Dr. Williams has been nothing short of amazing. I've seen many doctors in the past and was jaded, to say the least, certain I’d never play drums again after being forced to quit due to serious pain and movement problems. I didn't think my shoulder issues would ever be diagnosed, let alone fixed, but Dr. Williams changed all that. Not only was he courteous and professional, he knew what surgery I needed and successfully found and fixed a very rare and unique problem. I now have a whole different outlook on life and highly recommend his services.

I saw Dr Williams with shoulder/arm pain. I was referred to him by my internist. He spent time with me asking questions & actually listening to me! I ended up getting two injections. I am out of pain & very appreciative to have found Dr Williams. He is a wonderful breath of fresh air!


Two years ago today, Dr. Williams fixed my broken hip with three pins. Today I am good as new and so grateful that I am resuming a full life of complete and painfree mobility. Thank you Dr. Williams for a job well done.

—Sincerely, Mary Strouse

"I saw Dr. Williams for hand pain and numbness due to osteoarthritis. He gave me a cortisone injection in my right wrist and I felt great relief almost immediately. It has been 2 weeks since my injection and I have much improved mobility and no numbness. The pain I felt is all but gone.
