About Dr. Firestone, Jr.

I specialize in Pediatrics. I became a healthcare provider because I love helping parents and children better understand each other and their medical issues. My patients can count on me to provide extraordinary care because I love to teach and coach my patients and hope to inspire them to be more confident than when they came in.

My little something extra

I play the trumpet, which I started in high school. Also, I love New Orleans and the amazing spirit of the people. Nothing gets them down!
