Dr. Williams is a board‐certified Otolaryngologist (Ear, Nose & Throat Physician) who recently relocated to Nashville, TN where he opened his surgical practice, Ear, Nose & Throat Specialists of Nashville. In addition to his establishing his private surgical practice on the campus of Southern Hills Medical Center, he is also an adjunct assistant professor at Meharry Medical College and founded the Voice Care Center of Nashville, where he specializes in treating and preventing voice problems in Christian and Gospel music artists. As an independent gospel recording artist himself, Dr. Williams has a keen insight to not only the medical and surgical implications of voice disturbances, but also the many spiritual impacts.
During his medical school training, Williams wrestled with the possible demands that his future medical career (neurosurgery or cardiac surgery at that time) would preclude his ability to effectively develop the ministry he’d been called into. While completing his Ph.D. studies, a colleague suggested Otolaryngology. After much prayer, it became apparent that the opportunity to treat voice problems and educate on vocal care would afford the ideal mechanism for merging music, ministry and medicine.
“I have been given tremendous favor in opportunities to educate the body of Christ on the importance of the voice – not just for singers but for every believer,” expresses Williams. Williams has facilitated workshops and been featured at Gospel Announcers Guild Conventions, Beyond Potential Music Gathering, I.M.A.C.Conference, Bobby Jones Gospel, TCT TV, Airplay 360 Ezine and served as on-call voice doctor for The Dove Awards. The primary goal for Williams is the education of singers, preachers and speakers in proper vocal technique and voice hygiene to help prevent the development of voice problems and ultimately enhance the worship experience.
