    I can not speak highly enough of my entire experience with Dr. Griffin. HIs staff was incredibly attentive and accessible, as was he! He called me and texted me directly before and after surgery. He made a specific trip to remove my post-surgery drains on a weekend, to help keep me comfortable. As a 38 year old mother of 3 Dr. Griffin has me looking better than I have EVER looked, and feeling great. The man understood every little issue I had and addressed them perfectly! He is genius!
