Dr. Downey missed the nodule
Easy Appointment
Friendly Staff
Fair and Accurate Diagnosis
Spends Time with Patients
Appropriate Follow-up
April 2011, Dr. Downey practiced in Olathe,Kansas and operated to remove a nodule from my right lower lobe of my lung and declared it benign. He had to know he did not get it because of follow up chest trays but did not even suggest follow up visits.. Over five years later, doctors at Mayo Clinic discovered that the nodule had never been removed. On December 12, 2016, a Stage 1A adenocarcinoma was successfully removed after checking lymph nodes and airways. We were very fortunate to catch what Dr. Downey missed before it was metastasized.

Uncaring doctor
My mother had bypass surgery by Dr. Downey. We had minimal interaction with him. He seems is so disconnect with patients and family. We felt him being very uncaring, unavailable, emotionally not involved. She had some complications, spent some time in ICU and he was just unavailable to take care of her. Awful experience.
