Worst allergist on the planet. Dr Firschein had me pay a boatload of money out of pocket directly to him for a non effective non FDA approved treatment,when my insurance company was willing to pay for the cure the whole time. Dr Firschein is the very definition of a total hack

Dr. Firschein is the best doctor I have ever met. He is caring, intelligent, and more observant than most doctors. He really takes the time to listen and answer your questions. He identified a problem I have that no one else picked up on, and it has changed my life. He is a godsend. I feel very blessed to have him as my doctor.

Well, where do I begin. I was bitten by a tick that possibly infected me where I can't eat red meat. It has taken 4 weeks to set up an appointment. I called the business office to see if I would be able to pay my Co-Pay ($50.00) two days after the appointment. I called 5 days before this appointment to see if they would work with me. Was told "absolutely NOT" if you cant pay when you come. we cant see you!!!! Corporation over patient care.

This doctor is probably the best doctor I have ever come into contact with. The entire office is probably the best office I've ever come into contact with. A few of the words I would use to describe Dr. Firschein would be: highly intelligent, straight to the point, warm, caring, assertive, and determined. Thank you Dr. Firschein for taking such excellent care of our daughter today.
