Patient Comments (1)
in Mariposa, CA |
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 back and I don't recommend anyone else going back either.
