Dr Downs, PA Kendra and staff are the most accommodating, friendly and professional healthcare providers that I have come across. I owe my newly found great quality of life to these people. I had a complete left knee replacement 10/2016 and I couldn't be more happier. From the initial consultation & diagnosis, through the actual surgery and comprehensive rehab, they were always there to assist me. They gave it to me straight, no surprises. Shout out to Sophia & Terry for always smiling. Luv ya.

Dr. David Downs and staff gave me my life back. I needed both hips replaced and had no information about the procedure or how my life would be after. I had been treated rudely by other surgeons, they told me I was too old and too over weight. Not Dr. Downs and his P.A. Kendra, they listened, explained, made sure everything was understood. Best of all they moved forward with surgery plans, as I lost weight and prepared for surgery. My outcome was excellent and I now have my life, love this team!!

I had my ACL, MCL, and PCL reconstruction surgery done by Dr. David Downs. Surgery went great with no complications. He's very informative and friendly during the entire process.

I would highly recommend Dr Downs and have to several of my friends. I have had 2 knee replacement surgery's and the with in last 10 days. I feel great and trust him for all my orthopedic needs.

Removed me from the medical group because I requested information on steps they would take to alleviate a patients burden with setting appointments dealing with specialists. Overall doctor was lazy refused to commit to multiple tasks involving different sections of the body. Would never recommend this office to anyone. The front desk women sounds like a long time smoker. It's extremely unappealing. If you want one star service come here.

I just called last week to make an appointment for follow up on a broken ankle that happened while out of town. I left a message with the appointment scheduler but never received a return call. After reading more reviews on-line it looks like I'm not the only one that has had this problem with this office. I have used this office many times in the last 30 years but I think this is last straw.

Dr. Downs is a very serious doctor with a stern(ish) demeanor, but after a few visits he loosened up with me (and I normally require a relaxed and caring bedside manner!) He is an excellent surgeon. He performed my shoulder surgery, which was supposed to take months to recover from, and I recovered in just two weeks. He did an amazing job. He is a very skilled, talented surgeon, whom I highly recommend.

Cannot get a return phone call, left several messages, very frustrated.
