Dr downey cured my tinnitus by doing an inovative procedure to my ear drum and process to calm my inner ear nerve.

Dr Downey is at the highest level that a doctor can be..
New York, NY |
Great! She asked first what I wanted and how she could help.Also there was very little waiting time no more than 15 minutes.
in Hackettstown, NJ |
I thought she was outstanding! She was my company doctor when I was on disability and insisted that I take more time to recuperate before returning to work, as my PCP had been pushing. I did as she instructed and am glad that I did.
