    Dr. Owens did my Lap Band surgery almost five years ago. He gave me realistic data and averages for weight loss after having the Lap Band procedure. I told him I wanted to lose more and this was the only surgery my heart doctor approved me for, he then encouraged me to follow his plan and I lost over 200 lbs! & I kept it off! My surgery went well and I continue to see him for my adjustments and periodic visits. I'm always impressed how informative, empathetic & caring he is everytime I see him

    I found Dr owens to be a very caring, compassionate, ethical, and capable surgeon. He definitely has a passion for his craft and it shows! I am very happy I chose him to do my surgery. I am a Certified Surgical Technologist (20 years) and I also scrubbed Dr Owens's bariatric cases as well as panniculectomys, and total body lifts. I worked with him for several years so I am acutely aware of his expertise. I would recommend Dr Owens without the least bit of reservation. I'd trust him with my life!
