I've been going to Dr. Williamson for over a decade. He's operated on me twice. He is the BEST! He has a specific protocol and he is precise with his approach. He does this to ensure the best outcomes for his patients. He's one of the few doctors that explains very clearly what to expect, addresses any question openly and honestly, and he CARES about his patients. The staff at the hospital commented that Dr. Williamson is "picky" and specific about what he wants done with his patients and they also said that none of his patients ever come back with complications. The last thing Doc said to me before going to surgery was that he "had my back." That meant so much to me. I felt like we were partners and in it together. I never doubted that I was in the best hands. I had a good experience. Great result. I wouldn't go to any other doctor.

Due to Ulcerative Colitis I had to undergo surgery to have my entire large intestine removed (Proctocolectomy). Dr Williamson performed my surgery back in 2004 and gave me my life back. There were no complications and I have been healthy ever since. I would strongly recommend Dr Williamson to anyone requiring colon surgery. He is an EXCELLENT surgeon.

I haven’t had any experiences with Surgeons, this was a very scary time for me. However, Dr Williamson made me feel very comfortable. I totally trusted him. He clearly explained everything to me TWICE, on my first visit, The first time my brain just didn’t hear anything, then he said the key words, “Hospital Stay 5 to 7 days”. That got my attention. This Dr is really patient, and complete with his information & procedures. He’s an Excellent, Competent , Friendly, Experienced Doctor. I’m so lucky to have been referred to him.. GOD was In the details.. One note, I do hate the wait, but then I realize, he’s just being as detailed with the patient he’s with as he is with me... Love him and his staff “Excellent surgeon” I would def recommend

I will not go again! After the initial appointment, things went downhill. He agreed to a specific anesthetic then tried to change my mind in the hospital. I was sent home bleeding, and found out his office does not return phone calls AT ALL after the first one to make the appointment. Because of that the operation followup appt. failed - I was still bleeding and had to be rescheduled in order to get the stitches out. The operation site is still tender and lumpy weeks after the "minor" surgery.

Dr. Williamson has taken care of my husband and me, and we could not ask for a more skilled, caring and knowledgeable physician. Both of us consider him a blessing, because our quality of life is so much improved because of his care. Thank you, Dr. Williamson.

We were required to make payment in advance for a procedure. Great - no problem, we did! The EOB was issued and it showed we overpaid by $200 +/- and that that amount was due to the Hospital. Great - no problem. We called on 3/9/18 to request a refund. The procedure was mid January. We were told it was processed. We called at least 4 times since 3/9. Here we are one month later - STILL trying to get a refund. The office staff is horrible.

I needed a second opinion regarding a partial colectomy performed six months ago. I'm having great difficulty with bm's, i.e. ribbon stooling, and depend on 400 mg. of Magnesium Citrate to get me through the day. Following the surgery, the Ocala surgeon performed three Flex Sig Ballooning's, only to inform me on the last one that I would need a 'stent'. Dr. Williamson reassured me that NOTHING would be needed except time to heal, and fiber. He, and staff are professional and caring!

Dr Williamson was very kind and courteous from the first appointment. I immediately felt at ease. He asked many questions and allowed my to explain in great detail. His attention with me is something I have rarely experienced with a physician. Dr Williamson took time explaining everything about my condition and upcoming procedure while offering a tremendously caring manner. He was very understanding and his communication was and has been beyond expectations.
