Dr Fierstein has been my cardiologist going on 16 years or more and I would not see anybody else outside of his practice. He has a great bedside manner and is very caring . I live 50 minutes his office and still will not change to a cadiologist closer to where I live; Because to me Dr.Fierstein is too good and I am very happy to stay with him.

I have a history of heart disease. I have had a triple by pass and alot of stents. On Wednesday I saw Dr Fierstein at Jeans Hospital. I was getting shortness of breath and pain in chest and shoulder And BP was 201 over 92 .They ran a stress test on me. Hours later Dr Fierstein came in my room and very rudely told me that I shouldn't run to hospital everytime I have chest pains and he left.Didnt even give me the chance to say anything . Even the patient in the next bed couldn't believe how rude
