Dr. Robert Williams is a triple boarded physician in Family Practice, Geriatric Medicine, and Palliative Care/Hospice Medicine.  He has been treating patients for over 15 years and has served as Medical Director at 3 different Hospice Organizations, a Palliative Care Consultation Service at a level 1 Trauma Center, multiple Nursing Homes, and currently serves as the Medical Director and Principal Investigator at a Phase 1 Clinical Research Unit working on the cutting edge of medical science.  Dr. Williams has cared for patients in the ICU, the Hospital Wards, Inpatient Acute Rehabilitation, Primary Care, Skilled Nursing Facilities, Assisted Living Facilities, patients’ homes, and in the research environment.  Dr. Williams continues to function as the founding partner of The Center for Patient Advocacy as well as the President and CEO of the “The Physician Advocate.” Dr. Williams’ passion for patients and the community is evidenced by his serving in multiple professional advisory committees, membership on the Colorado Health Ethics Forum board of directors and his service as Vice President of the Dartmouth Alumni Colorado Board of Directors. Dr. Williams is distinct from the mainstream in that he is one of very few voices who advocate for physicians in the punitive environment of healthcare today.  Dr. Williams has been at every level of healthcare delivery and  believes that Physicians should be paid what they are worth, have autonomy in their schedule, and be treated as invaluable professionals.  Without talented, happy and well paid physicians, the rest of society will suffer.
