Bio:
Dr. Williams is a general surgeon specializing in colonoscopies, esophagogastroduodenoscopy tests (EGD) and hernia repair. He is trained in the advanced technique known as totally extra peritoneal inguinal surgery (TEPP), a laparoscopic approach to repairing hernias that is less invasive and carries a lower risk of future complications.

Before pursuing his medical studies, Dr. Williams served in the U.S. Air Force, flying back seat in the F-15E before becoming a military contractor as an expert on the strike fighter aircraft. He was drawn to the medical field because he views it as the most ethical, moral and compassionate profession.

Dr. Williams enjoys spending time with his husband and their dogs as well as golfing, flying and building model airplanes.
