Dr Downing has an excellent bedside manner and is very friendly. The receptionist (Andrea) was also very friendly. I was seen very quickly (just after filling out the paperwork.) The doctor and I had a short talk and then we didthe procedure (an endometrial biopsy.) The biopsy was painful, but I expected this and this is to blame on my thickened uterus. Dr Downing completed the biopsy as quickly and efficiently as possible, in my opinion. The entire appointment, including paperwork, a urine test, talking with the doctor, and the exit process took almost exactly one hour. All in all, I had a very positive experience (other than the pain) and I would definitely recommend Dr Downing from this experience.

Best Gynecologist I've ever seen - she was thorough and willing to take time to actually discuss my options and lifestyle. First time I've felt that I've been presented with a thorough explanation of everything I had questions about as wellas everything I didn't know that I needed to know.

I really loved my experience with Dr. Downing. As a new patient she really took the time to explore my family history, personal preference and situation. Dr. Downing was very informative about what test were normally covered by my insuranceand what to expect during billing. The office is very comfortable and clean! Overall I felt Dr. Downing really cared about my health now and also has a long term vision for my health care. I have no hesitation recommending her to my friends and family!

I was fifteen minutes late but they were able to adjust their appointments to fit me in. Nurses were friendly and brought over the documents I needed to sign to have my birth control ordered. At one point I felt asif I was getting quizzed on my knowledge of birth control and not really having a discussion. The dynamic of the conversation quickly changed after I presented my knowledge and preferences. The office is close to my work and has ample parking space.
