  Overall Patient Rating - July 2019
*Dr. Williams was very efficient & knowledgeable - gave me instructions on home management. His injection in my heel was painful but he used a distracting technique to help me manage this.

I am so impressed with doctor Williams. He is kind, professional and explains almost everything
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019
Surprised my toe was not "deadened" before part of nail was removed.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
Dr Williams was not very thorough in his description of the problems in my foot. I didn't know enough to ask all the questions I should have. In order to get all of them answered, I would need to make another appt. I probably will just get second opinion, however. I don't feel like Dr Williams and I communicate very well.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
I have a great deal of confidence in Dr. Williams. He is always thorough and never rushed with me. I feel like he really cares about his patients and very knowledgeable.
  Overall Patient Rating - February 2019
Dr Williams has always taken plenty of time to listen and then explain options and answer questions. If there is any wait time to see him, I know it's because he is taking his time with the patient before me.
