in Pocatello, ID |
I moved to ID after having surgery in another state. All I needed was a doctor so if something serious happened I can see her. I was told by her staff that she would be able to take me as a patient. While I was having my records sent over to her office I became a little sick with pouchitis. After a week of not having any of my calls returned, an appointment was set for two weeks down the road. The next day they called and told me that I was no longer welcomed to see the doctor. Thanks

Dr. Williams' Care Philosophy

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.
