    I am a veteran. I was scheduled through the VA Choice program to be treated by Dr. Williams. . This appointment had been scheduled at least 30 days out with VA. I had received several calls from both the VA & Dr. William's office as reminders. However, Less than 8 business hours before my appointment, his office called to tell me they decided not to see me because they were no longer accepting Veteran's payments through Health NET, (VA payment system). Hope no other VETS have delayed treatment..

    Incredibly easy experience!! I had heard horror stories about the 'prep' drink and procedure.. the prep was VERY easy to drink. Only a small amount and did not taste bad at all!! Procedure was seamless and all the staff that I encountered were obviously well trained and precise. I was at ease and comfortable the entire time. Dr. Williams is a happy, pleasant person to talk to and is the best at what he does. There is no other place I would go to have this procedure done in the future. Thanks!

    My husband had his appointment for an endoscopy with Dr. Williams. The staff as well as Dr. Williams were over the top excellent. We were shocked when Dr. Williams called my husband him self on Easter Sunday to deliver the goods news on my husbands biopsy's. My Doctor had me come into the office and charged the expensive office visit to inform me that they had not yet received my results. I will certainly be using Dr. Williams myself going forward for any check ups I need myself.

    Excellent care! I would highly recommend Dr Williams and his staff for your colonoscopy. Very little wait time and was actually an enjoyable experience.
