Dr. James White was named Top Doctor in the Chattanooga region and Top General Surgeon in Tennessee by HealthTap. The HealthTap Top Doctor Competition (Winter 2013) brought together the world's best and most helpful online and mobile medical experts to compete for both local and national titles.  

Tens of thousands of doctors competed for Top Doctor, Top Specialist, Most Influential Doctor, and Thought Leader Awards. Winners were selected by other doctors (who rated their peers based on demonstrated knowledge and expertise) as well as by consumers (who rated doctors on bedside manner and personality).

Dr. White is the medical director of Advanced Surgical Concepts. He holds board certification by the American Board of Surgery and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgery, as well as a Diplomat with the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery and the American Board of Phlebology. 

Outside of medicine, Dr. White, his wife, and two sons are members of Silverdale Baptist Church of Chattanooga. They have made medical/surgical mission trips to Mexico and Haiti, and since 1998, they have called Cleveland their home.

After graduating Magna Cum Laude from the Medical College of Georgia, Dr. White went on to complete a General surgery residency at the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga and has been active in office based cosmetic surgery procedures ever since.

Dr. White has been published in several surgical journals, and he has given numerous lectures and presentations during his medical career. Voted teaching resident of the year, Dr. White is currently teaching fellows in conjunction with Dr. Carey Nease as a Cosmetic Fellowship instructor with Southern Surgical Arts of Chattanooga. He has comprehensive experience in varicose vein surgery, laser skin resurfacing, skin cancer treatment options, eyelid lift surgery, facelift, Botox, and the like. He also has vast experience with x-ray and ultrasound, which allowed him to pursue advanced training in Phlebology with an emphasis on the use of EVLA laser closure and ultrasound guided sclerotherapy in the non-surgical treatment of vein diseases.

Most recently, Dr. White was named a Top Doctor and Top General Surgeon in Chattanooga and the state of Tennessee, respectively. He is nationally ranked in varicose veins, veins, hair transplant, and venous stasis. Both patients and colleagues alike thank and agree with his expert answers.
