Phelps Welcomes Dr. Dan Williams

· In the News ·

Daniel Williams, MD, anesthesiologist and pain management specialist, now offers a pain clinic throughout the month at Phelps Memorial Health Center. His outstanding experience with the community of Holdrege and the Phelps Memorial Team is what drew him to begin his rural outreach clinic.

“I came to Holdrege to cover for a fellow physician and just really liked it here. Everyone is so hard working and they truly care about their patients. They treat every patient as if they were a member of their own family. What we do here goes way beyond medicine. That is the atmosphere in which I want to work,” stated Dr. Williams.

Dr. Williams provides services to patients with spine and back issues while working closely with Dr. Henry Fabian, Jr., to identify the pain’s origin so the proper diagnosis can be made. While his focus is primarily on providing a high-quality spine program, he also provides additional services including joint injection and chronic headaches.

“When patients come to me, they are really suffering from an extraordinary level of pain. It’s not uncommon for patients to rate their pain at an 8 or 9 on a 10-point scale. When I have patients rate their post-procedure pain at zero, it is a great feeling,” he stated, “just the other day, one of my patients called me over to his room. He shook my hand and thanked me because he had not felt that great in years.”

Native to Colorado, Dr. Williams grew up on the slopes of Steamboat as a ski jumper and cross-country ski racer. After high school, he moved to Switzerland to train with the Swiss Ski Team. At the age of 25, he and his future wife moved back to the United States where he began his undergraduate studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder. He attended medical school in Denver; residency at Gundersen Medical Foundation in Wisconsin; and, anesthesiology at the University of Colorado Anshutz Medical Campus. Now in his free time, Dr. Williams enjoys racing cars!
