Dr. Stone treated me with macular degeneration. His immediate recognition and treatment prevented widespread vision loss. He set up a program that has maintained my level of vision. My quality of life has not declined as a result. I might also add that it was a very frightening time for me, and Dr. Stone took the time to ease my mind and help alleviate my concern. I am so thankful that I put my vision in his so very capable hands. Incidentally, his office staff is the best.

Excellent!! I needed emergency surgery for retinal repair and Dr Stone did it that night because he was going out of town the next day. He always explains things clearly and takes as much time as possible but he is extremely in high demand. I feel very fortunate that he is here in my locale.
