“Athens Gastroenterology Association is The BEST OF THE BEST. Dr Williams is an amazing doctor. I have been seeing him for a few years now, and his staff is as wonderful as Dr Williams. They go extra steps to help anyway they can. I first started seeing Dr Williams when we relocated to North Georgia. I was nervous and wondering what my appointment would be like. I was sitting in the waiting room and this doctor passed by with a big smile on his face; at the time I didn’t realize it was Dr Williams. Waiting in the room for the doctor to come up… then a knock on the door and in walked Dr Williams with that same smile on his face. Dr Williams was kind, understanding and didn’t rush. He gave us time to ask questions and he was very detailed with his responses. I also met Weslie (his Medical Assistant) that day, she is an amazing lady. Later I met Kayla (his Physician Assistant), who is so kind. I feel like Dr Williams and his staff are like family to me.

I have G.A.V.E and Dr Williams sent me to Athens to be scoped. He has done so many cauterization procedures on my stomach, and each time it is such a pleasure to have a doctor with a personality like his. I have stayed in and out of the hospitals and Dr Williams discovered that I had end stage Cirrhosis. He very promptly referred me to the Mayo Clinic to get on the Transplant list. Within two weeks I was at the Mayo Clinic and I was put on the Transplant list the following January. I am currently still here waiting for the call for my Transplant.

I do know that Dr Williams saved my life, and has given me the chance for a new healthy life. He has called my home out of the blue just to see how I am. I can’t wait to get my transplant and to return home so I can see Dr Williams and his staff and continue with the best patient care I have ever had. I Thank you all for being the wonderful, caring and understanding people that you are. AGA has the best doctor, nurses, and Weslie will help with anything she can.”

“Dr Williams is a caring, well educated and talented physician. During my experience with Dr Williams, I appreciated his ability to be professional yet friendly. Dr. Williams is great at explaining complex medical information in plain English and he welcomes questions. The Athens Gastroenterology staff is patient, professional and responsive as well. When it comes to my choice for Gastroenterology care, Athens Gastroenterology is it!”

“I’ve had two colonoscopies with Dr. Williams. My first one was at the hospital, and my second procedure was done in his new Endoscopy Center that is located within his office. Both appointments went great, but the procedure at his office was so much easier. Having a procedure at his office was much more convenient, I was in and out in a timely manner, and his staff went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. After having a procedure in his office, I refuse to go back to the hospital. Not only is it great that Dr. Williams does procedures in his office, but he is an outstanding doctor. I have never met a doctor with a bed side manner like his. He is very outgoing, personable, knowledgeable, and takes the time to listen and explain things. Dr. Williams has also called me several times on the weekends or after business hours just to check to make sure I was doing okay. I cannot say enough good things about him and his staff. I have referred many of my friends to him, and will continue to do so.”

“Very friendly office staff! My husband and I were very pleased with our experience at Dr. Williams’ office. We switched from another gastroenterologist in the Athens area and it was the best decision we could have made for our gastro needs. He tries very hard to get patients seen as soon as possible. He was very personable, professional, and knowledgeable. He exceeded our expectations! We are sure to tell everyone we come in contact with, that if they are in need of a gastroenterologist, Dr. Williams is top of the line!”

“I’ve been a patient of Dr Williams for over 7 years. He is an excellent doctor, always up beat, extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. How many doctors do you know that would personally call you on the weekend? Not only is Dr Williams friendly and professional, but his entire staff is as well. I’m so satisfied with his practice that I’ve referred both my parents and a neighbor to him. They are all now patients of his and feel the same. If you’re searching for the best gastroenterologist I highly recommend Dr Williams and his staff.”

“I have started with AGA about 4-6 weeks ago and have had an amazing experience! I have delt with stomach and abdominal pain for several years. In the past I have never had anyone be as detailed about my treatment as Dr. Williams’ office. The staff is professional and friendly, and you can tell everyone truly cares about patient care. I have seen both Dr. Williams and his Physician Assistants; they all were exceptional. I’m so glad I found Dr. Williams and his staff to help with my gastro needs because they truly are the best. I highly recommend them!”

“My husband was seen in the ER for severe abdominal pain, and was told he had gallstones and pancreatitis. They told him to go home, rest, take pain medication, and not to eat any fatty foods. So the next day I called Dr. Williams to see if he could see him, and even though his schedule was full, he agreed to “squeeze” him in during his lunch. Dr. Williams was so wonderful, explained what was going on and why my husband was experiencing the pain. He discussed our options and we all agreed upon a plan. Within a couple of days my husband was seen by a surgeon and had his gallbladder removed thanks to Dr. Williams and his affiliations with other doctors. Dr. Williams also called to follow up after his recovery and to let us know he was available if we needed anything at all. Our experience with Dr. Williams was more than exceptional and we will never hesitate to call or use him for our gastro needs.”

“I have been a patient of Dr. Williams since 2007. From my diagnosis with ulcerative colitis in 1995, I have met numerous GI doctors, but I never felt I had a connection with them.  The first time I met Dr. Williams, we built a strong rapport.  He goes over and beyond most doctors do.  Through the years he has called me from family vacations to make sure my meds were working.  He also has strong relationships with other doctors he networks with, and they discuss possible treatment options for unique cases like mine.  My symptoms have gone from severe and being hospitalized, to mild and moderate.  His amazing staff has been very welcoming and they give 110% into their profession.  It’s challenging to have a chronic disease, but it certainly helps when you find a practice that truly cares about your health and your well-being.”
