Patient Comments (3)

Dr. Griffin is outstanding in the cath lab if you need an invasive intervention. The only draw back is trying to see him in the office. He spends most of his time at the hospital so for follow up care it is best to change to another cardiologist. Most of the CVAL doctors don't go invasive...more
