The Critical Importance of Primary Care

Primary Care is critical because it is a patient’s first or primary contact with the medical system. Dr. Downing has been a practicing Primary Care Physician for over 20 years.

Dr Downing had been with First Physician’s Group in Sarasota for over 11 years. Prior to that he had worked for three years in a “free clinic” providing Primary Care to the uninsured in Southern New Hampshire as a National Health Service Scholar.

The experience gained during those years has been invaluable in helping hone his diagnostic skills. Uncommon illnesses may present with common symptoms. Early diagnosis is critical. Experience matters.

What we offer

our patients

 

• Minimal waiting time

• Same day appointments for urgent care (30-60 minute visits)

• Comfortable, clean and professional office

• Friendly, professional staff

 

• Given the proximity of the office to the hospital, Dr Downing is often able to visit patients at least twice and more often three times per day. These visits are included in your annual fee.

• As part of your membership any visiting out of town guests who become ill will also be treated as a courtesy to our members.

Home visits when warranted are included

 

• As a courtesy a bill will be submitted to private insurance companies as there may be a refund for patients for using “out of network” providers.

• Dr. Downing has “opted out of Medicare” which means he doesn’t bill Medicare for his services. The annual fee covers his services. However, Dr. Downing remains a “Medicare ordering and referring Physician”, therefore all other services are covererd through Medicare insurance and secondary insurance.

• A reception area where will be no incidental contact with ill patients. There are separate rooms for adults, children and infants.

• A Comprehensive 2 hour annual physical exam, which focuses on your personal needs.

• If you require admission to Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Dr Downing will be your attending physician.
