I am a self-diagnosed hypochondriac of sorts, I work for the Medical Examiner's Office.

I am a self-diagnosed hypochondriac of sorts, I work for the Medical Examiner's Office. A severe thunderstorm struck while I was driving on the freeway with no interval between claps of thunder and lightening striking ground. I was frightened. My left carotid was palpatating against the underside of the shoulder strap of my seatbelt. I pulled over into a gas station, and bought a couple of aspirin, fearing an ischemic event. I described my symptoms to Dr. Griffith by phone the next morning, and he said to lay off one of my meds. No further incidents. It was miraculous to me. At my next appointment, I asked him how he could've possibly known what gives, to which he replied, I just know your labs that well.... He is a marvel of unfathomable proportion, a healer of unprecedented power, and his wry wit knocks me out! Unequivocally, Dr. Griffith & his staff are the best in America. Period.
