Patient Survey Reviews

  1. I recommend D.C. Foot and Ankle Specialists

  2. Dr. Firestone fully explained many details about my torn tendon and [bunion], both on my right foot. His explanation of the dangers of operating on the [bunion] when there is arthritis in the big toe was eye-opening because no other doctor, including the orthopedic foot surgeon, had ever educated me about this situation. Dr. Firestone also went the extra step by ordering an x-ray and doing a sonogram while explaining to me what he was seeing. He also described options for both the right foot and the probable toenail fungus on two toes on my left foot. In addition, he recommended that I see a different type of doctor who may have a non-surgical solution to the torn tendon. I very much appreciate the thorough examination that Dr. Firestone did.

  3. Dr. Firestone is a fabulous physician. Takes the time to listen thoroughly and then provides great layman's terms explanations. When a diagnosis is not cut and dry, he is persistent to determine the problem and appropriate treatment plan.

  4. Always wonderful service, thank you!

  5. Dr. Firestone has always been able to address my problem and give me an answer.

  6. Dr. [Firestone] really took the time to diagnose my issue starting with the worst case scenario and working up to his diagnosis. I also appreciated him vocalizing his thought process so I could follow along with him on the diagnosing journey which allowed me to better understand my issue.

  7. Dr. Firestone was extremely kind, providing helpful explanations and laying out options in both a logical and clear manner. I had a very positive experience.

  8. Dr. Firestone showed excellent listening and diagnostic skills..He made useful suggestions to help me manage my problem.

  9. Dr. Firestone is the best!

  10. I hadn't been to see Dr. Firestone in three years, but he remembered me and my issues with my feet and so that was nice.

  11. Lee is awesome in every way.

  12. I went to five physicians before I found Dr. Firestone. He fixed my foot when the others hadn't been able to help me. Of course, I think he's a genius!!

  13. It would be helpful if there was a way for the front desk to notify patients (by a phone call or text) if the doctor is running late. We recently had a positive experience with this with another doctor's office, and the heads-up to arrive even 15 minutes later was much appreciated.

  14. staff and doctor are wonderful people, friendly, warm, helpful

  15. Doctor told me about a possible serious medical issue that can be managed through preventive steps. This was very helpful, and a very positive experience.

  16. I appreciated how carefully Dr. Firestone listened to me and how well he was able to explain the problem and my treatment options. He also called me back so I could ask follow-up questions by phone a couple days later.

  17. Dr. Firestone is amazing! So knowledgeable and thoughtful about my foot issues and needs, and patient in answering all of my questions. Also, the 3-4 times I have seen him, he has always been on time which is very different from other podiatrists I have seen. Wish I had come to him way sooner. He has finally figured out what is really going on with my feet. The support staff are extremely helpful as well.

  18. I really appreciate Dr Firestone and the attention he has given me this year since I had so many issues arise after bunion surgery. I just wish I had more time with him to determine solutions to my ongoing problems.

  19. Dr. Firestone is a wonderful doctor. His bedside manner is top notch.

  20. Dr. Firestone is thoughtful, very skilled, and personable. He inspires a lot of confidence.
