      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Williams says...

      For the past 20 years, I have made the field of Sports Neurology my life's work. I am actively engaged in researching and developing innovative and effective treatments and technologies that help people recognize symptoms of a neurological injury sooner, so that the work of treating them can happen faster, and with less potential for permanent damage.

      I serve as a neurological medical consultant to local professional sports organizations such as the Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Kings and Los Angeles Sparks. I also assist local college and numerous high schools and youth sports/club athletic teams in this capacity. Living and breathing this field of medicine means striving to educate every athletic population I can about the need for serious attention to neurological injury risks in players at every level of the game.

      My practice is healthy, busy, specialized, varied and unique. I'm thrilled that it found me. And I'm honored to share it with you.

      Dr. Williams' Care Philosophy

      As a board-certified neurologist (certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology), focused on the field of Sports Neurology, my passion is studying and understanding how the brain and nervous system work together to make people perform. In athletics, education and even job performance, our brains are working non-stop, sending signals to our bodies that compel them to act in very specific ways. If you are looking for assistance in evaluation and management in areas of Sports Neurology, pain management, peak performance, expert witness/med-legal services, lectures/public speaking, my practice and professional expertise may be just right for you.

      Dr. Williams says...

      With more than 20 years of experience, my neurology expertise is rooted in passion. Why am I so enthralled by this field? When we understand how and why the brain tells the body to function the way it does, we can actually train it to maximize that performance on and off the field, in and out of the office and throughout the entire course of our lives.

      The principals I apply to the field of Sports Neurology include injury treatment and prevention aspects, as well as techniques to enhance neurological sports performance in the absence of injury. The key is to study and truly understand neurological function across the entire lifespan. Athletic, academic and professional performance can all be improved by consistently monitoring aspects of neurological function and then training, modifying and modulating the brain to maximize that function. In a nutshell, we're teaching the brain to behave optimally, using it as the powerful muscle that it is designed to be. Using state-of-the-art techniques and technologies and applying them to new and exciting ways of assessing and maximizing neurologic performance are how we do it.

      Dr. Williams says...

      No one should have to live a life experiencing chronic pain with no amount of relief. If you are experiencing pain and wish to learn more about neurological treatments, it is highly advisable that you seek the help of a neurologist to determine which treatment is right for you. Sometimes the right neurological treatment can help prevent the need for surgery, depending on the neurological condition. I am a neurologist who is Board Certified by the Board of American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
