Dr. Kertrisa McWhite moves to the new James G. Barrett Medical Office Building
Area healthcare providers and members of the community recently attended
an open house to celebrate the relocation of Dr. Kertrisa McWhite’s
breast care services practice to the new James G. Barrett Medical Office
Building in Berlin. The building, open since July, is located on Atlantic
General Hospital’s campus at the entrance of Healthway Drive.
Dr. McWhite previously met with her patients inside Atlantic General Hospital’s
Women’s Diagnostic Center and moved to the new office to take advantage
of the larger consultation and exam room space needed for her growing
practice. The spacious suite will give her the ability to perform more
breast biopsies and other simple procedures herself from within the office,
a reassurance to patients who take comfort in an established relationship
with a healthcare provider in a familiar setting.
Dr. McWhite joined Atlantic General Hospital in the spring of 2006 after
completing a Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation Fellowship at the
University of Texas Southwestern. She offers cancer risk assessments,
screenings for high-risk patients, and the latest in breast conserving
surgeries for women and men diagnosed with breast cancer.
Dr. McWhite’s presence in Suite 201 of the Barrett Medical Office
Building is a valuable initial component to the future Atlantic General
Hospital Women’s Health Center, which will include a wide array
of women’s services including gynecology, nutritional guidance and
holistic health treatments.

new office location, patients and health care providers are asked to call
About the James G. Barrett Medical Office Building
The Atlantic General Hospital Corporation built the Barrett Medical Office
Building to encourage healthcare providers to open their practices in
the area and to provide patients with a convenient location for a variety
of outpatient services.
Currently, the Barrett Medical Office Building houses a Coastal Drug HealthMart
and Coffee Beanery, Chesapeake Eye Center, and Dr. McWhite’s breast
care services practice. In coming months, Atlantic General Hospital’s
new Wound Care Center, Inc. and Endoscopy Center will open, as will the
new office location for Neurological Associates.
