My surgery experience was so much better than I could have imagined. There were a few reasons for my exceptional experience that I would like to share. First, because my surgery was somewhat of an unplanned event, I had not met Dr. Stone prior to my surgery. In fact, I had been a patient of his colleague. Because the surgeon I had been seeing was out for family reasons, Dr. Stone chose to come to the hospital that day just to perform my surgery. My pain level was increasing quite quickly, so it was a significant blessing that he was willing to operate on me during his day-off. Dr. Stone asked our permission to pray with our family and pastor prior to my surgery, which we welcomed with open arms. My recovery has been much less painful and quicker than I had been told. All in all, I cannot more highly recommend Dr. Stone to you as you consider choosing a skilled, compassionate, and humble surgeon.
