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.

My daughter first started going to Dr. Griffin at least 7 years ago; we were so impressed with him that my husband and I signed up to be under his care, too. Words cannot express the admiration and trust and love that we have in Dr. Griffin. Would not go to any other doctor.

from John in AZ March 15, 2018 for Thomas F. Griffin Jr., MD

Thanks Dr Griffin. I was first a patient when you were at Carondolet. Even then, with an enormous patient load, you took time to show you cared about my health. While I didn't follow you immediately to MDVIP, I am glad I am part of your practice now.
You always take time to really listen and your down-to-earth, country doc manner of assessing health issues is greatly appreciated… See more
