I showed up a little late to the appointment due to car troubles and the front office was extremely understanding. After completing my new patient paperwork, I was seen right away. Everyone I encountered was extremely professional. I neverfelt rushed, and everyone answered all of my questions appropriately. They were all extremely helpful people who really seemed to care about the well being of their patient!

Dr Downey is a very fine physician. He is thorough and listens to the patient, explaining everything about the immediate exam, along with all options if treatment is indicated. If you need to see an ENT, this is the doc to call on.

i have never been to an ENT as an adult. I think it must be a very difficult specialty. So much involved. Anyhow, my appt. was fast but very thorough. i had a hearing test. it was a very interesting andfascinating appt! Staff was so pleasant and actually said "nice meeting you" when i left. Very good experience.

Ultimately, he diagnosed the issue and was accurate very quickly. He showed some aggravation, but I wasn't sure who it was directed at, which is why I didn't rank his bedside manner higher
