What People Say About Dr. W Griffing, MD
Reply
Doctor spent about 90 min with my husband. He had severe muscle and joint pain and had been taking immunotherapy and anti angiogenesis for metastasized liver cancer. Doctor gave tentative of possibility of 5 issues and ordered more testing. Then doctor collaborated with other Mayo doctors. We have a lot of confidence in this very patient and professional Mayo doctor. He deserves 10 stars.
