Ratings for Dr. Lester Scott Stoney
I feel very cheated by visiting this doctor over a 6 year period. He kept giving me injections of "pink stuff", telling me he was adjusting contents of it as months went by. Had to release him from all responsibity by signing a very scary release form. When his office was closed, and I went to another well-known pain Doctor, I was told I was taking so many drugs I probably should be dead. Over 50 mg of Fentanyl, Dilaudid, Zanaflex, Ambien-all at the same time. It scares me to think what could have happened. Avoid this guy totally. Also, he's a very strange fellow in all respects.
told me to find another Dr. when I told him I no longer wanted injections in my neck as they did not work. He would open a drawer in his exam room, take out a small vile, inject in my neck. I later saw he was billing medicare for Botox injections for me. Botox is refrigerated prior to injections, HE NEVER GAVE ME BOTOX! He billed Medicare for Botox! and he billed Medicare for visited me 7 times while in Hoag hospital, across from his office, and he came ONE TIME> Ego, pictures all over his reception of him with movie stars, Gorbachov, etc.
Dr Stoney's care of me gave me mobility and fluid movement back as a mechanic and welder its nice to be able to move under in and around equipment without pain being so great one has to stop and walk away, There are always gluttons in anything humans do.. Dr Stoney advised me akwSys about the importance of not using other chemicals including abd especially alcohol with pain medication. He twisted no ones arm to take too much. 10 tablets are too much if not taken as prescribed. Typical Anericsn a Witch Hubting tactics., Some other doctor was jealous of Dr Stoney's patients opinions. And the hunt was on. A sorry state of affairs when your own colleagues lead the hunt.
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.
