Complimentary phone consultation

Can we fix your joint injury? If you don't live near us, here's an easy way to find out.

If you're in the San Francisco Bay Area, please book an appointment to see us in person. If, like many of our patients, you don't live in the Bay Area, we offer a complimentary phone consultation service.
There is no fee for the consultation; however, we ask that you make a tax-deductible donation to the Stone Research Foundation, a separate 501(C)(3) non-profit entity dedicated to sports medicine and arthritis research, education, and training. You can learn more about the Foundation at

Phone consultation instructions


If you have any questions or need help completing the steps below, please contact our Consultation Coordinator:

Step 1

Step 1: Phone Consultation Form

Fill out a short questionnaire requesting information regarding the joint of concern as well as demographic/contact information. Please click the link below to complete. Once you have answered all of the questions, the form will alert you that your submission is 100% complete and The Clinic will receive an email to follow up with you. 

Next Steps

Step 2: Collect and prepare your images and documents

Please collect all operative photos, operative reports, typed radiology reports, MRI’s, and x-rays for the affected joint. We require that images have been completed in the last six months to one year as well as any typed radiology reports that you may have that accompany those images. All images must be postoperative, meaning after any previous surgeries.

If you do not yet have these images, you can have your technician use the following guidelines for the Knee, Shoulder, and Foot/Ankle to see the x-rays and MRIs that we will need.

Step 3

Step 3: Send us your medical images and information


You can send The Clinic your imaging online or via mail. You may transfer your medical imaging safely and securely to The Stone Clinic online using our imaging uploader tool Purview Viva. Simply drag and drop the files of your x-ray or MRI from your CD/DVD or thumbdrive into the uploader and they will be securely transmitted to the staff at The Clinic.
