Dorothy A. O. White-Williams, MD

Dorothy A. O. White-Williams, MD, a physician with Greater Atlanta Family Healthcare

My mission is to partner with patients to help improve their overall well-being. I’ve come to realize that I can learn a lot from patients, and I enjoy the relationships developed over time – with them as individuals and with their families.

With each person who comes into my office, I become fully involved with their personal story and life. I listen intently and try to comfort them and let them know that I truly care. Listening to patients and being able to engage them is one of my strengths as a physician. I treat all patients with the same respect and compassion – regardless of their socioeconomic or cultural background. But my heart still aches sometimes as I discover the difficulties some patients have.

I enjoy having the ability to treat so many different kinds of people of all ages with all types of illnesses, and I appreciate being an integral part of the patients’ healthcare team. I look forward to continuing to build my medical knowledge so I can help my patients even more.
