When I worked at St. Mark's, this is the doctor the nurses recommended. Great doctor, am planning my second colonoscopy with him.

Dr. Griffin is a wonderful Doctor. I always feel 100 percent confident with his healthcare decisions, and I know he has my best health in mind. I wouldn't want any other Doctor for my condition. THANK YOU!
