I have taken all of my dogs to Dr. Williams and always highly recommend her to all my friends and clients. As a holistic practitioner myself, I prefer holistic treatment when possible and she does chiropractic, acupuncture and herbal medicine as well as traditional. She is highly knowledgable about nutrition and will recommend diets that are much more palatable and much more nutritious than what traditional vets recommend. She also avoids recommending unnecessary tests and treatments. Her fees are quite reasonable and much lower for certain treatments than I have paid at other vets. (Example...$20.00 for an injectable glucosamine that I paid $53.00 for at another office) She prefers the gentlest possible treatments for any condition. I do not vaccinate my older pets for everything under the sun and she avoids over-vaccinating. Interestingly, the atmosphere is so calm there that animals tend to be very calm for their treatments, and they all seem friendly to one another. She is San Antonio's Dr. Dolittle!
There are some disadvantages, one being that she has no xray equipment and has to refer patients to another vet that she works with for certain tests. However, I have experienced this also, and still have paid lower than normal fees for the work. She will also make house calls but of course must charge extra for that.
I know there are many excellent caring vets in San Antonio, and I have used, and still sometimes use their services when necessary, such as xrays and ultrasounds, but Dr. Maria Williams is at the top of my list.
Pros: Wonderful caring vet
Cons: Small office but she is planning a move
