About Us


Our Physicians

Richard A. Kaner M.D.

Dr. Kaner was born in San Diego, CA but has lived on the Eastside since 1963. He went to school at the University of Washington and has been practicing Internal Medicine in Bellevue since 1987. He believes that healing and maintaining good health is based on a strong partnership between the physician and patient. “One of our most important roles is to communicate with people and educate them both about the myriad of choices they face in trying to manage disease, achieve and maintain good health. My patients are like family and I take their health very seriously. I’m appreciative of the faith and trust my patients have shown in allowing me to be their partner in their healthcare.”

Dr. Kaner is married and lives in Bellevue with his wife. They have 3 sons. He enjoys exercising, golf and traveling.

Dr Mills was born and raised in Lubbock, TX. She attended Texas A&M University for her undergraduate degree and University of Texas Southwestern for medical school.

She has practiced previously in a hospital environment at Overlake Medical Center as an internal medicine hospitalist and also as a palliative care physician.  She joined Bellevue Medical Partners in 2013. She believes in treating each patient with individualized care. “One of the things I enjoy most about my practice at Bellevue Medical Partners is the ability to take the time to treat each person as an individual – to meld the science and evidence-base of medicine with the art of tailoring care to each individual’s needs”.

Dr Mills is an active member of the medical staff at Overlake Medical Center, and is active in professional organizations.  She is passionate about the process of education of both patients and their families as well as colleagues.

Henry J. Williams M.D.

Dr Williams is a board-certified internist and geriatrician who co-founded Bellevue Medical Partners PLLC in 2002.  He has been driven by a desire to create a place of healing where the physician partners with their patient to empower them to improve and maintain their health.

Maintaining a constant focus on the ever-changing body of medical knowledge, Dr Williams has emerged as a trusted leader and mentor in the Eastside medical community.  After 37 years of practice and too many “Top Doctor”, “Best Doctor”, and “Best Teacher” awards to list, Dr Williams retired in 2016.

We still benefit from his expertise when he joins us for academic teaching rounds and medical quality projects.
