Specialties

Dr. Kristin D Williams has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

Neuro issues due to pinched nerve and stroke.

Dr Williams is very friendly and take time to discuss my issues. I have never felt I was being rushed due to another patient waiting. She has guided me in other directions that may help resolve my health issue. I am very comfortable talking with her and feel like I have been a long-time patient! I would recommend Dr. Williams to anyone having neuro conditions. Thank you, Dr. Williams for being my doctor!

Misdiagnosed

Dr. Wiliams spent less than 15 minutes with me on a facial pain issue I had been suffering from for 9 months. She did not examine my face but was quickly able to diagnos me with Trigeminal Neuralgia and prescribed a years worth of medicine. I doubted her quick diagnosis and came to find I was clenching my jaw and only needed a mouth guard! I have written a letter to her practice and am very dissapointed.

WORST DOCTOR I HAVE EVER SEEN (and I've seen many)!!!!!

I never write reviews, but felt I had to express how horrible Dr. Williams is after my two visits. I couldn't agree more with the other recent reviewers that she is uncaring, did not do an exam, and made me feel stupid for asking any sort of questions. She has the worst bedside manner I have ever encountered - she had her back to me the whole appointment typing on the computer! When she asked my symptoms and I listed them she just continued typing and never gave me any insight or answers about my symptoms! I'm mad at myself for going back to her the second time! I'm never going back to her again and am searching for a new neurologist!!
