I have been a patient of Dr White's for over 13 years. His bedside manner is way beyond the normal (now days) ten minute rule visit. I have gone into his office on many occasions and have never felt rushed. Dr White and his PA Ava are always willing to assist me with what I need. I have never walked out of their practice without all my questions answered. Dr White is an incredible doctor and it's hard to top his expertise and professionalism.The staff at his office is amazing!! They know their stuff, from the front office, laboratory, x-ray, medical records. I have nothing but praise for their office.Incredible Doctor Always!!!Shirley Bailey

Dr. White has been our family doctor for over twenty years and his advice and care has carried my wife, my daughter, and now my grand daughter through may tough medical decisions and referred us to others for specialty care. Thanks Mike, I probably would not have been here to write this if you were not the caring person you are.
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
