Patient Shelly R. shares how this physician assistant made a difference in her life:  

“I cannot say enough to recognize the compassion and humanitarian efforts of Shirley Powell, PA-C. Shirley is not only a credit to her profession but a more accurate description might be to call her an angel on earth. Her compassion is only superseded by her dedication to never give up until she finds a solution. I’m convinced that Shirley has saved my mother’s life…and probably on more than one occasion.

My mother has what is called 'metabolic syndrome.' It’s a complex phenomenon which includes excessively high cholesterol, triglycerides, high blood pressure and diabetes. On top of it all…her diabetes is insulin-resistant. Although Shirley will admit my mother has been the most challenging patient to date, she has never given up on her.” —Shelly R.
