Teresa M. Williams, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I am a Mayo Clinic trained, board certified, internal medicine physician who is experienced in patient centered primary care. In addition to managing health problems from a holistic perspective, I am committed to personalized, quality patient care with a focus on health and wellness. I want my patients to have the ability to come to an office which is relaxed, welcoming and positive, where I can be fully focused on their health care needs. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice I will be available to my patients when they need me for as long as they need me. Together we will formulate a personalized long term health care plan with goals corresponding with their unique needs. I aspire to remain knowledgeable of cutting edge medicine and to being the best doctor I can be. I am committed to helping patients navigate the ever changing health care system and coordinating care with their specialists and hospitalists.

I have partnered with MDVIP to give the people of Robertson County, and the surrounding areas, the opportunity to participate in a medical practice, similar to a concierge practice, which promotes the goals of the personalized, quality health care we all want. I am very excited about MDVIP’s approach which has the comprehensive Annual Wellness Exam and patient-physician relationship at its cornerstone. We all realize the importance of a healthy body, mind and spirit and I think the journey to getting there can be challenging, fun and exciting.
