He was a great provider.

Dr. Denis Williams is fantastic!

Aug 7, 2020

Again, like I just said, I don't know if it was captured or not. This is exactly what I'm talking about. The providers fine. It's the staff and their ability to follow through on things that is not fine. I'm told I need an MRI and nobody authorizes it, nobody gets back to me. I have to call back, I have to pursue it myself. And if I hadn't done that I still would have an MRI scheduled. So I'm frustrated by the staff not being responsive and not doing what they need to do. I have no problem at all with the provider it's the logistics of it that were frustrating to me and then I considered be very poor quality of care because almost a month after my accident they're still no diagnosis and no plan for treatment. Just unacceptable.

Dr. Denis Williamson was extremely polite, caring, listened to my dilemma. Explained exactly how my wound is healing and is following procedure by Humana to actually get me the accessories that I need, a boot and a knee brace but of course it takes time and referrals which he explained to me and we just doing it by the rules, by the book. But other than that a perfect gentleman. His assistant was wonderful. I had no complaints at all. I look forward to seeing him again. Thank you very much for your time and please tell the doctor and the

Knowledgeable and caring. Very professional.

Aug 5, 2020

I would have liked it if there had been a person to translate Spanish.

Aug 5, 2020

The provider could have given more explanation on the current status of my knee and told me more of what I could have done with physical therapy. I always feel very rushed and never feel like there's a thorough explanation given.

Aug 5, 2020

Exelent Service I am very thankful with all the satff and the providers every single person in that building was very kind and respectful

Jul 31, 2020

Dr. Denis Williams, and his staff, are very welcoming, caring, and knowledgeable.

Jul 30, 2020

competent and knowledgeable

Jul 30, 2020

I am very frustrated by the experience

Jul 8, 2020

Dr. Dennis Williams is an outstanding physician. He takes time to explain to you what is going on repeatedly. I had a knee replacement that I was concerned about and he allayed all of my fears. He is an asset to Swedish, and I hope you understand that and (INAUDIBLE).

Jul 23, 2020

Well, I think this is provider was to me and my particular personal opinion and because of my experience. I think he was very unprofessional. He was taking my pain lightly. He was like you you could you should be doing anything. Come on you you can just you can bend your knee. Usually, I'm pretty sure you can. I'm like dude the pain is your real. I'm in pain for over a month. I'm desperate already and then after that he comes to tell me that's fine after you you you're able to flex it we're going to do surgery, but I'm tell you this is going to be you're going to wish you would've never had the surgery. Its going to be the worst pain of your life its going bear bearable and I'm like, I mean, how do you tell someone that's a patient. You're supposed to give comfort some sort of

Jul 22, 2020

I was at the facility a few years ago, and my experience was not that good. But my recent visit with Dr. Williams was exceptional. He was a great doctor, explained everything that I needed too. So, this experience, this time, was much better than the previous.

Jul 15, 2020

This provider was very knowledgeable and showed me that he cared about how to help me with what I needed for treatment.

Jul 16, 2020

Dr. Williams is a wonderful person and great physician.

Jul 8, 2020

Excellent professional. I highly recommend him.

Jul 9, 2020

Dr. Williams has taken care of me clinically and surgically for many years. He has my full trust and respect as a physician. He has a wonderful bedside manner and seamlessly blends talking with you while documenting in the EMR. His team is fantastic too - I think they are all great!

Jul 9, 2020

I didn't know Dr. Williams but while waiting for the appointment I heard many positive comments. He lived up to those expectations as did the staff every step of the way.

Jul 9, 2020

He was wonderful, very caring, he's very understanding. He was wonderful. He took a lot of time out with me. I thought he was great.

Jul 2, 2020

I would say, for the most part, or all the part, when I was awake during my hospitalization, there was just this feeling that. Dr. Williams was there with me and she was doing the best she could to find a solution to get me back to my normal health. It was a great experience, knowing that someone cared.

Jul 1, 2020

Love my doctor's

Jun 24, 2020

After I was done with my visit, I was told to go to the front desk and the doctor has sent to the first to see a specialist and for me to take to an x-ray and cat scan and when I took him and I left I looked at the data specialist refers and one of them has no specialist whatsoever. There is no name. There's nobody to call. So when I return and I confirmed the front desk of what's going on. There's nobody goes specialist name on there. She just took it and and wrote a specialist name was just driving I connect interest and then we can read the doctor's name. And then turn now we don't know who's a doctor who was supposed to call and if it's the referral.

