I had a total thumb displacement with bones sticking out of the skin. Dr Griggs skillfully relocated the thumb after another doctors many attempts failed. He then performed surgery on my thumb from the associated injuries. I am very grateful! A master of the hand. And I have about 90% use of my thumb!!!

Dr. Griggs was right on time for my appointment, I did not have to wait. He was very friendly and professional during his examination. He gave me his diagnosis as well as a treatment plan and a referral to a physical therapist. I did not need surgery thankfully but I would use Dr. Griggs if I had. I will visit him again if needed. I also like that he's an athlete and comes at his treatments with that perspective. A bonus is the clinic also offers mental health therapy as it was a shock to learn my ski season was over in January so I appreciated being able to talk to a professional about how that was effecting me.

Dr Griggs has replaced both of my knees, repaired one shoulder of mine and operated on at least six people I know. In my experience he is a gifted surgeon. I and my friends are delighted with his work. He is also a wonderful guy who really cares about his patients and goes to great lengths to help them.
