Dr. Griffin is an excellent listener. In our discussions he often says, “I hear you.” This is very comforting to know that he is really listening. I appreciate this wonderful caring quality in him.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Griffin
I feel so fortunate to call Dr. Griffin my doctor. After having some health issues traveling out of the country, I really needed to find a good GP. I visited numerous offices before being referred to Dr. Griffin by some close friends.
From the moment I walked into the reception room, I knew something was very special about this office. The staff had a calm demeanor and caring… See more

I grew up in Chicago and all of my uncles were physicians. If I got sick, my mom would call my uncle and he would stop by after work or give her instructions on how to care for me. Later, one of each of their children became a physician; so the tradition continued and aside from the dentist, I never had a typical patient/ Dr. relationship. My parents moved to Tucson about 45 years ago and… See more
I have been going to Dr. Griffin for over 17 years and I pray he never retires. I have followed him to each new endeavor, finally culminatin with MDVIP. Now, he is able to give his patients the time they need with each appointment. He is family. So, I had the rest of my family join MDVIP and we all claim him! While the Medical Emergencies are always taken care of with urgency and great… See more
Tom Griffin is much more than "just" my doctor. Each visit includes a little chit-chat about life - a genuine interest in how my family is doing, and how I'm doing. In the Bible a person named Barnabas was nick-named the "son of encouragement". I believe that Tom is his modern-day equivalent. He is an encouragement to me and to each patient he interacts with. He… See more

Thanks to his willingness to really listen to me and try various solutions, I am happier with my life than I have ever been. He also went above and… See more
For more years than made sense, I lived with standard medical care. I would make an appointment, show up ten minutes early, wait for an additional 20 before being taken into the exam room. I would then wait another 10-15 minutes at which time the nurse would show up, ask how I was feeling, take my vitals, then disappear saying the doctor would be with me shortly. After another 10 minutes or… See more
Dr. Griffin is a wonderful doctor. Since I joined MDVIP, going to the doctor is a good experience as compared to any other medical experience. The doctor and his staff are kind and caring. I feel taken care of. I know I am in good hands which is a relief. I'm grateful to have Dr. Griffin as my primary care doctor. He is terrific.
He is the most caring and understanding Dr i have ever had. After appointments i am confident that i have received excellent care and best information regarding my medical issues.
