Destin, FL |
I had an excellent experience with Dr. Williamson. I was very nervous going in to my procedure, but he was very calm and walked me through it. I now have amazing vision!
Donaldsonville, LA |
Wouldn't recommend him to anyone. Not happy with the results of my surgeries. Which I would have read the review first. Tells you what he knows you want to hear, but unrealistic results. Rude when you put the facts on the table. I felt I was deceived about surgery outcomes and additional charges for appointment visits after post op time from surgery. Be careful!!!! Ask questions and record conversations, you may need it as backup.

Dr. Charles Williamson is a horrible, condescending, rude man. My appointment with him was the single worst interaction I've ever had with a medical professional. He acted like an egotistical child, and used personal insults to belittle and degrade me during my appointment. I can't speak to his abilities as a surgeon, but I wouldn't let that man cut a sandwich, let alone my eyes. Find a different eye surgeon.
