Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Williams "Health care has changed since I started medical school over 33 years ago. Physician and patient's expectations have also changed. The one aspect of my practice which has not changed and I hope will not change in the future is the patient-physician relationship. I like to spend time on the first patient visit getting to know that person and to develop a mutual respect for each other. The patient knows my goal is to offer treatment which will benefit them and communicate to them why I am making that specific recommendation. "
