DR. ANN WHITE’S RETIREMENT
After 25 years of caring for the children of the metro Atlanta and North Georgia area, Dr. White is retiring from the practice of medicine effective August 15, 2013.
“The decision to retire is bittersweet. I thoroughly enjoy what I do and would do it all over again. Thank you to every person who made Atlanta Children’s ENT a success. I am grateful to all my patient families who allowed me to care for their children… and their children as well. Now that my children are out of school, it is time for me to move on to the next chapter in my life.
With a great deal of consideration, I have chosen Dr Melissa Statham to take over Atlanta Children’s ENT. I have the utmost confidence in Dr Statham’s medical expertise and great respect for her personally. I am leaving my practice, my staff and my patients in very capable hands. “
Dr. White and family are relocating to Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada where they will enjoy gardening, kayaking, hiking, skiing and learning to say “eh” after each phrase!
