Never let this quack touch you. Filthy office and totally unprofessional. Did a cystoscope on me in the office , told him the numbing gel was burning like crazy. Very painful, he then called me melodramatic because I was sweating in pain. I should have put his but on the table and shoved that scope...more

I had an appointment at 10:00 am with many people before me and Dr. Griffith did not even show up until 10:30 am and the person who should be first was scheduled at 9:00 am. After waiting an hour and a half more with no where to sit or be to wait, he still was not ready. So I left and will never go...more
