Gifted, Experienced and Extremely Talented Surgeon
Self-verified patient of Dr. Edwin F Williams III - Posted on August 31st, 2018
Dr. Williams is a double board certified facial plastic surgeon and performed a deep plan lift for me on 4.23.18 (49 yr old, white male). It has been about 4 months in recovery and I am truly happy and satisfied with our very excellent result. Dr. WIlliams is an extremely talented, experienced and gifted facial plastic surgeon. In the lead up to surgery Dr. Williams met with me personally to discuss my goals, challenges and anticipated results. He treated me with kindness, respect, decency and caring the first time I met him and offered his time on follow up phone consultations, totaling many hours, to address my questions, in detail and at technical level that he was more than happy and welcoming in discussing. Each time he offered me extreme patience to allow me to fully communicate to him both on the calls and in writing afterwards. He read documents I had sent him communicating what I hoped for my result (before and on the day of surgery to make sure we had perfect communication before the procedure), his kindness-patience and caring nature never changed and he always listened to me and never interrupted me in person or on calls even when he knew I was sometimes asking similar questions in different ways (on calls and in writing). Dr. Williams always patiently waited for me to finish speaking and always answered questions consistently and at any level of technicality that I asked him too. I came to understand he is kind and decent person and really did want to use his talent, training, experience gifts as a world class facial plastic surgeon to give me the very best result he could. I also came to realize that he truly loved what he does and was really doing in life what he was made to do. I also realized that even we as patients choose the Dr. , the Dr. also chooses the patient. I was fortunate that Dr. Williams also chose to work with me and did so in a way that makes him true stand out in his industry. He encouraged me to do as much research as possible and also encouraged me to meet with his contemporaries in his field so that I could know and understand all the options available to me before making any decisions. He was respectful and fair to his contemporaries and I also found his contemporaries also knew Dr. Williams to be a talented surgeon and a good and decent person. He never sought praise or elevated himself in any way. His only interest from the very first time I met him to the time we performed the procedure and afterward was to provide a result for me that made me happy and met my goals. He really did that and for me it was life saving and life changing experience for me. I hope anyone reading this can also do as much research as possible and meet with as many surgeons they need to but to please include Dr. Williams as one of those surgeons to consider. As well, please know that not only is Dr. Williams a gifted and talented surgeon, and his manner, patience and genuine good spirit a really great and amazing virtue he has but he also has a business and patient experience philosophy that are demonstrated not only in his results but also in the way he runs his practice, arranges and maintains his facilities and offices, and with his truly world class staff (administrative, medical and after care). Dr. Williams truly has the very best staff, administration and patient care technicians that truly know and understand what Dr. Williams is doing and they complement him with a true spirit of caring, superior after care knowledge and application of care and really support him in a way that goes beyond just service. Dr. Williams is a good and decent person and his staff really verifies that by their sincerely caring and supportive way that make them truly amazing professionals. They care and it really means so much but they also back up their care with knowledge, support and responsiveness that is truly world class. Dr. Williams knows the importance of aftercare and recovery and his staff are an extension of his talents in the way they are there for you every step of recovery and after care. Please visit Dr. Williams at his Latham facilities and to get a chance to meet his caring, knowledgeable, professional and qualified staff so you can determine for yourself how unique and world class Dr. Williams and his whole staff truly are. Lastly, Dr. Williams and his staff transparently offered me references to prior patients and the reference they provided me was invaluable in helping me through this process and she was also a caring and loving person that selflessly supported me through the procedure and beyond.

Amazing Doctor and Excellent Staff
Self-verified patient of Dr. Edwin F Williams III - Posted on April 19th, 2018
Since I was 12 years old I wanted to get my nose done. I was self-consciousness when I saw myself in pictures and in the mirror. After years of wanting to have a Rhinoplasty done I did my research and found Dr. Williams in Latham, New York. I was 29 years old when I finally had the surgery and I could not be happier with my result. I love my profile now and I am not embarrassed of photos of myself. Dr. Williams is amazing, his staff and facility are excellent and I would recommend him to anyone! This was the best decision I could have ever made and I am so happy!

I had chosen to see Dr. Williams as he specializes in surgery on just the face and have several friends that had surgery with him. I’m so glad I did!!! I had lower eye lid surgery with fat transfers to my lower lids and mid face and I’m thrilled with my results! At my initial consultation I was shown what my lower lids would look like after surgery and that’s exactly how my lower lids looked. I look natural and I’m so excited I no longer have bags under my eyes. I would highly recommend Dr. Williams and the overall atmosphere of his office is definitely top notch.
