I've been going to Dr. Griswold for about a decade now. Every experience and visit confirms my opinion of this amazing physician and woman. I read a couple of the other reviews and must echo some of the same opinions. She treats you as a whole person and cares about all aspects of your well being. I trust her more than any physician I have been to. I cannot say enough about her, her knowledge, professionalism and bedside manner.

Without question, the single worst experience I have ever had at a doctor’s office. The waiting room feels like a mausoleum and her staff take rudeness and incompetence to meteoric levels.Those were my first clues that I should have turned around and left. But most distressing and disturbing was the unethical behavior of this gynecologist. Her conduct is beyond egregious and unconscionable.She should not be in any position of trust, in my opinion, and certainly not that of a physician.

Dr. Griswold is a very well educated, kind, patient, Gynecologist. She takes the time to answer all questions and doesn't make you feel hurried or rushed. She is very caring about your whole health, not just Gynecology. The same can be said about her friendly and helpful staff. I highly recommend her and her staff. I feel confident that I am getting the best care possible with Dr. Griswold.

Dr. Griswold is a no nonsense physician, but don't let her cool demeanor fool you. She is one of the most educated, up to date, caring, thorough and compassionate gynecologists around. You can be sure when you leave her office that you've received the highest quality medical care. She also takes the time to fully explain all questions. No question goes unanswered even when she is very busy. Her office staff is equally professional and caring. I recommend her highly for the best medical care!

Dr. G is not only concerned with the GYN aspects of my health, but she is concerned with my overall quality of health. Just yesterday, Dr. G just recommended that I continue to see a local cardiologist (even though I only experience an irregular heart beat) at least once a year because of my family history of heart problems, plus I may have some other problems. So, I really trust Dr. G and will follow-through on all of her recommendations.
