Dr. Griffiths is the best. He is smart, he cares. He is fun and you know you are in good hands with him. Straight shooter, solution oriented......he is the bomb! Patsy Z
My experience with Dr Griffiths and the audiolgist I saw was terrific. What was frustrating though was that I tried to complete all my paperwork online before coming in for my appt and the online system kept returning error messages that my birthdate was not entered in an appropriate format— but I tried entering 12/18/66 and then 12/18/1966 and 12-18-66 and 12-18-1966 but none were accepted. As a result, I had to complete the same form in hard copy when I was in the office.
Accurate and great compassion. Best Doctor around. The office staff is very organised and helpful.
Exceptional bedside manner, great with diagnosis. Had been to several physicians with terrible results. This is your office. You won't find a better specialty group than this one!
I thought Dr. Chester was fabulous! Loved his bedside manner. I did not like the 45-50 mins wait time. My time is just as valuable as anyone else. Maybe, just a suggestion, they can call and let people know how long the wait will be - so we don't have to sit there - while work is plying up. I know there are emergencies, but that's the suggestion - calling your patience and letting them know how long the wait will be. I'm only across the street and can be there within 5-10 mins tops. Otherwise LOVED IT! :)
Dr. Griffiths is excellent, thorough and a wonderful diagnostician. He's very down to earth, is very knowledgeable and answers questions. He has been at the cutting edge of many developments in his field. I highly recommend him.
Very skilled and professional, positive upbeat attitude!
He was very7 informative and took his time to explain things which we appreciated
He was so kind and took the time to really explain everything to me! He is amazing!
Very informative. I have complete confidence that I will be receiving the best care available. He made me feel comfortable with the procedure I will be receiving I look forward to a positive outcome and return to normalcy.
Dr. Griffiths is excellent, I highly recommend him. Sometimes the office can run a little late but definitely worth the wait. It is difficult to anticipate appointment lengths of time, occasionally procedures take longer. Dr. Griffith is an ultimate professional and will take the time necessary to accomplish the best possible result.
Clearly a great doctor. Knowledgable, Really listens. It was my first visit but I would go back for sure! The waiting is a problem because they were kind enough to fit me in at the last minute, and I got the impression that the doc tends to run late. But .... He is worth waiting for!
He is very professional and caring. I strongly recommend him.
He is patience and is very thoughtful and thorough, he is very interesting in teaching patients what is going with their health issues.
He is a fantastic Doctor with great bedside manner.
Dr. Griffiths is a gifted diagnostician who also has the gift of a wonderful bedside manner. He spends plenty of time to answer questions and concerns and explain his choices for treatment. I have a very rare autoimmune disease and no only is he knowledgeable about it (and found a treatment that started me on the right course towards healing), he is also able to provide excellent referrals for further care. Additionally the office staff and nurses are kind and great as well. I can't recommend him highly enough!
He's THE best! I bring my entire family to him. Plus he's the Kings doctor!
I do not do Facebok, but he deserves a big, "Like!" I am well over 50, lived throughout the United States and abroad, and I have to say, he is by far on of the best doctors I have ever had. Highly educated, humble thorough, and just a great guy. His office staff at every station displayed the same friendliness, concern, and thoroughness.
Dr. Griffiths is an outstanding doctor with great experience and insight into EN & T health issues. I have seen him about 4 times as we progressed through diagnosis, surgery and after care. He is a skillful surgeon and instilled confidence in me concerning a complex medical situation. He is compassionate, energetic and responsive.
Dr. Griffiths is charming and thorough. He always provides a clear explanation about my physical condition and answers any/all questions that I may have. His staff members made me aware that he would be running late and continued to check on me. In the future, I will call his office prior to leaving my home to check on his "running time" and arrive appropriately. I live about 10 minutes from his office.
Very knowledgeable and thorough.
Apart from the long wait time, everything went smoothly. The staff was courteous and friendly,and efficient. Dr Griffiths diagnosed my condition, and suggested appropriate medicines to take, and to see him again in a month's time. He is comfortable to be around, and I am confident that his diagnosis will turn out to be correct.
