I read somewhere Dr, Kendall Griffith relocated to Atlanta - though he's still listed in STX physician directories.

Anyone know about this?

Are there other cardiologists on STX (or STT or PR) with whom you have had experience - good bad or indifferent?

Thanks much for an input.

Dr. Galiber is good, but the wait time is his lobby takes forever.

Dr. Griffith did move but will return to STX monthly to see patients. Dr. Manning (he is her husband) will return to the island every 3 months to see her patients. DK who covers emergencies for either one of them though. Prior to the move, wait time for each was often over 2.5 hours. Hope wait time is not worse now.

Dr. Sterling is the new(ish) cardiologist on St Thomas at SRMC Heart and Lung. He is a great guy. thumbs up Dr. Griffith is doing some procedures there also.

If you have a serious cardiac problem and your doctor won't be back on Island for 1, or even worse, 3 months, what good is that?!

To accept that as good medicine is crazy. What patient would put up with that kind of care? Why would a doc even have patients who they couldn't see for three months if the patient had serious medical problems??!! Only in the VI.
