  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • 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.

  • Neurology

I went to Dr. Williams during my entire time at college and I really enjoyed working with him. He listens to everything you have to say but is very blunt and straight to the point, which I prefer. I was attending nursing school at the time and I really appreciated the involvement he let me have in my care and he valued my own clinical assessment of how I was progressing and changes I felt needed to be made to my care plan.

Avoid at all costs

Dr. Williams was really very insensitive when he evaluated my son. I was under the impression that psychiatrists were supposed to be empathic, but Dr. Williams kept looking at his watch and then had to leave during the appointment, as he kept answering his cell phone. I was so angry at his manner that I almost called his boss.
