Verified Patient Reviews
She was very wonderful and polite I really appreciate her knowledge and how caring she is.
Very courteous and efficient throughout. Also recommended cheaper OTC options.
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.
I love Dr.Griffin and Max. They give the best care. My surgery was smooth with minimal pain.
Everyone in the practice were very friendly and knowledgeable! I am glad I found them & Zocdoc showed availability!
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!
