How likely are you to recommend Dr. Downing?
After suffering of a broken arm for 4 months from a fall in August 2019 that occurred at my work - which forced me to utilize doctors within the Worker Compensation network, I ended up being misdiagnosed by an incompetent doctor on my condition and what my treatment plan should be. I eventually was referred to Dr. Kristopher Downing. He immediately knew that my initial treatment of my broken arm was not proper and I was in desperate need of surgery. It took another 6 months of suffering working through the bureaucracy of Workers Compensation to get approval to switch to Dr. Downing. Finally, I had my surgery a month ago. The surgery was intense and it took 5.5 hours where 15 screws were inserted, a bone graph performed and implantation of a long metal rod. I am forever grateful for my Hero Dr. Downing’s expertise, his caring demeaner and indeed his God given surgical skills that has helped me recover without much pain. I must give a shout out to the others who assisted him.
