Dr. Orlantha Whitehair joined Gila River Health Care in 2009.  She is a member of the Navajo Nation and has a special interest in the diseases common to Native American children.  She is always highly sought after by our patients because she takes the extra time to make sure each patient is fully educated about their disease and the plan for management, and to answer all their questions.  

Ratings and Reviews

Dr. Whitehair is very easy to understand and really cares for her patients. She knew my medical history and listened very well when I told her my problems. She is very knowledgeable and a great doctor. I would recommend her to any of my friends or family members without hesitation.

Dr. Whitehair is always concerned about the health of my children. She knows them by name and calls me up after the clinic is closed to check on them when they are sick.
