Dr Wakitha Griffin/My Dermatologist

My experiences have been excellent and with better than expected results. I will continue to use her services and highly recommend others. She is 5 minutes from my job. I practically walk in, get my services, enjoy my visit and head back to work. Simple!

AVOID "Dr. Wakitha Griffiths" at all costs!!!!!

WORST doctor ever!!! This woman, Dr. Wakitha Griffiths, is a money-hungry, rude, heinous doctor with ZERO bedside manner. Her diagnosis was wrong, and cost me hundreds of dollars seeking out additional care to get it right, and get correct treatment. AVOID HER at all costs!!!! There are so any other good, qualified Derms in the area.

Patient

I went to Dr. Griffin because I had a reaction to some hair dye. She gave me a wash for three weeks - my scalp continue to run the entire month. After three and one-half weeks she gave me a heavy dose of pedinisone. I did not work and my blood sugar shot up. I now have PAD and walk with a limp. My foot became sore for 10 months. When I showed her what happened to my foot - she stated she did not know what had happened and I need to check with another doctor - dah. She never responded to my calls. I did go to another dermotologist and he gave me a creme which cleared my scalp in two days. It has been ten month and I am still limping because of the PAD and that medicine.

Not the best. Not the worst

I found her via an ad in the Creative Loafing paper. After checking reviews, most people said one issue per visit/per copay, but I decided to give her a try because her ratings were good. The office is nice, and so are the staff members! However, I sense that she is not the best person to work under because she seems somewhat condescending to the nurses and nurse's assistants. Downside: I had her examine a secondary skin issue, and after looking with her light thingy, she literally said "I don't know what THAT is." No biopsy, no nothing! Ma'am, you're a DERMA-FREAKING-TOLOGIST its kinda the reason I came to you. Smh. The reviews were right, ONE issue per visit. Downside: parking is not validated, so add about $5 to whatever your copay is. Factor in gas, and it can be a costly visit for one issue per copay. Downside: she is VERY bust, so the visit seems rushed. Straight to the point, no non-sense approach. Plus side: the chief complaint was addressed and her recommendations/RX worked well. Plus side: she is very classy and nice to the patient. Plus side: refills are easy to request
