Dr. Firestone is the best. Gives detailed and explicit explanations which is so apprecited and NEVER makes you feel as though he is in a rush. I had not been to see him for a few years but was quickly reminded how much I like this doctor. He is attentive and is extremely knowledgeable. You cant ask for more in a physician.

Dr. Firestone is great. He’s got a great “bed side manner”.
I saw Dr. Firestone for a treatment of chronic ingrown toenails, and he was an excellent doctor! The procedure was quick and as painless as it could be. Will be recommending this practice to friends in the future! Thank you!
Very concerned, helpful, and looking out for my best interests.
Dr. Firestone was super amazing! Very personable, kind, and helpful. He eased all my fears and made the experience wonderful
Dr. Firestone took the time to explain what needed to be done to my foot and listened to my concerns. One week before I was scheduled for surgery, I had second thoughts. I left a message with the administrative staff. Dr. Firestone called me in the evening when he was finished seeing his [patients] to talk through my concerns. Then, he personally fit me into his schedule the next day to re-examine my foot to make sure we were doing the right thing. He was incredibly patient with me.
He is amazing!
Dr. Firestone is not only an excellent doctor, but also a splendid person; talking with him is such a pleasure that I actually look forward to my appointments!
I have been a patient of Dr. Firestone for more than fifteen (15) years, and I am well pleased with him and his staff. I would highly recommend him to others!
It's always a comfort to have Dr. Firestone's experienced and caring advice.
Dr. FIrestone, as always, was helpful, reassuring, and gave me excellent care. And his personality is patient-friendly. [...]
I really appreciate Dr. Firestone's ability to listen to my medical concern. In turn, I appreciate that he proposed various forms of treatment and thoroughly explain each possible treatment's side effects, benefits, and possible outcome rate. With this information in hand, I felt equipped to make the best possible medical treatment decision. Also, kudos to Dr. Firestone for being an expert with sticking my foot with needles! I'm grateful it was pretty quick and painless.
Dr. Firestone balances efficiency with not feeling rushed. He explains his diagnosis simply but without talking down to the patient. I appreciate the fact that I was able to have immediate x-rays which he interpreted for me and followed up with an ultrasound which reinforced my confidence in his findings.
