KELLY WILLIAMS 8X10I specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy.  I also enjoy treating a broad range of other neurological diseases in my practice.  My goal is to provide the best care in evaluation and diagnosis, and to partner with patients in treatment and management of their conditions.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband and young daughter, as well as hiking and travel.
