Dr. Williams provides outpatient primary care for established patients by appointment as well as walk-in care on a rotational basis.
According to WMCHC Executive Director Frederick Jackson, “Dr. Williams’ clinical skill and compassionate approach to patient care make her an excellent addition to our Hamlin facility.”
Born and raised in NEPA’s mid-valley region, Dr. Williams is a graduate of the University of Scranton. She earned her Medical Degree from Hahnemann Medical School, Philadelphia, PA.
