Dr. Williams is always pleasant and easy to talk to. She listens to me, the mom, and engages my daughter in an easy going manner.

February 23, 2017

The wait for the doctor was over an hour. No explanation was given not did anyone check on us. On the positive side the doctor spent a lot of time with us answering our questions and was not rushed.

really love Dr Williams and her way to provide calm awareness to the future as my child has to shift to being mindful of her own bodies needs as it relates to her medical condition

February 02, 2017

I appreciate the time that Dr. Williams spent with my daughter and myself. She was knowledgeable and suggested some treatments to try before putting her on a lot of meds. She was courteous and respectful and I would definitely recommend her to others.

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!

We were pleased overall with the experience.

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.

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.

December 09, 2016

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!
