Stephen White, Medical Director

DVM, DABVP

Dr. Steve White joined Fairway Animal Hospital in 1985 after receiving his D.V.M from Kansas State University. He grew up in Kansas City, and attended Rockhurst High School, where he made his decision to pursue veterinary medicine as a career. As a lifelong resident of Kansas City he felt fortunate to be able to return to his hometown and join the well-respected Fairway Animal Hospital practice. In 1992, he attained his certification as a Diplomat of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners. He is also a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), KVMA, KCVMA, and the American Animal Hospital Association.

Dr. White met his wife, Lisa in 1988. Shortly after they met, Lisa brought Bridget, her long haired dachshund to him for puppy shots. Lisa thought that since Bridget approved of Steve, he must be a pretty good guy. A year and a half later, Steve and Lisa were married and began to raise a family. They have two daughters, Kimberly and Kathryn; both are graduates of Benedictine college. Kimberly is a Child Life Specialist at Children’s Mercy Hospital and Kathryn is a nurse. Lisa’s vocation as wife and mother continues to be the joy of her life second only to her Catholic faith.

During his free time, Steve enjoys being with his family, woodworking, fly fishing, reading and studying scripture and theology. He was ordained in June 2017 as a deacon in the Catholic Church for the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas and serves in their home parish of Cure’ of Ars.
