Words cannot express the gratitude I have for Dr Williams. I was having severe pain in my right arm when I moved my head in certain positions. On July 19, 2016 I had a Cervical epidural on C5-6 & C6-7 that made my the pain increase a hundred fold. I was in excruciating pain 24/7 where my arm felt like it was on fire. Dr Williams was so compassionate that he fit me in between his other surgeries and on August 4, 2016 he performed an ACDF - Anterior Cervical fusion. No neck/arm pain. Love the man

Dr. Richard Boyd Williams is the Very Best in his field. The very best at everything he has pursued in his amazing life. I am a patient of his, have been for a long time. He has Operated on me 3x and counting. All surgeries for different abnormalities at different times over an 8 year period. All surgeries were very dangerous. If you are in need of a Neurosurgeon, Do yourself a favor and book a consult with Dr. Williams before its too late. Word on the street is he will retire in a few years..

Best ever. It's rare to find a Doctor that cares as much as Dr. Williams. I just had surgery and have already recommended two friends to him.

Dr William was very attentive and detailed throughout my surgery and recovery. I remember I was very scared before the surgery, probably paranoid about the possible outcome of my Cervical Laminoplasty. He stood by my bed and held on to my hand and told me not to worry because I am in a good hand. That just calmed me down. He knew I worried too much after surgery, and he ordered another MRI just to make sure that my surgery was absolutely successful.What an experienced and skillful neurosurgeon
