What People Say About Dr. Daniel Williams, MD

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.

Dr. Williams is a highly professional therapist who is sympathetic, empathetic, and kind. He listens patiently and provides valuable insights while also offering practical suggestions to change behavior. I recommend him unequivocally and enthusiastically.

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 !
