Service was quick and the staff at Dr. Williams' office addressed my concerns. I was seen by a professional other than Dr. Williams, but I didn't mind because I came in for a minor issue. I would visit this practice again. I was happy to learn that they have early hours, which is very convenient for me.

She was nice and thorough but it took three days to call in a script that was to hold me over for 3-4 days before my specialist appointment which basically means I got the script the day before my specialist appt! . Her staff kept telling me that she was going to call it in as soon as she had a second for three days and this is all after she told me personally after asking for the script that she would call it in within the hour! It was too much of phone tag and hassle for this. I was even told to "check my pharmacy" in a VERY rude and nasty way from one of her staff after the second day and I was at the pharmacy and they didn't have it. I even waited at the pharmacy for hours since I had to have someone give me a ride there and also bc they assured it would be there very soon! Then after calling back at 3:55 the phones cut off to the recording bc they close at 4! I'm a little shocked the whole office shuts down at 4 but that's really not that big of an issue. Smh. I then had to leave a voicemail on the doctors machine asking to call me back about what was going on. My pharmacy then called me the next morning telling me it was in and got NO call about it being there. They even told me that if I really needed the medicine right away and they were closed to leave a voicemail for the doctor on call which I did and it said the doctor on call would respond promptly. I had NO CALL! The only good thing about anything really is that she does have a good personality and does seem to care.

Like most doctors anymore, routine appointments are supported by interns (with her as backup), but when something out of the ordinary occurs, she is right in there. The Metro and public parking nearby makes getting there easy as well.

Dr. Williams failed to inquire about my symptomology and was very dismissive of my concerns. The nurse, Erica was very pleasant and tended to my needs more readily than Dr. Williams. Though I'm sure Dr. Williams is a very busy physician, she needs to do better with effectively listening to her patients as I witnessed a similar encounter with another patient that was seen before me.

If you like a Dr that is straight to the point and no nonsense. Then this is the ideal doctor for you. If you want a person that shows empathy or more conversation about your issues than this is not your ideal doctor. I like her straight forwardness and the staff was very pleasant and there was no wait time.

Dr. Williams' office uses med students who are training to be doctors. I've been to her office about 8 times in 2 years, and I have only ever actually seen Dr. Williams once. If you want to develop a relationship with your GP, this is not the place for you. If you don't mind seeing a different care giver each time you visit, then you'll get that at her practice.

Dr. Williams is my primary care physician and continues to be compassionate and patient each time I have a visit with her. I would urge patients to be very clear about what you're going in to address because she sees several patients on any given day and her time is limited. Also, it should be noted that she trains residents so I think that speaks to her level of knowledge.

She seems to be very knowledgable but she could do a little better with being more personable and friendly! I felt hurried along and generically diagnosed.

Sometimes you just want to feel appreciated as a human being, not just another body. Dr Shelley made me feel like another body in her daily quota. I'm not sure if she enjoys her job or maybe she's just going through the motions. Regardless, I don't see myself returning. Also, the office is outdated and doesn't provide much privacy.

I rarely have time to leave reviews, but I felt the need to do so after my appointment with Dr. Williams today. For the first time in a long time, I felt like the doctor was actually actively listening to me. I think will continue to see her as my primary care physician. I have already scheduled a follow-up appointment with her to explore other issues. But, I have to give her two thumbs up after today's experience.

From what I've seen on the first visit, Dr. Williams is actually interested in what's going on with you and your health. She has a method of asking questions that I picked up on immediately. (I work in IT, one commonality is asking the right questions in order to diagnose and resolve an issue.) Dr. Williams is invested in her business--she has assistants but isn't running on 'autopilot'. I initially made an appointment in order to get a primary care physician and pick up a prescription, but now I'm hopeful other medical issues will be handled. One more thing: Her employees are knowledgeable, and they know how to draw blood without taking out a vein. That's skill!

Medical assistant who saw me literally pointed at me and motioned me to follow her. She couldn't call me by name because she was on her cellphone? Wth? Then proceeded to ask me the same questions I answered 3 times and write them on a blank sheet of paper.. What was the point of spending ten minutes on a fancy little iPad registration thing? The doctor was nice, the op rooms need updating and she needs a new medical assistant...she didn't even introduce herself so I don't know her name.
