Ratings for Dr. Joseph B White
Worst experience in my LIFE with this doctor. He HSS horrible bedside manners. If it weren't for a nurse at Alexandria Hospital, I would've went home after surgery in bad condition because of him! I don't care how many years experience he has, he had zero experience when it came to my condition but he sure did put on a good act like he did! Horrible horrible doctor!
The staff are very pleasant and fun. Dr. White has exceptional bed-side manners and is one of the best I've been to. He takes the time to listen to the patient, rather than rushing you out the door. The downside to this is that it makes his office wait longer than usual. He referred me to a specialist rather than taking on the job himself because of the situation involved. That shows a humble attitude.
Dr. White seemed to know his stuff. I have had trouble for years with a bad back and he has me feeling a lot better now. I can't remember the last time I felt like someone was able to help me with my medical problems without making me feel discouraged ... His staff was very helpful and got me in without any trouble even though my work schedule usually makes that hard.
I have seen this physician many times over the years. Occasionally, I have had to wait for my appointment, but the amount of time he spends with each patient is extensive. Well worth the wait! His staff is helpful and well versed in insurance issues/referrals/hospital procedures, etc. In my opinion, this is an example of the way medicine should be administered. Would highly recommend this practice for individuals seeking orthopedic care.....
I was operated by Dr. White a few years ago. I did not have medical insurance at that time, and when I approached Dr. White regarding my financial situation, he was willing to work with me on a payment plan, until my account was paid in full. He was compassionate to my medical situation as well as my financial situation, and the surgery was a complete success. Dr. White spent an enormous amount of time with me during my medical crisis. I would recommend this physician without hesitation. Thank you, Dr. White.
If you are seen by this Dr. in the emerg. room, don't expect much! He is eager to send his patients home without proper follow-up. Furthermore, his office staff follows this example in their admin duties. Don't bother to ask him a single question about YOUR condition; either he dosen't have an answer, or you'll be told that you "aren't qualified to understand the details of YOUR medical issues at hand." Emerg. room conditions are stressful enough without the added element of bad manners and down right mean attitudes.
I think that Dr. White is a decent doctor, but to get to him, you have to go thru his rude and incompetent office staff. They schedule, re-schedule and cancel appointments at the drop of a hat, without notification. If you have all the time in the world, then it shouldn't be a problem. But those of us with jobs, families and lives can't afford to show up on time and find out that the appointment was cancelled. What a shame that this doctor surrounds himself with such unprofessional staff.
