Once you are home and need advice about anything regarading your procedure, Dr. Downers PAs shine brightly. All you need to do is call the main OSS phone # and follow the prompts. Very user friendly. Shortly after you call one of the PAs will call you. You will find it very comforting to talk to Agnes, Brian, Remmy, or Adam. There callback times are quick. I do not think I waited more than 10 minutes for a callback. Wonderful when it is 9 PM and you need advice. Cant say enough. We all know that there is nothing more important than a quick response from a Doctor when you are hurting. This service and these PAs deliver. Awesome was my comment after the 1st call, and they never let me down. Thanks

My experience with Dr. Downer was anything but a downer. LOL

Dr. Downer is a specialist. How does he do it? Volume. He has had a lot of practice. What makes him so good? He has the skills, but also he has the equipment--special tables to support easing the patient into the position that ensures a good outcome. And an expert staff to support him.

Excellent Surgeon

He is a good surgeon but seems hurried when you are in his office, he gets to the point and then is ready to move on.

Didn't go over the MRI or X-Ray results with me. Didn't go over the printout of the results stating he didn't need to see that. Didn't talk about the cyst or the torn labrum that I have just stating that i have arthritis and he would give me an injection after I told him that I had an injection in the hip with no help. Felt very rushed in the office.

Dr. Downer is a genius! He preformed my hip replacement surgery and the result has given me a new lease on life. I will be forever grateful for his skill and his understanding of how my hip problem affected my entire life. I recommend him to everyone I meet who has a hip problem.
