Dr. Albert Williams


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.
