What People Say About Dr. Yelena Stone, MD

I have been seeing Dr. Stone for many years now. She is an excellent physician. It is imperative that one answers her questions to the best of their knowledge and offers her a defined medical history as needed. I do not think the negative feedback is necessary as physicians have guidelines to go by and can not order tests or drugs just because a patient asks for them. She has always been respectful to me and I would recommend her to any family member or other.

Didn’t listen to me, only had her own opinions. Rudely asked if I had swollen legs, I said no just fat and she just looked at me. Never will be seeing her again, very bad bedside manners.

Her bedside manner is horrible. First she criticized my decision to keep my maiden name. Then she refused to give me a Zika test even though I had visited TWO countries with Zika and am trying to get pregnant. THEN she misdiagnosed earwax for an ear infection, started me on heavy antibiotics (which led to a yeast infection) that I didn't need! Find another doctor!!

Went in for a very simple problem that she did nothing to help with- in fact she made it worse and made me go through extra tests that had nothing to do with my problem. I returned to the practice 2 days later and requested a different doctor, and he was able to solve my problem completely in about 2 minutes. If she couldn't solve something very simple, I would never return for anything remotely more serious.

Completely unprofessional and has no empathy for sick patients. she will charge you a co pay to fill out any paperwork then bill you another fee. My husband fell down the stairs hurting his back and all she said was to suck it up and lose some weight, maybe that would've made the fall less painful. This is a deplorable way to speak to anyone let alone someone in pain.

She misdiagnosed my father with arthritis when he had stage four cancer. She told him he didn?t have a rib fracture when he did. It wasn?t until I transferred him to another doctor that we realized he was on his way to having a cardiac arrest because of his low hemoglobin. This was in a course of 8 months. In and out of seeing her. I was diagnosed with Lyme disease @ a local hospital by 4 doctors who gave me doxycycline to which she laughed and told me to stop. YOU SHOULD ALWAYS FINISH AN AB!!!
