I have to agree with the other posting, He seems way pressed for time and shows little knowledge of your medical health.He may know his stuff but I spend very little time with him to find out. His nurses tend to be rude and unhelpful. Its hard to get an appointment with him ever they either send you to another doctor or you wait a month to see him. Also they will not allow you to do ANYTHING without seeing them first and spending even more money just to get a referral. whos looking out for whom?, hes looking out for himself and the all mighty dollar

Dr. Williams seems pressed for time to see as many patients as possible each day. I visit him annually for a physical. I am an extremely heatlhy individual for my age (64), and *not* a Whiner/Complainer. If anything, I lean toward stoicism. He has my medical records in front of him, but I'm certain he doesn't look at them in advance. I had to point out that, since my last physical, I'd managed to reduce my cholesterol count to Below Normal, through a combination of diet and exercise. His comment: "Oh. That's good." To be fair, he seems to know his stuff (diagnosed correctly, and recommended treatment, for a problem in my left elbow). For the most part, though, he seems totally disinterested in me as a person. Recently, he prescribed a drug to treat a stomach condition which my insurance company doesn't cover. But *I* had to take the initiative (not my doctor or druggist) to get an alternative prescription. I'm going to write him a letter, telling him how I feel.
