Burtonsville Family Health, LLC is a premiere Nurse Practitioner led primary care practice that blends a holistic approach with modern medicine for your whole family. By looking at the body as a whole and not each organ individually, we can treat the root of the problem, and not just put a band-aid on symptoms. We aim to educate and arm you with the knowledge to take the best care of yourself, so you can manage your health between visits with confidence. Nurse Practitioners believe in the prevention of disease and focus on promoting health versus the medical model of curing alone. We will not give you a pill and send you on your way. We will create a plan, give you expectations, written instructions and will answer any of your questions. You will be encouraged to participate in the planning, and will feel motivated to act. A healthy and energized you is achievable!
Every day, I learn new things. I learn how to improve my life, and ways to share that with you. I believe that by taking care of myself, I can inspire you to do the same. I spent about twelve years working as a Critical Care Registered Nurse largely in the Cardiovascular Surgical Intensive Care Unit providing care to the sickest people at the end of their chronic disease process. I was motivated to help people before they ever get that sick, by getting my Master of Science in Nursing from Bowie State University, and then board certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner by the nationally recognized American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) in 2013. Initially, I worked with a Family Physician in Burtonsville, MD and started on my own in independent practice on January 19, 2016. As a Family Nurse Practitioner, my goal is for you to be in your best health, avoid surgery and hospitalizations, with as little pharmaceuticals or even no medication at all.
Personally, I have a supportive husband, and two wonderful sons that are sweet, funny, and keep me on my toes. We love to see the world by traveling, and know how important it is to understand there is a world of cultures different from our own. I believe that experience is more important than stuff. I am a PADI certified open-water diver and try to scuba dive when I can. My last dive was between the North American and European tectonic plates in Silfra, Iceland. I also enjoy water skiing and wake boarding and bicycling. As important as exercise is to mental well-being and a variety of health conditions, I believe it should be enjoyable. I am also certified through the Athletics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA) and teach a weekly Spin class (indoor cycling) at my local gym in Laurel, MD (come check me out, every Saturday morning at 8 AM, free weekly pass available: http://www.sportfitclubs.com/ ). See my blog to find out more about me and what I’m up to.
It is my privilege to care for you and your family, as I know you have choices. I treat each person with respect, no matter your background, education level, or ethnicity. I hope you would consider me to be your practitioner, and you that you will be wowed by the care you receive.
Veronica Williams, affectionately known as “Roni” enjoys coming to work and performing her duties as part-time front desk receptionist. She has an administrative background and retired after completing many years of dedicated service in the federal government and private sector. Roni happily considers herself these days as “semi-retired” and feels blessed to be a part of such an awesome group at Burtonsville Family Health. She also says it’s icing on the cake to be able to continue doing what she loves. She looks forward to learning new things and tackling whatever challenges the day brings, but she especially enjoys meeting and greeting the patients and others that visit the office.
