Dr. Owen was recommended to me by a friend who had back surgery for the same condition I had. He operated on me and repaired the damaged area. I am very pleased at this time with the outcome. I highly recommend him.

Does not explain surgery well or what will happen if things don't go as expected. No bedside manner. If you ask for follow-up, he sloughs you off on another doctor
