Saw the doctor for chronic sinusitis and chronic sinus pain and pressure when laying find to try to sleep. Rushed my visit Reffered me to a partner regarding possible surgery for a deviated septum . The new doctor said I am not a candidate for surgery so I went back to Dr Downey who told me to call next time I had a sinus infection so she can evaluate md better- when I called I couldn't get an appointment for over 2 weeks So I had no choice and saw my internist for an antibiotic. I still kept appointment with Dr Downey who seemed at a loss in treating me first because my infection was better and she had no solution for my chronic stuffed nose at night when sleeping. She gave me a prescription for an allergy medicine and when I called back a week later saying I am not better and actually feeling worse Norma her nurse called me back to say she has nothing else to treat me with and told me to see another doctor! I am so beyond shocked by her uncaring attitude!
Dr. Downey is friendly and patient. She has taken as much time as was needed to address my concerns. She also make it fun for kids and my son doesnt have anxiety when he goes there and loves to pick a toy out of the chest. I value and trust her professional opinion. He approach is thorough and logical.
