Ratings for Dr. Leslie Griffin
Having just moved to halifax & in the process of getting a family doctor I visited the walk in clinic as I suffer with situational anxiety, for which I haven't needed medical assistance with for years. Explaining my current struggles with starting a new stressful job I felt my anxiety was acting up and needed direction. He was cold and practiced terrible bedside mannor. He was completely uninterested and offered little assistance or alternative options. He was arrogant & I felt his approach was extremely poor given the courage it can take seeking help from a stranger. His professionalism is lacking .
I am a tourist from Alberta. I visited the walk in clinic on Friday July 24, 2015. I was very ill with high fever and other symptoms. I got sick in PEI and was seen by an emergency doctor. He sent me home with tylenol. That was on July 21, 2015. I was seen here by Dr Griffen! I am very thankful for that. He is a very professional, knowledgeable doctor. He did an examination and diagnosed an ear infection, a sinus infection and pneumonia!! I am on his prescribed medication and starting to feel better. Thank you Dr. Griffin!!
Dr.Griffin was my family doctor since the day one I immigrated to Canada and I was very pleased as his patient.I would like to recommend him to everybody is looking for family doctor.His behavior with his patients is very positive and hopeful,moreover he listens to his patients very carefully and tries his best to solve their problems.My husband was his patient as well.We are moving to Vancouver and we pray to have a family doctor as good as Dr. Griffin there.We miss him for ever.
Dr. Griffin is extremely personable and helpful. His only downfall is his availability/punctuality. I have waited over 50 minutes for scheduled appointments o more than one occasion. His staff is absolutely disgraceful: rude, unprofessional, often dispenses fake or erroneous pharmaceutical information. They are extremely inefficient and could easily be replaced by a telephone system.
Dr.Griffen is a nice doctor when you can actually see him. Example? I have been waiting for two months for blood test results. He constantly cancels appointments. I have made 4 since Sept and all 4 have been cancelled by him. I have even lost 2 sick days at work because the phone call telling me the appointment is cancelled does not come until the morning of the appointment--too late when you work for the school board and your sick day is booked and a sub is already on the way in...... Frustrating. Needless to say, based on this, Dr. Griffen is now officially my former doctor. I am now looking for a new one.
