After suffering from migraine headaches, Dr. Downs suggested we try something new. It was a surgery that involved scrapping a layer off of my nasal passages. (laymans poor definition). I spent overnight in the hospital. For a few weeks - I had some minor side effects as a result of the surgery. A miracle - for the first time in my life and for over a year now - absolutely no migraine headaches. From my perspecgtive - this has been an absolute miracle. Thank you Dr. Downss!!!

Dr. Downs is AWESOME. We like his style. When I go to the doctor, I want facts so I can make informed decisions. I don't want anything sugar coated because any doc that does that is doing you a disservice.

Dr. Downs did a Parotidectomy on me, I found his office staff kind and timely. Dr. Downs is to the point but listens to the patient concerns. He explains thoroughly and did a wonderful job on my surgery. I had a malignant tumor and he ressected it entirely while preserving my facial nerves. I was also a self-pay patient and he worked with me on that aspect as well. Would absolutely refer Dr. Downs for your ENT issues.

Doctor Downs saw me last minute when I was so sick and in pain I could not eat and had lost 10% of my body weight. He diagnosed the problem and worked with me to help me stay out of the ER by giving me the pain treatment necessary. He even handed out his personal cell phone in case I had an emergency. He was spot on and I was so happy to not spend 3 days in the ER on IV. I would highly recommend Dr. Downs. A very shape doctor who listens to his patients and works toward the best treatment
