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.

Dr. Williams was very kind, thorough, and attentive during my visit. He took time to listen to me about my medical history and just to chat. He did not seem like he was in a rush or distracted, which is a nice change of pace from many physicians these days.

Dr. Williams has an excellent bedside manner. He listens patiently and lets you talk through what's troubling you before offering his professional opinion and advice. As if that wasn't enough, he's got a good sense of humor as well. I won't be looking anywhere else for primary care, so long as my coverage stays the same.

First time patient. 10 minutes of first time patient paperwork, and then promptly seen by nurse, and promptly seen by Dr Williams. He was thorough and perhaps the least rushed doctor I've experienced.

I went in for a routine visit. Normally if they see your alright and young they tell you everything is ok. It's probably stress. But he listened very patiently to everything I said and asked a lot of questions. Very attentive to detail.

Dr. Williams was extremely thorough and professional in his history taking. The medical student who joined him in the physical exam was also very polite. Dr. Williams was very clear about what kinds of tests I would be needing and explained why certain tests he opted out on would be extraneous. The entire staff made me feel very comfortable to be there. Despite the wait to be seen once in the exam room, I will definitely be returning for the exceptionally attentive and cordial care Dr. Williams and the staff at his office provided.
