When not caring for patients, Stone enjoys spending time with his wife and their daughter and two sons. Mountain climbing, skiing, camping, soccer, coaching and ultimate Frisbee are just a few of his many interests.

Stone is accepting new patients and may be reached at Mountain Medical General Surgery,located at 680 Guzzi Ln., Ste. 101, in Sonora. More information and appointments are available by calling (209) 536-5790.