Jun 25, 2020

Yes. Hi. Dr. Williams, my provider, was very, very careful. He was very methodical. He looked at the x-rays, in my case, very carefully and I got an experience that I was fulfilled 100%. Meaning, I believed the man 100%. And a very, very, professional guy and I would recommend Dr. Williams to anybody.

Jun 12, 2020

Dr. Williams is really professional. He understood what I was going through. So that's all.

Jun 12, 2020

I wish the provider would have taken more time to explain why he was choosing the route of care that he was.

May 7, 2020

No comments at all, just the wait time to see the doctor was a little more than I would have liked, but nothing really bad other than waiting time. Thank you.

May 28, 2020

Please refer to the page before. Dr. Williams is great! I travel far to see him. I could easily seek a orthopedic physician in my area but I trust Dr.Williams and do not want to leave him. He is the best!!! He's awesome!! Please see my previous page. Kudos to my doctor!!! Thank you Dr.Williams.Thanks for caring. He's so caring, knowledgeable and kind.

Jun 11, 2020

With this Covid-19, situation going on in the country, it was excellent set up done by the provider. Thanks!!!

Jun 12, 2020

I would have liked Dr. Williams to ask more about my med history and give me a more thorough physical exam, but given that there are restrictions due to the pandemic situation, and given that my appointment was rather an emergency one (severe pain with walking, weight on my left leg), I'm just grateful that he was kind enough to schedule me in. Since my x-ray didn't show a fracture, Dr.Williams requested a CT scan to "get to the bottom of this," and gave me medication options in the meantime.

Jun 12, 2020

Better preparations

Jun 11, 2020

I appreciated the care I was shown. I hope to take care of my ortho problem with the ideas presented.

Jun 3, 2020

I'm very satisfied with Dr. Williams.

May 28, 2020

They all are professional and outstanding people.

May 28, 2020

I had a very good experience with Dr. Williams. He's been a great provider for all the time that I've been making the visit to Swedish Covenant, so I want to thank you. Thank you for for all the attention being given to my person. Thank you very much. Goodbye.

May 21, 2020

The doctor, Dr. Denis Williams, should be more considerate towards the problem of the...of the patients. He spends....he doesn't spend much time with patients, he spends less than less than 5 minutes, even though..... even though the problem is very severe. He spends less than 5 minutes of time, which is...which is not acceptable and on top of that, he tries to sell the health of a patient as a business. For example, he kept recommending the knee replacement surgery for my mom, even though her current femur bone hasn't improved yet and he wasn't considered towards the femur bone recovery at all. So, that's completely unacceptable.

May 21, 2020

Swedish Covenant Hospital is an excellent hospital and I will highly recommend it to anyone. My experience and the care I received during my stay there was excellent.

I have been a patient of Dr. Williams, when I broke my arm and was very pleased and therefore came back to him when I had an issue with my knee.

Jan 15, 2020

Our comment is this doctor is the best for us because you did the really excellent job for my son

Jan 16, 2020

Dr williams dr. Williams seem to be bent out of shape because I said I listen to the nurse after that he seem to get very short and leave them. Although he had the girls put the soft brace on my arm he warned me something could happen that he left so we didn't get her qQ@aa

Jan 21, 2020

Dr Williams was incredibly attentive and thorough

Jan 22, 2020

The Doctor was great, smart and efficient. Also appeared to be quite knowledgeable and provided his personal cell phone.

Jan 23, 2020

Hey, he was cool, but he didn't take the time to let me ask all my questions, and he's supposed to be a very good sturgeon from what I understand, and he operated on me once, so I want to trust him, but he kept walking away before I could ask my questions. Like he's in a rush. Maybe he didn't feel good. Maybe was sick. Maybe he had to go to the restroom. He could have excuse himself and come back and let me finish.

Jan 15, 2020

Williams is the best thing there could be as a doctor. Thank God.

Jan 21, 2020

It doesn't matter. I'm going to go to another ortho doc.
