Cyd Charisse Williams, MD
"Discovering the root of the problem, treating the cause, and getting to the heart of the issue."
Dr. Cyd Charisse Williams, MD, has been in the medical field practicing medicine for 25 years. Her knowledge, care for her patient’s,
and passion for her work is what creates a top of the line, one-on-one experience that is unlike any traditional medical office. Dr. Williams practices with Functional Medicine, meaning she gets to the underlying cause of your medical concerns, instead of chasing the symptoms— getting to the heart of the issue.
Dr. Cyd Charisse Williams’ goal is to give you a healthspan, not just a lifespan. Functional medicine gets to the underlying cause of your medical concerns ie. the “thing” behind the “thing” behind the “thing” and provides personalized medical care designed just for you. Dr. Williams takes pride in providing the community with the highest quality functional medicine care. If you have constipation, your brain is failing, if you have hypertension, your brain is failing, if you have parkinson's disease, your brain is failing- remember your brain controls everything, and when the brain fails, everything it controls fails as well. At Wellness by Cyd Charisse, M.D., you will receive timely and comprehensive care of your entire body.
Dr. Williams has worked with many athletes ranging from children, weekend warriors to professional athletes. Dr. Williams traveled with the USA Track and Field team to four World Championships as their team Physician taking care of both Olympic and Junior-Olympic caliber athletes. She treats each of her patient’s with the same care and attention. Her goal for the athlete is to not only address the injury and make the specific corrections but have them competing at their full potential again. Beyond finding and correcting the injury, she educates her patient’s on how to enhance the body function to help prevent re-injury. Dr. Williams is perfectly suited to help you recover from any sports, recreational or job-related injury. Dr. Williams will not just focus on an injury but rather she can have all your body systems working optimally. Whether you are an athlete, parent of an athlete, weekend warrior or just trying to stay in shape, you can learn how to prevent injury by enhancing the body’s function.
Dr. Williams provides one-on-one care throughout the entire recovery phase of your injury. In fact, she will formulate a Rehab program and work closely with your personal trainer and/or coach to make sure you receive the best care while you recover from your injury. If needed, she can develop an exercise program uniquely designed for you. Dr. Williams will outline a return-to-sport schedule to ensure maximum healing and recovery so that chances of re-injury are minimized. Recovery from any injury is important, but what is more important is how you develop the injury. When Dr. Williams determines the precise cause of your injury, she will use that information to correct any underlying problems, which is another way to minimize re-injury. Dr. Williams' experience has taught her to treat the whole athlete and integrate all modalities of care to maximize each athlete’s, parent of athlete or weekend warrior's potential.
