I scheduled an appointment after being a little put-off by my primary doctor's lack of followup, wait time for appointmentsand constant rescheduling. Dr. Williams was a breath of fresh air! This is my new doctor.

My daughter went here for a physical to get her school forms completed. I have very mixed feelings. Office visit was fine and my daughter had no complaints. We got a call a few days later advising that my daughter has allergies (known) and is anemic (unknown). I was impressed that this physical was so thorough and then the bill came in the mail showing the breakdown of what was billed our insurance company. The number of tests done seemed excessive and the costs were exorbitant. I guess every new patient gets such exhaustive bloodwork done? Overall I am glad to know about the anemia, happy to have gotten the school forms completed quickly and so grateful for our insurance because if I was being asked to pay any part of the bill I saw I might die from shock.

the fact that there were pillows on the patient beds show that she put a lot of thought into creating a practice that makes her patients feel comfortable and at home. The physicians were all very genuine and nice and interpersonal. I really felt welcome, and the receptionist was very helpful and knowledgable.

Dr Williams office visit was a very enjoyable experience. Her communication skills were excellent and she demonstrated the definition of a doctor (teacher). I was very impressed with her knowledge and how she explained everything to me. I found an excellent doctor to take care of my medical needs.

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' 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 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.
