Dr Downs is an excellent surgant. He did a knee replacement on both my knees. He and his staff gave me excellent care during my recovery. I can do any things I want to now with out pain, that is a life changer! I would recommend him to anyone needing knee surgery.

I have had knee surgery performed by Dr Downs and I was extremely happy with the results, follow up and the entire process. If I had need for his services in the future, Brad would be the Dr that I would use.

Brandon consulted with an ER physician via phone to diagnose my torn pectoral muscle. Surgery was scheduled and completed shortly thereafter. After physical therapy, I was back in the gym with no issues to date.
