Local urologist and alum CCP retires after distinguished career

Urologist Dr. Joseph Williams has retired after 40 years of treating patients.

Williams officially wrapped up his career on April 30th from MidLantic Urology, where he specialized in diseases of the bladder, kidney and urinary tract. And while he’s going to miss his colleagues and patients, he said the time has come for him to retire.

“It’s been a great journey,” Williams said as he reflected on his time in medicine. “I enjoyed it very much. But it comes a time when you have to say enough is enough.”

The native of Albany, Georgia didn’t initially aspire to become a urologist. He grew up in Philadelphia’s West Oak Lane section and graduated from Olney High School. Williams transferred college credits he earned at Community College of Philadelphia to Temple University, where he earned a pharmacy degree.
