Dr. Downey is amazing! He tells you exactly what's going on & doesn't try to manipulate decisions you need to make. He is helpful, patient, listens to & answers questions. He is very knowledgable. My daughter was complicated & he knew it right away. He truly gave my daughter specific & individualized care rather than trying to group her into a box diagnosis. I am grateful for Dr. Downey and wouldn't let any other surgeon at Primary Children's touch any of my children. Only Dr. Downey for us!
