Dr. Downs came highly recommended by my ENT. And I was not disappointed at all! I can't begin to tell you about the dreads I had before my surgery.. all for nothing.. The surgery went great!! I have not had any bleeding, pain etc.. and I feel so much better being able to breathe!! Not to mention the excitement I have about the look of my new nose ( when the swelling subsides). Everyone was wonderful in the OR they all came to see me before surgery and introduced themselves and Dr. Downs was present several times.. made me very comfortable.
