"I was diagnosed with a faulty saphenous vein on 10/02/2000.  The same week a fellow employee was diagnosed with the same problem.  While he opted for using the Doctor covered by the HMO, I used Dr. Owens services. After working a full 8 hour day, I had Dr. Owens operate on my leg using the new VNUS Closure method. Two hours later, I walked out of his office and went home. I was back at work at 5 am the next day. I worked a full 8 hours standing on my feet. I had absolutely no pain or swelling, just a slight bit of a tingle which went away completely in just a few days, I missed no work at all.

However, my co-worker wasn't so lucky.  He was hospitalized for three days.  His veins were stripped under a general anesthetic, and he was off for a whole month. Even after 4 weeks, he was still having pain, plus he now had twelve scars on his leg.  Even though I had to pay the entire bill myself it was less expensive in the long run. My co-worker lost a full months pay plus he still had all the co-pays for the hospital, and all the follow up visits, pain killers, etc..  In the end, he saw that by trying to save a few dollars by using the HMO he actually spent more than I did.  I would definitely recommend the VNUS Closure method anyday.  It's really worth the cost."

"I would like to thank a very skilled and caring doctor, whom I was beginning to think did not exist, for giving me something I was very embarrassed about for the last 10 years of my life, an appealing leg without varicosities.  Summers were always something everyone looked forward to, but for me it was just another long stretch of time that I needed to conceal myself...

Thanks to my husband...surfing the internet... he found Dr. Richard Owens.  Dr. Owens explained to me exactly what was going on and why, and what he needed to do to correct the problem.

It is late fall now, and it's hard for me to believe that I'm looking so forward to summer, the season I always resisted, to wear shorts and swimsuits again without feeling the whole world was looking at my leg.  I feel confident again, and to me, 'normal', thanks to a doctor who cares, and is passionate about his work.  What a wonderful feeling!"

"I looked into the large chain specializing in veins, but came away with a feeling of 'fast food' indifference that gave me no confidence...

Dr. Owens was honest and truly interested in me as an individual this treatment could help.  He is on the cutting edge of what is possible in vein therapy- keeping up with improved technologies which appear to require a great deal of time on his part.  He's motivated more than any medical professional I've met.  Beyond that, he cares about not causing pain if it can possibly be avoided.

I'd sum up Dr. Owens as brilliant, professional and caring.

His procedures work and I would recommend him to my mother, sister, anyone. My legs look and feel great.  I've pretty much forgotten that I ever had a problem, thanks to the dedication of this man."  - Marie                             

"I want to thank you again for the great vein surgery you did for me. My daughter (a nurse) calls it a miracle. My leg looks good and feels great and no more swelling. Thank you again."  - Don
