Dr. Griffin is patient with my questions, and thorough with not only the exam but the follow-up. He makes you feel like you are his only patient. I have had several surgeries all have turned out positively including total hip and knee replacement...after several minor surgeries.

Dr Griffin showed concern for my condition, listened very carefully to me and did an excellent evaluation to stepwise ascertain the pain in my right knee. I had a total knee replacement in Dec 2017 and accidentally slipped in April 2018 and have been in pain since that time. Dr Griffin is taking a structured stepwise approach to ascertain the issue and I was reassured to hear that he would not do any surgical work unless he knows exactly what needs to be repaired. THANK YOU!
