Ratings for Dr. Robert White, Jr
Dr. White does not run a tight ship. His front staff are rude and unhelpful/friendly. Not what you need when you feel bad. As knowledgeable as he may be, he doesn't apply it. He is not timely with results, which is horrible in medicine. Staff doesn't follow-up as they should regarding results. He spends a lot of time talking about things that have nothing to do with the appointment. And he tends to run late and likes to leave early, which leaves patients in the waiting room.
I would not recommend Dr. White to anyone. He is very aloof, cocky, does not listen and basically acts as if your concerns are unwarranted. He is the WORST doctor I think I have ever seen, no kidding. He talks down to you and treats you as if he knows your problem better than you. Stay far, far away from this doctor if you want quality care. Two family members have gone to him by referral and feel the same as I.
The staff has been helpful each time I've called, even if I have to call back they're patient. When I've not followed up on my labs they've called me on it at the next appt so I know he's aware of what is and is not being done. When I've gone in for meds he always asks how they are working at the next appointment. Doesn't rush me when I'm in and I really feel he is present with me as a patient. I would recommend him to others. I actually have a few family members who he provides services for.
Stay away from this doctor. He is just milking Medicare. He does not have a clue how to treat medical problems. The staff is awful, will not answer phone or return calls. Never, never will he treat the problem. He doesn't know how so they just stall and stall and stall. All he does is run up tests for Deaconess for $$$$$. The dumbing down of America.
Dr. White is truly God-sent. He had great bedside manners, always listened, and there were options. He was a humble physician that included his patients with his diagnosis and prescriptions. He spoke to you as an equal and insured that his patients were happy and most importantly healthy. My insurance changed, and I'm waiting for 2011 to come so I can switch it and get Dr. White back. I highly recommend him!
Fails to follow-up on lab results in a timely manner. Even when results show a problem it may take 2-3 weeks for the nurse to call back with simple UA and/or CBC results from the lab next door. He isn't always aware that he has prescribed medication for a problem because it doesn't get charted. Visits and telephone conversations are not always charted, either.
