One of the worse doctors I have ever been to. Arrogant and self serving - he dismisses a lot of patients because they won't abide by his demands - he will not see latients leaving all the up front communication to his NPs who are as bad - this clinic has no idea what the Hypocratical Oath is - he is evil if you ask me - not qualified to be a doctor - he does not care about patients that do not bow down to him.

Absolutely love him! Has helped in every way possible to relieve some of the pain I have been experiencing for years and has even referred me to a Neuro Specialist for the pain he wasn't able to alleviate. Very concerned about his patients and them getting the help needed. Thanks again to him!

Dr. Williams is good in regards to knowing that your TSH needs to be around 1, or slightly lower, to feel best. He also started treating me when my TSH was around 3.5, which is still "within range" for most labs. Many doctors won't treat someone until they have a TSH of 5 or more. So, Dr. Williams in great in this regard. However, when my labs indicated I may need T3, he did not want that. He was also reluctant to give Armour. These things made me drop him. I have to live in this body!
