Jeffersonville, IN |
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.
