Bad follow up from the office after MRI and blood results. The office did not bother to call me for 2 weeks after they received my lab results. Office charged my card over $500 and never even received a bill from the doctor. I had to follow up with my insurance. Terrible office follow up and infrastructure. I called the office on Tuesday 1/14/20 to ask for a statement of what they charged my credit card, because it does not match up with what my insurance explanation of benefits provided. The billing person that I spoke to was THE WORST. She promised to email over a copy of the bills that I was charged since they never bothered to send any out, but here it is several days later and she still has not sent anything over. I kept repeatedly explaining to her that according to my insurance company, I did not owe what they charged me.

Dr Griffith is amazing. He is a kind, very caring doctor who I wouldn't hesitate to go to for any orthopedic problem. He has operated on my shoulders and biceps several times and I have always felt in very good hands. One bicep reconstruction involved taking a graft from a wrist tendon to rebuild the torn portion of my muscle. He prides himself not only in doing a professional job of the primary surgery, but he's taken classes in plastic surgery techniques and does his own skin closures.

I had rotator cuff surgery with Dr. Griffith. He is friendly, courteous and answered all my questions. I am in my 4th month of therapy and have no pain at all. I highly recommend him for surgery. His PA Stephanie who sees you on follow up appts is the best. Always bringing a smile at the door and makes you feel she really cares. The phy therapy upstairs does a great job at rehab. They are all friendly and professional. Mark
