Day to remember and celebrate

Today, December 19, I completed the last follow up visit with dr. Brett Owens. I was happy to know that, after six months from my right shoulder rotator cuff surgery, I am completely healed. Before my surgery, I was unable to move my arm in any direction. I was unable to perform daily chores, to work, to play tennis or to enjoy dancing. Now, after a successful surgery and physical therapy rehabilitation, I can return to my normal life and favorite activities. I must thank dr. Brett Owens. His training, experience and extraordinary ability made the difference in the outcome of my surgery. The deep and acute tears of my rotator cuff were repaired and NO scars, not even a small bump, are visible on my shoulder. Very, very glad for both results! I also greatly appreciate dr. Owens' outgoing personality, his detailed explanations to my questions, and his support of my needs and goals. I must also thank dr. Owens' team for its professionalism and the valuable expertise and dedication of Ms. Kelly De Simone, the physical therapist who has followed me and motivated me to do effective drills and exercises since my June surgery. Today I can celebrate my successful recovery! With gratitude and appreciation, Santina

Dr Owens is a competent and capable surgeon who has a great bedside manner that instills confidence and caring in patients. His post-op follow up was conscientious and supportive, helping me achieve a great result. My wife wants me to add that he also took excellent care of her concerns before the procedure.

Excellent Doctor

Dr. Owens performed knee surgery on me. He called me the night before surgery to check on me which no other doctor had ever done before. The morning of surgery he spent time with me to re-explain the surgery and re-cooperation time and what to expect. I never waited more than 5 mins, in the office for my follow-up visits, he answered my questions in a way I would understand everything. His bedside manner is terrific as is Dr Owens staff. I highly recommend Dr. Owens.
