As a retired surgeon who headed a 55 physician, 10 mid-level provider group, with 28 offices, I was thoroughly impressed with all staff as well as Dr Griner. Excellent care and interaction from start to finish. Would recommend to anyone looking for exemplary Dermatological care in the Traverse City area.

I just had my first visit with Dr Griner and I cannot say enough good things about my experience. She was professional but had the nicest personality. I felt like I had known her my whole life. Very easy to talk with especially given my delicate issue.

Dr. Griner is the BEST. She found my melanoma, gave me peace of mind. She also found another condition I have. She never hesitates to find your problem. Never rushes you. She is a very caring doctor and person. Nancy McCarthy
