Orthopedic Surgery | Male

Dr. Edward White, MD
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!

Patient Comments (3)
in Springfield, OR |
After suffering a swollen and sore knee for several days, with a referral from emergency services, Dr. White saw me promptly and assessed my condition immediately and proceeded to drain my knee of fluids, analyzed them promptly, recommended a procedure to alleviate the pain and underlying issue. The result allowed me to walk out of the clinic without a full leg brace I'd been using and to regain comfortable use of a normally performing knee. His comforting competence is welcomed and refreshing.
in Camden Maine |
Dr White is easy to talk to, explains my options and the procedures so so I can understand them easily. I always found him professional and caring. His staff is wonderful as well. I keep coming back because I haven't found the same quality of experience that a small clinic and local hospital give you elsewhere.
in Damariscotta Maine |
Dr White is rude, obnoxious and has absolutely no bed side manner. He talks done to his patients and shows no compassion.
