Verified Patient Reviews
Very personable and accommodating. The wait time was a bit long and I did not benefit from submitting my insurance through Zocdoc. I will continue to visit Dr Downie.
He ordered CT scans on my sinuses but then his office never sent the follow up paperwork to my insurance or the imaging center. I showed up for two separate ct scans and had to leave because items were still pending or awaiting verification or no one was in the office to assist in approval. This problem hurts a great deal and is getting worse by the day as I wait for this office to organize my paperwork. Hope they do it soon! Would love it if I could get this very necessary procedure completed!
The office staff are not treated well. No conclusion for my issue and I did not understand why I saw the doctor. Finally, I disappointed.
Dr. Downie was professional, thorough, and took the time to answer all of my questions. He was highly knowledgeable about the meds I was taking and felt he validated my situation. Highly recommend.
He could diagnose the root cause which the other doc whom I was referred to before did not.I would recommend this doctor
Great doctor! Explained everything thoroughly and even held a mirror so I could see him check my nose and throat. Only downside was the wait time.
This was a really good way to see a doctor on short notice. Filling out the paperwork took the longest. Otherwise, I did not wait more than five minutes. The office staff is friendly and professional. Dr. Downie was thorough and professional. I will go back to see Dr. Downie if I have any other ENT issues.
Dr. Downie was great. I felt very comfortable with him, and appreciated that he reviewed the paperwork I filled out prior to the visit and asked some follow up questions based on what I had indicated. I feel like he was thorough in examining and asking about my symptoms. My wait time was relatively short, especially considering I had to fill out the new patient paperwork, and my overall time with the doctor and his staff felt adequate to fully discuss my concerns. Overall I was very satisfied with the appointment.
Great experience. Very knowledgeable.
Dr. Downie was fantastic and I would Highly recommend!
I'm new to the area and I'm extremely relieved and happy to have found Dr. Downie to help me resolve my sinus and allergy issues. Very nice and helpful staff as well.
recommend doc not sure of nurse that came in first, did not even lookat whom she was talking to until after 4th question never a hey how are you, never even looked to see age of daughter while looking at me like I was crazy cause I was letting her answer questions (she is 17), not have a great day , just short and rude the doctor was great
This was my first time seeing Dr. Downie, and I was very nervous. He had me laughing, and feeling comfortable in minutes. He explained everything to me in detail and in terms I could easily understand. I wish he was available to be my primary care physician because I felt incredibly comfortable and confident immediately.
Dr. Downie was VERY professional and knowledgeable. Honestly, I wish he was my GP!!
During my visit, Dr. Downie asked me several questions without elaborating and quickly diagnosed me and had me out the door. The only thing he prescribed was nose spray. A week later I had to go see another physician and was treated for bronchitis. I'm sure my bronchitis had not developed when I had gone to see Dr. Downie, but I wish he had been more patient to listen to all of my issues, and maybe referred me to an allergist when I complained about my sinus problems. He did mention my septum was crooked but didn't explain next steps/or actions to take. Very nice doc but not the greatest experience for me.
He was awesome!! The nicest doctor I've met in a while. He explains everything in detail. You leave there knowing answers to your problem.I would recommend him to anyone!!
My visit was great. Dr. Downie was very nice and easy to talk to about what was going on with me. He is so my new ENT doctor. : ) i would recommend him to my family and friends. : )
He was personable, professional and intelligent. He explained the procedure of checking my sinuses very well and put me at ease. I am a wimp when it comes to having anything done to me so I was relieved when it was gentle and painless. He is actually the best physician I have ever been to. I definitely recommend him. The office staff was nice and not uptight.
Dr. Downie was an attentive listener and had insight to my sinus issues that had never been fully addressed before.
Dr. Downie was great! He spent a fair amount of time with me and explained his treatment recommendation in a clear manner.
Dr. Joshua is a very professional doctor, he was responsible for my daughter's ear tube surgery. No complaints at all, rightly recommended!
After the PA did the hearing test, Dr. Downie spent enough time asking questions to help determine that the source of my complaint was not in his field - he showed concern and insight and recommended next steps. I'd recommend him.
He seemed very cold and condescending about my lifestyle choices, even though I try to take care of myself and be healthy. He was more eager to talk than listen, and I did not feel like an individual. I will wait to see if his his treatment and diagnosis are accurate before considering returning.
Read others reviews and decided to venture an hour away to be seen by this physician. He did have a great bed-side manner and was very nice and informative. However, can't be sure to say that he solved my issue/concern. Have had troubles for several months and he was my 3rd opinion. Felt that I made it clear that I did not want to try another particular medication that all 3 doctors (mine main one included) seem to want to "Push" on me. Have tried this medication and it has not seemed to help much. Dr. Downie once again recommended that I give it another try but in a different "brand". I have yet to try it but feel all it's going to be is the same medication only under a different name. Really felt he took the time to listen to me and my symptoms, until a certain panel of questions were asked. All of a sudden the visit became more of a Psych eval over the stress of my situation and the anxiety it causes. Of course I have anxiety, b/c after 4 doctors and the SAME medication that is NOT helping, I'm still no closer to feeling any better at this point. Would I recommend him? Yes for basic issues/concerns. But, in my instance, it was just another co-pay and another med of the same category. (Bottom line: I'm not even sure he gave me a "complete diagnosis" of my situation?, He wouldn't even give me a CT of my sinuses when I requested which could have shown us a little more in depth detail?)...I've had MRI's done, but he even stated that those only showed so much and a CT would probably be better..... I may end up trying the medication just to see if it DOES do the job, but if the first two of the same category didn't?? Well, it just leaves me a little skeptical. But I don't need any more negativity of this situation, so to stay positive, I'll just say "you never know"~
Dr. Downie and his staff answered all of my questions and were very informative.
