      Over the last 5 years Dr.Owens has taken very good care of my concerns of losing my sight due to medicine taking due to my lupus . Also I have had surgery on both eyes, not only doing a good job ,but he followed up with a personal call to me to ask how I was doing. After having several problems with the VA to have eye surgery for my Father-in -law, I called Dr. Owens office and they had him come in the same day and surgery complete by the following week. Thank you Dr. Owen
      Dr Owen is an awesome ophthalmologist and surgeon.
