Dr. Owens is like the doctors I believe were around when my parents were young. She walked me through two years of on and off actinic keratosis and NMSCC treatments and, while I respected her time and came prepared to our appointments, displayed unbridled patience with me. I have a lot of respect for Dr. Owens and anybody would be lucky to know her and have her in their corner.

Have used Dr. Owens for a number of years. She is professional, friendly, concerned, and conservative. If she notices a possible problem, she will not wait and watch but take action immediately. This attribute saved my life. I would definitely recommend Dr. Owens as a dermatologist.

I have been a patient of Dr Owens for several years. She is very professional , knowledgeable and has a naturally lovely personality. I enjoy all my visits with her.She takes the time to explain any conditions I may have and discuss all treatment options available to me . I feel Dr Owens is one of the few physicians around who is caring and strives to give all her patients the best care.

Dr. Owens provides excellent care! She is the most effective, efficient and thorough physician I have ever had. I have complete confidence in her skills, knowledge and abilities. Her billing has proved more than reasonable to me and in fact, I once received a refund for an overcharge! She and her staff are always friendly and cheerful and she always takes the time to explain everything and to answer questions. Dr. Owens is simply the best physician I have had in 50 years.
in San Antonio, TX |
Dr. Owens is efficient, kind, and very detailed oriented. Her demeanor allows me to process the difficult news about my skin situations (melanoma). I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!
San Antonio, TX |
Carelessness on the part of Dr. Owens billing staff has adversely impacted my credit status. Lab bills sent to the wrong address provided by her billing staff were never received and reported as unpaid.
