Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Stone "When you see me as a patient, my first goal is to get as much information about your symptoms or condition. To do this I will ask a lot of questions and try to narrow down the possible causes to explain the symptoms. I tend to be direct and cut to the chase, valuing your time and trying to be as efficient as possible. I welcome questions and readily admit when our medical approach may have limitations. Rather than order multiple tests and hoping that something shows up, it is better to do a careful evaluation and direct the work-up to confirm a clinical suspicion. This tends to make testing more worthwhile and reliable.

I place emphasis on treatments that have published evidence to support their use, but there is also an art to medicine and sometimes answers do not come easily. I value any input or feedback from patients. When I make a recommendation, you can be confident that I am putting your best interest first, avoiding unnecessary or low-yield testing."

Dr. Stone Says:

Communication is the key to any relationship, including the doctor-patient relationship. My promise to you is that I will do my best to help you, make a diagnosis, treat you and relieve symptoms. If you are not satisfied with my approach or my opinion, it is ok to tell me that. After many years of practicing medicine, I have learned that sometimes patients are reluctant to share their feelings, but your feedback is extremely important.

Great bedside manner and took the time to sit with me and ask me questions about my symptoms. Every gastro doctor I've been to has just diagnosed me with having acid reflux and recommended surgery.
