Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Williams "As a Family Practitioner I believe in maximizing health benefits through lifestyle changes and using medications only when necessary. By treating the entire family I can better appreciate the potential stressors that can affect a patient's over all well-being. I also prefer to see my patients both when they are sick and well, as this improves continuity of care. My staff and I work hard to ensure we are available when you need to be seen for an acute visit."

Patient Comments (1)
Horrible! Attitude from Heck! Snooty! Never listens to you &when she actually listens, she tells you that's NOT what your feeling!Seriously? Like you have ESP&can feel my pain!? Found out that she's former military physician &that say's a ton! Military physicians don't care about soldiers! So how do you expect for her to care about anyone else?! She makes a point to put out their that the only reason she's a physician is because it's good money & she needs to pay the mortgage on the building.
