After years of GERD and reflux suffering, I found Dr. Williams and the Linx device. She did testing and did surgery of hiatal hernia repair and implanted Linx. I’m 2 weeks post op and I couldn’t be happier. Dr. Williams has given me my life back. I could never thank her enough.

After my own doctor wouldn't do anything to help me get off my PPIs I did research, which led me to Dr. Williams. She did all the tests to determine the best outcome for me which was a partial fundoplication. She told me best case would be I need to take a daily zantac and might not be able to eat some foods. Best case, in fact is, I can eat anything I want and I hardly take zantac. She gave me my life back and I can't thank her enough.

I made the biggest mistake of my life by choosing Dr Buckley to do my first lung cancer surgery. I was lucky Dr Williams took me as her patient and saved my life by taking care of the horrible mess I was left in by Mercy and Dr Buckley. She saved my life and I am only here because of her skilled hands
