with a professional but casual bedside manner. He explains each step of a procedure and is very gentile in his treatment. He made me feel comfortable during a nasal procedure that, of course, went just as he said it would. His expertise in exceptional and his staff is educated and kind.
The staff is very polite. I never had to wait more than ten minutes. Very clean rooms! DR.Powell answered all questions and you feel very comfortable talking to him.
I respect him and having worked with physicians for two decades, I think he is one the very best
Dr. Powell is very professional,knowledgeable,and personable.I could not have asked for anything more.I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Scott Powell is an knowledgeable, caring and trusted professional. He takes his time to ensure you understand your health. He explains what he is doing before and while he is treatment you, that is hard to find in most doctor's offices. Highly recommend Dr. Powell!
I was referred to Dr. Powell by a pediatric ENT, because my daughter had "aged out" of his practice. Dr. Powell has a great bedside manner and quickly diagnosed my daughter's problem. He was logical, straight-forward and explained the path we needed to follow in order for her to heal appropriately. This appointment confirmed the positive reviews I have already heard from several of his patients that I know. My daughter and I are happy he figured out her "problem".....at least one of them!
I liked him.
Very personable and professional. He was very knowledgeable about my condition and quickly laid out a plan for how we treat it. Office staff was very efficient as well.
Very informative and listened to my concerns
Dr. Powell was very present and in formative. I am very pleased with him as a Doctor. I would recommend him to anyone.
Excellent visit. Dr Powell was very nice in explaining my situation on future allergy treatment.
Very informative. Listened to my concerns.
Very happy, he has managed to get my symptoms under control for the first time in years. My only concern is that if the appointments are running late, the office staff could let people know so they don't have to wait as long.
Dr. Powell is very professional. Answered all my questions. Never felt rushed. Before seeing him, I was seen by Dr. Barnes, the audiologist, for a hearing screening. I highly recommend both.
It was nice that the staff let me know that the Doctor was running late due to traffic problems between Brandon and Plant City. Most office staff would just let you set there without any explanation. Thanks for keeping be informed
Know's his stuff. Explains well. Sets follow up appointments.
Dr. Powell was very professional. He discussed treatments and options that are available for my condition.
He is a great doctor. Very informative. Great staff
Absolutely wonderful.. From front desk to audiologist.. To dr... To check out! I wish all my doctors were that professional and thorough!!
I carry a wonderful experience with Dr Scott Powell. I have been having sever sinus pain for past 3 years. After visiting him and undergoing Balloon Sinuplasty, my headache has subsided. I feel wonderful again. Thanks
He gave his suggestions on what may be going on with my son. He then started to make a plan of what we will do first and so on until we know what is wrong with my son. He augured me that we will get to the end of the issue together and that there is what makes him more than just a doctor. He's very polite and knowledgeable. He actually cares! After we got done speaking with him I can say I am at ease.
I am most pleased with Dr. Powell, it was an excellent visit.
First I am a clean freak. If I find any type of leftover remnants they used on a prior patient this would have been last last trip. I found the waiting room clean, hallways and the hold room where you wait for the doctor VERY clean. Plus I had a beautiful view of the lake through the window! The doctor was very pleasant, and clearly understood every word he spoke. Yes I was very pleased. If you find a doctors office unclean stay away! Before each patient is placed in a waiting room it should be clean without cross things laying on the floor and splattered substance which I found in a local Dermatologist.I will call him shorty and advise him why I will no longer be his patient.
He is a no fuss doctor and is very competent which is the important thing, but the waiting time is always long and his approach is rather distant despite dealing with a child.
Fast friendly and helpful. Dr Powell listens and talks to you like a person rather than just a patient. Excellent care.
I was very impressed with the entire staff. Dr Scott was very professional, but he talked to me as if I was his brother. He was direct and gave me very good and precise information about my issues at hand. He explained all of our options and what to expect next.
Outstanding, knowledgeable doctor...I highly recommend Dr. Powell.
Great DR. Also fixes my health issues
The doctor was good. He answer all my questions and concerns. But the wait was long. I arrived at 3:30pm and was out by 5:50pm.
He is a great Doctor, explains everything thoroughly. I love his kind office staff too!
