Explained condition very well. I would certainly recommend him
in York, SC |
Dr. Griffin replaced my left hip on August 29, 2017. I had a great experience. No pain since surgery. Back to work in 4 weeks.

For a tough operation, Dr.Griffin and his staff made it very "doable!" I cannot give enough praises !!! A superb and caring physician!! Thx so much!!!!
in Davidson, NC |
Dr Griffin replaced my right knee and 3 months later he replaced my left knee. He is compassionate, caring, and is THE man to see for knee replacements. The staff at his office is amazingly competent.
in Morganton, NC |
I was 65 years old when Dr. Griffin replaced my right hip. Every thing about my experience with Dr. Griffin and the staff went extremely well. If they would have allowed it, I could have walked out of the hospital. I used a cane for two days after I got home, but I never felt like I needed it. I rehabbed at home, on my on, and was back playing basketball and softball in less than six months. It has now been almost seven years since the hip was replaced, and it still has given me no problems
in Hickory, NC |
Dr. Griffin barely made eye contact. He was impatient & dismissive. My particular hip condition didn't match w/ his expectations for "usual patient" & rather than brainstorm options he simply wanted to shoo me out of his office w/ some trite advice about what kinds of exercise to avoid. I am in constant pain & he dismissed my experience by simply saying "your case sounds highly unusual." & then had the gall to act like I was there just to ask for narcotics which I had no interest in! Arrogance!!

I am having problems with my left knee. Dr Griffin is rated very high so I made an appointment with him. Dr. Griffin did not physically examine my knee. He looked at the x-ray and he told me I have arthritis in my knee. He also told me that the brace I was using would not help my knee. I tried to go without the brace but I am having some sharp pains in that knee without it. I am disappointed in my care by Dr. Griffin.
in Ft Mill, SC |
Dr. Griffin has replaced both of my knees and I'm very pleased. I highly recommend him to anyone anticipating the same.
in Charlotte, NC |
I have been a patient of Dr. Bill for 21 years. He's conservative in his approach to surgery but very reasonable. I can say enough good about him is not only a great surgeon, but also a great guy! He is thee man! :-) Jim Scalia

Dr Griffin was recommended to me by a friend who knew one of his nurses and knew my personality. I was born with a birth defect which was corrected by bone graphs when I was 2. I am now 46 and began having problems with that hip again. Dr Griffin was wonderful. He reviewed the X-rays, discussed my regular activities and monitored me for about 6 months at which point, even at my young age, he felt we should proceed with hip replacement due to the amount of pain I was in. He gave me a new life!
