Thomas E. Powell, MD
Board-Certified Orthopedic Surgeon In AL
“I love what I do! The practice of medicine is the most rewarding profession. I could not imagine being a part of anything more exciting. It has given me the honor and privilege of serving people of all ages and in many different circumstances. For this reason, I consider the practice of medicine not just a job, but a calling about which I am passionate.
Since entering practice over 20 years ago, I can honestly say that I have never gotten up in the morning wishing I had chosen another vocation. My goal has been, and continues to be, to meet patients where they are, listen to them, and develop a plan to help them have not only a better today, but to achieve a better tomorrow.” ~ Dr. Powell
