My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My philosophy of caring for my patients centers around helping them enjoy a healthier life by working together to improve their state of mind, body, spirit and relationships. Specifially, I have found that assisting people in managing their cardiovascular health risks usually enhances all four of these areas as well as their entire lives. My staff and I focus on enjoying life rather than avoiding death. The most common side effect of a healthy life is a longer one. This has been my philosophy for years and is the subject of my personal health planning book, Feeling Good for Life.

Dr. Griffin is a fine, caring, understanding and professional doctor. I feel very fortunate to have him! He has helped me through some very tough times in my life and I don't know what I would have done without him....literally!
He is a very good man and I appreciate everything about him.

from Dieter March 27, 2017 for Thomas F. Griffin Jr., MD

When I met Dr.Griffin ~17 years ago, I waited well over 30 minutes in the exam room. When Dr.Griffin finally came into the room and i questioned him about the delay.
Here is what he said:
There was a problem with a patient and I promise you that when you have a problem, I will not walk away from you either!
I knew then that I found my Doctor.
That was before he became… See more

Thanks, Tom, for always being there when we need you!

from James March 22, 2017 for Thomas F. Griffin Jr., MD

I was absolutely delighted with the opportunity to join MDVIP. Dr. Griffin has been instrumental in the whole lifestyle change I have experienced. I am a big man and through his guidance I do not have high blood pressure. Not even close to being diabetic and have completely changed my life by following his guidance on healthy choices for eating. All in all i am a different person today and… See more

from Richard in AZ March 25, 2016 for Thomas F. Griffin Jr., MD

My MDVIP doctor is Dr. Tom Griffin, in Tucson AZ. He was my primary care physician for about 7 years prior to switching to MDVIP. I knew he was a doctor who cared prior to MDVIP, but there were constraints within the system that prevented him from the kind of care my wife and I receive now - in MDVIP. I appreciate the opportunity to be seen quickly when there is a need for that, and I even… See more

from Thomas in AZ February 8, 2015 for Thomas F. Griffin Jr., MD

I have been Dr. Thomas Griffin's patient for over 20 years. Wherever he takes his practice, I go. I think he is an excellent physician. He treats me like family, and a friend.

from Alice in AZ February 22, 2014 for Thomas F. Griffin Jr., MD

Dr. Griffin has been my provider for over 4 years. I have had many medical problems that needed prompt attention, not only has he attended to my needs promptly. But with compassion and understanding. One incident that Stands out in my mind was whenI was diagnosed with breast cancer in August of 2012. Dr. Griffin gave me the news in such a positive manner that I was able to go through the… See more

from William in AZ February 20, 2014 for Thomas F. Griffin Jr., MD

I have had Dr Griffin as a PCP for about 14 years. My wife moved to Dr Griffin when we decided to move with him to MDVIP.

In the course of the years we have been with MDVIP Bonnie has undergone two heart operations at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland. Dr Griffins experience and attention to detail was invaluable during these periods. His availability at odd times was without question… See more

from Dennis in CA February 11, 2014 for Thomas F. Griffin Jr., MD

I have been Dr. Griffin's patient for many years. I know that he is truly a man of integrity and takes his profession very seriously. I recently had my annual physical examination and he spent nearly two hours with me without ever looking at his watch or appearing he would like to get on to something else. I appreciate the MDVIP concept as I never hear anyone else I speak to say that… See more

from David and Cynthia in AZ February 10, 2014 for Thomas F. Griffin Jr., MD

Tom has become a member of our family. Going to his office is always a pleasant experience. Tom always takes the time to understand your needs and always comes up with an appropriate solution. He always listens. Tom is always looking for ways to reduce medication rather than expand it's consumption. He is a great life coach and takes the health and well being of his patients very… See more
