Dr. Williams and his staff are terrific! Dr. Williams is truly just excellent--he clearly has read my history, knows my concerns, explains everything thoroughly, and provides wonderful care. On top of that, he´s the nicest, most pleasant person.

May 2017
I never had to remind Dr. Williams that I was a diabetic through the year of working with him. My last experience in Seattle for knee surgery and their lack of knowledge left me hesitant about surgery.

May 2017
Dr. Williams has been my podiatrist for the past several years I appreciate his consistent expect care and professionally.

May 2017
I wish I could find an internist or general practitioner that I like as well as Dr. Williams for my general care. He is the most amazing trustworthy Doctor ever! If all Doctors were as kind and competent as Dr. Williams our health care system would not be broken...

April 2017
Dr. Williams is amazing. Very professional, yet personable. From the very first surgery, he thoroughly went through the steps and what to expect. During my healing process, he answered any questions, not leaving me with any concerns. Great job!

March 2017
First time visit to the podiatry clinic and was very happy with the results.

Dr. Williams and his assistant were extremely concerned and most helpful in my treatment. I would follow them to any facility they work from!

February 2017
The appt. was a check-back after toenail removal. I also wanted to discuss treatment options for my arthritic foot. The options were explained in a very understandable way.

January 2017
I greatly appreciate the open discussion with provider about options, results and progress.

December 2016
Good care always

December 2016
Dr. Williams has provided phenomenal care especially over the last year as the diagnosis became more serious. I have complete trust in his ability to care for me. No matter how busy his clinic might be that day he always takes the time to answer each question and is never rushed in his care. He is quick to address any concerns that may arise in clinic or over email should they come up at home. One of the things that I especially appreciate about the way Dr. Williams practices medicine is that he explains condition/diagnosis and then presents the different treatment options including the pros and cons of each, after he has taken the time to give all of this information he answers any questions that I might have and we then choose the treatment plan that makes the most sense to both of us. He educates us as patients but also empowers us by listening to our concerns and making the decisions with us. I have had several fairly serious conditions arise including a DVT, sky high INR results, a quickly progressing soft tissue infection and never once did I find myself concerned with the care or decision making of Dr. Williams. He is always appropriate and kind, offers support when things are especially difficult. I would just like to emphasize what a good provider I believe him to be and express how thankful I am to be under his care, unlike many providers he really takes the time to listen hence he is able to address patients concerns and find the best treatment protocols for each individual. His entire care team is great, I hope they are recognized for their dedication and hard work.

December 2016
Dr. Williams has a great bedside manner. He performed surgery on my left foot 5 years ago. Now I´m having the same surgery on my right foot. I was so pleased with Dr. Williams and the results of my prior surgery, I never considered seeking care from another provider for this surgery on my right foot.

December 2016
My husband & I live in Manson, WA 7 miles north of Chelan and our commute to Kirkland takes the better part of 3-1/2 hours. Dr. Williams understood our concerns about making the trip back over the pass for my first post op appointment so he moved it out 3 weeks.
