Complaint: Dr Stone Perform a botched lower Abdomen Liposuction. He was suppose to perform upper abdomen. I paid a deposit for 600 the day of consultation. The day of the procedure I paid another 940. Total of 1,540. I was suppose to pay 2,thousand but I told him i would comeback with the rest of the 470. So hubby and I wrote a check for That just to hold it until we got back and pay cash. Dr Stone said he would hold on to the check and not cash it since we told him there was no funds until the following week. It was just a secure pay till we got back with the 470. Since Dr Stone never perform upper abdomen liposuction we cancel payment. I have a lot of pictures as evidence that he never perform upper abdomen lipo. I got my surgery 1/13/16 went home and immediately I developed. Severe infection in my lower abdomen. I had to be admitted at Cedars Sinai and Ucla to get multiple rounds of antibiotics. I was in and out of the ER for a month to cure the liposuction infection. I called his assistant Ruth Ann to ask of the redness is normal and she never got back to me. We left Dr Stone messages and he never replied. He came to see me at Cedars Sinai because my husband called him to let him know I was admitted. Dr Stone was very rude and not caring at all to my medical needs. My Primary Doctor at Ucla came to see me and told me DR Stone has been in communication with him to help me fixed the botched lipo. I don’t understand why Dr Stone goes behind my back to get in contact with my primary doctor at Ucla to discuss this medical matter behind my back. Also Dr Stone is accusing me of being a narcotic Drug seeker and that there is an investigation from law enforcement. when in fact I have many medical issues aside from the lipo infection. I got in 2 terrible accidents leading me to have a spine problems. Herniated disc. God knows what it is to be in constant pain. There for I have been to many different doctors such as neurologist. Rheumatologist. Pain doctor. Etc… Witch is non of his concern. I have proof of all my medical records. Second Dr Stone is accusing me of being prosecuted by Law Enforcement for writing bad checks. I have not received any calls from any detective regarding that matter. Dr Stone should not be saying all this false accusations on Yelp. (Social Media ) Shame on You Dr Stone to discredit a client of yours. Dr Stone told me after my procedure on 1/13/16 that the following Saturday my pain should feel a lot better. That was false. I was in the worst pain of my life for a whole month. I couldn’t walk, sleep. Or drive my car. To all this not once did I call Dr Stone to prescribed me narcotics. While I was getting the procedure I felt horrific Pain !!! I asked Dr Stone to please give me more pain med through the IV and he clearly said no. I felt like I was being stabbed with. Sharp knife. Please don’t go with this Dr Stone. He is not a board certified plastic Surgeon. Dr Stone is an anesthesiologist. I completely regret this procedure. My belly looked way better before this. Dr Stone left my belly uneven with lumps. Dr Stone is not professional at all. Has the worst bed side manners. The cannulas Dr Stone uses are not sanitized. Also the groupon deal is 500 for lower abdomen and he charge me 1,540. Any other area is 1,450. He is a scam artist. The under garment is 200 ! The radio frequency is 175!! Total rip off. Please beware !! Go at your own risk with Dr Stone. Narda the nurse that was with me in the procedure room was extremely rude. Narda was so agressive when she help me get in the under garment. She said I was just exaggerating and being a cry baby. How dare she talks to patients like That. I am so dissatisfied. I wished I would’ve just done more research and gone with. Board certified plastic surgeon with many years of experience in liposuction. Please please people don’t go here. Do your homework and research. You can go on Yelp under Friva and see for yourself Dr Stone has bad reviews. DR Stone you have my contact info and you should’ve called me to discuss this matter. Not on Yelp or social media. Also you are doing false accusations along with defamation of character by saying I’m a narcotic drug seeker. Etc… I regret that whole experience. I’m still in a lot of pain. I lost so much weight from the Liposuction infection. I’ve been taking strong antibiotics everyday.
