      Dr. Downie has really helped me over the last 2+ years.. He immediately started chemotherapy when he first saw me as a patient with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. His knowledge and quick action started me on the right path of treatment. He continues to see me and monitor the cancer status and other issues that come up. He recommends and works with other Specialty Doctors that are needed in my fight against cancer. He also sees my Husband for anemia and has helped him greatly. Dr. Downie is really an exceptional physician.

      Dr. Downie is very personable and down-to-earth. He's one of several oncologists I'm talking to and don't know whether he'll be my cancer doctor but he impressed me very favorably. His staff is excellent and courteous.

      I actually cried happy tears walking out to the car after seeing Dr Downie and visiting with Vivian and the other gal in the lab. You allowed me to accompany my wheelchair bound husband to his appointment and I felt so grateful for all of your kindnesses. Thank you so much

      I had a consult with Dr. Downie today. He was very considerate and I do not have to go back to him. He recommended I see a different specialist.

      In 2017 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. After a 11 month treatment, we felt I was as free of this Cancer as possible. In mid 2019, thanks to routine bloodwork, it was determined my cancer was paying me another visit in the form of Bone Cancer. I have been receiving treatment since August 2019 and my results so far have been very positive. As I told Dr. Downie in a recent visit "you and your team are the experts; i trust you with my life".

      I've been seeing Dr. Downie for 18 months for treatment for a rare cancer. He is caring, thoughtful, professional and just all-around one of best doctors I've ever known either as a patient or as a nurse. I highly recommend Dr. Downie.
