I don't usually go to see a doctor unless there is something really out of the ordinary. I went in because I had very sore throat at the base of throat near my collar bone and did not have any signs of infection: fever, swollen lymph notes. It was very painful and difficult for me to swallow and there was also a very visible lump. I was concerned because there was no sign of sickness and thought that perhaps it could be a thyroid issue. When I saw the doctor, she was very curt and dismissive of any concerns that I had. When I told her about the visible lump when I leaned my head back she told me that's not how a throat check is done. She said a neck check is only done when your head is in normal position so she didn't even take a look at it. After a 2 minute exam, she rushed me out to make an appointment for an ultrasound. That was the worst initial meeting with a doctor that I have ever had!!

And I have NEVER had to sign a form with any doctor where I give up my constitutional right for litigation and agree to go into arbitration in case of malpractice. Makes me think that there have been enough cases of malpractice where this form is needed. RED FLAG!

This office must pay people to write reviews for them! I made the mistake of believing the 23, five star reviews. I went to Dr. Owens for a sore throat that I had had for over a month. She looked at my throat for a mere second and said it was tonsillitis and informed me that I need to schedule to get my tonsils removed. Thankfully, I got a second opinion. Turns out it was NOT tonsillitis and simple acid reflux. If I had not gone in for a second opinion I would have gotten completely unnecessary surgery. Save your time and money and do not go to Dr. Owens. Her staff was rude and her office was not welcoming.

I used to get the worst sinus' whenever I got sick. When I was referred to Dr. Owens for my issue, she gave me a thorough examination, and gave me advice as to how to lesson the pain in my face, and gave me the best prescription. Ever since then, my sinus' have become minimal. Thank you for the great care.

I used to have the worse allergies, but ever since I seen Dr. Owens, she gave me the best product that suits my problem. Now when my allergies hit, I don't have to be afraid to go outside. I really appreciate her expertise.

I was afraid I wouldn't be able to enjoy the outdoors anymore, because my sinus' were starting to get really bad. But, thank goodness a friend referred me to Dr. Owens, and now I enjoy the great outdoors with all my buddies. Thank you so much for being so awesome!

I had this issue with one of my ears feeling clogged up, which effected my neck - I had a constant soreness feeling in my neck, and at times I felt I was off balance. I sought out Dr. Owens, and she treated my issue so well, that I no longer have an issue! I really appreciate her expertise and compassion. She truly is a wonderful doctor.

I recently had called to schedule an appointment with the doctor. The day of my appointment I had a last minute emergency I had to take care of and had to cancel. I rescheduled but not without her giving me an attitude. Then I called back and canceled again ( 1 week in advance) because I had to go out of town for my job,. The receptionist then said that if I called one more time to cancel then I would not be allowed to schedule an appointment ever again. I thought that was extremely rude and unprofessional. Life happens, and if they are not very understanding of a busy person as all of us here in L.A. are, then I wouldn't want to give them my business. Horrible first impression.
