from Marlene in GA March 29, 2017 for Richard L. Griffith, MD, PhD

What do I think of Dr Griffith? I think of him as a very good friend that I can sit and talk to for hours about anything that is bothering me. Yes, a good friend who knows a whole lot about medicine and what makes the body tick. I can't imagine seeing anyone else. One of the best perks is I get WAY more than 15 minutes which is what most doctor's are allowed to spend with you.… See more

from Jack in GA March 28, 2017 for Richard L. Griffith, MD, PhD

Dr. Griffith is a very knowledgeable doctor who listens carefully and always has answers to my questions. He is proactive and will always pursue whatever is necessary to resolve any health issue I have. I have complete confidence in the health care decisions he makes in my behalf. I never feel rushed during my appointments.

from Mary Ann and Wayne in GA March 24, 2017 for Richard L. Griffith, MD, PhD

Dr. Griffith is the best doctor we have ever gone to. He saved my husbands life last fall when he found a 99 blockage in the widow-maker with essentially no symptoms except shortness of breath. He really cares for his patients and we tout his exceptional attitude and abilities to any one that will listen. He also spends loads of time with us personally during our annual visit that is almost… See more

from Lena Nadine in GA February 7, 2015 for Richard L. Griffith, MD, PhD

I was a patient of Dr. Griffith before he was MDVIP physician. As a nurse, I have never found any other physician of Dr. Griffith's caliber. He is the most intelligent and caring physician I have ever met. His diagnosis is always correct, and test ordered with results given in a timely fashion. He not only remembers everything...but includes home life a part of my personal care,… See more

from Judy in GA February 24, 2014 for Richard L. Griffith, MD, PhD

There are no words available to express the deepest appreciation my husband and I have for Dr. Richard Griffith.
My husband is here today because of the meticulous approach he takes for patient care. Dr. Griffith ordered an evaluation of a very small shadow on my husbands x-ray that would have normally been a watch shadow. The shadow turned out to be a very early stage cancer that if… See more

from Frances Kathleen in GA February 23, 2014 for Richard L. Griffith, MD, PhD

from Mary Beth in GA February 23, 2014 for Richard L. Griffith, MD, PhD

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… See more

from Kim in GA February 22, 2014 for Richard L. Griffith, MD, PhD

Dr. Griffith has been my primary care doc for 20+ yrs. When being referred to him by a friend who knew I did not have high regard for doctors due to past experiences, but when she said He was a different doctor, she was absolutely correct. Interested in my welfare and concerns for my health as much as I was. Very proactive in heading off and keeping family history stories at bay. Regard for… See more

from Patricia in GA February 21, 2014 for Richard L. Griffith, MD, PhD

Dr. Griffith has been my primary physician for many years, and I couldn't be more pleased. His attention to my health is evident in his active approach and desire to keep my healthy. Prevention is his focus and I'm so appreciative of his attitude and genuine caring for his patients. He or his office team can be reached at any time with any concern or issue. I get immediate… See more

from Rich & Ellen in GA February 20, 2014 for Richard L. Griffith, MD, PhD

We knew we had found the best doctor on the planet on the day of our first visit with you as new patients in 2001. You suspected that Rich had sleep apnea and you were correct. Shortly after that you questioned Ellen's diagnosis of lupus (as diagnosed by a doctor in NH) and found that the diagnosis was incorrect. Through further testing, you narrowed the problem down to Sjogren's… See more
