I have only had wonderful care from Dr. Williams and her staff. Even the office staff is wonderful. I highly recommend Dr. Williams.
in Nashville tn |
During my treatment by Dr Williams which included surgery and chemotherapy she remained distant, abrupt and dismissive. I was given little opportunity to ask questions.. She actually acted annoyed when I requested information or a response to my questions. I completed my treatment with a different oncologist..

She is a very busy lady and I feel blessed to have her as my doctor. She does all my girlie exams. She is very sweet, kind and smart. I trust her opinions. I never want her to retire.

Best Doctor that i have ever met! Staff is excellent, great attitudes and exceptional patient service. Always understanding, caring and friendly.
in Clarksville, TN |
I was referred to her for possible cancer and she had me scheduled on Monday, three days later. My surgery was two weeks after that. No cancer thankfully. No pain meds needed and home the next morning. She is not touchy feely, but pleasant, sincere and very professional. An excellent surgeon, which I prefer, rather than being coddled. Hands down, a great experience. All the staff were so wonderful and happy to answer any questions I had.
in White House, TN |
Dr. Laura Williams is the best in her field. She is thorough and focused to provide you with the best care you can possibly have. She takes the time to explain what needs to be done and follows through to personally ensure that your health care is done in a timely manner. .I could not ask for anything better. Her entire staff is experienced,friendly and compassionate..
After a scary gynecological appointment with my doctor, I was highly referred to Dr. Williams. My appointment was the next week...actually the following Monday! I ended up having to have a complete hysterectomy and thank the Lord everything was benign. The staff and Dr. Williams were extremely helpful, very accommodating, and above all, very friendly and loving. I would highly recommend Dr. Williams and her clinic!
in Shelbyville, TN |
Dct Williams is one of the smartest women around our area and we are very lucky to have her here. I drove 50 miles and back for treatment and would do it again. My GYN sent me to her because of the rarity of my cancer but with Her and the grace of God I am still here after 8 years. Wonderful person!!!
in Thompsons Station, TN |
Love Dr. Williams and her staff. They make you feel important and not just a number. They have walked me through everything from answering my questions, discussing what is going on, walking me through surgery, making me feel comfortable during surgery, calling me during recovery. It's a lot to process but this office has helped me so much and helped calm my nerves through all of this. So far I am cancer free and Dr. Williams keeps an eye on things every 6 months.

Dr. Laura and her staff are kind and professional. She was really concerned about my healthcare. I had two successful surgeries by Dr. Laura. She follows up with my healthcare and make sure I get the care I need. I'm so grateful to her. I highly recommend her.
Brentwood, TN |
A good experience from the time you enter from the staff. Dr. Williams is thorough and the wait is never long.
Perhaps the best thing about Dr. Williams is that there is never a long wait. Most of my appointments, I have arrived very early, but am still seen promptly and out of the office within 20 minutes. She answers any questions that I have and explains things, if needed. I highly recommend her.

My experience with Dr. Laura has always been pleasant...every appointment I've had she makes me feel at ease...I would recommend her to anyone
in Hermitage, TN |
Pleased with Dr. Williams. She performed surgery on 4/27/17 and I am recovering as expected. Surgery was scheduled quickly and except for a miscommunication with Centennial Medical all went well. She was on top of everything coming in daily for review in my hospital room and giving me important updates.. She gave referral to rehab with smooth transition. I didn't get call back when left message for her nurse, but got all answers necessary when did reach her. Understood questions I had.
in Hendersonville, TN |
I would recommend Dr. Williams to anyone in need of a gynecological oncologist. She came highly recommended and now I know why. She is very knowledgeable. Her staff is friendly and efficient. I have never been in a more efficiently ran doctors office in all of my life. There is no wait time. She is straight to the point and sincere. I am truly grateful for her and her team.
in Franklin, TN |
I have been seeing Dr. Laura Williams since 2003 when discovering I had uterine cancer. She did my surgery as well as the chemo sessions. I trust her opinion and so appreciate all she has done for me in the past 14 years. I would recommend Dr. Williams (and have for that matter) to any person needing her service. Her staff has always been very considerate of the patient's needs.

Dr. Williams is exceptional. The treatment and care that I receive from her exceeds any expectations. She listens to me and takes action. She literally saved my life. The staff members are also exceptional. They're friendly and eager to help. Always. They turn my difficult health situation into a positive experience every time. I trust Dr. Williams and staff.
I saw Dr. Williams for the first and last time today. I went to her office solely based on the fact that I have a BRCA 2 gene mutation. Dr. Williams did not care about anything other than this gene mutation. She was adamant about me having my ovaries and breasts removed even though I have already decided to wait on that and just get screened more often.That did not sit well with her, yet she insisted on doing a pelvic exam which was so rough & uncomfortable that I experienced bleeding afterward.

Absolutely the best.I would highly recommend her team to anyone
Murfreesboro, TN |
I have had two surgeries with Dr Williams and I always felt taken care of with great knowledge and care. Dr Williams always took the time to make eye contact with me and explain things well. She keeps straight to the point and is not chatty so have your questions ready. I would recommend her, she is an excellent dr and surgeon. Her support staff was always helpful as well when we had questions.
in Lewisburg, TN |
Always friendly and professional. Great time management. Staff is wonderful and kind
in Murfreesboro, TN |
After a year of trying to find out what was actually going on in my body, from other MDs, Dr. Williams came right in and actually listened to me and help me make a decision that required surgery. I felt the surgery was needed quite a while ago...but, no one would allow me to participate in my care decisions. Thankfully, I am about 5 weeks post-op and getting stronger daily. I feel Dr. Williams made a huge difference in my life. Office staff, scheduling...all top-notch, too!

Dr. Williams has been my doctor for 16 years. I have always received professional and compassionate care.

Murfreesboro, TN |
Love Dr. Williams. She is so knowledgeable about what she does. She is an excellent doctor. I feel she has saved my life. I never want to leave her practice.
in Mount Juliet, TN |
My OB/GYN referred me to Dr. Laura Williams ~ she was very thorough in explaining in detail the surgery that I needed and how the surgery would be performed, recovery time, etc. She's very knowledgable and answered all questions that I had. The actual surgery took 1.5 hours during the time she kept my family updated. I never received and medication for any pain. Stayed overnight at the hospital and released the following day. I would feel very confident in referring anyone to Dr.Williams
She seemed thorough & decisive, but at the same time was very abrupt and seemed bothered by my questions. Also, she brought an extra person into the exam room (in addition to the nurse), but did not introduce her or say why she was there.
