Treating patients at these locations
Dr. Michael A. White is a board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist serving patients in Fort Worth and Keller, Texas.
Dr. White. has been dedicated to providing excellent health care to his patients for more than 20 years. “I was inspired to become a physician by my desire to help people through medical illnesses, and I strive to improve their quality of life,” Dr. White says. “I was especially drawn to obstetrics and gynecology, as it is a field which provides a wide spectrum and diversity of challenges: combining fundamental primary care of medical disorders with surgical care and delivering new lives to families.”
Knowing that it is crucial for his patients to be as informed as possible about their healthcare, Dr. White takes a personal approach with them and encourages family involvement. He understands the importance of the examination, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of all aspects in women’s health. Dr. White believes in treating each patient with respect and dignity and he listens closely to his patients’ concerns.
According to Dr. White, “I most enjoy the interaction of the privileged doctor/patient relationship and my ability to alter people’s paths in their medical health by reducing or removing disease and empowering the patient to improve their health and life.”
Dr. White’s colleagues have recognized him as an outstanding physician in obstetrics and gynecology. In 2003, he was selected by his peers for inclusion in the Tarrant County’s Top Doctors annual listing of the best physicians in the county. He was selected as “Best OB/GYN” in Keller by the readers of the Keller Citizen in 2011, 2010 and 2009.
Virtually all of Dr. White’s gynecologic surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, focusing on minimally invasive techniques. Outpatient procedures include endometrial ablations and Essure (sterilization). Most of these can even be performed in an office setting for the patient’s convenience. For the past several years, Dr. White has performed laparoscopic hysterectomies using the da Vinci robotic system. The method provides patients with less postoperative pain and leads to easier recovery. Due to his extensive training, Dr. White was certified to perform nuchal translucency sonograms by The Fetal Medical Foundation in London for minimally invasive Down’s Syndrome Screening in 2002.
Dr. White and his wife, Carol, have been married for 32 years. They have three children, the eldest of whom, Chris, is a surgical resident and following his father’s footsteps into the medical field. Their daughter, Lauren, is a student at Dallas Baptist University, studying to be a Christian counselor for family therapy. Their younger son, Dimitri, is finishing high school and planning to attend college and join the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves. When Dr. White has some free time, he enjoys outdoor lake activities, skiing, boating and traveling with his family.
