He has a wonderful dermatologist with many years of experience and great bedside manner
Louisville, KY |
Me and my husband went into the office ,to have a check to make sure we didn't have any issues with our skin. Once we got called back the Dr. Came in all he did was run one finger down each arm and looked at my back. I had to ask him about my legs where I have some bumps and said your fine,no issues. The same with my husband , he has some spots on his nose and leg . Felt like it was a waste time. They had a tray there with a needle , and other instruments should not have been out .

I have been seeing Dr. Owen for almost 20 years. He is a great doctor. I had radiation treatment for cancer in 1979, resulting in lots of skin cancers. He takes care of them with no problem.
Shepherdsville, KY |
Very rude staff.. I scheduled an appointment with these rude people and cancelled it later after finding a professional and patient friendly staffed Dermatologist . When cancelling the appointment with a week's advanced notice (as a courtesy), I was hung up on.
Louisville, KY |
The staff was rude and clearly unhappy to be there. I got a nasty look for not rushing my toddler into the exam room just to be asked what are you here for? The doctor spent all of 5 minutes with us, wrote several prescriptions, and seemed annoyed to answer questions about them. He had no interest in our history or my concerns. We will not be back.

Staff was rude and disrespectful over all terrible experience.
