Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Griffith's Care Philosophy

As a family physician, I care for people of all ages. I emphasize prevention to keep patients healthy. I have worked with many of my patients and their families for over 25 years, and relationships are what I value most about my practice. I have extra certification in geriatrics, and that is a significant part of my practice, though I still see pediatric patients and enjoy all ages. I see patients in my own office in the Pavilion at TMC-Lakewood, and I spend about half of my time in the education of medical students and family medicine residents. I find working with learners keeps me more current in my practice and is also very fulfilling. The specialty of Family Medicine is, I believe, the best hope for providing the US with high quality, cost-efficient care.
