Competent, clear, foot and ankle surgeon who listens and spends time with you.
As with other DPMs in this practice, a resident or fellow did my foot surgery ( never saw Dr. M in operatingg room). I did not know this was legal or ethical, esp. with no attending present. It has been 8 years and two more surgeries( orthopedic doc) and I can barely walk. I needed a neuroma removed; he decided, " since neuromas don't pay well" to correct two hammertoes too, which I hadn't noticed and didn't bother me. I ended up with one huge sausage toe, and one floppy toe. Couldn't correct.
I would NOT recommend Dr. Downey. I drove one and a half hours each way to see Dr. Downey as he was referred to me by my local podiatrist. He made recommendations and I have tried to follow up with him via his office staff but no matter how many times I have called his office (15 times) to date I have not received a call back. I have left numerous messages requesting a copy of my medical records but have not received any response from this office. Total neglect of a patient needing care!
He's the best!! I had a Bunion done by Dr. Downey. I expected to have so much pain, but, I was shocked! I was not in bad pain and I was in sneakers in about two 1/2 weeks and back to work. Not that I missed work ?? I'm going back to him for my other bunion soon. Can't say enough about the Doc! If you want a great doctor, go to this one, I can't even see a scar!!
