I had severe pain. Dr Griffin quickly reacted and reached out to an HHS surgeon. I had an operation the same day. I actually do not know what might have happened if I did not have a doctor as perceptive as Dr Griffin.

Thorough in both the physical exam and also in obtaining my medical history and a clear understanding of my current health status, needs and questions. I came away from my new patient visit with a clear care plan and confidence that I was in great hands.
