Wait was too long, they overbook and the people waiting looked like they were straight out of Walmart. HMO nightmare. No thanks
I went in for knee replacement consultation. Dr. Downs was very informative on pros and cons. Definitely provided me the information I was seeking.
Dr Downs was great. He explained everything to me. He did not rush my appointment. I left feeling very hopeful. I even referred him to my co-worker who was looking for an ortho doctor.
Very informative compared to my last orthopedic surgeon visit.
It was my fist visit and it went well
Dr Downs diagnosed my problem quickly and was honest and professional in his assessment. I highly recommend him.
Was my first time at the office. Dr. Downs was quick and resourceful... he knew what he was talking about. I was able to be in and out within an 1hr and that included doing x-rays and paper work!
