  13. The materials I brought from treatments at an out of town ER and a local MRI place were deficient.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
