Worst experience I've ever had with a doctor talked and treated me like trash and didn't listen to me at all
in Little Rock, AR |
Dr Owings was my Dr for close to 3 years. He always listened carefully to my issues and was always very helpful. Even when I moved away and had to find a different Dr he and his staff were very helpful.

He never calls you back on time of your appointment. Once your in there he seems he could careless with what your going through and is in a real hurry to get you out of his office. Doesn't explain medicines well at all. Had to have the pharmacist do it. He doesn't care what you have to say because he tells me to talk to someone else to get these thoughts to stop. I wasn't even in his office 5 mins before he was standing up pushing me and my little girl out the door.

I feel comfortable with Dr Owing. I feel he listens to what I say. He's treating me for a pre existing diagnosis with medications I've lived well with and happy with for years. I feel lucky that he's my doctor.

Recommended. Your visit their will Change your life for the best. Just see for yourself.

I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Owings. He has been my doctor for the past 4 years, I have never had any issues with him. He takes the time to explain what he is prescribing and why he is prescribing. He does not keep you in the office long unless needed.
in Jacksonville, AR |
For 15 months he prescribed effexor for my son. His condition got worse over that time. My wife and I went into his last visit and Dr Owings said he never prescribed the efexor. He said he misdiagnosed him and he should never have been on the effexor. This guy shouldn't be practicing medicine. I'm surprised his partners have not distanced themselves from him. He only spent 5 minutes per visit and just gave out drugs.
