When I came back to the clinic I was hoping to have the same doctor I had during my first pregnancy, Dr. John Houchins. He wasn't taking clients but recommended Dr. Charles White. I couldn't be happier. He's very nice, smart and helpful. With having a still born my last pregnancy, I feel he goes above and beyond with allmy concerns.

May 23, 2016

Charles White is the best provider I've ever had. It simply doesn't get any better.

May 21, 2016

Dr. White always takes time to explain things thoroughly.

May 20, 2016

Dr. White is really great.

May 19, 2016

Dr. White is the best provider I have ever seen, and I say that as a PA myself, with lots of experience w/ good and bad providers. He spends as much time as you need, shows genuine concern, and is thorough with his questioning and exam. I have recommended that my father see him, which he now does, and I think that is the highest compliment I can give. Couldn't ask for better. Give him a raise and please pass this on!

May 16, 2016

I already did

February 02, 2016

January 29, 2016

October 05, 2015

I've told family and friends that this is a great place to see a doctor

October 04, 2015

good experience

October 02, 2015

This was my first visit with Dr. White and w/intern Susan. All went very well. They were especially attentive and responsive.

September 04, 2015

First, I just want to say that the level of care I experienced with my procedure was very good. I understand that this is a teaching hospital and I also booked the appointment hastily so I was happy to deal with the two doctors who did the procedure. That being said, if general practitioners are to perform a procedure on a part of the body they are unfamiliar or inexperienced with, they should probably not do the procedure without help. Thankfully I was not inconvenienced by the time it took and the position the physicians had me in for the better part of an hour (in fact I found the whole thing quite funny), but being able to recognize that the tool they used was simply too small would have saved us all a lot of time and awkwardness.

September 01, 2015

First appt. was a great experience. Felt great comfort with this Dr.

August 29, 2015

i WISH THE DOCTOR WOULD BE ASSERTIVE IN SENDING ME OUT FOR DIFFERENT TESTS THAT i NEED. pLEASE TAKE THE INITIATIVE AND TELL ME WHERE i NEED TO GO TO GET THE TESTING THAT WOULD SHED LIGHT ON MY PROBLEMS THAT HE HASN'T BEEN ABLE TO FIGURE OUT.

August 29, 2015

Dr. White is the best!

August 28, 2015

Dr Charles White is the BOMB!!! He is a personable, competent, & knowledgeable medical provider that knows best how to care for patients. I would highly recommend him to any of my patients!

August 05, 2015

all around outstanding service.

August 01, 2015

Dr. White was great. He seemed genuinely invested in giving me a good experience during my exam and providing me with follow up information about test results. He also answered questions and provided suggestions regarding another issue I had. He was very helpful.

July 13, 2015

Dr. White is a wonderful, caring, and compassionate MD. He always takes the time to answer my questions and really hears my concerns. He does not rush. I have recommended him to many of my friends and they all love him as their PCP!( many of my friends as RNs and other health care professionals.

July 07, 2015

Dr White has always taken his time to listen, study, and evaluate any issues I may be experiencing. He doesn't talk down to people he talks to and with them. I am pleased to be able to talk to someone that actually makes you feel comfortable talking about sensitive issues.

July 01, 2015

Dr. White was friendly good humored and overall made me feel like he was very competent. My previous experience I felt like I was being used as a teaching tool not being seen as a patient. This was not like that at all Dr. White was great.

June 25, 2015

Dr. White was exceptionally attentive in listening to my concerns, talking through possible reasons I was experiencing certain symptoms, conducting appropriate tests, and following up with me after my visit via MyHealth.

June 12, 2015

I have recommended Dr. White and my friend made an appointment with him.

May 21, 2015

Dr. White seems like a wonderful and very caring doctor. My previous doctor was John Houchins, and I was very sad to see him leave after so many years as my provider. However, Dr. White came highly recommended and I am very happy with him as a successor.

September 22, 2014

September 22, 2014

He couldn't help me because he had no background on my back issues. He was only able to re-fill my prescriptions. I still have to see my primary doctor for a followup on my back.

September 15, 2014

Very good, attentive, efficient health care

August 28, 2014

I've been Dr. White's patient for many years. He always takes time to explain things well. He takes time to ask questions about me as a person and what's going on in my life, so I don't feel like a number. I think tho is important to my overall treatment. He is an excellent physician.
