Care Philosophy

Effective treatment of breast cancer begins with a proper diagnosis. Breast cancers are as varied as the women affected by them. By examining the many different characteristics of the cancer, our team can size up its personality . Our surgical practice is dedicated to breast health and breast cancer treatment. We help determine the nature of the cancer and select the most appropriate treatment plan from the many advanced options available. We treat patients from the assessment of any abnormalities, such as lumps and cysts, to treating breast cancer. We also work with high-risk patients who have a family history, and need a preemptive plan with risk assessment, and follow-up care. This includes a high-risk clinic, genetic testing, and counseling for patients with increased risk, recognizing that one out of every eight women will experience breast cancer in their lifetime. Our approach is centered around fully-integrated medicine. We provide holistic care, addressing the patient not just physically, but also spiritually and emotionally. Patients, and their caregivers are part of the team and need to be educated about the best treatment options available so they can make the best decisions for their respective situations. A care plan is tailored to individual needs and designed to achieve the highest success rate in treatment.

Patient Comments (2)
in Roanoke, VA |
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in December. During my first visit with Dr. Williams, many of my fears were alleviated. Dr. Williams took the time to be patient and caring. He listened to my concerns and questions and answered them honestly. He explained the risks and benefits of the different options available to deal with my cancer but never forced me into making decisions until I was ready. Dr. Williams did an excellent job with my surgery. You can feel that he is personally invested.

He's never rushed. He listens to everything I talk about. He has always made me feel special. He even takes his time to pray with me before surgery. Who does that?! It's wonderful!! Everything has turned out great with him. Cancer free!!
