Dr. Downey was actually recommended to me by my OBGYN, and my children have been his patients since birth- over 8 years. I appreciate his level of experience and medical knowledge. He spends time with my children and speaks to them directly. He is the only doctor that has ever called my home after a "sick" visit to check up on my child.

Dr. Downey has a great vibe! He shares his knowledge in very specific yet understandable terms, so I've always felt comfortable with my options and any problems my children have faced. Whether you are a bit of a worrier or a professional at parenting through a child with health problems, Dr. Downey will give you confidence in your child's health plan and their ability to rebound from illness. His nurse hotline has been a life saver as well, and all the staff are friendly and accommodating.

We interviewed 3 pediatricians before deciding Dr Downey is our man. Going on 13 years with our boys and he lets us back each year. By far, the best reputation in town. Just ask any nurse you know in town! Personable, tries to take time with each boy and makes a point of remembering details about each of them. We're trying to raise them to 18 before he retires. The best!
He is great with my daughter and very thorough even called me back in the evening to check on her! He feels like family
