×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. Marvin Firestone, MD?
I was a patient of Dr. Firestone when he was practicing in Boulder, CO I was very young and it was a difficult time for me, my first time seeking psychological help. Dr. Firestone appeared helpful and concerned, but failed to maintain a good rapport and was easily frustrated by my shyness and difficulty in expressing myself. He also took a call from my father (who was paying for my visits, but I was over 18 ) and violated my trust by discussing w/Dad family dynamics & private information of me.
