Dr. Williams not only figured out why my mother suddenly could not walk, he explained the problem, risks and personally performed a complicated surgery. For years doctors looked at her brain, neck and back, but Dr. Williams found the tumor pressing her spinal cord. Dr. Williams speaks and does everything with expert surgical precision. Dr. Williams sees and understands what others miss. 100 + stars & TY to Dr. Williams. Consider yourself lucky if you get to meet him, he is the best.

Way too eager for a life altering surgery. I am without question worse off than I was prior to surgery. He did not listen to my concerns and current pain. I trusted him and he betrayed my trust without question.

I was diagnosed with a very rare and unusual condition. Dr. Williams is excellent sharing information, data, my concerns, available options for my outcome. His staff is right on time with appointments and you are never rushed out the door. Going to see him from western Mass was the best decision I made. I feel very confident in decisions Dr. Williams makes about my care. I live a very normal life and my issue has not progressed in over 6 years.
