      I would never recommend Dr. Vandergriff to anyone. He was rude, insulting, and unprofessional. The absolute worst doctor I have ever seen.
      in Myrtle Beach, SC |
      I was in from out of town visiting my sick father, and realized I had to stay longer. I ran out of medication and went to Urgent Care. Not only did they not tell me all I had to do was call my doctor to call into the CVS, they had me wait 2 hours before telling me the doc who prescribes controlled substances would be in the next day. I don't have enough room here, but the outcome is, they were paid $90 to lecture me and left me without necessary meds. I filed a complaint with the AMA.

      Dr. Vandergriff took the time to listen carefully to me, making me feel valued instead of a number on the chart. He diagnosed my problem, ordered another small test to be sure, and prescribed the proper medication after reviewing my reactions to all applicable medicines. I felt he was very thorough!

      Dr. Vandergriff told me my problem was viral and antibiotics would do me no good. This was before doing a complete exam. He told me that he was sick, so he was avoiding contact. He lectured me & informed me that he had taken antibiotics only once in his life. I was not there to receive antibiotics and only wanted treatment for what was wrong. I had to go to a different doctor the next day. Through the wall, I heard him calling another patient an addict for asking for sleep med. DO NOT RECOMMEND

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
