Dr. Jean K White has the following 1 specialty
Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

I went to Dr. White for artery disease for several years and he performed procedures putting stints in my legs. The last procedure my leg was completely blocked (doctor error) and I came out of surgery complaining of extreme pain. I was left for over 20 hours with no blood flow to that leg. I now have permanent damage to the nerves, tissue and muscles. Dr. White completely ignored my complaint of extreme pain and I am now left with painful damage to my leg. I would not recommend him to anyone.
Dr. White has been my heart specialist for over 25 years. He is a kind and gentle doctor, is never in a hurry, always answers any questions that I have, and has taken excellent care of me for all these years. His nurse is a great asset and is always available to return your calls. I highly recommend Dr. White to anyone who needs a heart specialist.
