Mar 20, 2019
I have referred *Dr. Downey to all my friends. One (that I know of) has scheduled an appointment.
Mar 20, 2019
Excellent experience & will continue to recommend to my friends. Give my experience w/ other doctor offices in this area, the service by nurse, physician, & staff was ABOVE expectations. Thank you!
Mar 19, 2019
my understanding is that Dr Downey was the only Doctor in that day, so I understand the wait.
Mar 18, 2019
I am only guessing at the time between arrival and being seen, and between time I entered the exam room and the time Dr. Downey walked in. It was NOT very long - much less than I've ever experienced in any physician's office for any reason.
Mar 11, 2019
this was my first time seeing Dr. Downy and I really liked her. I used to see Dr Norton and was very sad she left but am happy with Dr Downy.
Jan 31, 2019
Overall great experience. I didn't feel they were rushing through the appointment

I recommended this Dr to someone else the same day as my appt!
Oct 31, 2018
very impressed with the entire operation.
Oct 22, 2018
I had explained my situation to the nurse prior to making the appointment, when I saw the doctor, although I understand that she is not my doctor, I would have appreciated if the doctor had read over my chart to have an idea about my history and be familiar with the meds and side effects as that was the main reason why I had cone in for a consult. Initially, I was told I needed an ultrasound however, I was sent home without having one done, I was told that since Dr. Downey wasn't my doctor, she wants me to wait 3 weeks until my doctor can be there.

love riverside! was recommending to friends as I was walking out the door
Oct 9, 2018
Dr Csakany had been my care provider for many years so this was my first visit with Dr Downey. I have absolutely nothing negative to say in any way about Dr Downey or my visit. I have already recommended her to some of my friends. She was compassionate and caring but also knowledgeable and professional. I like her as a doctor and most importantly to me, as a person. I won't hesitate to contact the center with any questions or concerns. Keep up the good work!
Oct 6, 2018
Very long wait to see dr.

excellent first day impression
Aug 22, 2018
first visit after moving to the area. definitely will continue with Dr Downey. excellent care.
Aug 19, 2018
She has been very reassuring to me, even when i was irrationally upset about things beyond control. She explains things very well and seems to take a genuine concern in me as a patient. I even told my husband as i left i want her to deliver our child, shes been the most helpful physician thus far. LOVE her.
Aug 19, 2018
last time i was informed at 4 pm the day before my appointment (that i couldn't eat before) that it needed to be moved back two hours. I understand she has issues come up that she has to take care of but i feel like the person handling scheduling should have just moved me back one slot instead of that far back. i had very little time to notify my employer of the changes so it effects more than just me.
Aug 19, 2018
i didn't have any problems to speak of, but i've always had a pleasant experience from each nurse that brought me back.
Aug 19, 2018
Most of these doctors have been very helpful and i would recommend, all except one lady.
