Loved this experience. Came out knowing I would recommend Dr Firestone and his staff to colleagues and friends.
I feel lucky to have found Dr Firestone to treat me. He is a good listener, [is] great at explaining prognosis and treatments, and at no moment you feel the pressure to rush into a surgery or treatment. He makes sure to be available at all times before/post surgery. His medical team is also great, they work with [you] to understand how insurance will work for you. Their attention to details about everything is fantastic.
Dr. Firestone does an excellent job of explaining the medical and treatment issues to be addressed and in understandable, and when necessary, non-medical terminology. He puts the issues, options, and outcomes into proper perspective, and really helps to guide expectations to reality for both pre and post surgery. I’ve had two significant surgeries and his availability and support are really at the top of the scale. Dr. Firestone and his staff are REALLY GOOD and I highly recommend his organization.
I will be back for the sheer atmosphere & professionalism [rendered] by all. Dr. Firestone was very informative of my condition & waiting to hear back from him . If I lived in D.C. I would be a client. I may have to fly back for that to happen, it would be worth it
I have been dealing with foot problems for many years. Dr. Firestone was interested in my problems and truly wanted to solve them. I am pleased with my visit.
Dr Firestone is [one] of a kind! Fantastic Dr.!
Terrific visit as always with special thanks to Max for his infectious positive attitude and friendliness and professionalism.
Best appointment ever and best news ever! Such a great doctor. He knew the problem immediately and solved it while I have been dealing with the problem and being sent here and there for nearly two years.
Dr. Firestone is an incredible doctor, with the highly valuable combination of practice excellence and high level patient care. I have recommended him to a number of people. He’s a real gem!
100% pleased with Dr. Firestone & will recommend him to anyone needing excellent care.
I absolutely have nothing negative to say about the staff or doctors. Dr. Firestone fixed a bunion that had been severely messed up in a previous surgery by a different doctor. Now I have had hammer toes fixed. Everything went wonderfully and I couldn’t be happier!
Dr. Firestone is extremely attuned to the needs of his patients. It is a pleasure to interact with him.
Dr. Firestone is wonderful to work with because he explains options for treatment along w/risks for each. He takes into consideration how treatment might affect my racing & training schedule & generally takes a keen interest in helping with any issue that is affecting my athletic pursuits. His knowledge about the impacts on the body of running long distance and ability to provide advice regarding details such as shoe choice are invaluable.
Dr Firestone is caring and professional!
I look forward to improvement in my condition because I believe in the doctor's expertise.
Dr. Firestone and his staff are very professional and helpful. They provide complete explanations for procedures and answer all my questions clearly. [...]
[...] 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
