Dr. Owens is a wonderful doctor. She thoroughly explained the different treatments available and then discussed with methe best treatment option out of those available. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the wait time was maybe 10 minutes at most.

My dermatology appointment with Doctor Nicole Owens, MD was probably the best medical appointment I have ever had. Or at least in memory, for a military veteran going on seventy nine years old. She was perfect. I hope she never losesher "bed side manners!" She was gentle, took her time and treated me like I was her only patient, which, of course, I was not. Thank you for connected me with her as a patient.

Dr. Owen’s is always very professional,always very timely. Most of her office staff is as well with the exception of Celeste at the front desk who should get some help on how to answer patient requests in a more helpful andpleasant manner. As patient’s we don’t always know about insurance procedures . When a patient requests help snapping back at them and brushing patient’s off her hand and a reply “your insurance company knows what to do” Just isn’t very reassuring and certainly not helpful. I almost apologized for even exsisting. She definitely needs some work on customer care especially if she will work at the front desk. Please bring back original friendly lady at front desk!

Some of the friendliest and happiest staff I have ever encountered in a doctors office. They were ready for me before I even finished the paperwork. Doctor Ownes is very caring and takes time to listen to you and all ofyour concerns. I did not feel rushed what so ever. I will definitely be back and recommend to others.

The most important thing about Dr. Owens and her office is how professional they are and how fast they worked me in. I had a sore on my arm that appeared over night and was growing everyday and painful. I calledtwo other dermatologist's offices and one told me I could get in within 6 weeks and the other in 2 months. I explained in detail what was wrong and it didn't matter. I called Dr. Owens office, told them my situation and they had me in the next day at 8:00am. Doctors are supposed to provide "care" for their patience, not put them on an unrealistic waiting list. Dr. Owens saw me and immediately knew what was wrong, gave me treatment and put me on a antibiotic. Both of us were pleased when I came in for my follow up 2 weeks later and I was completely healed. This doctor and her staff should be a modes for all doctor's office.
