An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.

My husband and I just moved to Raleigh and needed a new primary physician. My impression was different from husbands, since I have worked for doctors most of my life and understand the importance of finding the right fit. He was NOT for me! No bedside manner, he hardly raised his head to talk to me ... took down information without any concern or interest to get to know me. Too quick and hardly did anything but listen to our lungs and heart. My husband said he doesn't need a best friend and would go back to him ... I feel building relationships with your patient helps to create trust and encourages your patient the ability to be honest and open about their healthcare. Dr. Mc Griffiths seems unapproachable and too curt in conversation. I felt like a name on his clipboard and no more. I had blood work done and I have changed my next appointment to see someone else and I'm encouraging my husband to do the same. I would advise Dr. Mc Griffith to read the review and take a better look at himself. I never write a review but this had to be seen and heard!!!
I have been to Dr. Griffiths for over three years and during this time have had several visiting with him, mostly routine labs. I have had three incidents that have now prompted me to look for another primary care doctor. He is not thorough in his diagnosis and is not dedicated to finding out what's wrong with you. The first two problems were corrected by me, having to ask another physician about treatment. My current problem has not been handled in a professional manner. I have had to question him on several occasions about how to correct my current illness. My recent lab tests came by abnormal, yet he told me to wait for six weeks before coming back to see if they went away. When lab tests are abnormal, there is a problem. I questioned his reply and what treatment would be appropriate for me. He replied back that he would do additional tests..which he should have done in the first place. If you are looking for a physician that will treat colds, flu, and yearly lab work, then go to him. If you want a thorough medical provider, look elsewhere.
Condensing and Rude! Seemed more interested in supporting the ABC Store, like the other reviewer said. Wanted override other physicians orders including specialist. Did not check me for what I went there for and did have time for me. I would not take a pit bull to him! My first and last appointment with him!
