Dr. White and his staff are such very capable professionals. I would NOT switch to any other Abilene Physician. If you wait on a visit it is because they have a patient who "needs" to be seen longer. I have been one of those at times !

Review for Dr. Ganesh

Dr. Cecil diagnosed me with prostate cancer in 2020. He provided the options to me and I decided to go with the surgery. I am very pleased with the care after surgery and the follow up care that he has given me. I highly recommend him for any prostate problems.
