in San Diego, CA |
He knows his stuff and in his quiet voice, he is very communicative and he listens to your concerns without dismissing them. I have been his patient for over ten years and will never switch!
in Carlsbad, CA |
I became his patient when recommended by my primary care doctor. In 2010 I had open heart surgery and was not pleased with my then cardiologist - the statins were not working well and he was not willing to try others. The first thing Dr. Triffin did was give me a different brand and monitor the lipids with blood tests every 3 months. He wanted to treat me aggressively and get my numbers where he thought they should be. Over the course of a year plus he accomplished his goal. He is awesome!

Dr. Triffon monitors all my medical conditions and results of tests and gives me good feedback, as well as adjusting my medications to keep me in the best of health. He is a caring and conscientious doctor.
