Dr. Williams is a kind, gentle, wise and thoughtful doctor two whom I'll certainly be returning. Through no fault of his, I had to wait more than an hour beyond my scheduled appointment time to see him -- but it was well worth the wait, and I'll certainly be back!

Dr. Williams was very thorough in assessing me, and provided rational and comprehensive explanations in a patient and courteous manner. His professionalism, knowledge, and as well as his concern for getting to the heart of my condition impressed me and gave me the optimism that whatever I have can be diagnosed and (hopefully) treated. If there is a doctor who is smart and attentive enough to get to the roof of a health problem that seems as "mysterious" as what I have - he seems to be that doctor!

My visit with ZocDoc was very informal. He is attentive, ask tons of questions, listens to you, and gives valuable feedback. He is gentle and shows concern in your health, unlike some doctors just getting the job done. I would definitely recommend Dr. Williams. He also does pediatrics!

Very professional and answered all of my questions. I also had to meet with two nurses, one of them was spot on, and the other was kind of not all together. Aside from that, had a good experience.

Dr. Williams is a class act. This was only my 2nd visit, but I knew from my first time that he was a keeper. I am impressed by Dr. Williams - he is both respectful and knowledgeable. I find him extremely easy to talk to, he listens well, and best of all, he is not a "drug or test pusher." It is difficult to find caring, smart, intelligent, and respectful doctors who also have a friendly disposition. I'm so happy to have found Dr. Williams!

I waited 45 minutes to be seen and didn't see the doctor for over an hour. When he came in, he informed me that a student would be taking some notes. The student was kind, but asked me questions for another 15 - 20 minutes. Then the doctor finally saw me and the student spent another 10 minutes going through his notes before the doctor even gave me an exam. I'm completely fine with teaching hospitals, but you need to be respectful of people's time. The student could have interviewed me in front of the doctor and saved half the time, especially when they knew they were already late for the appointment.

Dr. Williams and his staff were fantastic. The reception area was a different matter, unfortunately. The admin/receptionist were unprofessional, coarse, even rude. I wasn't greeted when I arrived and was abruptly asked to sit and to wait to be checked in - in a relatively empty/low traffic reception area. This experience will not deter me from remaining w/Dr. Williams in the slightest, however, I was somewhat taken aback by this treatment.

I didn't have to wait more than five minutes to see the first physician. After my vitals were checked, the wait for the doctor was no more than five minutes. I had a positive and pleasurable experience and felt comfortable throughout my entire visit.

I arrived 15 minutes early to my appointment to fill out paperwork. I ended up waiting more than an hour after my appointment time to be seen by the doctor. I had to leave to get back to work. The front desk and doctoral student who spoke to me were nice but I would not recommend seeing this doctor.
