I am a breast cancer survivor and I just want to say that Dr. Griffin is an amazing plastic surgeon. Wonderful in the office & great bed side manner at the hospital. Made my husband and I feel comfortable and at ease prior to surgery. Even right before surgery he sat done with me and my husband and went over everything that would take place in surgery. He saw me right after surgery & everyday during my hospital stay. The results were amazing. I highly recommend him. So impressed with his skills.

My surgery went smoothly, which I attribute to Dr. Griffin’s excellent training, extensive experience, and skill. I am a physician and have very high standards for other physicians. Dr. Griffin is professional and serious but he is also warm and understanding. I was a little scared and he was reassuring in a believable and realistic way. I felt very well cared for throughout the entire entire experience and would highly recommend Dr. Griffin as an exceptional physician who genuinely cares

I can not speak highly enough of my entire experience with Dr. Griffin. HIs staff was incredibly attentive and accessible, as was he! He called me and texted me directly before and after surgery. He made a specific trip to remove my post-surgery drains on a weekend, to help keep me comfortable. As a 38 year old mother of 3 Dr. Griffin has me looking better than I have EVER looked, and feeling great. The man understood every little issue I had and addressed them perfectly! He is genius!
