My care provider Dr. Williams is exceptional - my daughter and husband have seen him before which is why I went to him. I am satisfied with his plan of care for my wrist/hand injury.

October 16, 2019

Dr Williams is diligent and explains medical terms so I can comprehend what it MEANS to me, not just what he did. He explained for example that following the surgery, my entire tendon had to be removed. The ligament was torn, and it was turned during sewing to allow it to take over some of the function of the missing tendon. He did explain what I need to do in the future, especially what I need to avoid doing.

Dr Williams was recomended by my pcp & he was absolutely great..had I know that me procedure would be that easy I would have had it must sooner..rather than suffer with it..he & his staff were great.

Dr. Williams is the best doctor I have had the pleasure of seeing. He immediately made me feel comfortable. He is down to earth and straight forward and exudes an air of confidence and professionalism. I trust him entirely with my upcoming surgery and did an amazing job on the first one. You're in good hands with Dr. Williams.

Dr. Williams has changed. Before, he listened, was friendly,trustworthy. now, not friendly, acted like he couldn't wait to get done with me, never even examined my surgery incision before the cast was put on. didnt perform a 2nd surgery he was supposed to do at the same time, claimed he didnt know anything about it even tho we discussed it more than once. the incision looks terrible, like it could split back open. I'm so disappointed in him. I've been coming to him for several years and have even recommended him to other family and friends. he really let me down.

Dr Williams is one of the best concerned doctors with my health problems. He is always very well mannered and enjoyable to have as my orthopedic surgeon. I highly recommend him to everyone.

October 07, 2019

Dr Williams is very professional and courteous. He's knowledgeable about the procedures he does.

I am very pleased with my care at the facility. I would highly recommend

Dr. Williams has been my doctor for many years and have never had any problems while dealing with him. He is one of the best doctors I currently see.

Pat Williams and his PA are what you would hope for and what I expect from health professionals. If a person has to go to for health care, these are the types of people you would hope to have care for you.
