Patient, understanding, and really skilled at what he does. His office staff made it easy to get an appointment convenient to me. Dr. Griffin listened carefully to everything I said and then explained to me what he thought I had and my options. He was very knowledgeable and could explain to me the pros and cons of my options. I had an epidural steroid injection that has virtually cured my back pain. I'd recommend him to my own family members and anyone!

After waiting 45 minutes in the exam room for him to show up, he seemed more annoyed to see me laying down on the exam table than apologetic for the wait time. I recently had a 5- hour back surgery so sitting for 45 minutes is very painful. I explained that the surgery has not alleviated my sciatic pain, but he had no advise to give me. He offered nothing except for an epidural shot even after I explained I had 2 epidurals and one nerve root shot in the past year and none worked. Horrible doc!

I couldn't be happier- Dr. Griffin's injection did the trick for my back pain. I'm now pain-free. He was excellent at figuring out my problem and doing just the right thing for me. So happy!

I suspect Dr. Griffin is very good at research, but I found him really lacking in people skills. No chemistry whatsoever.

I really like him. He helped me significantly with my sciatica. And he is currently treating me for neck pain.
