I absolutely love it there! People and work is excellent! My kids, husband, and i wont go anywhere else
Panama City, FL |
When she found out we had good insurance, suddenly she wanted to book me for a sleep study. I made it very clear we wanted no charges outside those paid by the insurance (cleaning, x-rays, etc) but her staff performed and billed my son $400 for services that he didn't realize were not covered. I would never recommend anyone to this place.

Dr. Griffin and her office staff was very unprofessional with regard to the charges they attempted to get from me when I agreed to get caps from them. I was a patient of Dr. Griffins for over 13 years until I caught on to their financial impropriety. When I asked to explain why they kept changing the cost they stonewalled me. I was already invested 1500.00 dollars they had my caps and my ex-rays. When I chose to go to another dentist they refused to release the ex-ray for which I had paid.
