Patient Care Philosophy
I strive to provide an unsurpassed level of care and to make each patient’s experience as comfortable and pleasant as possible. My office is a sacred place where I get to know my patient and understand his or her story so I can manage their care and recovery. I am a proponent of accessible patient care and spend a great deal of time with each patient prior to a procedure, as well as at their bedside during recovery and for any follow-up care they may need. I am passionate and enthusiastic about surgery and believe in providing state of the art quality care.
Dr. White’s clinical interests include general surgery; surgical treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease; esophageal, hiatal hernia, gallbladder, stomach, hernia and colon surgery; and advanced laparoscopy and robotic surgical procedures.
Esophageal disease; outcomes research; enhanced recovery after surgery.
