Dr. Edward T Downing Jr has the following 3 specialties
- Allergy & Immunology
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- Angiographic Visualization
- Tuberculosis (TB)
- Nasal Allergy (Rhinitis)
- Hay Fever (Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis)
- Chest Infection

Dr. Downing reviewed the results of an overnight sleep lab study for my Doc. His report was filled with errors. It appeared as though some of the information presented was from the last person the "form letter" had been filled out for. After two phone calls and five written requests, never even heard a peep from his office. I gave up. Once he was paid, forget about it, he has no interest in his service whatsoever.
Unexpectedly; I suffered from a rare lung issue that almost took my life. I was intibated and put into an iduced coma for two weeks. When I left the hospital; I was told by a physician that what I had was rare and that I would need to be responsible and be active in finding proper health care. (due to the fact that I had something that most of the drs in the area have never treated.) Still, I was hoping that my first appointment with Dr Downing would prove to be informational and inspiring. Instead it was one of fear and frustration & my last! My questions of how this occured or how long could I expect recovery to take; or could this horrible event reoccur; were met with sarcasism; coldness; and complete disregard for someone who had gone from being a young healthy person to walking with a walker & needing assistance in everyday life. How could a dr have such a HORRIBLE bed side manner? I immediately removed myself from being his patient. However; I'm still searching for a credible local pulmonologist that will assist me in my journey to good lung health...HELP.
I saw this Dr only once and he was so rude and insensitive I vowed to never go back. His bedside manner is very gruff and basically hes a jerk. After talking with him about how I lost my lung in a car accident his response was indifferent, uncaring and unprofessional.Dont waste your time unless you want a doctor who is rude and insensitive.
