 |  Total Knee Replacement  |  show details
by Myra Anderson on Dec 8th, 2013

Dr. Downs tried everything possible before we went to having to have a total knee replacement. I ended up having my Left done Aug, 4th within 6 weeks I was doing great. then Oct. 14th had to have the right one done for it went out on me. By Dec. 4th I was able to be dancing again. with some pain but nothing like it was before surgery. I would not go to any other doctor except Dr, Downs. He checked on me two or three times while I was in the hospital then I went to Rehab within 29 days for first one and 34 for second I feel that between him and my therapist at life care Center of Hickory Woods I would not be were I am at today. That is back enjoying dancing again. Thank you.

I have been very pleased with the results of my shoulder surgery. Dr Downs is a caring, attentive physician who has always taken the time needed to understand my concerns and answer any questions. I will say that at times the wait to get in to see him was a bit long..the wait was well worth it for the care received. I highly recommend him!

I had the pleasure of being treated by Dr. Downs and his staff. WOW. I cannot say enough about the high level of care AND caring I received from Dr. Downs. He is a talented surgeon who also happens to have great bedside manner! I have never had a Dr. spend as much time answering my questions like Dr. Downs did during my visits. You just don' t find that kind of physician much anymore. I cannot thank him and his office staff enough!!! I will refer anyone I know to him who might need Ortho. care.

After surgery you don't see him. You see his PA. Concerns about post-op problems are blown-off. After PT was denied "he" supposedly was to file appeal on my behalf. After 3 wks of no action "he" said I could just do it at home-never mind PT hadn't even gotten to the point of teaching me meaningful and necessary strength exercises. When I went to follow-up appt. I finally saw him,not the PA. He didn't even know my PT had been denied. After 2 months of waiting I finally got the PT started again! Truly patient negligence. He's great before surgery, but afterwards, he moves on to the next big paycheck (surgery) and can't be bothered with the recovery end. Big big disappointment! I would NEVER have let him do surgery had I known this would happen!!!
