You were my Physician here in Havasu and you were my favorite Dr that I've ever had! I will miss the warm and caring conversations we had. You took so much time at appointments to explain everything so well! You helped me through a lot! I will miss your sense of humor too. RIP

My most heartfelt sympathies go out to you Denise and your beautiful girls. I know how much Tom adored you and doted over your daughters; he was so proud of them and loved you all so much. The words that come to mind when I think about Tom are kind, gentle, true, funny, generous, warm and loving. I will miss his ribbing, his counsel, and his wonderful friendship. May his memory be a blessing and always bring a smile to your hearts. With love. Chuck Dushman PS I hope he finally got those Apple hearing aids!

Dr. Powers was my primary care physician since 1989 when we moved to town and he first started his practice here. He was a wonderful doctor and friend. In addition to being truly caring and compassionate, his drive to continue his education and bring the latest developments in medicine and whole-body care into his practice was something that I admired about him. Our sincerest condolences to Denise, his entire family, and his wonderful staff.
