The White House Doctor

Dr. Connie Mariano is used to breaking barriers, used to shattering the glass ceiling. Born to a Navy father and Filipina mother in the Philippines, Mariano traveled and lived military base to military base, typical of the life of a family in the American armed forces. Along the way she accumulated life experiences and the desire to make her own mark in the world. She has achieved an impressive list of “firsts” that include:

  • the first military woman to become the White House Physician to the President
  • the first woman Director of the White House Medical Unit
  • the first Filipino American in US history to become a Navy Rear Admiral

These amazing achievements are just the tip of the iceberg of accomplishments for this remarkable woman, told with grace, humor and passion in her new book, The White House Doctor: My Patients were Presidents.

A riveting look into the personal lives of our presidents through the eyes of their White House doctor

“Dr. Connie Mariano held many titles during her nine years at the White House.  In each case, Connie was the first to hold the title: the first military woman to become a White House Physician, the first woman Director of the White House Medical Unit, and the first Filipino American in American history to become a Navy Rear Admiral…Throughout my entire presidency, Connie was at my side making sure I stayed healthy.  She was with me during the happy and the sad times, as well as in the historic and private moments.  I trusted her with my life and the lives of my family.”

- former President William Jefferson Clinton
