    As a result of a car accident, I was left with a shoulder that refused to act like it was supposed to.
    I experienced virtually no pain and discomfort was minimal after shoulder replacement. I am as good as new. In Dr. Griffin, I found a physician with an extraordinary combination of professionalism, knowledge, confidence, compassion and skill. ...

    I have been a patient of Dr. Griffins for about a year.

Through the use of scans, MRI’s, and x-rays, Dr. Griffin has fully explained to me the problems my shoulder has and the exact procedure he will do when my surgery cannot be postponed any longer...

And now he would be my surgeon...

    I had the great fortune of meeting Dr. Justin Griffin on September 23rd, 2016, 2 days after having the misfortune of falling and breaking my left elbow in 5 places..(aka Ulna) Aside from my pain and fear of surgery, I was most concerned that my husband and I would have to cancel our bucket list trip to the Amalfi Coast scheduled for October 10th... a long-awaited trip that had been more than a year in the planning...
