Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Firestone "Since establishing the Center in September of 2006, my goal has been to provide patients with first-rate state-of-the-art hip and knee replacement surgical care in a setting that's second to none. My office staff constantly gets rave reviews from patients for their availability, efficiency and friendliness. In an impersonal medical world of automated phones, paperwork and loss of identity we try to be an exception. I encourage you to visit my website at FirestoneMD.com"
