in New Rochelle, NY |
He's a great doctor and truly cares. Smart and efficient with a good sense of humor. I couldn't ask for anything more in a doctor.

He is a great doctor. I have been going to see him for years. I have seen 2 other kidney specialists before him, and neither of them ever explained anything about my disease or what I could do for it. My wife was nervous about me taking so many pills so she took me to see Dr. Williams. He took me off most of the medications and I actually feel better without them. My kidneys are even getting a bit better thanks to him. I will never see another kidney doctor.

When I went to see Dr. Williams, I was on 23 different medications and my blood pressure was out of control. He stopped half of them and now my blood pressure is under control. He was good at explaining everything.
in New York, NY |
He is such a genuine person, in addition to being a smart and competent doctor. I felt completely at ease with him. He even got me to open up about personal stuff that I had never told anyone. Unlike other doctors that always seem distracted, when I was in the office with him, it felt like he was totally focused on me.
