5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Brilliant Sculptor of the Body

Dr. Griffin was extremely professional and honest about the positive and negative components of my procedure, as well as the risks. He answered all of my questions with great detail, caring patience, and absolutely no persuasive tactics. Fortunately everything went better than well and I could not be more pleased with the results. He is not only a skilled surgeon and doctor, but a brilliant...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Fantastic, ecstatic with results

Dr. Griffin preformed abdominoplasty with lipo of hips through anterior incision and lipo to upper arms bilaterally. I did my extensive "homework" prior to having procedures done by Dr. Griffin and intended to have multiple consults done prior to choosing surgeon but felt so fully confident after meeting w/Dr. Griffin and staff that I had found practice for me that I did not seek additional...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Perfect, wonderful experience

Dr. Griffin did an amazing job. He listened to exactly what I asked for and surgery and recovery went very smoothly. He called me to check up on me the day of surgery and his nurses called multiple times as well. I would recommend him to anyone and will be going back to him for any future procedures.

Dr. Don Griffin is great. He listens to your wants and is very truthful and informative. He does an amazing job and I am completely satisfied. He made me feel very comfortable with the whole process.

Dr. Griffin put my mind at ease. I knew others who had procedures done and everyone had only positive things to say. I am very pleased and would have no problem going back to him in the future

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

29 Year Old, Mom of 5 - Nashville, TN

I have nothing but positive things to say about Dr. Griffin and his staff. Everyone there makes you feel so welcome and very comfortable. My surgery went perfect and the outcome was beyond amazing. I'm very glad I chose Dr. Griffin for my breast augmentation. I could not have hoped for a better experience!

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty...Great Experience and Results

I researched surgeons in Nashville, Miami and Toronto in order to find the very best to operate on my eyes. I had been wanting to do an upper and lower blepharoplasty for years and the truth is that I was pretty nervous about it. It is my eyes, after all! I decided on Dr. Griffin as he has a great reputation and embodies professionalism and integrity, as does his whole team at the clinic....

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Great experience

Dr. Griffin is amazing! I had breast augmentation. I was very nervous prior to my surgery. He was comforting and reassuring. Post-op he made it very clear what I should expect. Everything went perfectly. His nurses and front office staff were very nice and helpful as well.

53 Yr Old Mom Finally Getting Rid of Spare Tire

Two days from now, I'll be in surgery. Something I've wanted and needed for 20+years. My babies were 9.5lbs and 10.1lbs. and they ruined my once near perfect figure, hahaha. For years, I battled my weight, working hard then giving up....emotionally eating, mindless eating, exercising not exercising. Taking care of everything and everyone else, but often neglected myself. I allowed my...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

36 Year Old Breast Lift with Implants - Nashville, TN

Dr. Griffin and his staff are wonderful! I originally had a consultation with Dr. Griffin two years ago as well as several other doctors. I knew then Dr. Griffin was who I would choose. I didn't have the procedure done at that time. When I did decide the time was right my file was still available and I felt completely comfortable and confident in him. He explained the process well and provided guidance to help me make the best decision for the result I was looking for. His staff are understanding and can answer your questions, are reassuring and helpful. After two weeks incisions are healing nice and feel confident they will continue to do so. I have an additional appointment scheduled for Botox and am excited to see results. I'm glad I chose Dr. Griffin!
