Dr Griffin has always been there when I needed him. Before a trip to the east coast, he met me at his office at 8 am to take some stitches out. Great service and is always available. He gives me access to great medical care which is so important in Maui, Hawaii.

And, I was being examined less than two hours later. Immediately, Dr. G. got in touch with an urologist; and upon further examination, we found I had cancer in my bladder.
It is hard to express what a feeling it has to have immediate… See more
