Ratings for Dr. John M. Owens
Dr. Owens was fine,...it's the office manager witch that I can't stand... I don't have healthcare as I pay out of pocket, so the other day I was there to see Dr Owens and this witch says out loud so that the whole office can hear, "He's gotta pay $500.00 NOW" The office visit wasn't even close to $500.00... and what if I didn't have $500.00,... (in cash or on my credit card),.. she would have denied me service? Then as I was scheduling for an MRI they told me it would be $500.00,... ok, I asked if I could give them $250.00 up front and the balance when I come to do the MRI,... the guy asked the WITCH and she said "NO, it has to be paid in full"...
I see another doctor at this office for a different issue who is knowledgeable and helpful. Imagine my surprise when I was referred to this doctor who spent 1 minute with me and then charged for a "long" office visit. He was not helpful and is probably one of the worst doctors I've seen without truly examining the patient.
The office staff isn't the best. The are rude and not bright. Dr. Owens is a wonderful surgeon. I had shoulder and knee surgery and both were 100% successful. I was left with minimal scaring. He is big on conversation but do want a fine surgeon of a baby sitter?
His office staff has a callous disregard for your pain. A week after being examined for back pain the prescription medication ran out and I called to ask them to contact the pharmacy to renew it which they refused to do. My next appointment wasn't supposed to be for two more weeks. They wanted me to call back the next day as the doctor was in surgery that day. When I told them that it meant I would be in pain for 24 hours unless I went to an emergency room they still didn't care. They never offered to have another member of the practice help or for Doctor Owens to call when he was done with surgery. At this practice they seem to think it is ok for patients to suffer unnecessarily instaed of having a doctor pick up a phone. Do yourself a favor and find a doctor and staff that actually cares.
Went in for routine rotator cuff surgery, and had my long thoracic severed, and was told my condition was normal and would improve, since surgery have been cut off by the office, won’t answer calls and denies misstate made... DONT USE THIS DOCTOR ROUTINE SURGERYS TURN INTO LIFE ALTERING DAMAGE!!!!!!!!!!!
