Testimonials from patients of Dr. Griffith

from Janice in GA March 28, 2020 for Richard L. Griffith, MD, PhD

My husband and I are fortunate to be members of the MDVIP practice of Dr. Griffith! He and his staff, including Nikole and Sarah, can be described in two words: competent and compassionate. Of course, the physicals we get each year are comprehensive and Dr. Griffith keeps us on schedule for the specialized assessments we need. But it's the care that we get the other 364 days of the… See more

from Marlene in GA March 17, 2020 for Richard L. Griffith, MD, PhD

I cannot remember how long I've been a patient of Dr Griffith's but it's been many years. I started out when he and Dr. Alan Hoffman were partners. He's always there, no matter the time of day or night. I love my physicals even though they can be three hours long. Who else takes that much time with a patient. I feel like he gives me great advice and attention to all of my needs and believe me… See more

from Shelly in GA March 16, 2020 for Richard L. Griffith, MD, PhD

I will be forever grateful to Dr. Richard Griffith for properly diagnosing me over 9 years ago. I had been to every kind of doctor imaginable with no successful diagnosis. I was so sick for so long. My mother is a patient of his and told him my symptoms. He said to immediately come in as he knew what was wrong with me. He did and proceeded to give me the proper care I needed. He changed my… See more

from Bill in GA March 13, 2020 for Richard L. Griffith, MD, PhD

Dr. Richard Griffith (and his team) is beyond exceptional both in his broad expertise, comprehensiveness to detail and his persistence in delivering the highest quality of care. He has literary saved my life twice. In 2006, he found a nodule on my thyroid that even the endocrinologist could not feel. It turned out to cancerous and was removed. Just a few months ago in 2020, he insisted that I… See more

from Bill in GA March 12, 2020 for Richard L. Griffith, MD, PhD

Dr Griffith is not only the best doctor I have ever had, he is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. He is thorough, smart, detailed, kind and caring. When I call or text, I have a response sometimes within minutes. I don’t make a health related move without his advice and blessing. It’s hard for me to imagine a better doctor. Thank you Dr G for all you do to take care of me, as well as many… See more

Dr. Griffith saved my husband's life. I married my husband in 2019 and learned he had not had effective healthcare in many years. We immediately signed him up as an MDVIP member and Dr. Griffith and his wonderful nurses, Nikole and Sarah, began their research into Jim's health issues. Dr. Griffith performed a medical exam on Jim and developed a plan for further tests. It took many months of… See more

from Eleanor in GA March 11, 2020 for Richard L. Griffith, MD, PhD

Dr. Griffith has been my doctor over 10 years. I am so pleased with him and I totally trust him with my health.

He is kind, patient, thorough, knowledgeable and respectful.

from Harold Eddie in GA March 10, 2020 for Richard L. Griffith, MD, PhD

I retired almost 4 years ago and started seeing Dr. Griffith about that same time. I was extremely overweight with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc. Components of my blood tests were not normal. Dr. Griffith gained my confidence immediately. I look forward to each visit with him. He is not only my doctor, he is my friend. Since having him as my doctor and following his counsel… See more
