I love Dr. Stone! She shows great concern for my well being as a person, as well as, as a patient dealing with many autoimmune disorders. I'm always included in making decisions in my care and treatments. I couldn't imagine having to go to another physician. She is most definitely worth a 4 hour drive to be a patient of hers.

Dr Stone is really an amazing provider! She is very compassionate, very thorough, and very effective. Under her care I have maintained a stable non-flare state, limiting additional joint damage. I appreciate that she does a very thorough tactile exam of each joint, this is so important! And in her mind she is comparing what she is seeing and feeling, and what I am experiencing, with what she saw and felt at my last visit. This is the the human factor that is so critical to successful treatment! I consider myself to be very fortunate to have her care as my rheumatologist!
