I had the worst experience of my life with Dr. Downham. Was so rude and didn't listen to a word I said. Rushed me and my appt cause he didn't want to deal with it. Didn't change his attitude or anything after I told him he was rude. Reported him to the supervisor. My PCP did more for me than a specialist did. It's sad the absolute worst doctor I've ever come across in my life. DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR!!!!!!!!

Dr. Downham has been taking care of my skin cancer and eczema for many years now. This is a very personable doctor, easy to talk to, will discuss anything with you which is a good way to keep mind off of skin issues. He made a "smooth operator" out of me on my last visit 11/29/2016, lol. None of my issues have ever gotten serious, he keeps me in check and its always kinda fun. He truly seems to enjoy his work and doesn't look 73 years old.

Rude. Did not even examine my infections. Was totally impatient, was swearing & getting mad his pen wasn't working during my appt. Will not be going back. This guy is not a good doctor.
