Doesn't take the time to find out what is really wrong with you. Schedules as many people as he can possibly fit in one day and runs them through as quick as possible.

Referred by another orthopedic doctor in same practice. Hard to schedule procedure, rude scheduler. Would never use Dr Downey again, the procedure is very rushed.

Dr. Downey has changed over the years. His professionalism has changed dramatically. Be careful, the level of service and trust are very discouraging. So sad, he used to be the best doctor for epidural pain injections.

Be careful of having block in the office. They have one scheduled every 15 minutes. Practically push you out the front door. RUSH, RUSH time to make $$$$$$$$$$$$.

Epidural was a breeze and in office procedure while under anesthesia even, avoiding a high co-pay. Nurse was awesome with needles, I didn't feel a thing. Clean, professional, treats you like a person and not cattle. Very positive & helpful.

The only issue I had with Dr. Downey was that he prescribed Ultram as a pain reliever/anti-inflammatory. It's an opiod that is known to have a possible side effect of seizures. I have epilepsy and this medicine caused some minor (petit mal) seizures. Otherwise Dr. Downey is extremely professional and even called in some specialists to fit me with just the right type of back brace. He'll continue to be my Orthopedist from now on.
