    Our Physicians

Henry J. Williams M.D.

Dr. Williams was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. He attended medical school in Arizona and then moved to the Seattle area in 1978. His driving force is to offer quality medicine and to be able to communicate with people. He believes very strongly that medicine is not just the provider doing the healing, but that it has to be an equal partnership between the patient, the provider and the location of healing, and that those are all very important aspects of medicine. "Unless the patient understands what is going on, and is involved directly, they are not going to get better. You have to treat people like yourself. Everyone has a responsibility not just to make our own lives better, but to make our society better. I'm very fortunate that medicine allows me an opportunity to make a difference in society."

Dr. Williams is married with 2 grown daughters. He enjoys teaching, reading, exercising, wood working, and vacationing in Hawaii.

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."
