I lost a rabbit because I didn't take him to an exotics. While searching for an exotics vet Griffin was highly recommended to me. He did my Scooby's necropsy after he passed and helped us learn that he died due to complications with the neuter he had just recieved. We now take our new rabbit, Luna, there because he is the best. His care is expensive but as far as we are concerned the money is worth keeping our new baby alive!

Pros: Personable, Friendly, Knowledgable

Cons: NONE

Dr.G is NOT all about money. He cuts costs to make care affordable! If an animal dies under anesthesia doesn't make the vet bad .Anesthesia is a risk in itself. If the animal has any undetected problems this makes anesthesia even more of a risk. As for emergency hours, this vet has met me after hours at midnight when I would have to bring my pets in during an emergency and he never even made me pay that night! Due to unforeseen circumstances, I had the misfortune that has set our funds into total depletion.I still owe alot of money and I am embarrassed that I have not sent him any money in over a year and not ONE TIME have they called and hounded me nor have they sent me to collection. Because he cares!If he was all about money I would have been sent to collection and had been forced to pay. I am going to be getting disability and the first person that will get a check is Griffin exotics. I have no vet for my exotics I am too embarrassed to face him and let me tell you there is nobody out there that can compare.I know people that drive three hours for his services.

i've been to several "exotic vets" in town and no one even comes close! i've never been turned away and have been squeezed in any time i need. i have mutiple reptiles,and of all the vets i've seen, dr. griffin is the best. he really cares and knows his stuff when it comes to reptiles. in the time that i have been using griffin exotics, i have lost several animals but absolutely to no fault of dr. griffin.his staff is very kind, compassionate and actually gives a damn. i will never go anywhere else. just look at his website. he may not be as big as some of the others like petsmart or carolina veterinary specialists, but those places are general exotic vets and specialize in nothing.( in my opinion) and in response to the previous review that i read, dr griffin is not interested only in making money, he really cares. most people dont have the husbandry skills needed to care for exotic pets nor dot hey take the time to investigate these animals before purchasing them. no matter who you chose, do the research and know your animals habits and needs before you purchase. most important of all, always purchase from a reputable breeder and not some big name pet store. the differences will floor you! these animals are part of your family and when you need help, i recommend griffin avain & exotics.

Pros: small office,more personalized attention

Although the staff and Vet. are friendly and the facility is very clean. Be aware of certain things.
I do not consider the care that my rabbit received to be good. I took her there for over a year and she continued to have runny eyes until I stopped taking her there and caring for her eyes myself. She has been symptom free since.She was put under anthsesia one time to have her teeth trimmed, it took her over 5 days to recover from being put to sleep for the procedure, at which time we were afraid we might loose her. (she is young and strong), during that visit a front tooth was broken length wise from the root and NEVER grew back. I cannot say that I had problems there with my parrot. But he only had a physical. It was evident that he did not like the place, as he would not talk while there, but talks at all other vets. During this time, the Vet. had a rabbit in his clinic that was"dropped" off, he kept it for a short while and when I inquired about the bunny later, I found out that he had put it under antithesia and it died as a result. (he has no pets of his own, which makes me wonder) His hours of operation are the same as working people 8:30-5 M-F so it is immpossible to take your pet there without taking a day of vacation in order to do so. He has no emergency hours, and the closest one is in Huntersville, where that Avian vet. is also hard to find available if not during normal working hours. The Vet. is very concerned with making money, and continually complains about his working hours despite not working a 40 hour week, they only work a half day on Wed. Do not buy the parrot DVD, it is useless and contains wrong information.Be aware he cleans heavily with bleach products which are not good for most exotics. On the plus side his assistant April is excellent!!! Dr. Griffin is a nice guy, but not my first choice for the care of my beloved pets.

Pros: April and other staff members are great. And Dr. Griffin is nice.

Cons: Vet. care is questionable and hours or operation do not cater to the customer.
