Mom says: I liked the doctor and the way he handled things. I liked the way he did the job. I didn’t feel nervous.
Extremely satisfied in every respect.
I appreciated his thoroughness and time in looking at my feet. The whole online appt and text reminders worked well. I was taken in very quickly to see the Dr. Two different sources, a friend and Fleet Feet "recommended" Dr. Firestone and I will do the same.
I am very happy with this practice. They return phone calls, get you into appointments in a timely manner and the doctor and all staff are very professional and very caring. I'm happy to my feet in their hands!
