Editor Note: Anne Williams is now assosiated with the Chiro-Medical
Group in San Francisco.
I tried to contact Dr. Anne Williams in Montclair after someone
recommmended her; her number has been disconnected. Does
anyone know if she still practices? Does anyone have somebody
they'd like to recommend? I liked the idea of a smart and
concerned MD with an inquisitive/critical look at Western
Medicine, and who could practice acupuncture.
She was experiencing some health problems of her own and decided
to shut down her (solo) practice in Montclair. She was hoping to
take a break and then eventually join someone else's group
practice, but I haven't heard yet that she has. Hope others have
a more recent update -- I haven't found another doc who I like
nearly as much!
You are correct, Dr. Williams is no longer practicing in Montclair. We got a
letter from her last year. She was going to take sometime off and then decide
where her next road will lead her. Would love to have her back in Montclair,
Dr. Williams closed her practice last summer. We switched to Dr. Gjeltema in
Albany and have been happy so far. Former Dr. Williams Patient
Re: Holistic Doctors (Feb 2003)
I switched to Dr. Anne Williams about six months ago, and like her very much.
She really listened to my catalog of random/annoying health issues and
(something my previous Dr. didn't) and seemed genuinely interested in finding
out what could be causing them. She's obviously very open to ''complimentary''
therapies, such as Chinese herbs, but also didn't hesitate to prescribe
pharmaceuticals for my allergies and mild depression. Dr. Williams'
practice is a
small one and she seems to allot plenty of time for each appointment, so
felt the get-'em-in, get-'em-out-fast pressure
that's common at larger practices. Good luck with your decision!
Does anyone have anything to say -- either positive or
negative -- about Dr. Anne Williams in Montclair? Two years
after moving to the East Bay, I'm looking for a doctor I
don't have to cross a bridge to see, and Dr. Williams'
office would be very convenient. I checked the web site for
previous postings, but there was nothing on her there. Any
feedback would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Dr. Williams is trained in both Western medicine and
acupuncture. She has more confidence in the former, but I
have seen her for the latter. She's very down-to-earth and
open about her thinking about any health issues. She wants
to integrate the two approaches in her treatment. I've also
found her to be generous with her time and have had no
problems scheduling last-minute appointments.
If you want a really authoritative person, though, she might
not be for you. She dwells on the ambiguities and
contradictions in medicine, which I actually find
interesting, but others might find disconcerting.
