Doctor Williams is a great doctor. With her help, I have become a Division 1 runner. She has put a lot of personal time and expertise into getting and keeping me healthy so that I can train at a high level.
I first saw Doctor Williams about one year ago. My coach knew something was wrong because I wasn't as fast as he thought I should be. On my very first appointment with Doctor Williams, she told me that I only breathed out of one lung and that I ran with my back, not my butt. I left, that day, with exercises to do and orders to get my iron levels checked.
Three weeks after first seeing Doctor Williams, my 1,600 time went from 5:23 to 5:11 (a 12 second PR) and my 3,200 time went from 11:55 to 11:38 (a 17 second PR) at my district track meet. I kept getting faster each meet, and five weeks after my first visit with her, I placed fourth in both the 1,600 (5:09) and the 3,200 (11:32) at the State Championships. Without Doctor Williams I would not have been All-State.
Over the winter I strained my hamstring. She turned the usual six to eight week recovery period into three weeks. She gave me back my senior track season.
Doctor Williams made a very personal connection to me and follows all my progress. She texts me to ask how I'm doing and has always been there for me when I have questions. She makes special trips to her office if I need to see her or if I need treatments. Doctor Williams even came to watch me race at the Festival of Miles.
After every appointment with Doctor Williams, I leave feeling happy and confident that she is making me faster. You can tell that she loves her job and that she goes the extra mile to figure out how best to help her patients.
One year after seeing Doctor Williams, I signed to run cross country and track with Kansas State. I am super excited and I could not have done it without her. Thank you Doctor Williams!
