Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

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

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".
