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.

Dr. Owen performed a minimally invasive back surgery on me (66 y/o male) to fuse 2 vertebrate. The surgery was a success and I no longer have leg pain and I am not falling down. Dr. Owen is very personable and professional, I trust his advise and will continue to see him in the future for neck issue.
