I feel like Dr Williams is very sharp and informed and ready to solve problems for her patients. She's very busy and sometimes runs late, so just keep that in mind. But I'm going to be very honest: she's worth it. And I know she's just giving other folks the same high-quality care and I wouldn't want a doctor who didn't do that.

Awesome, thorough and friendly. Dr Williams thinks outside the box which is exactly what I was looking for in an OB. I’m so thankful to have found her!

I definitely recommend Dr. Williams. She is very direct, gives a lot of information (at least she did to me because I ask a lot of questions). She seems really skilled and evidence based. I was all about hypnobirthing and she helped me incorporate that realistically into my birth plan (twin pregnancy). She remembered me and always knew what was going on with me even if I had to see one of her associates due to scheduling issues. I loved having her on my team and felt well cared for.

Dr. Williams is a very smart physician, however she runs late, so much so that she almost missed the birth of my child because she didn’t answer the page from Labor and Delivery.

Warm, caring, thorough, smart provider I have seen for years. Delivered my first child, and hopefully my second. Only downside is she works in a busy practice and sometimes runs behind, and visits can feel a bit rushed BUT if you have concerns she will always address them well before completing the visit. Scheduling early in the day is one way to minimize this happening.

I am in the healthcare field, and Dr. Williams is AMAZING. As a nurse and patient I trust my child birth care experience and needs to her fully. I gave birth the way I wanted, and she was super supportive! She's caring and will go out of her way to make sure you are comfortable with whatever is happening at any instance. And she LISTENS to you! Plus her whole staff and her partners are awesome!

I received prenatal care throughout my first pregnancy from Dr. Williams. She also began the induction of labor for this baby. I am now on my third pregnancy and have been seeing midwives instead (for both this and my second pregnancy). I would not recommend Dr. Williams for prenatal care or delivery. She always had me waiting (usually about 30 minutes) for each appointment, was quick and rushed. The delivery was rushed as well. Not personal at all.
