Ryan WilliamsChief Medical Officer

Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist

Dr. Williams is a board certified Psychiatrist who joined PrairieCare in 2009. His interests in Pervasive Developmental Disorders and Mental Retardation stem from his work in behavioral analysis at a developmental center prior to entering medical school. Working at PrairieCare has allowed Dr. Williams to continue to work with patients with these conditions as well as provide him the opportunity to treat the full spectrum of mental health issues. The treatment team approach provided at PrairieCare is consistent with his beliefs in the necessity of considering the biological, psychological and social aspects of the child/adolescent and the family in treatment.
