Dr. White was great. They’re busy in there but he patiently waited for me ask all my questions, gave his answers,and didn’t rush me at all. Much better than the previous dermatologist I visited at a different practice. Will return here.

I booked an appt toward the end of the work day one day earlier via ZocDoc. I arrived and quickly filledout 2 forms and was seen within a couple minutes. Dr. White met me in the exam room without delay, listened thoughtfully, diagnosed my issue quickly and prescribed a treatment. Overall very pleasant, easy, confidence-inspiring experience. Thank you, Dr. White and team!

A general practitioner gave me a preliminary diagnosis for a condition that I wanted Dr. White’s opinion on. I should have come to him in the first place as the other doctor provided me with several pieces of misinformation. Lesson learned,Dr. White is the best and solved the mystery in a matter of a few minutes.

Very happy to have found such a solid new dermatologist. The receptionist was pleasant and helpful, and I was seen almost immediately. Dr. White is very pleasant, thorough, and clearly quite knowledgeable. He took the time to adequately inquireabout personal/family history and symptomatology, listened to all concerns, and answered all questions. I truly felt like I was in good hands. Actually looking forward to my next appointment - highly recommend!

I’m a new patient so arrived 15-20 minutes early as directed to fill out paperwork. I wasn’t seen until almost an hour past my appointment time, which means I waited almost an hour and a half. When I was finally ableto see the doctor, he was kind and seemed knowledgeable. I only needed a refill on my prescription so didn’t talk with him at great length, but I liked him.

I came in with a laundry list of concerns, some of them embarrassing, and he fielded them without judgment and with a calm, professional demeanor that settled my anxiety. I got the feeling I was getting in early with a future“celebrity dermatologist”, I think he certainly has the makings for one. Glad I found my new dermatologist today.

Dr. White is absolutely fantastic! I was being seen by another dermatologist for weeks (7 visits!) that kept dosing with me heavy medications for a terrible itchy, burning, and bleeding rash on my face that would not go away. After readingall the reviews I decided to bite the bullet and see Dr. White despite the visit not being covered by my insurance; and boy am I glad I did! Dr. White did a more thorough exam in my first (AND ONLY) visit than my previous dermatologist did in seven in conjunction to listening to all my concerns. He treated me knowing I did not want to endure another round of heavy meds and got to the root of the problem. If you are suffering from an issue that won't seem to go away, I absolutely recommend seeing Dr. White. You won't regret it! Office is clean, staff is friendly, and Dr. White is super knowledgable.

Dr. White was very professional and knowledgeable. I appreciate that he took the time to listen to my concerns and was very patient (I did not feel rushed). He gave me various options to treat my facial acne, which I likedbecause I felt like I could choose what was best for me rather than just being told one thing. I went on a Friday at 10:30 am and only waited about 10 minutes to be seen. Everyone at the office was super friendly and I would definitely go back!
