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!!!

This man is super rude and arrogant. Not only that, he omits very important information during visits. He overtalks you and is a bit confrontational. During my first (and last) visit he diagnosed me with adhd and anxiety but the emailed statement for $655 which says i also suffer from bipolar disorder. This should have been discussed. But his reposnse when we spoke was “i was going to tell u in the second visit”. But that was followed up with “there are several doctors in the area u can go to”
