My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I became an internist to fulfill my goal of providing the best overall care. I believe in treating my patients as I would my family. As an MDVIP-affiliated primary care physician, I am able to develop personalized healthcare plans for all of my patients. We focus on wellness and prevention and effectively manage acute and chronic conditions. The close relationships I am able to develop with my patients fosters open communication in an unrushed environment, which is imperative to providing the comprehensive care you deserve.

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 and weight loss and nutritional counseling.

I continue to offer care in the office, hospital and at home when appropriate. My personalized healthcare practice, sometimes referred to as a concierge 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.

I had to go to the ER recently for a bleeding issue, My wife called Dr Downing to inform him of my going to the ER. As I was waiting to be seen by the ER doctor, Dr Downing came to the ER to see how I was doing. It was very comforting to see and talk to him. To me that was above and beyond my expectations. I had only recently become a patient of Dr Downing. Thank you Dr Downing for… See more

When visiting Dr. Downing, it is more like a personal friend. He makes you feel very comfortable and never seems rushed. That is next to impossible to find with most other doctors/offices, etc.

He is a first-rate Doctor and a fine human being..

from David in MD February 13, 2015 for Michael J. Downing, MD

Since I've been with Dr. Downing he has been spot on with his recommendations for care and treatment of all ailments that both my wife and I have had. He is very personable, easy to talk to, and listens to what we have to say. We both have complete trust in his judgement in treating any problems we have. As far as I'm concerned, you can't ask for anything better than that.… See more

Before I started going to Dr. Downing I hadn't been to a primary care physician fir 15 years. I like Dr. Downing's approach and have been seeing him regularly.

from David in MD February 23, 2014 for Michael J. Downing, MD

My wife and I both received this email, so I will respond for both of us.
We have been patients of Dr. Downing since he opened his practice here in Glen Burnie, Md several years ago. Our previous doctor had retired and recommended that we try Dr. Downing. What we found was a doctor who seemed to genuinely care about his patients, was easy to talk to, and who would take the time to… See more

from Paul in MD February 22, 2014 for Michael J. Downing, MD

Doctor Downing has and always will be one of the best Doctors that my Husband and I have had. He makes going to the office a pleasant experience always. We feel like he takes as much time as needed to talk to us and reassure us of our health and or a problem. We were glad that Dr. Downing joined MDVIP because it has made his life less stressed. We will always think very highly of Dr. Downing… See more

from Barbara in MD February 20, 2014 for Michael J. Downing, MD

Dr. Downing has been our family physician for many year prior to his joining MDVIP. He is such a caring and trusted member in our lives that I think we would be lost without him. With the changes that are coming to healthcare with the Afordable Care Act, it is nice to know that we will have him on our side as we navigate our health into retirement. He is a master diagnostician, with a… See more

from Terry in MD February 12, 2014 for Michael J. Downing, MD

Dr. Downing always has a smile on his face and is so encouraging. He listens and you can tell that he truly cares. I had a storm of medical problems recently and he answered all of my after hour calls, some at very early morning hours and worked hard to get me through it. I really appreciate him and am very grateful to have him as my doctor.

from Lonnie in MD February 11, 2014 for Michael J. Downing, MD

Finally--a doctor who looks at the whole situation instead of reading a few lab numbers and reaching for the Rx pad. I really appreciate being able to talk and not feel rushed. It is nice to have a doctor who cares and isn't so rushed or burdened that I'm just one more appointment--I am a person--thank you for that, Dr. Downing.

from Rick in MD February 7, 2014 for Michael J. Downing, MD

My doctor has made a difference in our lives by discovering an 8 cm tumor (stag three cancer) in my spouses chest to begin radiation and chemo.
