Dr. Lester Scott Stoney's Ratings
Dr. Stoney somehow prescribes crazy, irresponsible amounts of opiates and is somehow judgmental towards his patients about it, all at the same time! It's quite a talent I have never seen in a doctor who supposedly cares about people's pain. Another ironic thing is that he has autographed pictures (thanking him for being so wonderful) of celebrities to be well known pill addicts all over his walls! Melanie Griffith to name one. He also has a few pictures of himself with Bill Clinton, who is at least a foot taller than Dr. Stoney. Hilarious. Dr. Stoney also claimed to be injecting me with Botox in my neck that my insurance was paying thousands of dollars for, but whatever he was injecting was certainly NOT Botox because when I actually had Botox injected by a reputable doctor, who showed me the Botox label, I turned out to be horribly allergic to Botox. This man is so incredibly unscrupulous, I can't believe he still has his medical license.

I agree! This guy was cold as ice. I have never been treated so poorly as I have by Dr. Scott Stoney. He refused to explain the procedure or why he was treating me with shots to my spine. I was skeptical when he didn't even go over my xrays. He just told me to lye down on my stomach did the shots and walked out of the room without a word. I'm here to bash the treatment After my 3rd appointment the pain was gone but if you want empathy or a doctor with bed side manors go somewhere else.

It is hard to believe that this doctor is rated a 5. My experience with him was a nightmare.This doctor is irresponsible, uncaring and narcissistic.

Dr. Stoney is compassionate and really listens to your problems. He also does an excellent job of helping mitigate the pain - I am now able to work a 40 hour aweek job where 3 years ago there was no way I could have handled it.

He was more interested in pushing drugs than fixing my pain issues. After he berated me in his office, I have returned.

This doctor is wonderful. He was able to control the pain that my son had after a fall. Surgeons wanted to operate but Dr. Stoney was able to get my son back to work after a rotator cuff injury and back disc hernation. Dr. Stoney really has a gift. My son avoided surgery and he is back to work.

I'm a throat cancer patient that has had numerous tongue resections and a radical neck dissection. Needless to say, pain has been a constant for the last 5 yrs. Dr Stoney has worked with me for years to keep my pain in check while minimizing my concerns of physical addiction. He's truly an artist when it comes to pain management!!

This Physician is wonderful. I had gone to many therapist and doctors. I had even tried acupuncture but the pain was so severe I thought about surgery. I had a surgery date scheduled even but then I had an appointment with Dr. Stoney. I was so glad I did because by the time my surgery time came around I was pain free. I did not have to go to surgery. It was a miracle. I was free of pain. I can not thank Dr. Stoney enough from the bottom of my heart. I am healed and I have been pain free since working with Dr. Stoney as my physician. After being with so many therapists and doctors of course I was skeptical but that fear was allayed by Dr. Stoney's confidence in his ability to treat me. It was apparent after only one visit with Dr. Stoney my pain dropped immediately. I am so grateful. Now i can return to a life without pain, no longer feeling the stabbing and sharp shooting pains that kept me awake at night, no longer crying from the pain. Thank you again Dr. Stoney

I owe my quality of life to Dr. Stoney. He is vigalent at keeping my chronic pain from a rare auto immune disease under control. His knowledge and persistence at finding the perfect combination of treatment has given me back my quality of life and I am so thankful. I am able to get out more and enjoy my life where as chronic pain kept me bed ridden or with use of wheelchair. I also find great comfort in the way he is over seeing my treatment closely due to the fact that some medications are quite strong. He closely watches to make sure I am comfortable and not over medicated which is of great comfort to me. He is very knowledge on how to best treat pain and takes the time to explain everything and make sure you understand. I am never rushed and he always takes the time to answer all my questions. Also I love that he is always on time. It is very rare that he is off schedule and I love the dependability of his office and that I will be in and out in no time. I highly recommend Dr. Stoney
