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 well as everything I didn't know that I needed to know.
Super knowledgeable and thorough! Will absolutely see her again for future appts.

I usually dread going to appointments such as these. Dr. Laura Downing was very knowledgeable & took the time to answer my questions. She made the visit very comfortable and that is saying a lot because I'm generally pretty anxious. Highly recommended!
She was very kind and professional. I felt comfortable discussing all of my medical history and needs with her. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a female OBGYN in Austin.
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.

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!
Best experience I have ever had with an OBGYN. Have recommended her to all my friends, Dr. Downing was the absolute best - so informative, kind and worked efficiently. Loved her!
Dr. Downing was great! She was very helpful and answered every question I had. She made me feel comfortable and heard. I would highly recommend seeing her!
Very sweet and understanding. Made me super comfortable, wouldn't go anywhere else.
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 as if 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.
Dr. Downing was really informative and super sweet. Answered a lot of my questions and made me feel at ease! Highly highly recommend!

Everybody in the office was super friendly and very personable! Dr. Downing does the absolute best when treating her patients and made me feel at ease throughout my visit. Best gyno visit to date!
I doubt I would ever find a nicer and more professional obgyn. I came in while in an incredible amount of pain and the staff was exceptionally understanding. The office is a bit tricky to find but it's a nice environment and Dr. Downing is clearly passionate about what she does.
Very informative and answered questions I had as well as asked me questions that helped her give me advice.
Dr. Downing was so patient and easy to talk to. I've never been that comfortable at a gyno visit.
Very short wait time and everyone at the office was very friendly.
She's great! I had a delicate problem and she performed a procedure with grace! Very easy to talk to! She also looks 16 in he profile photo but in person she looks appropriately aged!
