Specialties

Dr. Armistead D Williams Jr has the following 3 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Wonderful and Caring!

Dr. Williams has been caring for my father throughout years of Alzheimer's and has helped us immensely. He never rushes us, speaks directly to my father without judgement or disdain. He is beyond wonderful and is up-to-date on latest medication. Can't recommend him highly enough.

Concrete thinker

On the surface dr Williams is a five star. Just don't disagree with what he thinks or says. Unfortunately for me, I cracked the facade. He is very smart but not intelligent. Yes, there's a difference.

Five Stars

Sometimes there is a wait well past the appointment time, but this never concerns me as I know Dr. Williams is treating all of his patients the same way he treats me. I never feel rushed when seeing him and have plenty of time to ask questions and have concerns addressed. He is wonderful - direct, straightforward, caring, and informative.
