The nurses were kind but the doctors were mad aggressive. Two doctors were having an egotistical fight about which one was better. Right in front of me might I point out. They were rather young too. Assuming they are residents or very young doctors. But either way I felt like it wasn’t a great hospital to come to for an ear infection. Wasn’t given the kind of attention I expected.

My brother was in a car accident four days ago and it’s been tough.
Luckily we are in a good hospital.
Griffin has some of the most caring medical professionals I’ve ever come across.
Really happy they were there to help us as a family and make sure Michael was getting all the help he needed.
Might I also point out that this hospital gets brownie points for being 100% neat.
Very impressed by that.

This hospital needs some serious loving because they were perfect for us. So many things to say I’ve actually made a list of things. All positives and one tiny suggestion at the end
  • It looks brand new. I know it’s been up and running for a while but they renovated the place for sure. And it happens every year I’m assuming because two years ago when I came here it looked brand new as well. So they do a good job keeping it nice and classy looking to keep them patients rolling in. Either way, easy on the eyes.
  • The waiting rooms are the best. You know how normal waiting rooms are dingy, always cold- either the heating system is broken or a broken window, and just gives really bad vibes? Well not this one. It has free coffee and snacks. I didn’t know it was free until the third day and couldn’t believe I let three days of free snacks go by. They also have fast internet and a huge ass TV. The fireplace makes it look like it’s a set on a TV show or something. The self playing piano adds a classy touch to the aesthetic as well. It reminds me more of a hotel than a hospital. That’s one good thing, you don’t feel like you’re a patient whos stuck at a hospital.
  • Doctors, nurses are *chef’s kiss* SO GOOD. Not only do they make use of the latest technology, their insight and willingness to help the needy and poor is astonishing. I’m so used to reading reviews about how greedy and selfish hospitals are but let me tell you something- Griffin is anything else but. The nurses are very god BTW- they don’t poke you randomly for no good reason.
  • Technology used is state of the art. Don’t know too much about technology but my boyfriend was hella impressed. Also valet parking for patients and their relatives. How cool is that?
Suggestion: cut down the waiting time. I know it’s a big hospital and there are only so many employees but waiting for 2-3 hours just to get a room is bizarre. Just a suggestion.

Never come to this hospital. Big mistake. 10 minutes in emergency room they will charge you $1k. All they can say is money money money no treatment happens all over the counter medicine that you can buy yourself trust me it’s a scam

So there’s supposed to be a team that handles the admin and management? They are so ineffective. If you tell them their mistkaes they get angry and threaten to kick you out. Clearly not willing to take any suggestions either. If you want to talk to someone about a problem that clearly stemmed from the hospital don’t bother because they would rather listen to music or talk to their spouses while at work, where they should be – OH I DON’T KNOW- be working?!?!

If you guys have watched Jane the Virgin you’d understand this: my doctor was like Dr. Luisa. The day I went in she was so freaking distracted. When I told her that my eyes were swelling up in the mornings she brought her stethoscope towards me. I was so confused. When I tried to clarify what the issue was she pretended like she was just doing this on routine. But the nurses outside had already taken my vitals so I knew she was bluffing. Tried calling her out on it but she wouldn’t budge.

That’s the problem with the doctors here. too stuck up, don’t care about the patients at all. It’s all about them being “doctors” and “Educated” that they think they couldn’t listen to another soul. There is a lot of politics going on in this hospital too and you do NOT want to get caught up in all of that. I tell ya, I just wanted to get out of there ASAP.

Can’t put a price on my life – it’s precious- as is this hospital. Owe them everything. Was hanging to life by a mere thread when they took me in and treated me. For months I showed no progress and my family was certain I was going to be in a coma all my life. But alas, Griffin hospital saved me.. so thankful.
