Dr. Griggs, Is very through when he explains what he has found, with test he had conducted. He breaks it down so that you understand what has happen to you and how he is going to fix the problem. I had surgery yesterday and I am up walking better then I have in months, he did 3 stints in my aorta (stomach) on the right side and 3 balloons on the left. There is not enough GREAT things I can say about this Doctor. His bedside manner is wonderful, he has never been in a hurry when he explains things or in a hurry. I first met Dr. Griggs at the Wound Center where there he again worked a miracle on a wound I had from being a diabetic. If anyone needs a Vascular Surgeon I hope you will take my recommendation into consideration, you will not find another one as valuable as him.

Dr. Griggs has been taking care of my husband for over 5 years now. We don't know what we would do without him. He's always available no matter what time of day or night. He has come in to the hospital in the middle of the night 4 different times to try and save my husband's leg. We went to another vascular surgeon 5 years ago who told us he needed amputation. Dr. Griggs said he would do anything he could to try and keep that from happening and he not only has been successful but he has improved my husband's quality of life. Not only does he communicate so well with us, but he's taken the time to explain everything to our kids so that our whole family is comfortable with his plans. We would be lost without Dr. Griggs.

My father was seen on April 8th 2019 on a major bypass surgery which took 13 hours which should of taken 6 to 7 hours considering they had 2 surgeons on board to decrease time of surgery hours never once did our surgeon talk to us in the midst of this major surgery not one conversation!! we had our family waiting patiently in the waiting room we had the nurse at the nurse's station contact OR before she left shift to confirm how surgery was going all we received were very inconclusive texts on how surgery was going we received as well as expected! After the wait of 13 hours & worry of my father's condition we received a phone call that consisted of no longer than 3 minutes the surgeon Dr. GRIGGS did not once intereact with family in person about my father's well being no detail nothing! We spoke to Dr. GRIGGS on a personal level on the day we decided to take my father off life support! Til this day no answers & very vague details at what happened in the operating room!!
