I agree with the reviews of this doctor having anger issues. I too was dropped as a patient on my second visit there. I had gone in to have blood drawn as he had previously requested. The nurse began check-in as if I was there for an office visit, and after I told her I was only there for a blood draw she left, complained to Williams and he came in, told me I was rude to his staff and dropped me as a patient!

Went to him for over two decades and now he dropped me during s medical crisis with zero explanation.

Outstanding MD and great staff. As a new patient, I was impressed and glad we chose Dr. Williams.

I would not recommend Dr. Williams to anyone, because in my personal experience, he has very serious anger management issues. As a patient years ago, I was screamed at, belittled, and humiliated by this hateful man, while his staff lined the hallway outside the room with their arms crossed. As I exited the examination room, hysterically crying, not one of them made eye contact with me or offered any form of assistance. The office staff sure took my insurance co-pay, though.

Medication he prescribed to me was not the same as what I had when I came to him. After the first week, I called and asked to have my medication changed back, unsure of why he changed it in the first place. Was told I would have to come in and get my BP checked before he would change it even though he wrote me 3 months worth. Wanted me to pay again for a mistake he made! He's rude, rushed, and makes you feel uneasy and not taken seriously. I'm not paying deductibles to then be treated poorly

I have Type 2 diabetes and have been with Dr. Williams for about a year. Just prior to running out of insulin needles, I put in a prescription request to have them refilled and the doctor denied it, stating that I needed to come in for an appointment. No appointment was available for a week and a half. When I spoke to one the office staff and told them what had happened, she complained to the doctor, who then dropped me as a patient! Would NOT recommend!
