Dr. Downing's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Downing "I went to medical school at the University of Louisville, and was inducted into AOA Honor Medical Society as a Junior, and was President of the chapter my senior year. I interned at Parkland Hospital, Southwestern Medical School, Dallas, Texas, was a flight surgeon in the US Navy, then did my ophthalmology specialty training at the US Naval Hospital Philadelphia, Wills Eye Hospital, and the University of Pennsylvania. I am a Clinical Professor at Vanderbilt Eye Institute, and a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Louisville. I have taught at both institutions part time for many years, and have received multiple teaching awards from both residency programs. I go on international medical missions annually, mostly with Orbis International, the Flying Eye Hospital and have taught doctors surgical procedures in many developing countries, including China, India, Bangladesh, Lithuania and Peru."
This content was provided by Dr. Downing "As an ophthalmologist, I strive to provide caring, state of the art eye services. We try very hard to maintain a schedule to minimize your waiting time. Sitting in a doctor's waiting room for more than a few minutes is a waste of your time, and from experience, I know it becomes frustrating very quickly. I specialize in cataract surgery, including laser assisted cataract surgery, treat conditions such as glaucoma and diabetic problems, and provide general eye care."
