Review of Dr. Peterson II

- in Kent, WA |

Dr. Peterson is a surgeon that actually listens to his patients. He just doesn't rely on xrays and MRI results only but he listens to the patient describe their quality of life due to their condition. I had partial knee replacement done at their surgical center in Walingford. Was impressed with the surgical team. They took very good care of me and my husband was extremely impressed with their surgical unit. My recovery is going well and I'm already walking with slight use of a cane 2 weeks post op. I saw 4 different surgeons before I went for a second opinion with Dr. Peterson. I was so impressed by Dr. Peterson, I chose him to do my surgery over the other surgeons.

Dr. Downer has replaced both of my hips. He is professional, easy to talk to and the best surgeon in Washington doing the anterior procedure. Highly recommended.

Review of Dr. Peterson II

Dr. Peterson was excellent for my spouse's total knee replacement in 2015, but also for my knee replacement in June 2019. He listens to questions and concerns giving great advice and choices. He is non-judgmental. He was an easy choice for my knee workup and open to alternatives before my knee replacement surgery. He does surgery Swedish-Ballard campus which had great nursing care and follow through. My postop course recovery been steady and successful. I recommend Dr. Peterson and his team.

Review of Dr. Downer

- in Spokane, WA |

Dr. Downer has performed hip repairs on both of my hips for hip impingement and labral tears within ten years of each other. I couldn't find someone locally who had the skill of Dr. Downer so I traveled back to Seattle to have Dr. Downer complete my second hip procedure. He and the staff did a tremendous job on both procedures and he was always a pleasure to speak with. His easy going nature and explanations put me at ease before and after the procedures. I highly recommend Dr. Downer.

Hi Doc, It was a pleasure to have such a "good visit" with a doctor. You were present, friendly, precise and explained my situation to me patiently. It does puzzle me that some duffus diagnosed me with arthritis five years ago when there was none......ho-hum. I will follow up with Dr. Petersen. Thank you for the recommendation. I have been reading "How Healing Works" by Wayne Jonas MD. It's enlightening. Check it out. Have a memorable Thanksgiving! My best, Wendlyn Ehrman

Review of Dr. Downer


I have nothing but good things to say about my experience with Dr. Downer and his staff. As nervous as I was about having my hip replaced, I never was nervous about my choice in having Dr. Downer as my surgeon. Six weeks out, I couldn't be happier.

The best doctor EVER. My brother recommended Dr. Peterson to me (he’s had four surgeries with him and my sister in law has had one with him as well) and I’m sure glad he. He is AMAZING.

Review of Dr. Downer

-Renton |

It was a long road with Dr. Downer. I had a car accident and finding a doctor willing to see me was hard, but after hearing about Dr. Downer being a miracle worker for people that have hip issues and are young, I decided I had to have him as my doctor. From day one he had nothing but amazing bedside manner. Though you can tell he is incredibly skilled at what he does, he never makes you feel stupid for asking questions and takes his time to explain anything and everything.

Review of Dr. Downer

-Kent |

Dr. Downer performed hip arthroscopy surgery to repair my torn labrum and bone impingement. From the first appointment, Dr. Downer's bedside manner and knowledge was reassuring. He is very talented and knowledgeable and made me feel at ease. Post-surgery his calm demeanor helped ease my anxiety about my recovery. I would highly recommend him!

Review of Dr. Downer

-Everett, WA |

I received a total hip replacement from Dr. Downer and could not be more satisfied with the entire process. From the scheduling staff, to the other docs on the day of surgery, to Dr. Downer's expertise, I highly recommend anyone seeking such a procedure go see Dr. Downer and team. When it is time for the replacement of the other hip, I will definitely go with Dr. Downer. What a relief not to be in pain anymore. Thank you Dr. Downer!!
