Dan Downey, MD, grew up in Tacoma, Washington. After gaining his Doctor of Medicine at the University of Washington, he completed a general surgery residency at Virginia Mason Hospital in Seattle. He then completed his training in plastic surgery and surgical oncology of the head and neck in Rochester, NY and Buffalo, NY respectively.
When Dr. Downey and his family returned to Seattle, he served as a plastic surgeon at Virginia Mason Medical Center, rising to the role of Section Head during his 16 years on their staff. He operated Downey Plastic Surgery in North Seattle for the next exciting 14 years. He is grateful for the privilege to be a plastic surgeon and to earn the trust of his patients and referring physicians.
Dr. Downey lives in North Seattle with his wife, a musician in the Seattle Symphony. They have two daughters. He likes photography, cooking, gardening and tennis.

Please contact your care center to prepare for your appointment.
As an established patient, we ask that you arrive in our office 10-15 minutes early for each appointment. We will need you to verify your address and insurance information and from time to time complete any necessary paperwork.
If you have insurance forms, such as disability, that require some portion of it be filled out by your physician and/or his signature, please bring them with you to your next appointment.
You will need to check in with the Front Desk at each visit so that we may verify that you have not had any changes since your last visit. i.e., address, phone, insurance changes etc.
The Physicians and Staff will do all that we can to stay on schedule. Unfortunately with our specialties, we have patients that come in for a regularly scheduled appointment, who have relapsed or have developed complications that require more of the physician’s time than we allowed for. We ask your patience if this should happen, as we know you would want the physician to spend the necessary time with you if this unfortunate occurrence should happen to you.
