Best surgeon ever! Great bedside manners. He explains complicated medical terms and procedures so a non medical person can understand. Our family loves him!

Dr. William's is very compassionate and a wonderful surgeon. He replaced my heart valve and I thank him for all he does! Other doctors blew me off, he saw the problem was not in my head.

Dr. Williams corrected two heart valves, as well as two bypasses on my mother.....She recovered quickly and was treated so well by Dr. Williams that I would only recommend him to any friends or family that needed his skills. He is an awesome listener, and communicates with the layman in mind. He is talented and very highly skilled surgeon that we are so lucky to have in our area....thank you Dr. Williams ....

Dr Williams is the VERY Best! I would not trust anyone else as much as I trust him, when it comes to the care of my family. I hope to never need his services, but should I ever require any kind of thoracic surgery, he is the only Doctor I would choose.

Fabulous experience with Dr Williams for my husbands by-pass surgery. He was wonderful....spent a lot of time answering questions, easing our minds and was there when we needed him off hours! It is refreshing to find a dr that still cares that much!
