“I look upon my work of plastic surgery as a very unique and special opportunity to enhance not only your physical appearance, but also to improve how you feel about yourself. Because there are so many new and different techniques now available, it is extremely important to determine what result you wish to achieve. I also feel it is very important to establish a close relationship with each patient so that we can accomplish the desired result. I enjoy my work greatly and I always strive to make every effort to obtain optimal results for my patients.”

A Google User review
Please read this review if you are thinking about deciding to choose Dr. Williams’ practice for any surgical procedures. I never thought of myself as the sort of person who would undergo plastic surgery. I had a serious medical incident when I was young while being put under and because of that I had always been scared to death of the thought of going under again. After telling Dr. Williams and his staff of my previous experience with going under from a doctor that, as far as I knew, was no longer practicing, he assured me he would look deeper into the matter before we decided on continuing with my breast augmentation. Sure enough after a few days I got a call from Dr. Williams himself informing me he had gotten a hold of my eight year old anesthesia records from the previous surgeon who was practicing in another state. He said he had spoken to the surgeon himself and had told me he felt confident that I would be safe with the type of medicine he and his anesthesiologist would use while I was being operated on. (All of this was done before I even scheduled the surgery or handed them a credit card by the way.) I was shocked, happy, and for the first time not as scared of the thought of being put under. After seeing all the trouble he and his staff went through to assure me of my safety was astonishing. As far as the surgery itself I am happy to say it went as well as I expected. Was I a little sore? Of course, it is surgery! However Dr. Willams and his staff were there with me the whole way. I am happy to say the scars are almost gone and I am looking and feeling better than ever! I am so happy with the results, while I had a size in my mind from the get go Dr. Williams and his nurse were happy to answer any of my questions about what type of implant would be best for me and spoke of other patients’ experience with choosing sizes. I have not even gotten to the girls up front and the financial adviser! What a wonderful practice, I simply cannot express how happy I am with every process I had at Dr. Williams. I hope this review helps you in your process of choosing a doctor.
