She is a great Doctor

My daughter has seen her for 3 years, she is very knowledgeable and professional. I really like her. Office wait can be rough but, think I would rather wait to get the attention I need then be moved quickly and not something missed.

She made a very appaling bigoted comment toward me.

I was in for allergy testing and I might have MS so I asked her if allergy shots would affect that. She said no but in her explanation she added that she didn't treat HIV in her office?? I'm g-a-y and DO NOT have HIV so this really struck me in a negative way. I intend to report her to the proper authorities. I did not expect bigotry from a black Doctor. I am very upset by the experience. I am seeking another allergist and I advise anyone who is against bigotry to do the same.

Best Doctor!!

I recently saw Dr. Downes and I was excited to finally see a Dr. that actually cared about her patients. She was very professional and worked with me to determine a plan that would help my son get better. She was not pushy on what I should do, instead she explained everything thoroughly with me so that I was able to look at all my options. She is one of the few Doctors who sees her patients as people in need and not just a paycheck. I will continue to recommend her to anyone in need.

Won't go back.

Will never go back. Waited 90 minutes for my young child to be seen for an update visit and no skin test. Said would never do a blood test. Wasted my time, co-pay, and insurance gets billed. 5 minute visit, doctor seemed defensive and angry. Not helpful.
