Very Satisfied
I had gone to see Dr. Justin Owen for a second opinion on back surgery. He explained to me how he could do a L5/S1 back fusion. He was able to explain to me how the surgery is performed to where I could understand what was going to be done. He told me there was a possibility I may have some nerve pain after surgery for a while until the nerve heals itself and sure enough that is what I am going through now. The surgery went Great! Having surgery is not an easy decision to make but after talking with Dr. Owen it made the decision easier. I would definitely recommend Dr. Owen to anyone needing surgery.

Dr. Owen is wonderful. I could not stand up straight before surgery because of the pain in my lower back. After surgery there is no pain and I can stand up straight. Wish I had done this earlier.

Thank You!
No one I know looks forward to surgery, but I went into my back surgery confident that I knew what to expect and that I was in competent hands. Prior to my surgery Dr. Owen thoroughly explained my procedure, even drew pictures, and what I could expect postoperatively and during my recovery period. He answered all my questions completely and pleasantly. My surgery was indeed successful and I am pain free. Paige, the nurse practitioner, followed me in post op office visits. She was great and explained what my x-rays showed and what my current restrictions should be. Office visits had short wait times. Office staff were helpful and pleasant. I would certainly recommend Dr. Owen and his team to my friends and family.

I went to Dr. Owen about my back pain. At my office visit he took the time to explain and show my husband and I exactly what was causing me so much pain. There were days I literally could not walk. He spent as much time as needed to explain the options and discuss each in detail. He never made either of us feel rushed or awkward about any of the multiple questions we had. He felt confident he could get me back to 100%. I was in so much pain I was extremely skeptical 100% was ever a possibility but his demeanor and confidence allowed me to make the decision to proceed with the surgery. He delivered in a huge way. Everything Dr. Owen said and prepared me for happened. Six weeks later I was on a trip to Colorado! He, Paige and his entire team from receptionist, billing to recovery are simply the best. Thank you, Thank you. Thank you for giving me back my ability to live my life pain free!

Disappointed
I would not recommend him to anyone. The only thing we both agreed on was no more surgery. I have severe neuropathy in my right front to the point it is dangerous for me to drive. He could not or did not suggest any help for this problem. I was not impressed with this doctor.

Dr. Owen performed a surgery on my 78 year old father's back. He had been suffering in pain for a few years and had tried all of the usual treatments. He finally got some relief thanks to Dr. Owen. He said "I feel like a new man!"

My 92 year old grandmother was very active until her back starting hurting. She tried physical therapy but continued to decline. It was heartbreaking to see this vibrant woman barely able to stand up. Dr. Owen literally gave her instant relief. The day after the surgery, she felt zero pain and was standing completely upright. If I could give him 100 stars, I would! Next up, my 77 year old father. His appointment Is next week!

Dr. Owen is an amazing doctor and person. He actually took the time to listen to me and the problems I was having. He explained things so that I could understand what he was saying. He treated me like a person and not just another patient in the office. He was truthful and said would not do anything that he wouldn’t do for his own family member. His staff is equally amazing. They all are nice, attentive, and willing to work with patients to make appointments that accommodate their schedules. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Owen and his staff. I live close to 2 hours away from his office, and the trip is worth it. He has been the only one that has said I have a serious problem and that he will do what he can to fix it. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a neurosurgeon or second opinion.

Dr. Owen was able to accurately diagnose my mother’s extremely rare demyelinating condition that is often misdiagnosed as a brain tumor. He advised against a brain biopsy that would have left her with permanent and severe damage. His knowledge and professionalism are absolutely impressive. I will be forever grateful.
