Marcus L. Griffin, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My approach to healthcare is like a ship and its crew. Each member has their specific job and responsibility. You the patient are the captain of your ship and I am your navigator on this journey to wellness and wellbeing.

As your MDVIP-affiliated physician I will be up to date with the current literature and advances in medical care. I believe in a holistic approach to good health to include diet, exercise, supplements and alternative care. Availability to subspecialty care when needed will assure that you will receive the best possible care available. Engaging the patient to be active in their care is vital to success in completing the journey to wellness.

As your physician, I will be available to answer questions and give advice. You can expect me to be available to help guide you in times of stormy weather. Respecting you and your time by being efficient and timely will allow us to work as a team to achieve our chosen goals.

With my guidance and direction you will have all the tools to make the right decisions as we embark together on this journey to wellness and wellbeing.
