Dr. Albert F. Williams, III

President, Owner, Veterinarian

Dr. Albert Williams grew up on a farm in Lake City, Florida, where he was surrounded by everything from dogs and cats to cattle, horses, pigs, and chickens. When he was three years old and got his first pet, a German Shepherd puppy named Skeeter, he accompanied his mother and the pup to the local veterinarian’s office. As soon as the doctor entered the exam room, young Dr. Williams was in awe. He knew that he wanted to become an animal doctor himself!

Dr. Williams began his journey by studying animal science at the University of Florida. He started volunteering at a clinic in Gainesville at the same time, and was hired on about two weeks later—he credits his experiences there for forming the foundation of his veterinary knowledge that he still uses every day. Next, Dr. Williams graduated with his Bachelor’s degree, completed a year of post-baccalaureate studies, and was then accepted into the class of 1992 at the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine.

After graduating and passing his board exams to become a licensed veterinarian, Dr. Williams accepted a job offer from a prestigious animal hospital in Miami. He would spend the next 11 years there honing his craft, eventually becoming a Senior Associate Veterinarian, and then purchased the hospital’s North Miami Beach location in September of 2003. Dr. Williams recently relocated the practice to a newly renovated, larger space—that’s where he and his team serve the area’s pets and animal owners today!

Medically, Dr. Williams is fond of internal medicine cases, soft-tissue surgery, and orthopedic work. For him, it’s extremely rewarding to use his skillset to help a pet feel better almost immediately. Above all, he enjoys knowing that he’s able to make a lasting difference for the families of his community.

Dr. Williams and his wife have six children between them, and they share their home with several pets: three cats named Ollie, Kion, and Kalifa, as well as a friendly Cavalier King Charles Spaniel/poodle mix named Cody. When Dr. Williams has a spare moment between his duties here at the hospital and family time, he enjoys walking in the mornings and fitting in the occasional round of golf.

Dr. Amanda Walton

Dr. Amanda Walton

Associate Veterinarian

When Dr. Amanda Walton was a little girl, she would constantly tell her father that she wanted to become a dog when she got older. Her father would in turn try to convince her to become a doctor. Now, she likes to tell him that they compromised! Dr. Walton’s passion for pets hasn’t let up since her earliest days—for her, helping animals daily as a veterinarian was simply the only path that made sense. She’s proud to serve as an Associate Veterinarian here at Arch Creek Animal Hospital.

Dr. Walton was born in Denver but also spent time growing up in California, Georgia, and Pennsylvania. She completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Miami, then moved on to veterinary school at the University of Georgia. After graduating, Dr. Walton moved back to Miami to launch her career as a veterinarian.

Dr. Walton first came across an opportunity here at Arch Creek Animal Hospital when looking for a position as a relief veterinarian. She started here at the clinic working two days a week, but liked the hospital environment and team so much that she moved up to three days along with a few Saturdays per month. She’s especially fond of surgical work and cardiology, but her favorite part of her job is getting to meet new pet owners and their adorable companions every day.

In her spare time, Dr. Walton enjoys reading, spending time outdoors, playing volleyball when the opportunity arises (she even played for her school team at the University of Miami and met her husband in the process!), and spending time with her family and pets at home. She and her husband, Brian, have a young son named Jaxon and share their home with three animal companions: Nala, a Black Lab mix that Dr. Walton rescued from the Georgia Humane Society as a puppy; a retired racing dog named Tiger who doesn’t seem to understand that he weighs 90 pounds; and a mischievous long-haired cat who goes by Leo.
