Second time doing a pelvic ultrasound to see why I keep having these symptoms and Dr. Downey came into the exam room and held my hand. For someone who has no family here (other than husband and kids) this was an above and beyond show of care from her. She was patient, she listened with genuine intent, she expressed the same amount of concern as I did. A wonderful and genuinely caring Dr!

In past contacts with your facility I have run the gamut from fair to poor in my experience with your practitioners. Dr Downey was such a vast improvement that I have not stopped singing her praises since I left her office. She is intelligent, articulate, compassionate, and a pleasure to meet and work with. Please do whatever is necessary to keep her.

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