Outstanding professional. Thorough examination and explanation of condition and treatment. Would highly recommend Dr. Griffiths who need an expert ENT specialist.
Chester Griffiths is obviously a consummate professional who genuinely cares about his patients. He has a relaxed and confident bedside manner and is forth right in delivering the facts of the matter at hand. I am fortunate go have been referred to Dr. Griffiths and will refer him to others.
Dr. Griffiths explained allergic reactions, antihistamine interaction, and cell replacement in a way that will allow me to more effectively manage my allergies for the rest of my life.
Dr. Griffiths is the absolute best.
This was only a consultation so I really can't assess his bedside manner since he really didn't treat me. He certainly is very personable and easy to talk to.
He was very warm and friendly. Gave an air of efficiency. Diagnosed an infection and prescribed med. and asked to see me again in three weeks. I felt very relieved and confident. The staff was also very nice.
My wife and I were really impressed with him and the whole team. He was very knowledgeable, and great to talk to. Everything was fantastic.
excellent,explained problem and fix in easy to understand terms
Great treatment! Knows a lot!
Solved the problem of blocked ears due to infection in a very professional manner. I would return to this office if I had another ENT related problem,
It was fantastic. I had seen another doctor for my issue previously and nothin was fixed. Dr. Griffiths really took the time to explain why my last course of medication didn't work and what our plan would be moving forward. I'm very happy with my visit.
I am a new patient of Dr. Griffiths and I can not say enough good things about him. He diagnosed a very bad sinus infection that I have had for an apparent very long time, and one that another doctor completely missed! He has all the newest equipment in his office and his staff are very professional.
Dr. Grifiths went directly to the source of my wife's problem and provided relief from a sinus infection that had been troubling her since brain surgery in January of 2013.
Dr. Griffiths saw me on very short notice and instantly knew what my trouble was. He was very friendly and knowledgable and I would highly recommend him.
Everything was great! Recovery from surgical procedure has been smooth with no discomfort.
This was my second visit with Dr. Griffiths in the last week. I was referred to him regarding my sinus problems. Both my husband, who is a physician, and I were extremely impressed by his skill set, "bedside" manner and medical knowledge. He also called me on the weekend to give me some lab results and make a change in medication. The only negative was that on both visits, we had a lengthy wait time after the time of my appointment.
I was delayed due to traffic. I called to asked if I arrived within a hour of my appointment if the Dr would be able to see me. They said that there might be a wait but I would be able to see the Dr. I was delighted that I could be seen and did not need to return home & re-schedule. So I was thankful to wait
A " down to earth" personable guy that listened to my needs and wants and was very excitited about performing the procedure. He kept me at ease and I would 110% recommend him to anyone needing septum work. A real pro!
Great! Prompt and attentive from beginning to end. Usually don't like going to the doctors offices. Feel very comfortable making and keeping appointments here.
Chester is a gentleman of the first order. He probably saved my life a year ago. His staff are always charming and helpful.And I regard him much more than a Doctor. he is a friend who keeps an eye on me. One cannot ask more !
I don't think doctors get any better than Chester Grifiths MD. He is probably the highest rated ENT dr in LoS Angeles and works on the most difficult cases but he actually has a sense of humor and excellent bedside manner.
Great doc! Great bedside manner! I wouldn't go anywhere else!
Great the best
My visit with dr Griffiths was great. Very professional. Would highly recommend.
He is a wonderful Dr. Had surgery in May and I healed well and I can breathe through my nose for the first time in my life.
Dr Griffiths was kind enough to see me right away when I had a car accident and thought I had broken my nose.
Dr. Griffiths came very highly recommended and I really like him but his front office has to have some upgrading. Waited over an hour and while sitting in the waiting room I got a voice mail from one of the back office staff stating that they were checking up on me and to call and reschedule the appointment. They totally forgot that I was there even though I had signed in upon arrival. The girl at the front desk was less than apologetic. I did get in to see the doctor shortly after that. Not handled very professionally by the receptionist. That was a first. But I will still go back because he is a very good doctor.
