This physician is great. His office is a disaster. I had a colonoscopy with him 4 years ago at Bayfront; really liked him. Went last year for a follow up. Waited an hour; had to leave. Did a phone consult with someone in his office; she said schedule in 2021. I tried to schedule in June with Tampa General scheduling (the number on Google for him); they took my number and said someone would call me back. Never did. Today I called the Tampa Bay scheduling number; he is no longer with them; call Bayfront. Bayfront outpatient scheduling can't schedule it; sent me to a random endo number that no one is answering. Leave a voice mail. Looked up Bayfront Colorectal Associates; they can't schedule for him. They give me his new office number; voice mail says welcome to his new office; they will be taking new patients soon then hangs up (I'm an existing patient). Bayfront operator sends me to Orlando Health central scheduling; they can't help. This is insane; I have wasted an hour.

Dr. Williams and Amy Moan are absolutely incredible. I went to visit Dr. Williams after experiencing increasingly worse tailbone pain for nearly 10 years. He and his team proactively and skillfully addressed my pain and laid out a treatment plan that has since transformed my life. I'm now able to live my life pain-free when it comes to daily tasks like sitting at work, driving, water sports, etc. As a female, it can be somewhat scary considering a male doctor for an issue like this, but I truly felt extremely comfortable and safe with Dr. Williams and his team as a whole. The entire team cares for you like you're family and is committed to proceeding with the most advantageous plan that gets you back to your daily routine as quickly as possible.

November 2017 I was diagnosed with rectal cancer. Dr. Williams was highly recommended as “the go to guy”. Top of his field. After personalized treatments, then surgery I am now cancer free. Dr. Williams is highly skilled and passionate about what he does. It is rare to find a surgeon who possesses a combination of extreme skill and understanding. He is compassionate, friendly and personable. He puts his patients health above all else. I trust his judgment implicitly. Blessed to be his patient.

I was recommended to Dr. Williams by another surgeon because of a chronic health issue that I was having. Dr. Williams knowledge in this field is superb and so is the care for his patients. I know that I can call his office anytime that I am in need of some medical attention. Thanks Dr. Williams for all that you have to help me in my healing. Keep up the superb work Dr. Williams.

Dr. Williams is an excellent surgeon with a great personality and bedside manner. He can be tough but always works in the best interest of the patient. When I came into the ER at Bayfront I was extremely septic and did not know if I was going to make it. Dr. Williams was a God send and saw me that night. I ended up going to surgery multiple times and several rounds of IV antibiotics. I credit my faith in God and the excellent skills and care from Dr. Williams for my survival today.

First and foremost this doctor is well trained with excellent surgeon skills. I will say, Doctor Williams is the best surgeon East of the Mississippi in my beliefs of his capabilities. His understanding of my issue was spot on, he knew my options and created a specific plan that directed me to a path of 100% health. I can't praise him enough including Nurse Samantha (Sam) and the rest of his staff. Everyone in the office is polite and put's you right at ease.
