I had a hair transplant surgery on October 2014 with Dr. Edmond Griffin. A year later, I should see the full result of the surgery, but I look as almost same as before. I spent a lot of money and all I got were 4 months of pain from recovery, waste of donor hair, and a visible linear scar on back of my head. The outrageous thing is that the doctor gave me obvious comb-over photo result during one year post-op check-up. He said he sees a lot of improvements until I said I am not satisfied. Then he started to blame me for not taking prevention medication and said that's the reason I look as same as before the surgery. However, he is the one who chose to do the surgery without prevention medication because if I chose to take the prevention medication I would have not done the surgery. He was busy blaming me that he didn't even touch my hair to evaluate the result. Additionally, for 6 months check-up, I drove one and a half hours to get to his clinic and he only spent 5 minutes. There is a high possibility that I had permanent shock loss from the surgery because I have diffuse hair loss. But the doctor didn't mention it at all. People with diffuse hair loss are not good candidates for the surgery. I asked him to explain the reason of him giving me comb-over photo results, not touching my hair at all for one-year post-op check-up, not giving me danger of permanent shock loss for diffuse hair loss, etc, and he dodged any of my questions. Included photos are his official photos.

The results are incredible. I Can now wear my hair in a ponytail again & not over my face. My mother who is my worst critic was in awe over the perfection of his work. God has definitely gifted him with artistic ability. I had questions post opt & he gave me his home #. He said he would see me on a Sunday to check my question. Sun morn he called just to be sure i was ok. He is the best Dr.

I've gone for laser hair removal (under arms and bikini) with great results. Dr. Griffin always takes his time, goes over the same spots with stronger pulses and makes sure he covers everything. I wouldn't even consider going anywhere else for my cosmetic/laser procedure

Edmond Griffin is full of himself. During my one and final appointment I found Griffin to be pompous, self-absorbed, dismissing, and full of himself. There are other dermatologists in Atlanta who do not present with such pathology, who treat you with respect, and can do just as good a job if not better than Griffin.

I waited almost two hours to see this jerk. He was not at all apologetic and, if anything, acted as though I should be grateful he had time for me at all. He was only willing to spend 5 minutes with me therefore, I did not receive the medical attention I needed and ended up going to a more competent Dermatologist who was willing to take the time needed to address my problems. Griffin thinks way too much of himself and very little about the patients who keep him in business. He has been sanctioned by the Georgia State Licensing Board twice. Had I known this, I never would have wasted my time.

I had a cosmetic procedure by Dr. Griffin and had some concerns. When I went in for post-op visit I told him. He threw a hissy fit stormed out of the office. The medical tech was even shocked. He then wrote all over my chart dollar signs- like that was all I cared about. He is insane and a prima donna. As long as you are happy, he is nice. But have concerns, and you will be in big trouble. Warning to all. p.s. This was done about 5 years ago before they had Kudzu and reviews. I am so glad I can out him now. He did not care about my outcome and only cared about his gigantic ego.

I couldn't be happier with Dr. Griffin. First, he's just the nicest man and so well educated. He made me feel so comfortable b/c I was pretty nervous. The whole staff takes care of you throughout the whole process. I had liposelection of several areas and I'm amazed - at only 1 month I can see such a change in shape, size, conturs... he did a great job. I'm very happy. I'd recommend him to anyone.

Every part of my experience from start to finish with Dr. Griffin and his staff has been an incredible. They are nice, caring, understanding and make you feel as you are their most important patient. My results are better that expected! Dr. Griffin surrounds himself with an amazing staff of friendly, funny, and most importantly knowledgable staff. You know you are in good hands and even have a good time with the whole experience. They are some of the BEST in Atlanta but you will not get any attitude with these folks. I can not recommend them any higher! Did I mention...my results are BETTER than EXPECTED?!?! :)

I have only seen Dr. Griffin once, but during this appointment he spent so much time with me really listening to me. He was great. He also helped to uncover another medical problem that was unrelated to dermatology, but that could become quite serious if I don't see someone else about it. This to me says that he really cares about my overall health.

Dr Griffin specializes in several areas, but he is best known for his ability to treat paiients with hair loss. I have been seeing him for nearly 3 years and have seen tremendous results. He is extremely professional and is willing to actually take the time to listen to you during all doctor appointments.
