Arrogant Dr., AWFULoffice staff

Called office 6x over 1 month to schedule cortisone shot. No calls back. As i tried to express my displeasure with RUDE receptionist she HUNG up on me. Are you kidding me? Im an existing patient. Finally get shot and 3 days later get certified letter from Dr Williams saying he is dropping me as a patient. Arrogant as they come and office team that is rude, nasty and worst ever dealt with. Great doctors in NYC stay far away from this team. More to a Dr then a surgery his team is awful and they lead by his example.

For several years I have had a separated shoulder which does not require any medical treatment to live a normal life. For a few months I have had a pain in my shoulder blade extending up to the base of my neck which caused migraines. I was told by another doctor the surgery would likely help and recommended it. I have had ACL replacement in the past and like most try to avoid surgery so I got a second opinion which was from Dr. Williams. Within 5 minutes Dr Williams identified the problem and touched the exact spot were the source of the issue was which was on the front of my shoulder which I had no idea was causing the issue. In the end he told prescribed physical therapy. This was almost a year ago and since then the issue has gone away and I do not have the pain in my shoulder blade anymore. In addition his staff was extremely friendly. I left forgetting a piece of paper work and the young lady ran to the elevator bank on a separate floor to get it to me.

Everything about the experience was great. Quick, efficient and very helpful staff. Dr. WIlliams immediately inspired confidence. Operation was smooth as was recovery and follow-up. I really haven't had a better professional services experience anywhere else for anything. Totally world-class soup to nuts.

HAPPY PATIENT

Extremely happy with appointment, they called my daughter in and I was not even done completing the forms (normally other doctors offices make you wait at least 30 after you complete the forms to call your name). Very accommodating, staff super friendly!!! Dr. Riley Williams was very professional and explained everything in detail regarding what to expect from operation.
