WHAT PATIENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT DR. OWEN
“Is there an option for 10 stars? My wife and I just got out of the military and moved to the area and were excited and nervous to get pregnant. We had heard some stories about how difficult and scary this process could be. We went to the orientation that CCRM provides and immediately had a connection with Dr. Owen. Dr. Owen, and the entire staff at the facility, were class acts and the best at what they do. They set the bar for care and medical professionalism. They always made us feel comfortable and well informed. This location is very LGBTQ friendly, and my wife and I would recommend CCRM and Dr. Owen to anyone and everyone! We cannot explain how thankful and happy we have been with our experience. Thank you for this wonderful gift of life!”
“LGBTQ friendly. Dr. Owen was very helpful and answered all the questions we had. Amazing experience for such an intimate process. The entire staff was amazing and so kind to us and made us feel like they were just as invested in our experience. Thank you for everything! I recommend this place, the staff, and Dr. Owen for the DMV area. Thank you for the gift of life!”
“I can not say enough positive things about Dr. Owen and the entire staff at CCRM. Dr. Owen has made our entire journey so easy and enjoyable! My only regret is that we didn’t find her sooner and wasted so much time and money dealing with another local fertility clinic! Every step of the way Dr. Owen and her entire staff were there to offer THE BEST care and guidance. I think every doctor needs to step foot into her office and really take note how to treat patients. Unfortunately, I recently moved 1000 miles away, but we have decided we will be flying back to continue to be seen by Dr. Owen. (That’s how crazy good she is!) Pros: • Very Forward Thinking & Extremely Friendly • Highly Intelligent & will happily take the time to explain everything to you thoroughly so that you can understand! • Genuinely compassionate about you & your specific needs! • Gorgeous office with advanced technology! • Nicest, most friendliest staff I have ever met! Cons: NONE! – well except for the fact that there is only one of her!”
“Dr Owen has been a god sent blessing for us. I was so fortunate to have met Dr Owen and CCRM NOVA staff. We had to travel 2 hours each time to visit CCRM. They understood us so well that they actually never wasted a single appointment. The treatment options were very well explained, perfect guidance throughout the process and psychological support we received were the best I would say. Maureen was always on top of things and she explain all options perfectly. I will strongly recommend to any one who are facing infertility issues to come and consult with CCRM. CCRM made our dreams come true and today we are complete family because of them. I would like to thank each and everyone at CCRM NOVA location.”
