Dr. Firestone is in San Mateo, CA. He's brilliant, hardworking, well educated, highly professional and experienced in legal work, psychology and more. He's well published, fast, totally supportive, does what he says, and he's all there for you. He also has a terrific and supportive staff, and a comfortable office with parking and easy access. I feel very lucky that he accepted me as a client.

×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.
