in mount Carmel, PA |
Best doctor that I ever went to. Could not ask for more . Goes the extra mile & the some.
in Reading, PA |
Dr. Griffin has underlying anger. Each appt he showed it more and more. The P.A. Was complaining about him and he flipped out on his male nurse. The final straw was him slamming his hands down several times in front of my minor daughter. He was verbally abusive and I have never seen a doctor flip out like this. My daughter, HIS PATIENT left in tears and had to sit in the parking lot for 20 before she could drive from what he did to her!

I have been a patient of Dr. Griffin's for 17 years. Every doctor should have to take a course from him in compassion. He truly cares about you. He takes his time with you and listens to your concerns. There are times that you have to wait, but it is because he is taking his time with another patient.

Actually cares about his patients. Listens to your problems and tries to get to the root of the pain.
The kindest, genuine and patient Doctor I've seen. He truly cares about more than just treating the disease, he cares about the patient as a whole, he cares to ask about life outside of your health. I never feel rushed or that my concerns are not important when I have appointments. Dr. Griffen takes the time to explain every aspect of each condition, each prescription, and any effects you may be experiencing - even if it's the 3rd or 10th time. You'll be hard-pressed to find a doctor as caring.
