So this was my first appointment with this doctor on the recommendation of my friend. My appointment time was at 9 am Saturday morning. The drive is about 25-30 minutes away from my home, but I hit traffic so it tookme about 45 minutes, so I arrived later than I had wanted to, but still before my appointment (8:55). I signed in, filled out my registration papers and waited. I also had an appointment for a sonogram at 930. I ended up being called in for the sonogram right at 930 before I was called in for my appointment with the doctor. Now, what I am not sure of is whether or not my name was called by the doctor's staff WHILE I was in getting the sonogram done. Perhaps I should've told the staff? But therein lies another issue that if you get a sonogram, it's with a completely different company. I do feel though that the staff should check and see if names are on two lists, and if they are, make sure they let the person know that they are next. ANYWAY all that being said I was out of the sonogram by 945 and waiting in the waiting room again. They finally called my name at about 1015, they took my vitals, asked me a few questions, I gave a urine sample, then was told to wait for the doctor AGAIN. About an HOUR later, I asked if the wait is normally this long. They all said unfortunately yes. They could tell I was becoming agitated (mostly from hunger, but also because the wait was becoming ridiculous). Finally, at around 1145 I was called in to see the doctor. While she was very nice and answered all of my questions, I did mention to her that my appointment was at 9, to which she did seem surprised that she was just seeing me now. This leads me to wonder if they put people in rooms in the order of their appointment because I did notice a woman who arrived LONG after I did but was put in a room before me. The doctor examined me, explained tests that I would need to have done. I then had to get my blood drawn, which I had to wait for the "expert" because my veins are absolutely terrible (she was AMAZING and left me with NO bruise at all---something that NEVER happens when people usually take my blood). At the end of it all, I was not able to leave until 1230, almost FOUR HOURS after arriving. I did not expect to have to spend my entire morning in the doctor's office and only made another appointment because the staff told me this doctor has another location where she has a late night. I am hoping the difference of being there in the evening will make the visit MUCH shorter, but if not, I will, unfortunately, be looking for another doctor. It's a shame because every one of the staff (doctor, nurses, receptionists, etc) is SO NICE and perfectly lovely, but I cannot commit four hours of my day every time I need to go to the doctor.

Dr.Williams is amazing! I have been going to her for days but the front desk staff needs to be re-educated on the appropriate charge for copayments and something needs to be done about the wait time. I had a 9:30 appointment and wasn't seen until after 12pm. That's unacceptable!.

I had the most amazing experience at Dr. Williams' office. Everyone there was so cheerful and welcoming, and Dr. Williams was funny, caring, motherly... I felt very comfortable at her appointment. And the people there really looked like theycare for her a lot. So it made me feel like I was in a family. Additionally, the whole procedure was so thorough, and the team there made sure they are gathering enough information in order to provide further medical advice. I definitely recommend Dr. Williams.

This is a hard review to write right now. I've been a patient for 6 years and Dr. Williams is a great doctor. She delivered my son by C-section but I can't take any more of the long waits, rude staffand a simple perscription not being called in. On my last visit I didn't get to see the doctor she got a call to come to the hospital and the patients were asked to wait 2 hours. I was not interested in doing that so nurse took me in and did all preliminary stuff so she could get the doctor to escribe my BC to the pharmacy. It is now a week and half later and my prescription has yet to reach the pharmacy. I'm about to find a new gyn to receieve my annual and BC. Thanks Dr. Williams it's been great!

Upon arriving I was informed that the doctor left and was given no information as when she would return. Despite filling out the forms online, I had to fill them out again because the systems aren't connected. My personal information wasexposed to non-staff hanging in the doorway. 10 minutes later, my paperwork that I had just filled out was misplaced in the chaos. The staff were confusing which patients were which. I had a 12:45 appointment but was not seen until 3:00. When I went to urinate in the cup, everyone's urine sample was sitting on the toilet with their info on them. Anyone could have access to them. The actual doctor was super nice but the nurse was giving too much unsolicited advice about things that were not related to my visit.

Dr. Williams is overall very professional and she gave great advice. My husband and I are planning to have a baby and I feel comfortable with her as my obstetrician. As for her nursing staff, some of them were very rushy.The lady stuck me twice as if it was hard to get blood from me. My veins are huge. She just didn't know what she was doing. I don't want her to touch me again. Aside from that, I love Dr. Williams and I'd recommend her to anyone in the St. Albans area

Dr. Williams is a great doctor but needs more help. Waiting on average 3-4 hours to see her is a bit much. But other than the wait, she is a true professional, personable & capable.
