Dr. Downing was the BEST orthopedic I ever knew, bar none! I was so very sad to hear about his passing just today when I called the office of OSSM to make another appointment there. The last time I saw Dr. Downing, was a couple of years ago and as usual, he was chipper and smiling and making me laugh. His medical expertise and ability to diagnose quickly and accurately recommending the right follow up treatment left me as a patient feeling very comfortable that I was in good hands. He talked about his sports and his sons with such pride and he knew how to relate to patients from all walks of life - young, old, male, female, he treated everyone with such care and respect. I was devastated to hear that he was sick and succumbed to cancer. Having lost my own Father to this horrible disease, I can only imagine what your family is coping with now. I send prayers and condolences to the family of such an outstanding physician. I read his obituary and saw that yesterday was his birthday.....I will keep him in my thoughts and prayers. With deepest sympathy, Kathy Hart - a former patient.

To the Downing family: I am so very sorry for your loss. Dr. Downing was, not only an intelligent, wonderful doctor, but also a kind human being. He always truly cared about his patients. He was so proud of his boys and spoke so highly of the love of his life, Karen. It is a loss to so many that such a wonderful human being was taken so young. Dr. Downing and all of you will always be in my prayers. He will be missed by many.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Downing Family. Dr. Downing was a remarkable man with such compassion ofr his patients. He operated on my husband (shoulder), my son (knee), my daughter (knee) and received my mom as a patient after emergency surgery when she broke her femur in Las Vegas. As the one "in the waiting room" he was always concise and accurate, yet so humane and considerate of my anxieties. He truly was the doctor and surgeon the rest of the medical community should be measured by...a wonderful man. He will be missed.
Deepest condolences, Laurie & Richard Sirois & family.

To the Downing family,

I was extremely saddened to hear about the passing of Dr. Downing. He was my doctor back in the early and late 90s when I suffered two major sport related injuries in high school and college. To me, to this day, when it comes to orthopedist,there is Doctor Downing, and then there is everyone else. Over the years, after having multiple surgeries for one thing or another, I always would measure each doc up to Dr. Downing--but none could match the type of person and orthopedist that he was. A few years ago, while visiting family down in CT. and channel flicking, I came across Dr. Downing doing an interview on Channel 12 at Cablevision in Norwalk. It was really great to see how well he was doing at the time. That was the last time I saw him, and the first time since 1998 when he reconstructed knee. My deepest condolences to the Downing family. Dr. Downing will undoubtedly be missed, but definitely not forgotten.
