"Dr. Stone has been wonderful. I was very hesitant at first to see a man but he put me completely at ease. I was able to speak to him about my problem with leakage. He discussed several options and gave me choices which I loved. Eventually I decided on surgery. The surgery went well and I finally have my life back again."
