How do thank someone who has changed your life forever for the better; A life which consisted of neck and back pain, trenches in my shoulder, and very unhappy with my upper body. I would like to start by personally thanking Dr. Kenneth White for the remarkable work he has done to me. I recently underwent breast reduction surgery. I was referred by a coworker who had surgery several years ago also by Dr. White. Like any surgery, I was very skeptical and very afraid, but the first time I met him at my consultation all my doubts and fears went away. He is more than just a surgeon he is a very genuine man. I had very little pain, the results turned out beautifully (pictures will come later). And you will not find a friendlier more helpful staff. Dr White, God has blessed you with the ability to help people who otherwise feel there is no hope, he has given you a genuine, caring, and compassionate spirit; and in this day and time it is very rare to find those qualities in a doctor much less a surgeon. I have been working in the medical field since 1998 and have met various doctors , and after meeting Dr. White I found you to be more than just a doctor, you are an inspiration. My overall experience with Dr. White at Wilmington Plastic Surgery and his staff is A ++ with me.

I underwent breast reduction 5 years ago by Dr. White. Best surgery I could have ever had. As a Dr. and person he is just Awesome. He is so caring, compassionate and takes time with his patients. One thing that amazed me and helped me with feeling nervous about the surgery was that before we went into surgery his nurse, himself, and myself had prayer led by Dr. White. I have never had a surgeon do that in my years and surgeries that I have had. That shows and tells a lot about Dr. White and the kind of Dr. and man he is. To this day I still brag on my only Plastic Surgeon I will ever have. When people mention things they want done reconstructive I always recommend Dr. White. My experience was pleasant and will be going back to him if I have anything else needing to be done. AWESOME DOCTOR!!!!!

Dr. White did my breast reduction and abdominalplasty and I couldn't be happier. He was very professional and exceeded my expectations. He called me at home post op to check on me and is still available for questions after 2 years. He is truly the best of the best! It is not very often that you get the best surgeon as well as an outstanding bedside manner. The staff was very helpful, kind and organized in this whole process. I would highly recommend Dr. White !

Words can not express the exceptional care I received from Dr. White and his staff during my recent breast reduction surgery. I was treated with the utmost care and professionalism through this life altering surgery. I am beyond happy with my result and could not say enough about Dr. White and his staff.

- Jenna Bethune

I met Dr. White about 17 years ago. I cannot say enough about this man and his skills, professional attitude, but not only that he is someone who makes his patient feel comfortable, After all these years, I had to see him again, he made me feel like part of his family. Hugs, smiles, compassionate, are just a few of his virtues. We are truly blessed to have this man as a medical professional.
