Dr. Williams is a great doctor, I don't know what these other people are talking about but I have found him to be one of the few psychiatrists that actually takes the time to talk with me and also provide suggestions of non pharmacological solutions. Plus he has a sense of humor, which makes things less intimating.

I had seen Dr. Williams on and off for about 15 years from his time at Danbury Hospital and then at CCBH. I can't see him now for Insurance reasons, otherwise I would have tried to get back under his care. He is a very knowledgeable Psychiatrist. He is also great listener and has very great insight. He was thorough and I always felt as if I got my meds managed well and left his office feeling as if I just had a good therapy session. I have tricky bipolar I, PTSD & other disorders.

This doctor is unqualified to help any mental illness when he sits there and laughs like a fool about my PTSD I have!! Reconsider any help from him.

Treated me for depression and anxiety briefly. Upon feeling that the anti-depressant was too uplifting he took me off abruptly saying I was manic. I am still experiencing protracted withdrawal known as PSSD over months later.

Dr. Williams is the best doctor I have found in this field. He is very knowledgeable, listens to my concerns, and will steer me in the right direction. I like that he is direct and to the point. Always on time, highly recommended. I have been seeing him for many years.

I absolutely would NOT recommend this provider. More focused on answering computer messages than interacting. Had little time to pay attention and bragged about being so busy and how the staff shouldn't have made an appt for me. Don't bother with this guy especially if you're in a crisis situation. Saw him once - not worth it at all; never again. Seek help elsewhere!
