A Message From Jim Williams, MD
I have practiced medicine here in Washington, D.C., for over 15 years and during this time I have had the privilege of caring for many of you and your families. It has been such an honor to be your physician and share in your quest for a healthy, active life.
As you know from personal experience, our healthcare system is becoming extremely complex. From my perspective as an experienced physician, the many changes underway in healthcare will continue to affect our relationship and my ability to provide the highest standard of care to you, my patients. After much reflection and soul-searching, I have decided that I do not want to compromise my diligent attention to your individual care.
Therefore, I am going to devote the next phase of my medical career to providing comprehensive care for a smaller group of patients, who want to achieve the best possible health through the next decades of their lives. There is good scientific documentation that preventive medicine and attention to wellness lead to longer, more active and vigorous lives.
I will work diligently with you to continue to make the next segment of your life as healthy as possible. Whether you are in your 30’s, 80’s or anywhere in between, I want you to achieve the best possible health and lifestyle that you can.
I hope that you will join me in this new program for assured, comprehensive healthcare. If you do, you will have my careful and devoted attention to your personal wellness in a less hectic and more personalized medical practice. Every year we will perform a thorough executive physical to establish your health baseline and medical goals for a wellness program. We will sit down and monitor your progress towards these goals. If you are not making progress, then together we will re-design your program of care, and I will do everything in my power to move you toward these goals. Together, we will strive for a proactive approach to keep you healthy.
I will dedicate my skills and knowledge in Family Medicine to your quest for optimum health and happiness. I hope you will join me on this exciting journey.
