Patient Comments (4)

Very caring and actually listens which is almost unheard of for a psychiatrist. Only concern is the wait time which feels very disrespectful as the wait time can be 20 minutes or 2 1/2 hours! However I understand that in getting great service with a nonjudgemental and understanding interaction.

Dr Williams cares about his patients. He is patient. He tries to answer your questions. I feel to be in a trusting environment,someone you can talk to with confidence and feel assured that his heart is at your best interest as a patient.
