Traci White, M.D., has practiced pain management in Tulsa since 2009. When treating patients, she looks at the whole person then customizes a plan of care. “There are so many aspects of a person’s life that are effected by their pain,” she says. “There is no cookie cutter treatment for chronic pain.” Patient comments about her include:
"I have been a patient of Dr. White for years. She is a very knowledgeable and caring doctor. She prescribed me an alternative medication that saved my life. My pain levels are nothing compared to what they were."
Dr. White got into health care because it is a combination of two things she enjoys. “I love science and also love to interact with people and health care is a perfect mix,” she says. “I felt that this was an area I could make a difference in the lives of others.”
Before pursuing a career in medicine, Dr. White worked in sales with retirees. It was here she realized she wanted to focus on pain management. “I heard over and over from these retirees that their pain had the most negative impact on their quality of life,” she says. “I feel that improving someone’s quality of life is sometimes more important than just extending their life.”
Dr. White received a Bachelor of General Studies degree from Oklahoma State University in 1996. She earned a medical degree from University of Oklahoma College of Medicine in 2004. She completed an anesthesiology residency and pain management fellowship at Washington University in 2008 and 2009, respectively.
When she is away from the office, Dr. White enjoys traveling, spending time with family, being involved in her church and serving others.
Dr. White welcomes new patients and accepts most insurance plans. Her office is located at:
Utica Park Clinic / Pain Management of Tulsa
6802 S. Olympia Ave., Suite 100
Tulsa, Oklahoma 74132
