Dr. White's bio

This content was provided by Dr. White "I had wanted to be a surgeon from the age of 9. I was introduced to Orthopedics in high school when I worked in the local hospital emergency department and met the man who was to become my close friend and mentor, Dr. Charlie Parsons. I wanted to live someplace seasonal, rural, coastal and spectacular when done with training. Hence, I moved to the coast of Maine (Damariscotta) in January, 1986. Since then, I've enjoyed knowing 3-4 generations of individual families. It's amazing treating today an adult I had treated years go as a young child!"

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. White "I would like a patient of mine to feel cared for, like he/she was a full participant in decision making, that he/she had been fully informed, that I had only his/her best interests in mind, that I instilled a feeling of confidence and that the each visit was as enjoyable as a trip to a doctor could be."
