I was nervous seeing this provider after reading the reviews - but glad I went. If you want a competent provider who will assess your symptoms and formulate possible diagnoses as well as provide an awesome explanation of what might be happening, I highly recommend this provider. Dr. Ownbey asked good clinical questions, did an EEG assessment onsite to rule out other issues, and explained some ways I can better manage my migraines. True, he was not warm and fuzzy, but I definitely recommend.

Saw this jerk for symptoms of Parkinson's around 2012. I had a history of tremor, falls, hand atrophy, shuffling gait, and confusion. Did a 10 minute exam and he had me walk about 4 feet tandem walking, normal walking, and tip toeing. I was 47 years old at the time and he told me I was too young to have Parkinson's. I'm a nurse. He was offended by my reaction and all but threw my out of his office. unacceptable. I was diagnosed with Parkinson's this February in Little Rock, AR.

Horrible doctor. Avoid at all costs. 3 years ago I went to him for numbness and tingling in my hands and feet. Told me it was because I lost a lot of weight. I felt like he enjoyed the electric shock tests he did on me. I should have got a second opinion then but I assumed he knew what he was talking about. Lost the ability to drive in March 2017 and started looking into my issue again. Diagnosed with MS and a Chiari Malformation in April 2017. Trust your instincts & be your own advocate!

First, his office staff was extremely helpful with all the new patient paperwork and extremely friendly and outgoing. Second Dr. Ownbey was on time and spent a great deal of time listening to my symptoms and asking additional questions about them. He performed several tests on me and then recommended follow up blood testing and an eeg. Overall, I was extremely anxious about seeing a neurologist and came away feeling calm and trusting in him.

He did not talk to me at all. He was not responsive to questions or explain the procedures.
