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.

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.
