“Amazing doctor and person. 50 years ago, I had a bad experience with an ingrown toenail procedure. What a difference half a century and better techniques make! Dr Griffen is respectful, courteous, personable and most importantly, COMPETENT, CAPABLE, and PROFESSIONAL. Schooled on the most up to date therapies and procedures, he PAINLESSLY permanently solved my issue. What a breath of fresh air in an era of rushed office visits. 6 out of 5 stars! Above and beyond!!a Bill Guilfoyle Orange Beach”
