Ratings for Dr. Fred White
DO NOT GO HERE! I REPEAT-DO NOT GO HERE! To begin the secretary was a bit**! Dr White scolded my child for "interrupting" when he was speaking. She's 5! We left the appointment feeling absolutely awful. I hope he retires soon because it's very obvious that he is burnt out.
Dr White is nothing to write home about. He won't let you get a word in sideways. His secretary is a horrible person and neither of them have any form of bedside manner. They clearly don't like children and lack in the people skills department. This was our first time seeing an allergist and we weren't sure what to expect. They didn't bother explaining the test and basically made my child feel like he was being tortured. Instead of being understanding, the under qualified secretary/tester told my child he would have to get it done all over again if he didn't stop touching it and then stormed out of the room like a child after making a rude remark. She also did not wash or sanitize her hands before beginning the test. Disgusting that she would be in this field of work! I would caution against going to this practice.
I found Dr. White to be more than just very pleasant but rather and uplifting. I do have enough of a medical background to also realize that he's quite brilliant, explains very well and leaves you with a strong sense of confidence. My issue was the worry over a potentially life-threatening gallery to lobster, however, with a questionable history possibly indicating no allergy at all. Dr. White put thru 3 levels of testing over a few months to conclusively determine weather I was or not. I would highly recommend Dr White to anyone and would not go anywhere else.
I had a great first experience with Dr. White and his nurse Kelly. I was seen right on time. I did not feel rushed and the doctor seemed to genuinely care about my issue. The only thing is I would suggest to confirm your appointment a couple days before since I do not think that they do courtesy calls to remind you. Don't let the negative reviews discourage you from seeing this doctor.
He was nice enough to my young son and I. However he didn't listen to my entire history (also they had paper forms in the office, which makes it more difficult for people to remember their whole history offhand), and only tested my son for 2 allergens, both if which I already knew he wasn't allergic to. So he didn't take the time to actually do anything helpful.
Both my husband and I have have hard experiences with this Doctor. When Have been moved from office to office with him. At one of the apt we drove to his office hours away to find out that he was closed for the day. No call, no message. While he is knowledgeable, he fails to share information that is pertinent to your condition. Unfortunately at the last apt he shared with us that there really wasn't anything he could do. We drove hours away for that!!
