Dr. White gave me the ability to breathe through my nose again after performing sinus surgery! He corrected my deviated septum and took out an air pocket in my other nostril. It is absolutely heavenly to breathe easier and my sense of smell has returned. He did an outstanding job! I would highly recommend Dr. White. He listens to his patients well and does all that he can to help us. The nurses are wonderful, too! They were able to answer all of my pre- and post surgery questions. Thank to all!!!!

Doc White is amazing! I was having trouble breathing through my nose, with a choking sensation laying down. He told me that I had a deviated septum & my nose wasn't passing air freely. He gave me options and explained each one extensively. When I chose surgery, I knew what I was getting into. After surgery, when I had a concerning question come up, I was surprised that he personally called me back after hours to reassure me. Today nose splints came out. Wow! I can breathe again! Thanks doc!!!

Dr. White has been amazing to our family! He did our daughter's tonsil & adenoid surgery and went above and beyond. He and his staff were very thoughtful and made our little girl feel like a princess during the procedure. He also referred me to a sleep specialist for my sleep apnea and may have saved my life as I have severe sleep apnea and was at risk for many health problems. I sleep better then I have in years! We love Dr. White and his staff and would recommend him to anyone .

Dr White provides high level quality patient care, is very thorough, and up-to-date with the latest medical advances. In the clinic he is not rushed, sits down to talk and is willing to listen. He displays effective age appropriate communication creating an “at ease” comfort level with me and my children which lead to great patient rapport. He demonstrates outstanding knowledge, thorough clinic exam and a clear follow-up plan. Dr White shows top performance in surgery with exceptional outcomes.

Dr. White was able to get us in promtly after being refered by another physician, his staff was courteous and knowledgeable, the care before, during, and after surgery, was above expectations. There is an older nurse at the same day surgery center that is more concerned about getting off then making sure patients are ok and ready to go though...

Dr White is simply the most caring, informative and available doctor my family and I have ever seen. His nurses are just as amazing. They all go out of their way to get us appointments in a timely fashion, return our calls promptly, and are never in a hurry when listening to our concerns. You can tell he actually cares about your issue. We actually look forward to our visits with him! He has been a true blessing from God. HIGHLY recommend!!

I went in with sleep apnea and came out a new man. Before surgery I stopped breathing while I slept, flailed my arms and legs while sleeping, and talked in my sleep. Dr. White suggested UPPP surgery, tonsillectomy, nasal reconstruction, scraping of the palette, and pinning up my uvula. Now, I never quit breathing, sleep all night, I have tons of energy, I feel like doing things again and I have a new lease on life! Everyone notices the positive effects! Dr. White gave me my life back. Thank you!
