Practice Owner and Veterinarian
Education: University of Florida Hometown: Lake City, Florida
Arch Creek Animal Clinic’s Dr. Albert F. Williams, III was born and raised in the rural, north Florida town of Lake City. Having the advantage of growing up on a farm, he was exposed early in life to the importance/value of companion animals and the human-animal bond, as well as the economic importance of healthy farm animals. At the age of three, during his first visit to an animal hospital with his puppy, Skeeter, he announced to his mother–”Wow! Dogs have doctors too! I want to be a veterinarian when I grow up”. His childhood love and devotion to an array of adopted, rescued, and “farm-bred” pets—Skeeter (the German Shepherd), Rosalyn (the Yorkshire pig), Misty (the domestic short-hair cat), Roscoe (the Braford bull), Red River (the Quarter horse)—continued to fuel his dream. The dream became reality at the University of Florida where he earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Agriculture in 1988 and a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1992.
Following graduation, Dr. Williams accepted a position with the prestigious Knowles Animal Clinics in Miami, developing a particular interest in preventive medicine; internal medicine; orthopedic and soft tissue surgery. After 11 years in practice, he purchased the Arch Creek location in September 2003.
Dr. Williams free time is often spent with his family and occasionally (when they allow) improving his golf game and watching basketball. He enjoys spending extended time away by gathering up the kids and driving back "home" to the country.

Dorian is our resident clinic cat. Eight years ago he was found in a box at our backdoor. He was barely four weeks old, able to fit in the palm of your hand. The staff bottle fed him and carried him around the practice in their scrub pocket while performing treatments. As he grew bigger he got to the point of accompanying dogs on their walks. These days his normal routine is to patrol the clinic during morning and evening treatment rounds spreading good kitty vibes. His hobbies include laying on keyboards that are in use and knocking over mugs.
