Timothy F.

On a Sunday evening in March I suffered an injury to one of my feet that resulted in lacerations of nerve, tendon, and muscle, as well as damage to bone. After more than six hours in an ER, I had to wake up early Monday morning and figure out how to locate an orthopedic surgeon who would be able to repair the damage.

I woke up on Monday morning not even sure where to start, given that I had never needed to see an orthopedic surgeon in my life. That stressful morning, I called TCO and Dr. Downes made time in her schedule to evaluate me the very same day. Not only was she able to evaluate me the same day, she was also able to schedule my surgery the very next day.

From that very first appointment through my final visit this week, Dr. Downes has been the most friendly and most helpful doctor I have ever met in my life. Dr. Downes always made sure I knew that I could call her or her assistant at any time with any questions whatsoever. My recovery went more quickly than I ever could have imagined, and it is largely thanks to the care and concern that Dr. Downes has shown me throughout the process.

If you ever need an orthopedist for foot or ankle problems, I would highly recommend Dr. Downes without hesitation.
