Provider Reviews

Performed brain surgery on my wife and left cotton at 2 locations, one of which blinded her in one eye in 8 months and both had to be removed 2 years later by a different surgeon. She was totally ambulatory at that time. Fortunately she is functional now but handicapped due to his surgery.

Entire staff are courteous, professional and friendly. Dr. Hingorani always takes his time to answer all my questions and address my issues. Will not go to any other doctor.

Review for Dr. Hingorani

Have been going to Dr Griffin for a few years for foot/toe issues as well as for a pre-diabetic check up of my legs/feet while at another practice. She has always been quite pleasant and straight forward in her advice. I'm glad to see she is now on staff with Vital Heart & Vein.
