Patient Comments (7)
Had an appointment with Dr. White May of 2016. After waiting 6 weeks to get the appointment, driving 150 miles and waiting for 2 hrs in his office I was complaining to a nurse on the wait time when he came in and over heard. He rudely and quickly informed me "I am a specialist and if the time you had to wait bothers you I can walk you to the front. After acquiring my co payment back I left. I wish I would of told him that with all the letters in "specialist" I couldn't spell God or Lord.

Dr. White researched my condition and identified IGG4 periorbital disease and Maltoma. He was great and is still doing follow ups on my condition. Would highly recommend Dr. White.

Dr. White is capable, however, he has no "bedside manner" whatsoever. He left me waiting for :45 to tell me biopsy results. He could not be described as warm, friendly, or caring...his response to my complaint of having to wait so long was that he didn't even look at me and said, "well, that's typical for this office."

As another commenter mentioned - always in a hurry & that leaves you as a patient VERY frustrated. I had two procedures with him & left unhappy. Quite frankly, I was in tears more often than I should have been. I was one of his much younger patients, & he didn't really care much about the ascetic outcome of my procedure just that it was done. I'm left with an outcome that is no better than what I started with. The last straw was at my final follow up, I waited 1.5 hrs to see him.. never did.

Dr. White is a busy man and, unfortunately, he's always in a hurry. Don't ask too many questions. He's in a hurry. Don't question the outcome of your surgery. He's in a hurry. Don't ask him to repair something you believe isn't right with your treatment. He's in a hurry. A kind man, but pushed to his limits and your treatment/ surgery outcome may be less than you expect.

Dr. White did a skin graft right near my left eye. I had basal cell cancer and had MOHS before the graft. It looks terrific--no one can see it and it healed well. Dr. White is easy to work with and has a good patient/doctor rapport.
in Liberty, Mo |
Dr White gave the correct diagnosis and treatment when 2 other specialist had no idea what was going on. By describing my symptoms to him he ordered tests and had me in his office within the week. He had an idea of what was going on and he was right. I had a mass growing behind my eye. He did not sugarcoat the diagnosis. He told me what he would do and what the possible outcomes would be. His follow up care was excellent.