Dr. Downie is an excellent, highly knowledgeable ENT physician. Highly recommended!
Candid and to the point. Dr. Downie wasted no time in trying to get to the root of my problem. Nurses and office staff were great, too.
Really liked the doctor and all the staff that I interacted with. Doc came across knowledgeableand professional while still being personable. Excellent "bedside manner". Would definitely recommend. Staff was awesome. Everyone was professional but also friendly. Made me feel welcome and valued not like I was
Dr. Downie is is highly competent, friendly and ready to provide care with the end goal of healing for life in mind not just a quick fix or a prescription.
Felt rushed through appt after waiting so long for Doctor. I felt like I had a lot of unanswered questions after appt.
I have seen Dr. Downie several times for an on-going issue he is treating me for. He always listens to everything I have to say and is extremely patient with all the questions I have. VIsits are never rushed. Go see him!
I'm extremely happy with my visit! Office staff is gracious, kind, helpful, and professional. Dr. Downie was great in getting to the cause of my issue(s) and helping me to begin a course to remedy them. He is my ENT!
I have suffered with sinus problems and laryngitis for many years. Little did I know that the feeling I have to constantly clear my throat or cough isn't caused by my sinuses. I actually have reflux laryngitis which is easy to treat. Dr. Downie explained what was causing my problem, gave me a prescription for Nexium, informed me of foods to remove/decrease in my diet and other tips. I was very pleased with how thorough he was and his bedside manner.
Dr Downie was recommended by a work colleague. I very much appreciated his professionalism and easy going efficiency. As well, the assistant in the room with us was friendly, first rate, and a real asset to the practice. The only negative thing I have to say about the visit is that GPS is very unclear about the location of the office building - so I drove by it the first time - and there is a parking fee.
Awesome! Wonderful doctor, experienced, knowledgeable, always listens, never have I felt rushed & concerned with your overall health!
It is always a pleasure to see Dr. Downie. He is very accurate with his diagnosis and is very personable and professional. I have recommended him to others who have also been very pleased with him.
Dr Downie is a great doctor. This was the second time we have used him.. I would recommend him highly.
I was scared planning on tonsillectomy. I went to see a couple of doctors. I'm so glad we finally found Dr Joshua Downie. He was great and the operation went well. Highly recommend!
Very good and tallented doc.please go...
He was delightful and his staff were all fun and personable as well!
I would definitely recommend Dr. Downie. The entire staff was very nice and I was in and out quickly, but did not feel rushed.
Dr. Downie took time explain the procedure for me. He is very nice and informative. I'm looking forward to have surgery with him next month.
He was polite and seemed to be very knowledgeable but felt very rushed.:-(
Went for a second opinion and got a better understanding of my diagnosis. I feel more comfortable having more information.
Professional.... Overall it was a good experience.
He's extremely knowledgable and informed me of so much that no other specialist had. I had been to 3 different ENT's that didnt help explain what and why my sinuses were like they were. He took the time to tell me the what's and why's and gave me solutions!
Great experience start to finish. Highly recommend him and his office.
It was a nice visit. Doctor Joshua was very friendly and nice and told me what the problem is and took care of it. I will recommend him to anyone that is looking for a good ENT doctor. Also members of his staff was also nice and attended to me nicely.
Dr. Downie was ver quick and professional and did a wondeful job diagnosing my infection and getting me the proper medication to combat the issue.
I thought he was excellent! His front office staff on the other hand was not very pleasant. I didn't appreciate the check out later acting like she didn't like her job. Other than that, I am going back!
Very good doctor. Listened and was professional. The office staff was friendly and efficient. Would highly recommend.
Excellent. But please make a correction: Sandra ANTUNES instead of NASCIMENTO Kindly also change the surname of the exams requested for sleep apnea test
My typical experience with doctors have been that a triangle exists comprised of (1) brilliance (2) arrogance and (3) impatience where you get to pick any two. This is not the case with Dr. Downie. He was candid (but pleasant), thorough and as evidenced from even a very short conversation is notably articulate and knowledgeable in his field. This doctor isn't just someone I'd recommend a stranger go see, this doctor is someone I've recommended my own wife go see! If you need an ENT and are local to this practice, look no further. This is where you need to be.
Very professional and thorough
Dr. Downie is by far the best ENT I have seen! He listens and understand all the problems I seem to have! He's very professional yet soothing at the same time. He performed my sinus surgery in she beginning of the year and continually checks on me. I would greatly recommend Dr. Downie to my friends and family.
Dr. Downie changed my life. Before my sinus surgery I could not run, hike or be outdoors as much as I wanted to. Now, after the care and compassion he has shown through everything, I can now to the things I love to do. He is the only ENT I would trust and recommend to my friends and family. He is AMAZING!!!
I was completely at ease te day of my surgery knowing he was the one performing it! He is outstanding and I would only trust him to my friends, family and my needs from now on! He's an excellent surgeon!!!
Great visit Downie is personable and professional.

Dr. Downie was knowledgeable of the subject matter and tried to find the root cause of my issues. Dr. Downie readily stated which areas were not his expertise and quickly recommended a colleague that could help with those.
