Submit Your Testimonial About the Experience How was your overall experience?: Poor Fair Good Very Good Excellent Comments: I was referred to Dr. Downey by a friend who is also a podiatrist (retired). I am very pleased with the outcome of my surgery. Dr. Downey removed 2 lipomas from deep inside my heel which were causing me great pain for 9 months. His staff, especially Rachel always returned phone calls and answered my post-op questions. I am 10 weeks post surgery and healing well w/ home exercises and physical therapy.
