[...] Dr. Firestone is very committed to making the best fit [of orthotics] possible.
Dr. Firestone is a caring, gentle, communicative, respectful doctor. He has the inclination to explain fully a procedure on the phone and, again, in the office. A wonderful manner.
Dr. Firestone is the best
Lee is fantastic and I am lucky to have him as a medical professional in my life.
I was referred by my physical therapist to Dr. Firestone to confirm her sense of the problem I was having, and make sure there was nothing else going on. Dr. Firestone confirmed the diagnosis through xrays and ultrasound, talked me through my options, and did the initial "shockwave" treatment. Very pleased with my experience, and highly recommend this practice.
I've seen Dr. Firestone before this visit. He's always addressed my concerns professionally, shares with me what he is about to do, explains everything that happens during the visit, explains medical issues in a way that is understandable to the lay person.
Your willingness to follow up with a cortisone shot, if not improved, was appreciated.
Dr Firestone always explains everything in clear language. I always leave feeling as though I have all my questions answered and in a way that I can understand.
Dr. Firestone went above and beyond to help me address my issues. I really appreciate all his help!
Staff was FABULOUS It's a big WOW!
Dr. Firestone put me completely at ease, examined my feet thoroughly as he provided routine care (corn removal, nail cutting) and explained and described his observations as he went along. He also asked good questions about my medical history generally, not restricted to podiatry. He has recommended custom orthotics, a recommendation I intend to follow very soon. Just at the moment I have a full plate of other medical issues and need to take my time with those.
