My experience was terrible
Dr. Williams diagnosed me with conversion disorder. He was wrong. I have increased intracranial pressure and a post viral illness that causes fatigue and headaches, along with another condition. There was proof that I had increased pressure (spinal tap). He didn’t listen to me at all and seemed to just want money. To make it worse, he was extremely unprofessional and would often tell me that I was attractive or feisty. He told me that I would be raped in college. I finally convinced my parents to let me stop going to him after my dog died and he was angry that my mother asked to reschedule an appointment. He said that it was just a dog and doesn’t excuse me wanting to reschedule. I had given a week’s notice. He should not be around children and he should not be a doctor.

Over the past number of years, I have been a patient of Dr. Williams who has helped me as I struggled with issues related to a difficult childhood, ongoing depleting depression, the ups and downs of family crises, illnesses, and the inevitable crush of so many pressures one has to learn to process without being drowned. Dr. Williams is wise, insightful and patient . I have learned to appreciate and have deep respect for a caring therapist who knows the importance of listening.

One of my worst medical experience. Diagnosed me with a conversion disorder & told at my symptoms were psychosomatic. (Even handed me a copy of a chapter of a book he wrote on the subject). Upon challeging the diagnosis his answer was to up the medication even though it made me feel awful and didn't help. Wouldn't consider another possiblity. I sought another opinion & was diagnosed with a autoimmune disease. With proper treatment I was given my life back sans any psychotropic medication.

Dr Williams far exceeds what I would describe as a gifted, empathetic and altruistic practitioner. I have been a patient of Dr Williams for over two years and I can safely say that he has changed my life for the better. He has a great way of empowering people to take control of their life and move forward into better place and mindset. Thank you Dr Williams

I have worked with Dr. W on some serious health issues. Dr. W is one of those very rare doctors anyone would be fortunate to work with. Dr. W is one of the most talented, thorough, and thoughtful doctors I have had the privilege to work with; he is responsive, helpful and always calm, grounded and kind. I think Dr. W's kindness is one of his most outstanding attributes often lacking in health care professionals. Dr. W is one of those understated heroes who will only want the very best for you.

I was a patient of Dr. Williams as a young boy in his Columbia Presb. MC office in the early 2000s. As I write this 15 or so years later, not only was he grossly incorrect in his diagnosis, ultimately leading me to languish with the wrong treatment, I have nothing but unpleasant memories of our visits. He is an inarticulate, malignant, and incompetent professional and strongly dissuade any from seeking his care. I especially offer a stern warning to parents: keep your children away.

Dr. Williams is a cold, distant Psychiatrist who was condescending to me when I asked about therapies he did not agree with...I’ve been seeing someone else who has regulated my medications and is not distainful and disrespectful!! His office staff consists of one person who appeared disinterested in his patients!

Dr. Williams has been most helpful to me regarding my child’s previous disabling physical symptoms that had been treated ineffectively by previous well-intentioned doctors who did not realize that the underlying problem was psychiatric. As a result of Dr Williams’ treatment, my child’s physical problems have been fully resolved and her emotional health restored, enabling her to return to school after a prolonged absence.

Absolutely terrible -DO NOT BECOME A PATIENT. He has zero connection with people or empathy. Cold and heartless, all he cares about is money. He has no idea what he is doing nor care about the harm he did to my child. His office is total chaos and its impossible, or takes hours to get anything done. You always wait to see him yet he chides you if you are a few minutes late !

He is the most incompetent psychiatrist I have ever met. Do not be fooled by his pedigree. He completely destroyed my children with his misguided allegiances. He cannot diagnose schizophrenia even if the most typical case was staring him in the face.

I have been a regular patient of Dr. Williams for over five years. I have consistently found him to be extremely knowledgeable about medications, about understanding the sources of family conflicts, and for being able to offer practical suggestions for improving my life. I can recommend him without hesitation.

No reminder calls for appointment. Once i was late for appointment, i was yelled at for being late. He said he will count lat time to counsel time. Not carimg mind. Paid copayment on every visit but claims that I did pay multiple time. I claified with secretary and asked her to Dr. know about payment completion but still got a letter about not paid copayment. I think there is lack of coomunication in that office.

As a pediatrician with a large practice, I have known Dr Williams professionally and personally for over 35 years. The feedback that I have received from the significant number of patients I have referred to him for psychiatric consultation & treatment, has been uniformly favorable, often enthusiastically so. I have known Dr Williams to be extraordinarily well trained as a child and adult psychiatrist, who is empathic, thorough and up to date with the latest diagnostic and therapeutic approaches

I've never had a more invasive psychiatrist in my life. He wanted to see me every two months and insisted upon a blood test, despite my therapy and medication working well for me for about 6 years now with no issues. His staff are horrible and absent-minded, so when I went to finally get that blood test, the prescription was never faxed over and I wasted my time. He constantly questions my therapist's methods despite them working wonderfully for me for years. I'm moving on to a new doctor.

Talks to child with very complex adult words and the child is clueless about what he is saying. Does not engage very well with children, for someone who calls himself a child psychiatrist.
