Picked him after considering three different doctors and a lot of research. Everything he said turned out to be correct about my surgery. I felt good about the decision then, and still do now that it's over.

Today was a great experience with Dr Downs and his staff. I am very pleased with my surgery and the approach Dr Down made. to resolve my knee issues. Thank you to him for all the time he spent with me.
in Hendersonville, TN |
Had a total knee replacement on my left knee. Was a patient of Dr Downs and his staff for years leading up to the final decision to replace the knee joint. He helped for years to control the pain and function of the knee until the absolute last minute and then performed a perfect surgery with a great result. This was my best experience with any doctor up to now

After having a nasty fall at work, I selected Dr. Downs from the panel of physicians presented by the Work Comp case worker. I can tell you that Dr. Downs was friendly, informative and the treatment he prescribed was exactly what was need for my particular injury. He went the extra mile in appealing two refusals from work comp for treatment he deemed necessary, and eventually they agreed to the treatment. I would highly recommend him.

Terrible experience: Visited Dr. Downs’s office after hyper-extending my knee. For starters they insisted on getting an X-Ray, even after I questioned the tech and she acknowledged that it was not needed. Then when in the room I was only seen by his PA, who only collaborated that they could not tell anything from the X-Ray and I needed to get a MRI. At no point did I see Dr. Downs until he caught me at the door to say thank you (and I'm guessing to be able to charge me for his time).

I have known Dr Downs for a little over 5 years now, and I find him be always friendly and easy to talk to. Dr Downs did a total knee replacement on 8-29-2016, and I can walk now without any pain. I did not know how bad my knee was until Dr Downs fixed it, it is great now. His staff are the best people you would ever meet. I really like seeing all of them when I go to his office. He is a really good doctor and surgeon. I have great respect for him. Thank you for my life back.

Earlier this year on 1/1/2016, I was involved in a life threatening car accident. My foot and shoulder required some extensive time and care to heal. I was blessed both by surviving and by the excellent medical care, surgery and positive demeanor of Dr. Downs. I would very much like to recommend him to you for your orthopedic needs. Five stars to Dr. Downs! Thanks Doc, E. Ross White

Major surgery from tibia plateau fracture and fibula break. The surgery and results have been very good. Four months after surgery, could not be any better. Did not meet Dr Downs until 5 minutes before surgery. Had reservations about him due to some reviews, found out the bad reviews were not experienced in my case. Would use him again.

Loved having Dr. Downs take care of me. My knee is feeling much better now.

Oustanding physician So nice and kind!
in Antioch, TN |
Dr. Downs does not follow up with his patients for return office vists after performing surgery. I have only seen him twice since my surgery in November 2015. His physician assistant sees his patients and is not able to answer necessary questions. He doesn't make regular visits to inpatients while in the hospital. His physician assistant does that as well. I would not recommend him to anyone needing ortho surgery.

Outstanding physician in every way. Best orthopaedic doctor in town!!!
