My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
My affiliation with MDVIP has helped me practice internal medicine the way I was trained and allows me the time to develop educational programs for my patients, deliver prompt care and expand my services in many other areas, including preventive medicine, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, weight loss and nutritional counseling. I also offer conveniences, like same- or next-day appointments that start on time, which may be found in concierge medicine practices.
I continue to offer care in the office, hospital and at home when appropriate. My personalized healthcare practice serves the greater Baltimore, Maryland area and Anne Arundel County, including Glen Burnie, Pasadena, Millersville, Severna Park, Annapolis, Severn, Linthicum Heights, Arnold and Crofton.
I am affiliated with Baltimore Washington Medical Center as an attending physician.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Downing
Doctor Downing has provided high quality and comprehensive medical and wellness care for my spouse and me. He diagnosed and treated several chronic conditions (Sleep Apnea, Chronic Sinusitis, High Cholesterol) which significantly improved my quality of life. I appreciate his science-based emphasis on wellness, including the seminars, walking program and comprehensive annual physical exam. I… See more
I've been suffering from a chronic illness for years and have gone from one doctor to the next, hoping to find a doctor who would actually listen and work with me to help me get well, instead of one that automatically prescribes more unnecessary medication to mask the real problem, and then dismisses my symptoms. Over the years, I have lost hope in finding such a doctor, until I started… See more
I just joined MDVIP with Dr. Downing. It is so nice to know that he will always be available for questions and appointments when I need them. He always spends time and doesnt make me feel rushed.
Dr. Downing is the only doctor with whom I have felt comfortable having an open and frank discussion. His guidance has at all times been to channel me in the right direction and his quickness to respond to my concerns has been superb.
I have had a rough couple of years with multiple back surgeries and a hip replacement. Throughout it all Dr. Downing has been encouraging, caring and supportive. He did not perform these surgeries but he showed such interest in my recovery you would have thought he did. Now as I am dealing with knee issues, Dr. Downing is by my side every step of the way (pun intended) :-) Never have I had so… See more
Dr. Downing has been very understanding and helpful with my Diabetes. His explanation of how it affects my overall health and working with me to improve my condition has been fantastic. Walks with the Doc helped to get to know him on a person rather than just as a doctor.
Dr. Downing - Mike to me - has been taking care of me for nearly 10 years. Besides being the nicest man, he also is a great physician and has improved my overall health immensely. He is inspiring, caring and non-judgmental. I consider him my friend. We used to coach soccer together, and we keep up with each other's families. I can discuss anything with him, and he is knowledgeable, does… See more
Dr. Downing has been my primary care doctor since he took over my retired doctor's practice. He became my husband's doctor on MDVIP and I went elsewhere. I decided to come back when I realized the poor care I was receiving and disrespect for my time.
Dr. Michael Downing is a role model for other primary care doctors. He is thoughtful, knowledgeable and caring. He takes his… See more
I feel so fortunate to have Dr. Downing as my dr. He has shown himself over and over to be a dr who cares and really listens. What a pleasure to go to see him and his staff, even when you're sick. He follows through and takes good care of his patients. Many thanks to him!!!! Terry M.
