Enjoyed my first visit with Dr. Owens. Great bedside manners - he really takes his time with the initial intake visit. He ensured me we'd work together to get me back to "myself" and back on track. I look forward to more visits.

I came back to this website to specifically remove my previous excellent review. Absolutely shocking and unprofessional follow up experience. I cannot believe that a psychiatrist would essentially tell a mother with post partum anxiety/postpartum depression working in healthcare during a pandemic to essentially suck it up or quit their job. I’m horrified and just want to warn any other women who may need help with perinatal mood disorders to avoid this practice.

Due to Covid my sessions are all on the talkPHR app. Dr. Owens is awesome and the medication he has put me on works wonders for me. I feel more stable and sleep better too. I do my part in exercising by walking a lot, eating right and keeping active too. He cares about me as a human being and listens carefully to what I have to say about how I feel. Very different from other doctors and I am thankful for him.

My experience with Dr. Owens and his team has been excellent. He is attentive and straightforward. I especially appreciate his demeanor when discussing issues that can be difficult to hear. His ability to empathize with his patients while providing fact based evidence for solutions regarding medication management and therapy has been a game changer for me. I’m so glad I have had the opportunity to work him. His officer mgr. has a delightful demeanor and returns calls within a reasonable amount of time.

There seems to be some fraud going on here. I was told they would do a drug test. Fine. They pricked by finger and took a few drops. I spent just a few minutes with the doctor while he read my diagnosis from the results of a questionaire I had just completed on his tablet. Then he filed a claim over $4,000 with my insurance. No recommendation, no prescription. Just a bill. Turns out, his office lied about being in my insurance network. The office does not respond. Stay away!!

Dr Owens is a good and caring doctor. I’ve always been treated professionally. When I had billing questions it was explained carefully and calmly to me. About drug screening, Dr Owens takes seriously his duty to prescribe medicine responsibly- I appreciate that! This was the first black owned and operated medical practice I have visited (I am not black). To say I wasn’t a little nervous about this would be a lie. Their care showed me my nervousness was unfounded and it quickly disappeared.

My first and only visit was a nightmare! I just moved to Brookhaven, Georgia and I had to find a new doctor in the area, which is already scary enough. Dr. Owens spent less than 5 minutes with me and never looked at my medical history from previous doctors. He was disrespectful to me and my time. I was shocked he turned me away as a patient, but at that moment I realized it's a money grab for him. He charged my insurance over $4,000 with a balance of $400 that I have to pay. He is a fraud!!!
