My son has P.T.S.Dr. and is very anxious around doctors and the hospital. Everyone was kind and patient. Dr. Williams was kind and patient with him!

January 11, 2017

The pediatric neurology division has been a joy to work with all these years. I am seriously disappointed that my son turns 21 this year and will no longer be able to work with UPMC because I have Highmark insurance. I will truly miss working with the UPMC group and if the rules change, please let me know so I can return to your group.

We were pleased overall with the experience.

other then the long wait time to see Dr Williams our visit was amazing. She was very good with my daughter talking directly to her and explaining everything she was going as she went. I would strongly recommend her to any on that needs a pediatric neurologist to her.

Extremely pleased with physician. She never had seen my daughter. She listened!!!!!! She also accepted us even though the computer had cancelled out appointment without notifying us. I appreciated the entire staff's efforts and care. My daughter needed a medication change. If we can not see Dr. Safier, we will definitely be using Dr. Williams again.

Dr. Williams and her staff are so nice and caring!

October 28, 2016

Dr. Williams really took the time to explain everything related to my daughter's condition. She also ordered follow up testing and addressed concerns before I even voiced the concerns. She was so thorough in her explanations and care for my daughter, that when I left, I felt any questions I could have had were answered. I so appreciated her care and concern regarding my daughter.

I know that Dr. Williams often runs late on appointments, but that's is because she takes time with patients and families and does not make you feel rushed. it is hard to get an appointment with her or anyone in neurology, but at least you know when she sees you she is going to answer all of your questions and concerns. she is very comforting.
