Knee Pain
“ I went on vacation to North Carolina, driving the entire route with an ice pack on my right knee. My pain was so unbearable the pills my family doctor gave me did not help at all. I suffered my whole week of vacation. As soon as I came back I saw Dr Williams who gave me a cortisone shot. This was my first experience with that type of shot. I knew what was used to inject the medicine into the knee and was not looking forward to it since my pain threshold is next to nothing. I told him I was not going to look and at that point shielded me from seeing him prepare the needle. I was waiting for the worse to happen. And OMG, I did not feel any pain what so ever. I just felt the medicine go my knee. When I left that office I had no pain and to this day I still don't. This trip was 4 years ago! I could not have thanked him enough that day. Thank you again. ”

Care given
“ I had knee replacement surgery on November 11, 2015 at Coordinated Health's hospital. The care given there was truly exceptional.. This was "above and beyond" any care I have ever received at any hospital. All of the staff was friendly and attentive to my needs and definitely put the patient's comfort above everything else. Two of the people taking care of me made a lasting impression. Steph and Linda. Linda was the Technical partner who took care of my needs that did not require an RN while Steph took care of all of the issues that required an RN. Steph was truly the most compassionate and caring nurse that I have ever had. I had to wait for medication for approximately 10 minutes on one occassion due to everyone wanting medication at the same time. She apologized and made sure my next 2 doses were in my room without me having to ring the bell to call for her. Truly incredible. She also took the time toi explain things and to talk to me when I was in a great deal of pain. This woman is truly in the right profession . She is what the nursing profession is all about. Her supervisor sould definitely be informed f her outstandng care giving skill. Thank YOU Andrea Buck ”

Dr Williams is GREAT
“ I twisted my knee the night before. I tried to tolerate the pain as much as I could. It got to the point I needed some a drs opinion on what I should do. I called around the Lehigh Valley area only to get the run around. I heard about Dr. Williams from a friend, so I gave the office a call. Within an hour and a half I was there and being seen by Dr. Williams. I alway get really nervous when going to the Dr's, but Dr. Williams made me feel very comfortable and treated me like he was genuinely concerned and cared. Thank You Dr. Williams ”

Knee and Hip Pain Relief
“ I fell on my knees and had pain/swelling within hours. The next day I called and got an appointment with Dr. Williams immediately. I had X-rays done and was treated with a shot in the knee, which relieved the pain and swelling within days. I also had hip pain for weeks. One day the pain was so bad I needed a walker to move. When I called, I got an appointment within hours, medication for my pain, and was sent for a injection with Dr Smith. Great experience and attention to my physical pain. Treated with much care and concern. Really like Dr. Williams & Dr. Smith. Good Doctors ”

Dr. Williams
“ I came to Coordinated Health because of Dr. Williams’ reputation for being an excellent orthopedic surgeon. I was debilitated by my accident, but made progress with Dr. Williams’ care. Dr. Williams expedited my care, and performed my surgery the next day, on his scheduled day off. He is compassionate, answering all of my questions, and concerned about my progress. I feel confident that he has my best interest, and is very well trained to provide my care. He is an extraordinary physician! ”

I’m so optomistic following this very first meeting with Dr. Ly!
“ I just met today with Dr. Ly and am so impressed by his knowledge and personable nature. I am scheduled for spinal epidural and I'm so optimistic! What a great addition he is to an already fabulous practice. My mobility is so limited and so is my quality of life. Fingers crossed! Coordinated Health has been helping me maneuver getting older with a LOT of arthritis. New joints include left knee and right hip with Dr. Williams. Also fabulous! Deeply grateful, ”
