Dr. Downey is the plastic surgeon for my wife, who had a bilateral mastectomy about 4 months ago. What he has done with reconstruction is beyond any expectations. Even more important, Dr. Donwey makes time to answer all questions that come up and is obviously dedicated to making sure his patients understand the challenges and providing them with outstanding support. As a couple, we can't say enough positive about the level of professionalism and the common sense approach to working with his patients. He is a rare find.

This review is based on the phone interaction that I had with his front desk staff. I had been referred by my Dermatologist to another physician for a Moh's procedure, and they had given me Dr. Downeys office number by mistake. The gentleman who answered the phone was rude and condescending. When told him the name of the doctor I had been referred to, his response was "Who?" When I asked if he had a contact number, he told me that I should Google it. Total fail for a first impression.

I interviewed several plastic surgeons before deciding on Dr. Downey. My goal was to have my neck lifted and strengthened to remove the waddle that had appeared, but to be left with a natural look. The other doctors suggested adding other procedures which I did not want. Dr. Downey got it! He is conservative and a perfectionist. How he explained the surgery and his technique was like listening to an artist. And he is always reachable, kind and exceedingly intelligent.
