Sunhee Williams completed a two-year naturopathic oncology residency at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) at Midwestern Regional Medical Center in October 2011 before becoming a naturopathic oncology provider at the hospital. Williams, who is also a licensed acupuncturist, says the core values of CTCA resonated with her and drew her to the organization.
"Patients know that we have their best interest at heart," she notes. "It is this commitment, ‘constantly striving for the excellence in quality of care,’ that continues to inspire everyone in our community.”
Williams says of the unique model of care at CTCA, “The integrated teams of specialists work together to provide current, evidenced-based treatment options for patients.”
Williams received a bachelor of science degree in biology with a concentration in microbiology from Methodist University. She also earned a master’s degree in acupuncture and a doctorate degree in naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University.
She is a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians and a Certified Diplomat of the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
Williams values the importance of being involved in the community. Before pursuing studies and a career in naturopathic medicine, she served in the U.S Army. She has also participated in community service projects assisting new mothers and feeding the homeless, and has worked with non-profit organizations in outreach ministries. The Korean-born naturopathic clinician speaks the language fluently and has worked as a medical interpreter.
Williams and her husband have two children. She loves spending time with her family, drawing and singing. In addition, she enjoys the adventure of visiting new places.
