    Dr. Griffiths is an ideal provider. I am sure she is a "find" for UCSF: extremely competent with masterful expertise to which most internists as young as she are still only aspiring. In addition she fosters a compassionate and caring practice. I feel most fortunate to have Dr. Griffiths as my primary care physician.

    Dr. Griffiths raises the bar In Quality Care as one of the best possible providers UCSF has to offer. I'm forever grateful for the compassionate and understanding care she has provided and continues to provide me. Always taking the time to listen and never feeling rushed Dr. Griffiths always me makes me feel inclusive in my plan of care and I feel she cares about me as a person. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Griffiths to friends and family as UCSF is lucky to have such a dedicated high quality provider. Thank you!

    Everything taken care of in a friendly efficient way. Great jab from nurse who administered flu vaccine! First time ever I've experienced almost no pain/soreness in arm post-vaccination! Great lesson that injection technique can make all the difference.

    Since this was my first visit with my PC much of the time was collecting data about me and getting to know me. Physical exam was very sparse. Not sure if that is the norm these days but my last PC was more hands on.
