"What an amazing experience!"
"From the moment you walk into his office you are greeted and made to feel at home. I was interested in having a breast augmentation done and didn't know where to go. One of my coworkers had hers done with Dr Williams and was very pleased. She couldn't say enough good things about him. The day of my consultation he actually listened to what I had to say! He asked me what my goals and expectations were. While he was speaking with me,never once did I feel he was in a hurry or ru...shing to get to his next patient. He was very patient and answered all of my questions. I went in more than once to show him pictures of what I had in mind for the end result. He gave me his professional opinion and agreed with some of my pictures and some he didn't think would work on my frame. He was very thorough in explaining the procedure to me and what I should expect afterwards. He made sure I didn't have any unanswered questions. By this time I had full confidence in him and told him to do what he thought would look best on me. He put some of my ideas and some of his recommendations together and the end result was amazing!!! I couldn't have been happier!! If you are in search of an awesome doctor that is not only a caring and compassionate person but also a true artist, then Dr Williams should be your first choice. I was so happy with my results that my mom will also be having him do her procedure as well. Just like myself, once my mom spoke to him for the first time, she knew she had made the right choice in picking him to do her procedure. For any cosmetic procedure in my opinion ,Dr Williams is the best way to go!!"
"I would highly recommend Dr. Williams to anyone considering plastic surgery. I am a mother of 2 and was very hesitant about getting any elective surgery done. After meeting with Dr. Williams and his staff, I knew if I were to get a breast augmentation done, it would be with him. I had met with a number of other Doctors in the area and there was no comparison. The office is very professional and the people there are very kind and courteous. The office manager, Nicole, hel...ped me through the whole decision process the way a good unbiased friend would. They were able to give me all the information I needed to make an informed decision with my body. My anxiety soon grew into trust and I am so happy with the end result. Dr. Williams is an expert in his field and delivers results to perfection. I am so happy I did the research and found the best in the industry. The results speak for themselves."
"Yesterday, November 21 2014 I met with Dr. John Williams for a one year follow up on my surgery in addition to a facial with his aesthetician.Another great experience. I have a lot if facial skin damage from sun, alcohol, and tobacco. OTC products aren't usually strong enough to repair and prevent further damage so the consultation was very informative.Dr. Williams mentioned that more men are considering various procedures, when in the past most men would just ignore something they weren't happy about. Gynecomastia is one of those conditions that seems prevalent these days and many men are discovering this embarrassing physical condition is easily repaired by a skilled surgeon.Anybody, male or female, will be incredibly comfortable visiting with Dr. Williams to have any issues evaluated. The comfort level in this office is the highest of anywhere I I've ever been. Just a simple consult puts a positive outlook on many conditions."
"Dr. Williams and his staff are by far THE BEST! I wouldn't trust anyone else. If you are looking for great, natural-looking results look no further."
