Bad experience

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!

Stapendectormy surgery

Dr. Downey indicated that ear surgery would "significantly improve" my hearing. After surgery, I had no improvement whatsoever and no explanation why the surgery failed. The out-of-pocket expense was almost $2,000.
