Milton Owens (COE)
My very first impression was that he was a very serious man, but after he read my medical record and looked up at me and smiled, I warmed right up to him. I think he's great. He saved my life with the surgery. I love the way he teases me. My drain accidently came out while I was walking around the nurses station after surgery, and he teases me about pulling it out on purpose. Dr. Owens greatly emphasizes aftercare, insistes that we exercise and use weights, and that we attend support group meetings. His clinic sponsors two support group meetings a week. I know some clinics that only have one a month. I think his staff could be better organized but they are very friendly. The information they put out in their pre-op classes and in the handouts can be confusing, overwhelming and contradicting. You really have to dig in and ask questions to get it all straight. He goes over the risks of surgery, but he should probably drill it into his patients because we are all so blinded with the possibility of losing weight and feeling better. I think his surgical competence and bedside manner are both great. I've had a couple of minor complications, and he returned my phone calls immediately, with one being late at night. I would rate Dr. Owens a 9 out of 10, not a 10 because of staff disorganization. They could use a patient liaison who has actually had weight loss surgery. No one in his office has had the surgery. His support groups get 10s. They are all great people and we are like family. The above previous statements are just my own personal impressions of my own personal experience, and I am not making any statements about what other people may experience.
