Gertrude O. Stone, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As the daughter of a general surgeon I wanted to be a doctor since I was a young girl. I have felt honored to have cared for people for over 25 years. I feel it is very important for the doctor to listen to the patient and together work on a plan to help them be the healthiest they can be. I feel by listening to the patient I am able to care for their physical condition as well as be a coach for the all the other parts of life that can affect our health. My goal is to provide the best care possible to all of my patients. I treat my patients as though they are a part of my family. I send them to specialists that I would go to or send my own family to. Together we will work to get you to the best health possible.
