Dr. Griffith is very thorough and knowledgeable. He explains everything clearly and always makes sure all of my questions are answered before I leave. I never feel rushed when I see him. His staff is excellent as well, and respond to the MyChart messages in a timely fashion.

I've been seeing Dr J. Griffith for a couple of years and would recommend him to friends and colleagues for men's health issues. He is easy to talk to and is able to relay treatment options competently with a reassuring manor. Nice staff, but there was a bit of wait time to get an appointment and once in exam room but at least he apologized as soon as he came in. *Also; he/staff followed up with results asap!
