Dr. White, in his own words, “I have wanted to be a doctor since I was 6 years old. The Cosby Show is what initially sparked my interest. I love helping people and I am so blessed to be able to interact with a wide array of people on a daily basis. I tell all of my patients that being healthy is hard. It so easy to do the unhealthy things, which encompass what you eat and not exercising among other things like tobacco use. My goal is to have patients so healthy that they rarely have to see me.”
