My 7yo son is a patient of Dr. Griffiths. We came to see him after a hearing test revealed my son had a 20% hearing loss because his eustachian tubes were not draining. Dr. Griffiths wanted to remove my son's adenoids and put ear tubes in. Dr. Griffiths talked me through all of our options, I sought 2 other opinions and finally decided to have Dr. Griffiths only put ear tubes in. I commend him for his professionalism, ability to listen and to go along with my more cautious approach.

Dr. Griffiths' care, and his organization, is second to none. I had an issue with Tinnitus and was seriously concerned. Dr. Griffiths saw me right away, his staff could not have been more organized, professional and sympathetic to my concerns. We did a hearing test, and he suggested some treatment. He explained what the issue was, and made sure I was comfortable with the entire process from start to finish. I really wish all practitioners conduct themselves and their businesses as he does.

My son recently underwent a tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy, and otoplasty with Dr. Griffiths. My son had suffered from recurrent strep for many years, and Dr. Giffiths recommended taking out his tonsils and adenoids. Others had not recommended the surgery as neither tissue appeared enlarged or infected. The biopsies showed severe abnormalities in both as well as strains of strep and other bacteria. We think this will be a game changer for his health. In addition to those procedures, my son ha
