"My name is Elner Strickland and I am a patient of Dr. Powell. My Oncologist sent me to him in July for a small lump coming up in the middle of a radiation scar. He took a biopsy that day and it came back positive for cancer. On July 26th he operated and removed the cancer and radiation scar and put on a "pig skin" graft. Everyone was very nice and kind to me. Since it was such a large area removed, and I am diabetic, it is not healed yet but getting much better. I still receive good care and kindness every time I go."

"Before I started going to Dr Powell my regular doctor had me trying every over-the-counter salve and oil. But we found nothing to stop the itch of my psoriasis. Once I had been referred to Dr. Gavin Powell we tried prescription salves with little results. He then suggested we try narrowband UVB light treatments 3 times per week. They have been great; the psoriasis is almost cleared up after 23 weeks. It’s amazing and I look forward to the day it is in full remission thanks to Dr. Powell. Thanks for the relief."

"Having a heart transplant and kidney transplant I am required to take medications that can cause skin conditions such as skin cancer. Dr. Powell is extremely aware of the problems that can occur with transplant patients and he has successfully identified and treated many skin cancers for me. This gives me peace of mind. I truly appreciate Dr. Powell’s care and concern and recommend him highly."

"Recently our 7 year old daughter contracted a strep infection which resulted in a serious skin disorder. Because of Dr. Powell's unique qualifications as a Dermatologist, he was able to treat her completely. Upon entering his offices for treatment she was quite nervous, but Dr. Powell and his staff put her at ease quickly, and she left smiling. Thank you DCCC!"

"November 2005, I was treated at the Dermatology Center of Canyon County for "Melasma," which had discolored my face for years. Several years ago I tried a special cream to reduce the discoloration, with daily applications for weeks, without any success. Dr. Powell recommended treatment of my condition with laser. The laser treatment was skillfully applied by his aesthetician Helen, who took great care to make my treatment as comfortable as possible.

Two weeks after the initial treatment, the result is remarkable. About 90% of the discoloration disappeared after just one treatment, and my skin looks better than it has in 15 years. I am exceedingly pleased with the care I have received at the Dermatology Center of Canyon County and I plan to continue my skincare with them."

"Doctors like Dr. Powell are rare these days. He is an excellent listener who really cares about your symptoms and he goes above and beyond to give the best possible care. My daughter, who was two at the time, saw him for a second opinion. She had been suffering with a terrible itch for almost two years. We had been told it was eczema by another doctor for those two years. Dr. Powell listened to us at our first visit, diagnosed her with a fungal infection, and she was getting relief almost immediately. She was cured in three months. Since then, Dr. Powell was willing to go out of his way and call a colleague out of state for help. Dr. Powell gave the correct diagnosis again. My daughter then received treatment for a rare genetic disorder and is now symptom free. Without Dr. Powell’s caring attitude, great listening skills, and his desire to go above and beyond, my family would not be as happy and healthy as we are today. My husband and I have also been patients and we have always received excellent treatment. I would recommend Dr. Powell to anyone seeking a great doctor."
