Specialties

Dr. Cynthia C Griggs has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

It is my opinion that this Dr is obviously incompetent. She has twice prescribed the incorrect medication for the patient, one of which could have been fatal, had the patient taken it. In adddition to that, when called to get assistance with correcting the medication, the Dr. was extremely distant and unapologetic. Rather she was dismissive and failed to offer any reasons for the mistakes. I strongly believe the AMA needs to review the practices and license of this physician.

This doctor is extremely incompetent! She prescribed incorrect, dangerous medications which were later discovered and discontinued with utter disbelief, by another physician. Moreover, she waited until patient was on brink of renal failure before giving dialysis. The AMA should investigate and consider revoking her license or at least require an aptitude test for her specialty.
