My doctor moved and I needed to find a new physician. Was able to get in quickly for a preoperative exam. Staff was friendly and Dr Williams was thorough and attentive. He answered all my questions and I was able to stop back and have my blood work drawn right in the office. My results were available on line within a few days.

I've always felt a bit NON Existent. Dr. WIlliams acts as if he is caring but, I know better after 18 years. He is rude and totally non Empathetic when you are in need. Can't squeeze in patients,. and never really digs down deep into what the REAL condition is, Only prescribes meds that are in his...so called BOOK I am in excruciating [ain right now, after 2 weeks, he prescribed Muscle relaxers 3X daily..well.. I am out of Remaining Characters, so I can't elaborate on my DIsappointment!NOGO

Dr. Don Williams has been my doctor for over a year now and I am just so happy to finally see that there are Doctors that actually care about you and your health. A lot of doctors out there can be so judgmental of people and so uncaring about certain issue patients face. Don is not like that. He's a great doctor who is smart and experienced, a warm heart and a unbelievable personality. If there were more stars to rate him I would give him more than 5 because he's worth more than that! Thanks Don

I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Williams. Not only is his staff very polite, but both they and him take their time in each appointment and are very thorough. Smiles when you walk, always get back to you BEFORE a timely manner. This doctor truly cares about his patients and is not afraid to refer them to specialists if he thinks it appropriate. It really seems like him and his staff do this for the love of their profession and not for the money, very rare in medicine these days.
