Simon-Williamson Clinic is comprised of 36 physicians, mostly primary care (Internal Medicine, Family Practice, and Pediatrics) with a number of other medical and surgical subspecialties. With so many specialties under one roof, we are able to efficiently coordinate your care. We maintain collegial relationships with other primary care physicians and specialists who may be participating in your care.


Founded in 1935 in north Birmingham, Simon-Williamson Clinic, P.C. is named after two founding visionaries, Harold E. Simon, MD and Byrn Williamson, MD. In addition to forming Birmingham's first group practice, the doctors initiated a philosophy expressed as "not just treating the sick, but caring for people." In 1975, SWC moved from Norwood to the campus of Princton Baptist and have been based there for over 40 years. Over the years, despite the changes that have taken place in medicine, the clinic has remained committed to the philosophy and purpose of "service to people." After continued growth, we now consist of 36 physicians in 14 specialties. In 2007, the Clinic moved into a new 113,000 square foot building on the Baptist Princeton campus and have since been able to expand the range of medical services that we provide.

Health Screening
We perform many other screening and diagnostic tests, such as EKGs, cardiac monitoring, pulmonary function, and TB skin testing, and give injections of medications and immunizations.

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapists apply research and proven techniques to help people get back in motion. All Physical Therapists are required to receive a graduate degree – either a master's degree or a clinical doctorate – from an accredited Physical Therapist program before taking the national licensure examination that allows them to practice. State licensure is required in each state in which a Physical Therapist practices. They are trusted health care professionals with extensive clinical experience who examine, diagnose, and then prevent or treat conditions that limit the body's ability to move and function in daily life.

Our physical therapists can help you with osteoarthritis of most joints, acute and chronic neck and back pain, rotator cuff injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, and rehabilitation from joint replacements or strokes, and much, much more. Ask your physician whether PT would be appropriate for you.

Information Technology

We have been using fully electronic (computerized) medical records for years. We even provide wireless internet access for our visitors. Ask us about signing up for the Patient Portal for secure and encrypted access to your health information and email communication with your SWC providers.

In no particular order I want to express my sincere thanks to the staff for the empathy, patience, and compassion they have selflessly extended to their patients during some of our most difficult days. What you do isn't easy nor is it taken for granted. It is a true calling that God placed on your hearts and I like so many others would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU! It's people like you that make it easier for people like me to keep fighting."
