Specialties

Dr. Robert A Williams has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

The Best in Phoenix

I have been seeing Dr. Williams many years and would not trust anyone else with my mental health. He is extremely knowledgeable and will explain your condition to you thoroughly and understandably. He also considers all your conditions/issues and all options when prescribing drugs. He provides individualized care and is without a doubt one of the kindest, most caring doctors I've ever seen. His staff is also friendly and helpful. This is a physician worthy of your trust.

Four Stars

Dr Williams is what one would call a scholarly doctor. He quotes passages from his book "Brain Basics" and other books. He has an unexplained fear of Medicare and will not take anyone on Medicare even if you have been with him for years. I found out a way to get around it and part of the issue was his staff which leaves a lot to be desired. I am a very proactive person, so for me Dr Williams is perfect. Ii come in with a list of questions and reference material. He isn't good for just anyone YOu need to bring someone with you to advocate for you. I have been seeing Dr Williams for many years and for me he is perfect. He is very caring, a bit eccentric but in the end, a good problem solver and not influenced my money

He saved me...

After a psychiatric evaluation, Dr. Williams found the right meds- the first time- to knock out my depression, enabling me to go back to work. Thanks, Dr. Williams! He's caring and a very compassionate person, and a very unique person as well.

Meet the Wizard!

Dr. Williams is the best Psychiatrist I have ever known (and I've known a bunch.) He now sees my wife and one of my kids and I recommend him every chance I get. He's atypical in that he spends a great deal of time studying the problem and he does not just try to maximize his fees by seeing you unnecessarily.I love this doctor! If you can get in to see him, do yourself a favor and do it!
