Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Downey "As a gynecologic oncologist I believe in personal care and attention to every patient. For that reason, we do not have a "phone tree" answering system, but personally answer every telephone call. Every nurse in our office is Oncology Certified and I am a Principal Investigator for the National Cancer Institute. The highest quality patient care is the goal of everyone in our office."
