Dr. Griggs' Care Philosophy

Health care leader whose mission is to keep you healthy. Under-one-roof convenience, 24-hour advice nurse, and online access to manage your health - anytime. I chose a career in General Surgery because it allows me to help patients with a broad variety of problems. I try to educate my patient's about their disease/problem because it allows them to partner with me in working toward a solution and take ownership of their own treatment and recovery. I particularly enjoy using minimally invasive and laparoscopic techniques in the treatment of abdominal cancers as well as hernia and reflux disease because of the reduced pain and quicker recovery.
