Since this was my Medicare wellness appointment I thought it would have been with my PCP Dalia Mossad but it was not. Dr. Mossad. SheTold me the last time I saw her I would only see her once a year for my Medicare wellness appointment. Obviously all Dr. Mossads slots for appointments were already taken but my appointment with Allison Downing was just fine.

Allison Downing is not only thorough, gentle and respectful but she is genuinely a nice person who seems like she really cares. She's also one of the only providers that remembers me from the previous year. She reminds me of a small town caregiver of years ago. She is very easy to talk to, informative and let's me be a part of the decision making process which is so important to me as a retired nurse. I literally travel from North Carolina each year to see her she is that good!

Allison R Downing, APRN.CNP always provides the best care. She smiles a lot! Which is great. It makes me feel uncomfortable when a provider acts like they're uncomfortable around me because we're different. Allison R. Downing doesn't do that. I feel like she treats me the same as she treats everyone else. She is very kind, compassionate, relatable, respectful, and honest. I'm so glad that she chose to be a health care provider. I can tell that she enjoys her work because it's reflected in the care she gives me.
