Dr. Powell is wonderful.


Dr Powell was the most friendly doctor I’ve ever been seen by. She answered my concerns easily and clearly! I wish I would’ve found her sooner, now she’s moving to the Lake Odessa location! I would definitely consider driving to that location so I can continue to see her!


I have seen Dr Powell a couple times and absolutely love her. She’s so friendly, attentive and very informative. I will definitely request to see her again.


Overall waiting time was very long to meet Dr. Powell - she did apologize to me for my waiting time.


This was my first time with Dr. Powell and she was amazing! She explained everything going on with my eyes and made sure I understood the plan of action all while being very friendly and likeable!


Wonderful person; great, caring, listening Doctor.


My first time with Dr. Powell and she was very easy to talk to. I will definitely be back for all my eye care needs.


She was wonderful and I would highly recommend her. Very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful.


Dr. Powell is a very caring doctor. The only complaint is waiting time to see dr. Both times I have had to be seen by Dr. Powell I have had to wait unusually long times. My first appt.I waited 30-40 minutes. Second appt I waited an hour before I was able to see doctor.


Dr. Powell made me feel very at ease during the duration of the appointment - everything went quickly, and we had some good laughs. Would highly recommend!

Honestly.....Dr. Julie Powell is the best eye doctor I have ever had. I will follow her anywhere! LO Eye Care is fortunate to have her on staff. I have recommended her to so many. She is thorough, professional and very kind.


Great experience


Dr. Powell is fantastic. I usually get very nervous going to any type of doctor. She puts me at ease and listens to my concerns. She addresses those concerns in her diagnosis and treatment plan. She is very good at what she does!


Dr. Powell was wonderful. This was my first time meeting with her & I am very happy with our treatment plan. I look forward to being a patient of hers.


My experience was first class throughout my entire time at L.O. Eyecare. I’m a returning customer who tried another provider outside network and was not pleased so I came back. I’ll not make that mistake again! Thank you and I’m very pleased to be your customer again.


She was very informative. Listened to my questions or concerns and answered them appropriately.


This was my first visit with Dr. Powell after having been a patient of Dr. Burnett's for many years. I was very comfortable and the transition was great.

I really like this doctor. As a first time contact lens wearer, I feel like there is a real disconnect on who is supposed to explain how to wear, care for, order, and receive the contact lenses. Otherwise, I love my doctor.

She confirmed the diagnosis that my prior doctor (retired now) gave me and she also found something that was not caught prior. I highly recommend her and really looking forward to my next appointment with her next year. Awesome, great, knowledgeable, friendly. A great asset to the L O Eyecare.


She was very helpful and mentioned some changes in my eyes that I was not aware of. Not sure if they were there 2 years ago or not. But new info for me.

Dr. Powell's personality is one that puts a client at ease. It's good to be able to laugh and still trust her expertise!


I really liked her, I wasn't planning on caring on way or another since I have had Dr Hemming for 40 years or so and NO one can compare to him. But she was really nice and I referred my neighbor to see her too. Dr. Powell even came out to meet her since she was my driver.




Dr. Powell is an excellent optometrist! She is skilled and just an all-around nice person! She's very good with children and adults who are nervous about eye exams. We look forward to seeing her every year!

Doctor was amazing and super friendly!!! Great visit!!


She was very sweet and pleasant to work with.


Dr Powell is an incredible representative of L.O. Eye Care. My diagnosis is not critical, however my husband did have a serious condition, without hesitation Dr Powell referred him to an expert in that disease, also communication with her is great. Final note: Dr Powell actually listens to the patient!


I learned information about my eyesight that no other doctor had explained to me in 58 years. This simple information that took less than two minutes to explain, was a vital key, to some of my symptoms my neurological specialists have been struggling with for years.


She is wonderful to work with!!!!

I was very thankful to see Dr. Powell regarding my eyes. Her friendliness helped in seeing a new doctor in regards to the discomfort in the eye. The treatment that she recommended solved the discomfort.




She was great! I actually left in a better mood than when I arrived. The receptionists and the assistant were also excellent.


She had one of the best "bedside manners" I've ever encountered and I work with doctors every day. A fantastic personality coupled with clearly abundant knowledge.


I was very impressed and happy to continue care with her