Excellent Medical Doctor. Before I met Dr. Powell, I previously had chronic sinusitis, severe congestion, difficulty breathing through my nose, dreadful post-nasal drip, and sleep apnea which had made my life miserable with severe fatigue and quite depressed. I even had previous uvulopalatopharyngoplasty several years ago from a different ENT clinic which hadn't helped that much. I then heard about Tampa Bay ENT and Dr. Powell on 970 AM radio which informed that a new in-office surgery procedure was now available which could be done while the patient is awake during the procedure. I was hopeful that finally something could help me. I saw Dr. Powell in his office and he gave me a very thorough ENT exam followed by a CT Scan of my sinuses in his office and he then informed that I did have severe damage and polyps, which he showed me on the CT Scan. He informed that Ballon Sinuplasty would be a good option for me. His office then set up the Ballon Sinuplasty surgery date and Dr. Powell completed this ENT surgery in his Brandon office and it's been wonderful ever since! It has been great to breathe through my nostrils again (without congestion and post-nasal drip) since the surgery. I am able to have very restful sleep now, feel great, and enjoying life again Dr. Powell also had found that I was allergic to pollen, mold, and trees, with the skin allergy testing done in his office, and I've been on allergy treatments since the procedure with follow-up visits since then. It's really changed my life for the better without symptoms and owe it all to Dr. Powell. He is an excellent physician and ENT surgeon and I highly highly recommend him.
Dr. Powell and his staff are the best ENT practice in business. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Very pleasant first visit.
Knowledgeable, professional, and straightforward.
Nice office & staff...very thorough.
Dr Powell was very through and listens to you.Both visits 6/3 and 7/13. Yes I would recommend Dr, Powell
really appreciated Dr Powell's approach. Quick, to the point. Seemed engaged. Found problem and told me what to do. Great experience.
Really liked the visit with Dr. Powell, think he was very personable, professional and treated me with respect and explained my situation very well, answered my questions and gave me the considerations for my treatment with good detail.
I wasn't impressed with our visit. I wish they would review their policies and give out test results over the phone. Plenty of other offices share results with patients over the phone. There's no reason to make someone come in and be charged for an office visit if all the tests came back normal and they are just suggesting that you continue your care with another specialist. Usually, there is a long wait to be seen.
Object of visit achieved. Meds prescribed, but had to wait week plus for appointment. I went to walk-in clinc but no functional meds dispense. Sickness progress. Wanted to go to hospital. Pay a lot of money for health care going south. Still have cough. In another doctor's office now. This appointment two weeks plus. So I should be happy.
It went well. Dr. Powell answered questions. I left very satisfied.
Dr Powell is professional, experienced and has a great patient manner. Would and have recommended him to others.
Love Dr. Powell! He's fantastic!
I have been seeing Dr. Powell for about three years. He is very professional, has a quiet demeanor, and is very knowledgeable about his area of expertise. He has successfully performed sinuplasty surgery on my nose and treated me for throat and ear issues. I think you would be very happy with Dr. Powell as your ENT physician. The only negative issue, if at all, is that it takes a while to get an appointment with him. However, that indicates he is a good physician. The wait is worth it.
He a great Doctor keep up the good work Dr. Powell.
Dr.Powell was so kind to my special needs son. He was very nice and didn't rush me during our conversation. He gave us all options and great advice for my son's condition. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an ENT in the Brandon area!
Dr Powell is professional and treated my "prolem" with wonderful satisfaction. I would highly recommend this office.
Dr. Powell is a wonderful Doctor, very knowledgable and gives options when it comes to your care...not a one size fits all. The office staff is number 1. It was because of them I started using Dr. Powell, they answered all my questions, and there were 10, with professionalism, care, and humor above all. Highly recommended! AT
He's the Best. Makes me feel very comfortable and takes care of "business" with no other foolishness. He makes me feel confident that he knows all medical info to solve my ailments.
The staff is kind and helpful. Dr. Powell is very knowledgeable and patient with the kids!
The Dr. did a thorough exam and explanation of the treatment I need.
He answered my questions...was patient...explained options well.
Dr. Powell is very good at his profession. Efficient, thorough, and innovative. You can tell that he and his practice partners have a complete operation.