Excellent Dr. and really tries to reassure the patient and make sure they are comfortable. Does not make one feel rushed. He is also very upbeat.
My daughter (17) has had recurring sinus infections for the last 3 years and also had sinus surgery. I took her to all the best doctor's but this last time I changed to Dr. Griffiths. He had a totally different diagnosis, is treating her for acid reflux and after about a month she started improving with sinus congestion and asthma. It will take some time but the last 3 weeks I have really seen a difference in her. She missed so much school the last few years so I am really thankful that we found him. He is a wonderful doctor and made us feel very important to him and he was so great with my daughter. I can't recommend him enough! He is such a blessing to us.
Dr. Griffiths is the best!! He is highly qualified, thoughtful, and caring. He never rushes and takes the time to be sure I fully understand what is going on, and gives me all my options. Highly recommended!!!
Awesomeness is the one word describes Dr. Chester Griffiths!
It was terrific! He's very personable and has a good sense of humor. Even though I expected some pain from the treatment he gave me, it was painless. He even took the time to show my wife what he was doing to me and then, answered a few questions she had about her own concerns. My problem was nose bleeds and I needed attention right away. I first called UCLA Hospital in Westwood and then, the one in Santa Monica, Neither could see me a month. He saw me right away.
Dr. Chester Griffiths is awesome, I definitely recommend him for other patients. Great ENT surgeon and physician!
He is a great doctor! His endurance to treat patients shows him a very professional doctor. Respect of patients regardless who they are. Always ask courteous questions, let people talk and listen carefully. He is always smiling that makes patients to be more confident and friendlier with him. I've never seen any great doctor like him. He deserves it to get more than five stars.
Dr.Griffiths and his staff was very caring and explained the procedure I am to have done making me feel at ease, they also took in the consideration that I am very claustrophobic and seemed to be very understanding and willing to help me through it.
I am a first time patient of Dr. Griffiths and at this first visit he was very thorough and had a great sense of humor. Answered all the questions I had and as of this first visit, I would recommend him. His staff was very professional.
I've reviewed him before and he remains a star in his specialty and because he is brilliant, he is busy but for me, it's worth the wait. He is up to date on current research. He is experienced and personable.
Absolutely would see Dr. Chester Griffiths again.
Front office staff good, his assistant wonderful and he was outstanding... Very happy with his care ... I was squeezed in and the wait was less than I expected...Very good experience!! ME
Everything was fantastic I am so grateful
Great exam! Thorough and reassuring.
Dr. Griffiths provides great insight and is very helpful, however, I am very frustrated with the fact that the wait time to see him almost always take over 2 hours, sometimes even as long as four. This is very frustrating and exhausting and the front desk is not helpful at all, and often they are confused about the order in which to treat patients.
He is amazing. Brilliant. Kind. Caring. And interesting
He's an excellent doctor who takes time to explain and is very knowledgable. He diagnosed my nasal infection that had been causing a cough for months. Once we started treatment, the respiratory difficulties disappeared almost immediately. I recommend him.
Dr. Griffiths is the BEST!
Dr. Chester Griffiths is a very nice and friendly with people around. If you have any question to ask then he'll explain you much more details. Doctor is so confident to let you know about successes of surgery in modern time.
The wait is usually long but that's because Dr. Griffiths takes his time with you - he is AWESOME and well worth the wait. I've learned to adjust my scheduling accordingly and I bring a good book. HE'S A LIFESAVER AND WELL WORTH IT!!
He did amazing work fixing my surfer's ear in both ears. I had easy precedures and very quick recoveries. I was able to get back in the water in just a few weeks. Overall, I received excellent care.
