I would highly recommend Dr. Robert Griego to anyone needing a dermatological specialist. I went to Dr. Griego because I was diagnosed with melanoma on the left side of my face about half way up the jaw line. I was impressed by how well the front offices are run and soon found that the whole facility is a run like a fine tuned machine. All of the employees were extremely competent and respectful explaining who they were and what they were going to do. Dr. Griego does an excellent job of explaining everything he is doing and what he is going to do. He is extremely careful to make sure that the area he is working on is completely deadened so you do not feel pain. Although he is very busy and has to move quickly from room to room to work on patients, he is very attentive, focused and calm taking his time to do a great job on you when he is with you. He is amazingly skilled with MOHS surgery and putting you back together. Best decision ever to travel over 100 miles to go to him.

Be prepared to pay up front for the entire process, even if you have insurance! You are assumed to be guilty of being a free-loader in the eyes of the office accounting staff. I was a "referral" and not once was my "medical condition" ever mentioned, only the Benjamins. I took my business elsewhere.

Dr Griego was fine but MOHS surgery is torture. I had a basal cell on the right side of my nose and it took 4 cuttings to get it and each time the needles in my nose to numb the cutting were HORRIBLE! Now I have a second basal cell on my nose. I asked the staff if Dr. Griego could be swayed to take one big swipe and get it in the first cutting. I'm old, I don't care if there is a scar. She said no. I'm going to try radiation this time. 95% vs 98% clear rate. That will have to do.

Dr. Griego and his staff are of the highest caliber. I had a procedure done and was in and out in about 1 hour. Dr. Griego himself called me that evening to make sure I was doing OK. All my questions and concerns were answered and wound care was fully explained. Highly recommended.

Dr. Griego has performed Mohs surgery twice for me on my face, the upper right side of my nose. The first time I had Basil cell cancer and the second time it was squamous cell cancer, which was much deeper. He did a beautiful job of putting the wound back together and it is almost invisible after just six weeks. Dr. Griego is a perfectionist in his work and cares about his patients. His staff is friendly and also concerned about your comfort during the process.

I was very concerned when I found out I had skin cancer. From the moment I entered the office I was so impressed with the professional office staff, technicians, RN's and Dr. Griego. Dr. Griego thoroughly explained the MOHS procedure and the step by step process. The staff had small radios and they would informed the next staff member I was on the way for service. This is a very well organized office. Thank you so much.

I had a rather size-able cancerous skin tumor removed from my hip last week. Dr Griego and the staff of the Skin Cancer Specialists center made my day long stay very pleasant under the circumstance. The nurses were very friendly and made me feel right at home. They are simply the best. Bob Strege

Dr. Griego performed MOHS Surgery for a large melanoma on the left side of my face. The removal of the cancer and the reconstructive surgery was very extensive. Without exception, Dr. Griego and his staff provided me with the feeling that I was their most important patient. During the two day procedures, the staff continually provided updates to my wife throughout the days. Without a doubt i would strongly recommend Dr. Griego. My wife and I want to thank Dr. Griego and his staff.

Front office is warm and welcoming when you walk in. I was greeting immediately by the front desk and got checked in. Shortly after I was taken back by the sweetest medical assistant whom was extremely welcoming. Once vitals were taken I was then seen by Griego who took the time to talk and take care of me. Overall very satisfied and will contuine to return to his office .
