Knows his specialty well. Good at describing medical problems and solutions.
Dr. White answered many questions. He went over options and pros and cons of each. I am sure my appointment went over due to all the detailed questions but I was not rushed. He did not push surgery which is what he does for a living. Really appreciate that
I really enjoyed Dr. White and the service that he provided me for my hiatal hernia. I did misunderstand and went in for an in person visit when in fact, I had made an appointment for a zoom visit and did not realize it. More my fault, but still an issue. He was very kind and saw me in person.
Very happy with this provider.
I saw Dr. White for consultation. He was considerate, understanding, and explalined things to me in a way it was easy to understand. He took time to answer several questions and respond to each of them. I felt comfortable with him and would never hesitate to see him again.
Dr While was exceptional in his mannerism, he was very understanding of my health concerns and I felt he gave me all my options for treatment and completely respected the direction I was choosing at this time.
