Excellent physician and surgeon
I had Rotator cuff repair by Dr. White. She is extremely caring and knowledgeable but explains everything to you in a manner which is understandable. She prayed with me prior to surgery which I very much appreciated. Every visit has been wonderful. I highly recommend her!

Thorough and to the point
I was recommended to ask for Dr. White . So far she has been nothing but professional and positive. The suggestions to go ahead and have a smaller procedure to fix a torn rotator cuff rather than waiting were definitely what I needed to hear. The process and downtime were well explained with the focus on PT and rest being primary to a good recovery.

Great doctor!
I have had 2 surgeries done by Dr. White and could not ask for a better outcome. She is patient, kind, understanding and absolutely very thorough in her work. If I ever need another surgery I will definitely go see Dr. White.

Awesome orthopedist
Lydia is very caring of her patients. She explains everything to how it's going to go, and make sure her patient is comfortable before doing anything. I'm a 41 year old female that have had both meniscus fixed in my knees & cleaning up of all one in 2018 & 2020 by Dr White. She did an awesome job. I have a debilitating condition called Freiderich's Ataxia which breaks down joints, muscles, etc. Lydia says my knees have more arthritis in my knees, so we're trying the lubricating gel for my knees. I trust Lydia with my life & don't want to have knees replaced being so young. Lydia says she believes they will help, and not have to go through knee replacements. I love Lydia just like family, if you're having a bad day her energy & positivity will make you feel better plus she always has a smile on her face and it makes me smile. Her smile is so beautiful and contagious. She is a beautiful soul & very knowledgeable for sure & she went to school in Knoxville! We Agee GO BIG ORANGE! Lol

Dr Lydia White
I recently required surgery to repair a broken wrist and was fortunate enough to connect with Dr. Lydia White.  Her office was able to schedule my conciliation and surgery within 10 days of my injury.  Dr. White explained in detail what would take place during my procedure and prior to anesthesia she asked if we could say a prayer.  Following surgery she met with my wife and again with me once I recovered from anesthesia.  I'm rapidly regaining flexibility and strength in my wrist with her prescribed physical therapy.  In my opinion, Dr. White is the epitome of what every health care professional should strive to be.  She's a highly skilled caring professional with a tremendously positive attitude toward the care of her patients.  Hands down the best care I have ever received and I would highly recommend Dr. White to anyone needing an outstanding Orthopedic Surgeon.

Outstanding in every way
My experience continues to be outstanding after having carpal tunnel release surgery. The diagnosis, preparation, procedure and recovery have all been excellent. Dr . White is attentive and patient, answering all my questions. She is one of the few doctors I have ever encountered whom I would recommend without hesitation.

Dr. White was so sincere and concerned about my hand and the pain I was enduring. She was prompt and efficient in diagnosing my hand and giving a shot to help my hand. She had my medicine called in to CVS before she even gave me my shot. The next morning my hand already is less swollen and feeling much better. I am very pleased with my results and how I was treated by Dr. White and all the TOA staff. I highly recommend her.

Top notched!
I’m a health care provider and recommend her to almost all of my patients (I spare her the difficult ones). She also has cared for my orthopedic injuries as well, not only because of her extreme competency, but because she represents all of the qualities we need in our clinicians but are now hard pressed to find. There are many qualified physicians in our area but Dr. White is the complete package!
