Dr Downs is awesome. I had a brain tumor last year and although that care was provided at Pacific Neuroscience Institute (also Providence), he has kept tabs on me and helped me to make sure that all the endocrynology care I am receiving is working.

Dr. Downs is the best Dr. I ever saw. He is caring and he listens to me. I think he is an excellent Diagnostician. He runs all the right blood tests and makes the best referrals. I followed Dr. Downs from [...]. He is definitely worth the travel time and I am grateful he is my Dr. His Nurse and front office staff are wonderful. I can't say enough about my experiences with him. When I was Diagnosed with [...] he made me feel at ease and not afraid. Because he really listened, I think he already knew what was wrong and he ordered all the right blood work to confirm what he suspected. As usual, he was right. He has a great sense of humor and is always able to put me at ease, but don't let the laughter fool you.............he really does hear you and that makes him awesome in my book. Thank you Dr. Downs. I hope you never move too far away. I give this man and his staff a 10+. I hope you share this review with him so he knows how I feel............Sincerely, [...]

It was by chance that I received the appointment date with Dr. Downs online. I had looked earlier in the week and his next appointment was 2 weeks out. I was planning on going to an urgent care but decided to take one more look at his available appointments and one came up for the next day. This was just luck as usually you have to wait some time to see Dr. Downs who is a very nice doctor to deal with.
