I knew Dr Diana Williamson she is and was a kind and caring physcian. I worked with her back in the mid ninties and she was an outstanding physcian who cared for HIV/AIDS patients and poor minority patients. Her charecter and personality was not the type that this article suggest of a drug dealer. If Dr Williamson is guilty it could only be that she guilty was trying to help someone. She probably was set up and it is most unforunate to lose such a leading figure in our community.
