Patient Comments (4)
in IDAHO FALLS, Id |
I had a total hip replacement done by Dr. Griffiths in September of 2016. Had problems with it right from the start. Had a large red sore form below the incision about 2 weeks after surgery. Went to Dr. Griffiths several times to address the sore. Once he confirmed it was not staff, he couldn't care less. 10 months after the surgery, I went to Pocatello to revision specialist who worked wonders. I can walk again without pain. No thanks to Dr. Griffiths.

After surgery the incision wouldn't heal, the hole got bigger and was seeping fluid. We showed Dr. Griffiths, and he said it looked awful, and put a big bandaid on it. We went to another doctor and found out it was staph infection, requiring 6 weeks of IV antibiotics. He is a horrible doctor, doesn't even recognize infection. The likelihood of recommending this doctor is ZERO! In fact I warn people away from him, he is a butcher.

Dr. Griffeth performed hip surgery on our 17 yr. old daughter in 2011. He said he could do it arthroscopically but ended up cutting her hip open and leaving a huge, ugly scar. She never really got better and had to have surgery again a year later. The surgeon in SLC did it arthroscopically with no problem and said there were bone fragments left in her hip that had ground her cartilage down to almost nothing. Now she has constant pain and cannot lift her leg above hip level.

I had him do my surgery for a double knee replacement on 1 July 2014, and things went well. In December of that year, I visited him and he had me do some really different exercises that caused both knees to fail. He could have cared less, and now I'm a cripple and there is nothing I can do to get any satisfaction. That's just the way he is, uncaring. He just wants the big dollars and thats it.
