my husband and I both see Doctor Downs as our primary care doctor can we drive about 45 minutes to see him since we moved out of the area. that should tell you how much we trust him and value him. He is a dedicated physician, funny, but serious about his expertise. We trust him and are very happy with the level of care we receive through him on various issues.

Competent in general medicine, above average in orthopedics. Not the best listener, and resists referrals to specialists.

Arrived for an appointment 15 min early. Had to clarify some information with our insurance provider. I told the receptionist (Margarita) that I was given an expected wait time of 22 minutes and asked her to proceed with the appointment and I would pay out of pocket if need be. She told me to just wait on hold with insurance until I got an answer. I eventually sorted everything out and had my paperwork faxed to the office. At that point I was told I had missed my appointment...
