Dr. Williams is an excellent, experienced, caring surgeon. I've had left and right shoulder replacements with excellent results from both surgeries. I would recommend him unequivocally.

I've given Dr. Williams 5 starts, and I do not take that lightly. I have been unfortunately enough to have seen MANY orthopedic surgeons in my life so far and I really believe Dr. Williams is one of the best. He takes to the time to explain the issues/risks/benefits and takes the time to vet any concerns. His support staff is fantastic as well. The results I've see far exceed expectations.
