Specialties

Dr. James R White has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Dr. White is exceptional

Dr. White is very down to earth and easy to talk to and when you are with him you feel like you have his full attention. I have always felt that we are a team working on a problem because he allows me to give my input on the medications and side effects since I am the one who has to live with them. I feel lucky to have found such a caring doctor.

Fantastic Doctor!

Everyone needs a medical genius on their side, and doctor white is just that. Not only does he have the ability to understand the disorders and diagnose/treat them better than any doctor I have met...but I love that he explains exactly what is going on in in Lamans terms. Great neurologist in the twin cities of minnesota for epilepsy and many other seizure disorders or neurological conditions.

Dr. White rocks my socks off!

I was in Abbot Northwestern for a little more for a week. It was really tough because I didn't know what was going on at first. Then he came in and sat down with my mom and I and explained everything to us. I loved how he repeated a lot to us in order to ensure us on my case. I understand a lot more about epilepsy thanks to him and his staff!
