excellent care - really good physician

I've been a patient of Dr. Griffiths for over 10 years and he is one of the most amazing doctors I've ever known. I have an unusual sinus issue that he persevered with over the years to keep at bay and a little less than 2 years ago he discovered a way to surgically fix my issue. I still need follow up care from him for other sinus-related issues and he is always available. [...]

The wait time is excessive and you are not updated as to how long the wait will be. My time is precious just as the doctor's is but often the wait time is excessive without explanation or regard for my time.

Dr. Griffiths is top notch and has the best bedside manner. you really feel cared for by him and Dr. [...] and their office. I just feel blessed to be cared for by them.

overall good experience

Chester Griffiths is an excellent provider, very approachable, takes time with the patient, and has a great bed side manner.

very good

Dr. Griffiths is one of the best doctors I've seen. Incredibly personable as well an amazing medical provider.

I feel that Dr. Griffiths quickly knew exactly what was going on to cause my chronic condition and that for the first time I may have some lasting relief/cure to the problem, despite my having been to several other doctors about the same issue with no lasting success over many years.

Dr Griffiths was superior to any other physician that I saw related to my illness. He was the only one who helped my condition and offered a solution. I hold him in the highest regard.

Dr. Griffiths has always given me the most excellent care and always above my expectations. outstanding!

Dr. Griffiths saw me on short notice, and was very attentive to my needs and concerns. He is a a Grade A Physician!

Dr Griffiths is truly an amazing doctor and person. hes truly excellent in his craft as a doctor but also genuinely cares and listens to his patience. I am so grateful for being under his care and would highly recommend him many times over. he is a great addition for eh St John's family!

I felt the doctor listened to my and explained his thoughts and processes well.

My initial experience with Dr Griffiths was an extremely long wait which I had to reschedule the appointment to another date. I have since had occasional issues with wait time. I did not always feel that my time was valued. He did an excellent job with my sinus surgery! At times he can have a condescending manner.

Excellent experience.

very calming and comforting; he knows what he is doing and you know you will be well taken care of and listened to completely

Dr. Griffiths is the first ENT I have had in over 20 years who adequately addresses my medical condition. He has instituted an effective program so that I have been able to "manage" my health condition. He is very responsive & professional.

The main issue I made this appt for was not addressed.

Everyone in the office spent a lot of time answering questions and actually listening to our concerns. Things were explained in an easy to understand, yet not "dumbed down."

I have been seeing Dr Chester Griffiths for over 20 years. Their are just not sufficient words to express my gratitude for all he has done for me. I see Dr Griffiths for a chronic issue, that at one time was extremely serious. He got me through the crisis, and has kept the problem in check. I do not believe that I could have received better care from anyone else.

I especially like that this provider wasn't dismissive of my symptoms and found a solution to my problems.
