Dr. Ronald K Downs has the following 2 specialties

  • Plastic Surgery

    A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
    Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
    The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

  • Surgery of the Hand

    Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
    Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.

He didn't return calls, some addressing increased pain during recovery, tried canceling appointment on the day of and only a couple hours before scheduled appointment due to his billing department not having updated payments made so their computer showed a past due account balance and their policy is past due balance due in full to be seen, strong possibility that negligence during surgery may be the cause of a complication in my recovery (seeking 2nd opinion and evaluation), during last appointment I felt my concerns were being ignored and when I asked him why he was dismissing what I wanted to discuss he became rude and used a loud tone stating if I didn't like the way my case was being handled, he didnt need me and I could go elsewhere. I left his office in tears and refuse to go back, unless it's confirmed that my complications are a result of a mistake during surgery

He is a dishonest Doctor. Choose a quality Doctor with integrity not him.

Pretty much leads you to believe you're going to get the results you're after, then when you don't, he just replies with things like " wow look at the difference " or sorry but it's just you" or we took a lot off". What he fails to realize when he makes these comments is, we are still the same people we were before and if he said he could do what we ask, then do it. If he can't, then just be honest and say that he can't. I need another surgery to get the outcome I was promised from him. Very expensive and I would not recommend him to anyone.
