    Dr. Vandergriff took the time to listen carefully to me, making me feel valued instead of a number on the chart. He diagnosed my problem, ordered another small test to be sure, and prescribed the proper medication after reviewing my reactions to all applicable medicines. I felt he was very thorough!

    Dr. Vandergriff told me my problem was viral and antibiotics would do me no good. This was before doing a complete exam. He told me that he was sick, so he was avoiding contact. He lectured me & informed me that he had taken antibiotics only once in his life. I was not there to receive antibiotics and only wanted treatment for what was wrong. I had to go to a different doctor the next day. Through the wall, I heard him calling another patient an addict for asking for sleep med. DO NOT RECOMMEND
