Dr. Jai H Gilliam has the following 2 specialties
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.
- 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.

I took my mom to an appointment to establish Dr. William as her primary care doctor. She has MS and Crohns disease, and he's the only doctor who has taken the initiative to ask her what symptoms she experiences with each disease. He really wanted to know everything about her health, not just what she wanted or needed to discuss that day. I'm very impressed! The only complaint I had was he was running about an hour behind and no one told us. The people at the front desk we're supposed to but didn't, so we figured it out the hard way. However, he was very apologetic once he came into the room.
Dr Gilliam is one of those doctors you wish you could always have. Being a first time mother, I had no idea what to expect with a child. The illness', the check-ups, the immunizations... Boy there is a lot to remember when raising a well child. Dr. Gilliam made myself and my daughters father feel like we were actually doing alright. He updated us as to her percentiles, how she was sounding, the simple way to take care of children. I especially loved that he let me know how most of these illnesses come on. Every time, he was spot on as to something we had been doing and ALWAYS treated her accordingly.. I love that he caller her Miss R***!! It's so cute. He is very patient with children and parents alike. Dr. Gilliam always has this tone to his voice that is just reassuring. I still drive 70 miles to see him when an appointment comes up.
