Just had my six month check up with Dr. John Owen and Staff after bi lateral cataract surgeries. The experience of the surgeries was extremely easy. All questions were answered before hand. Going in, I knew I had a very experienced professional Doctor that had my best interest in his hands. His office staff is well trained and highly professional. I highly recommend Dr. John Owen and Staff for all of your ophthalmic needs!
