Feb 6, 2020
I like Dr. Downey a lot. She listed to me and made some helpful suggestions with some issues I've been struggling with. Also Gave me some recommendations of a Dermatologist and Gastroenterologist. And did not hide the fact that scheduling can sometimes fall through the cracks between the different departments. To not be shy and call back if I had any issues with scheduling. Which I did.

This is my third visit to Dr. Downy. I have always been very satisfied and have recommended her to several of my friends without hesitation.

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.
