Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have been a patient of Dr. Griffen's office ​since 1986 and have been extremely pleased with his professionalism, knowledge and thoroughness. He has monitored my transition from wearing glasses and contact lenses through successful LASIK surgery. His staff is personable, efficient and the selection of eyewear is wonderful. Although I moved to Maryland in 2013, I continue to see Dr. Griffen for my yearly exams. I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. Sincerely"