Dr. Griffiths was great and appeared to be very experienced. He was very warm and friendly. But I came in with my 8 year old daughter and we waited for nearly 3 hours to see him! That is not a typo. 3 hours! And we got a half-hearted apology. It came across that this is something that is considered normal for this office. For the life of me, I don't know how a doctor could make someone wait 3 hours. I would not go back without having assurances that my wait time would be no more than 30 minutes- anything above that is simply unreasonable and disrespectful of other people's time.
I thought it was terrific. He is working on a very important health issues. Dr. Griffiths understands his area, makes right decisions and carefully explains his strategies.
Very informative. Doctor Griffiths provide medical advise regarding my particular situation.
Amazing! My recovery has been smooth with very little discomfort. I've felt more discomfort after a day in the gym than from this procedure.
efficient, but casual and friendly
This organization of professionals has their priorities in order! Very good communication and explanation, attentive and caring till the moment I left their offices. I awoke from the procedure with little pain, and was greeted by the doctor, nurse and anesthesiologist with a quality take-home bag filled with supplies for my recovery over the next few days. What a great team!
I have seen several ENT doctors in the last decade, and Dr. Griffiths is by far the most knowledgable and caring. He listened to my concerns, and explained me very well what the problem was and how he was going to fix it. He took the time to answer all my questions, and made me feel absolutely confident to move forward with a surgery with him. The wait time should not stop you from seeing him, you may experience some wait at times but know that he is giving every patient special attention, and he will do the same with you without rushing to the next patient. So far I am very pleased with the results, and I have already been recommending him to my friends and family.
He is absolutely amazing! I feel fortunate to have met him and am entirely grateful for all of his time, patience, compassion and kindness! A true expert in his field - I am so blessed to have the opportunity for him to treat me!
Dr. Griffiths is by far one of the best doctors I have ever had. He is warm and caring. He explains things in a way that is easy to understand, and he is very careful to give you the information you need to move forward with care.
Dr. Chester is very professional and caring. He made my fill very comfortable. Everything was explain to me so that I can understand what was happening. I would highly recommend him.
As always ----GREAT !!!
Dr. Griffiths is extremely intelligent, professional and has an overall well-intentioned and happy demeanor. It was far and away the best doctor visit I have ever had. He is very good at explaining the exact issues and knows what he's talking about. This is not my first experience with an ENT Surgeon and he came highly recommended. I am so far, extremely satisfied and look forward to the results from upcoming surgery. Their staff is very organized and attentive. I am happy!
Dr. Griffiths is wonderful! He's nice and very sensitive to my needs. He takes the time to talk to me and is not in a hurry to move on to the next patient, hence the wait. I do wait to see him but I don't mind because the visit is always positive. The office staff is also very nice.
A great visit. Relaxed, comfortable, and informative.
very professional and focused. Most doctors I've worked with over the past 50 years do not have a focused attention to my issues. While they are good medical scientists, they do not demonstrate a willingness and capability to go to any length to kill the germs, remove the blockage, repair the damage and eliminate the root cause of the problem. Dr. Griffiths exudes the self confidence necessary to fix me and gives me confidence he will if anybody can.
It went very well. I could see positive results right away based on the laser procedure I received from Dr. Chester Griffiths
It was fabulous he is such a good Dr. He is always so gentle and caring. I had my 3rd follow up for my surgery and everything is going well.
Dr. Griffiths was amazing! I had lost my sense of taste and in one short appointment, Dr. Griffiths diagnosed the problem and cured it with medication over a period of a couple weeks. I highly recommend Dr. Griffiths and, as this was my first experience with him, he is my ENT physician for life. Thank you, Dr. Griffiths!
Outstanding! I got full attention from Dr. Griffiths and staff, and all questions answered. They were comforting, attentive, and at no time did I feel rushed.
One would be hard-pressed to find a more exceptional physician. He is an expert who truly cares about his patients
dr giffiths was wonderful! i felt right at ease with him and he put all of my fears and worries to rest!
He is a brilliant, personable physician who really cares of providing good medical care.

He and his staff were so friendly and helpful and made me feel very comfortable
