I had a triple bypass surgery that Dr. Downey performed on me on April 22, 2020. I was home and walking around the block in 5 days. I was walking 1 mile after 10 days post surgery. He is an excellent surgeon and his team is the best. I am one year out and hiking 5 miles 3 times a week and playing golf twice a week.

I would recommend Dr. Downey without qualification. His skill as a surgeon, his unwavering commitment to his art and to his patients, and his standing in the St. Luke's practice and in the halls of the CVICU assure that somebody under his care will receive truly exceptional care.
