Marcus L. Griffin, MD

MIchael, HI Mar 26, 2014

Before joining the MDVIP program Dr. Griffin was already my regular physician. I had sought him out both because of his excellent reputation and also because I noticed that my wife, who was already a patient of his always received very prompt return calls from his staff, something I wasn't experiencing from my own doctor's nurse. However, when Dr. Griffin decided to go the MDVIP route I was very hesitant to come along because of the cost. I didn't want to lose him as a physician, but I believed at the time that all medical care should be provided at the level that was being described by the MDVIP advocates even though realistically I had to admit that the state of medical practice in general today does not reflect what MDVIP appeared to be offering. So, initially I resisted making the change. However, as circumstances would have it, this year rapidly became The Year of the Doctors in my life. Without going into detailsuffice it to say that I was suddenly and unexpectedly faced with a number of health conditions that I had not had to face previously. So after some serious soul searching I quickly came on board to the MDVIP program and I am so very glad that I have done so. The quickness and ease with which I am able to see Dr. Griffin has been a huge relief. Knowing that I have instant access to him in an emergency via his cell phone is very reassuring, as well as the knowledge that I can reach him by email whenever I have a question or concern that is less pressing. He has arranged consultations with numerous specialists and has followed up on their findings and then done further testing of his own as fits the situation. His nursing staff is top notch and extremely responsive whether it be for prescriptions, reports, or contacting specialists on my behalf. Dr. Griffin always makes me feel as though he is glad to see me when I am in his office, be it for an appointment or just to drop by to pick up a lab report. I no longer feel as if I am getting the bums rush during an office visit as Dr. Griffin affords me the time to consider all my cares and concerns at each office visit. The atmosphere in the office is very welcoming with water, apples, and granola bars available. Thus far in my experience his office runs on time and my wait time for a scheduled appointment has been zilch. When I have raised issues about a particular question or concern he has sought out resources and provided me with printed material for me to read and study on my own. During the appointment regarding my wellness lab results Dr. Griffin carefully and patiently went over each item to explain to me the meaning of the lab rests. My respect and trust for Dr. Griffin as an extremely capable, competent and caring physician grows with each visit. I am glad to have him in my corner during this year of the doctors overseeing the various health challenges I've been facing.zilch

Dr. Marcus Griffin joined MDVIP this past year and I will always be thankful I chose to follow him in his new practice. His desire to provide a patient centered approach to health care is evident with each visit & he is readily accessible for any concern I may have. Finding a doctor who stressed preventative health care was a priority when I moved to Hawaii & Dr. Griffin provides that patient centered, preventative approach not commonly found in our current health care system. He has a wonderful bedside manner that makes one feel he not only understands but empathizes with your needs & concerns. He & his nurse have made it much easier to cope with my most recent health problem, & for that, I send a thank you to both for practicing health care the way many of us envisioned it should be when we entered the health care system as a career.

Since Dr. Griffin arrived on Maui about 16 years ago (is this accurate?) I've been under his care. It is his caring personality and incredible medical knowledge which has kept me from turning over to another doctor. Financially, my wife and I fall into the middle income bracket. With tough economic times these days, paying the quarterly allotment (that's the 2 of us) is a challenge. We both feel blessed without any serious injuries or ailments. We'd like to keep it that way under the leadership and guidance of Dr. Griffin. Dr. Griffin who hails from Ohio is a true Cincinnati Reds fan. Although growing up here, I admired the Big Red Machine and considered them one of my favorite teams. This is a common interest we share. Happy National Doctors Day Dr. Griffin!

Thank you for all the work you do keeping up with my medical issues! I had my hernia surgery completed this December and what a difference a few decades make. I was in at 6:30 am and walking out at 11:30 am. Very little pain. Seems to have done the job. In 1972 I was in the hospital for a week. They somehow got me up at day three to walk down the hall. The pain was excruciating at times.

Since I started I have had the complete MDVIP physical and was very impressed. I have never had such a thorough and complete one. Dr. Griffin spent over an hour with me reviewing the results which in my case were quite good. He sent me to a specialist to check my sinus condition and prescribed a med that has now cleared it up. He has called me at home to follow up. I am very impressed and am so pleased that this service has been offered to me.
