Dr. Griffith & his staff are truly a phenomenal team of health professionals who I would recommend to any and every person considering ANY & ALL treatment they provide! His PA Jeff is also stellar and together they are quite a team! You won’t find a more capable team!!

My experience with Dr. Griffith is the best I have ever had with any physician. He did an anterior hip replaced 3 weeks ago and unbelievable results, walking without any assistance, thank you Dr. Griffith.
in Baton Rouge, LA |
Dr. Griffin is a kind, caring and competent Doctor of the old school variety. He was willing to listen, suggest and even brought another fellow Doctor into the visit to confirm he was offering the best possible care for me. During follow up visits, he spent time making sure I was healed and on the road to recovery. Very personable and listens to me and includes me in the decision making process of treatment. Staff and P.A. are the friendliest people who cares for me as a person.
