Pediatrician

Dr. Callie Stone truly enjoys being a pediatrician and helping patients with their urgent care needs. “I feel that urgent care is a great way to practice medicine. I really like the variety of patients and never really knowing what you are going to treat next,” she explains. “Every day is interesting when you work in urgent care.”

Some of the common problems that Dr. Stone treats include sore throats, colds and fever, urinary tract infections, and simple lacerations and fractures. No matter what the problem is, she truly enjoys interacting with her young patients. “It’s fun taking care of kids in general, and its especially rewarding for me to have a sick kid come in, be able to give some advice to them and the family, and then see them get healthier – it’s always great to make a difference in that way.”

One of things that Dr. Stone has noticed is that she is treating more kids for mental-health issues now. “Oftentimes kids and teenagers don’t outwardly say, ‘I’m stressed’ or ‘I’m depressed.’ A lot of times they come in complaining about headaches, backaches, or a change in their appetite, and you have to delve into the symptoms a little bit more to realize that maybe the problem is not something physical but something mental-health related.”

No matter where she is working at Reliant, Dr. Stone enjoys the ability to utilize an electronic medical record when treating patients. “Having access to electronic medical records is really great. It makes it easy to keep track of patients no matter which provider they are seeing – whether it’s urgent care, primary care, or a specialist. It’s great to have all that information at your fingertips and have it available at a moment’s notice.”

When she is not busy helping patients Dr. Stone enjoys spending time with her husband and two dogs, which were both adopted from a shelter. She also likes to go bike riding and hiking, as well as traveling to Europe, the Caribbean and places closer to home.
