- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Dr. Williams is an excellent physician. She is conscientious, caring, thorough and personable. She speaks in terms you can understand. She is honest, yet gentle when needed but can also be tough and blunt when required. An earlier reviewer was upset about her suggestion to join The Biggest Loser - I personally feel it is an honest suggestion from someone who understands the difficulty in losing weight and maintaining the weight loss and who also sees day after day the ultimate deadly results of obesity. I, too, have had some tough conversations with Dr. Williams regarding my weight and I know that she would suggest nothing to harm me in any way but only makes suggestions that she feels are useful and productive to my overall health. I personally appreciate her concern for my health and recognize her frustration with me in not losing the weight that I should that ultimately would provide me with a better quality of life. Dr. Williams also treats my daughter who is 19 months old. She is excellent with children! She is willing to listen to my concerns. She doesn't over diagnose or over medicate. She is conscious of my concerns over vaccinations and works with me in administering the vaccinations in a way that I am comfortable with. I highly recommend Dr. Williams to anyone looking for a PCP.
