Dr. Griffin did a fantastic job of making me feel relaxed and at ease. She has a great energy and sense of humor that she brings to her work, and does a great job of listening to what you're saying. Iwent to see her regarding a recurring issue in my neck and shoulder and her advice/treatment has been very helpful.

One of the most pleasant and efficient staff I have dealt with in a very long time. It is nice to feel unique and treated as an individual instead of just another patient or number. Dr Griffin expressed genuine interest for my concerns and gave meaningful feedback and information.

Dr. Griffin was fantastic. Checking in was easy and straightforward - I was back to get X-Rays within just a few minutes. Dr. Griffin carefully explained what the X-rays showed, then spent some time understanding a multitude of other factors that impacted my injury with a caring manner. HIghly recommend!
