Horrible experience. Family member cried after visit. He is very abrupt and formulates his own views and does not allow one to fully discuss or explain things

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”

Dr Owens has a no reschedule policy for new patients. My flight was cancelled and I was stranded in la, when I called to reschedule, I was rudely told that they could recommend another psych, but, I could never meet with dr Owens. I asked for an explanation as to why he wouldn’t want me as a patient and the bulldog of a receptionist offered no answer. The same office that has an unspoken no rescheduling policy, also has poor scheduling practices.

I’ve dealt with many mental health doctors and all they cared about was my money and writing death sentence prescription. Dr Owen and his staff take the time to listen and understand your medical needs. Yes, they take vitals and yes they tackle health regulations and compliance head on. Dr Owen and his staff are educated and are here to help an individual on a case by case basis. I highly recommend Dr Owens if you care about your future well being

Diva is the word that comes to mind. He required you to weigh in and get your blood pressure taken before every appointment....and not by a nurse...his office staff. Then he would spend the whole time telling me all about his personal trainer while drinking a huge sweet tea. He was always late because he was doing something else...not because he was with another patient. All about him
