Our company was founded by Dr. Marshall A. White, a board certified Neurologist who specializes in general neurology. A Columbia, South Carolina native, Dr. White attended undergraduate school at the Citadel, before returning to Columbia to attend the University of South Carolina School of Medicine. He remained in Columbia, SC to do an internship in Psychiatry prior to moving back to Charleston for a residency in Neurology at the Medical University of South Carolina. Dr. White is currently board certified in Neurology through the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and recertified in 2016.

Dr. White's belief is that prescription medications and invasive therapies are not always the answer and we must look at the Whole Picture when considering our health to end up with the most productive outcome. One must consider lifestyle factors, medications taken, as well as other disease processes that may contribute to our health problems. Dr. White evaluates the individual patient and implements the most effective treatment plan.
Dr White strives to educate his patients while learning about their lifestyle in order to formulate a treatment plan to best address their issues and swiftly relieve their symptoms. Stress, lack of sleep, poor nutrition, and obesity contribute to pain, disease and in many cases depression.
Dr. White often speaks to patients about the ``Triad of Misery``. This is the idea that the three sides of this triangle are: Sleeplessness, Serotonin Deficiency, and Pain. A triangle cannot exist without all three sides and if you have two of these symptoms you will have the 3rd. This creates a vicious cycle that is often difficult to break. Dr. White's knowledge of the human nervous system and how it interacts and controls each area of the body, along with extensive training in psychiatry, allow him to pick and choose medications, treatments, interventional pain management therapies and lifestyle changes that will best address all areas of the Triad when treating his patients.