I really think he is a great Doctor and very good with his patients.
My husband used him, so I already knew how good he was. No second thought to go to him. Always takes the time to make sure you understand everything or have any questions. Would recommend him to my family and all my friends.
Never had a balloon sinusplasty procedure, he made me feel secure and calm as I could. He is very professional. Hopefully I will be able breathe Better than before.
He is a very through Dr. He is greatly appreciated
Dr. Scott Powell is excellent, without him treating me I would not be able to breath as clearly through my nose.
Dr. Powell is professional, to the point and answers any questions you may have. The entire staff is polite, pleasant & efficient. Dr. Barnes has helped me tremendously
Very thorough , and knowledgable
This office is very unpredictable! I only had to wait about 10 minutes to be seen by Dr. Powell today. However, I waited over 70 minutes on my last appointment! Be prepared (just in case)!
Dr. Powell is pleasant and to the point. Other than waiting a long time to see him, the office visit was good. He seems to know immediately what my problem is and treats it.
I was in to see Dr. Powell On October 29,2014. Dr. Powell has the ability to communicate specialist knowledge, diagnosis and treatment options in an easy-to-understand to understand. I have complete trust in him and would recommend his services to others.
always been seen at appointment time and he treats you with patience and interest in your problem
Dr. Powell is very professional and listens to you with your health issues. He is very caring and is very good in his area of expertise. I would recommend him to anyone with health issues pertaining to his profession. My son had to have sinus surgery thru Dr. Powell and is very satisfied also. 5 stars
New client, no problem getting a next day appointment. Very professional and efficient. Will have more interpersonal time when they adopt scribes to do the computer input. Overall very good visit and he solved my ear problem.
very thorough, good listener on getting the correct diagnosis. office is very upfront about what costs will be on additional tests prior to completing so you have no surprises when you leave the appt.
Dr. Powell exceeded my expectations. He demonstrated nothing but professionalism, honesty about his findings & diagnosis, effective listener and communicated in very effective manner, approachable and I came home with the sense of satisfaction which doesn't happen 50% of the time. I will highly recommend Dr. Scott Powell to anyone.
Very nice Doctor. Listened to my complaints, answered my questions, made me feel comfortable. Did not feel rushed.
Very thorough and expressive of what was going on and how we would proceed.
I have a son with Downs Syndrome, and Dr, Powell is so good with him, which means more than you c an ever know. Thanks Dr. Powell. Carolyn Wing
Very professional and I would recommend him to a friend or colleague.
Very professional Doctor and staff. Highly recommended.
He actually discussed my issues with me. I've had doctors in the past dismiss what I said like I was lying to them to the score some antibiotics or sinus surgery or something I have no clue. It was refreshing not to have to deal with a doctor who made me feel like a criminal.
the doctor is great, the wait was unacceptable. Our appointment was at 4:10 and didn't get called back until 5pm then 15 more min to see the doctor.
It was overall a great experience I feel confident that he will find out whats wrong with me and get me feeling better. I just am a bit confused about medications and what i can or should take since I feel so miserable :(
I was pleased with my visit. I hope he will be able to solve the problem with my loss of taste and smell. If I have a good outcome, I will shout it out to the world. The thought of not being able to taste and smell is very devastating.
Office is run in a professional and efficient, yet friendly way. I saw him within minutes of my appointment (unlike other doctor's offices). I was informed of everything.
I liked Dr. Powell. I would recommended him. He was very nice and answered my questions when asked and showed me exactly what i did not understand.
Dr Powell is very professional & a compassionate doctor....he understands when you are in pain or sick....he is worth any wait time or drive time...
Quick but not rushed, professional, knowledgable. I have mixed feelings about the total computer reliance. I took in significant history records, but don't know if they were considered by the doctor.
I think he is a well knowledge doctor and I trust him, very nice person.
Dr. Powell was very professional & thorough. He addressed my issues completely.
Great Doctor! Explained a all my options and treatment.
Dr. Powell was very very nice, taking the time to explain and show me pictures of my particular problem. Not in a big rush to get me out of there like so many doctors these days do. Loved using ZocDoc as well...it worked seamlessly .
