I strongly recommend Dr. Williams and his medical team. Every encounter has been face to face or over the phone (Dr. Williams even utilized FaceTime for my consult during the COVID-19 pandemic). I had nose surgery due to extensive breathing issues from prior trauma and now that the surgery is over, I can actually breathe again through both nostrils which has been life changing. I am very happy with the results and the quality work that was performed. Thank you Dr. Williams and Team for making my experience nothing but wonderful!

I needed upper eyelid surgery due to two previous eye operations. I reviewed Dr. Williams web site and decided he was the surgeon I wanted two fix my eyelid. I booked a consultation and as a result decided Dr. Williams was the best plastic surgeon to perform the surgery. His staff was very kind and professional but what sold me the most was a statement by Dr. Williams that if the surgery does not go as well as I or he expected, he would do it again, and if needed a third time until I was happy. That told me he takes pride in his ability and wants to put the patient's happiness first. The surgery went well and I would highly recommend Dr. Williams for any plastic surgery procedure one would seek!

I recently had my deviated septum repaired with Dr. Williams. Dr. Williams and his staff were fantastic and I am really grateful to have gone through this experience with them. I was a bit scared of surgery, but I knew I was in good hands, so I was not worried about the outcome. I am truly grateful for the improvement in my quality of life that comes with having my septum repaired. I would definitely recommend Dr. Williams and his staff to others. This has been the absolute best experience and outcome for me.

I didn't see Dr. Williams, but I had an urgent need for treatment for my son and was scheduled with his associate Dr. Obourn. The staff was friendly, courteous and efficient. They made us feel welcome and cared for right when we walked in the door. Dr. Obourn did a great job.

DR. Williams did a weekend face lift on me several years ago and I had so many problems with that surgery. I had to have revision surgery from another doctor on myself 2 years ago and the side effects from the original surgery were not good. It cost me time and lots of money to have something fixed that was done wrong to begin with. The Williams Surgery center was unprofessional in their care for me. After a very long surgery I was pushed out of recovery and could not walk and passed out.

I am extremely happy with Dr. Williams and the staff at the Williams Center. After years of hating the way that I looked, I decided to see Dr. Williams for a mid-face lift with buccal fat pad removal and I am astonished with the results. I literally look 20 years younger and I feel great about myself for the first time in a very long time. Thank you, Dr. Williams....you are truly an artist!

I'm so glad I decided to have a facelift and I chose Dr. Williams, a board certified facial plastic surgeon. His Surgery Center staff is outstanding and compassionate. They take excellent care of you during your entire procedure.

I had chosen to see Dr. Williams as he specializes facial surgery and had several friends that were very happy with their results. I'm so glad I did!!! I had lower eyelid surgery with fat transfers to my lower lids and mid face. My results are exactly what was shown to me on their imager before having surgery, I look natural and I'm so excited I no longer have the bags under my eyes. The recovery process was alot easier than I expected, it didn't hurt at all!

Dr. Williams is rude, arrogant and dismissive and his staff is only about making the sale. He has a very high opinion of himself, to say the least!! After my consultation I ended up going to a different local plastic surgery group. After telling a friend about my experience, she took her deposit back from Williams and also went elsewhere. We both were very happy we didn't go with Williams. He is so obnoxious!

Not impressed. Did not listen to concerns, poor examine and not worth the 150. consultation fee. He did not have a clue to what I was describing. My platysma muscles in my face was giving me the feeling I described to him. I figured that out with some research.

In February of 2017, Dr. Edwin Williams performed my blepharoplasty. The whole process changed my life for the better! I feel great and look more youthful, better than I even expected. Several people have told me I look like I’m in my early 30s, but really I’m in my late 40s. Before my surgery, my eyelids had been so heavy and droopy, they really made me look older than I was. Noone can figure out exactly what has changed, only that now I look so refreshed and rejuvenated. The best part is that

Dr. Williams not only is an excellent surgeon, he is a very kind, and compassionate Doctor. If you have a concern or question, he addresses it with honesty. He does not dismiss something that you feel embarrassed to ask. Validation of questions and offering true solutions is what makes this Doctor rate excellent for me.

I went to see Dr. Williams about my heavy eyelids that had been bothering me for a long time. He recommended the Sliver Bleph, an in-office procedure that took less than an hour to perform. I am happy to say that my results are amazing! I can actually see the eyeshadow I put on my eyes now and my face looks brighter. I was extremely pleased with the staff and care I was given during the whole experience. Thank you Dr. Williams for my amazing, natural results!

Dr. Williams and his staff were thorough, caring and very skilled. I had a weekend lift, necklift, chin implant and fat transfers. I look 10 years younger, but still like myself! I am very happy with the results. I asked Dr. Williams many questions which would have made some doctors defensive. But he answered with an understanding and caring attitude. He takes great pride in his work, so that he is truly happy when the patient is happy.
