    Was extremely impressed with my care provider during my first visit. This was my first visit to any kind of doctor since moving to the area and found it reassuring of the medical care that can be provided at Wake Baptist. Explained everything thoroughly, which was very appreciated, and would definitely recommend to others

  • 9/15/2017

    *Dr. Williams is an excellent physician, he has shown that patient interaction with my daughter and caregivers are of most importance *Dr. Williams is very helpful with the needs of my daughter. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

    Dr. Williams is a God Send. I don't my daughter would be as healthy nor would she have made the progress that she has made without his support, encouragement and management of her care. He is the best pediatric cardiologist there is and the SINGULAR reason why we have not relocated from this area.
