Dr. Thomas F Griffin Jr has the following 1 specialty
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Dr Griffin successfully manages the following difficult conditions and a long list of medications for me: bipolar disorder, hypertension, hypothyroid, common variable immune deficiency, osteopenia, high cholesterol, weight control, allergies/asthma and hormone imbalance. He knows when to send me to a specialist for consult/treatment. He coordinates my treatment for some of these conditions with other specialists. I have frequent appointments which are easy to schedule. I have had emergency appointments when I was told to "come in right now" and didn't have to wait at all. He is very caring, very thorough, easy to understand, and takes as much time with me as is needed. I have never felt rushed. He has caught medical issues I have that other doctors have overlooked. He is holistic, and he cares about what is going on in my whole life my relationships, and my lifestyle. He includes me in my plan of care, especially since I am an RN and I want to understand as much as possible and know all the alternatives of a possible treatment or medication. I highly recommend Dr Griffin. He is not only a wonderful practitioner, but a wise friend.
I believe in continuity of care so I have been with Dr. Griffin for over a year. He always messes up my medication, he has put me on the same medication (that didn't work before), he doesn't listen to my concerns, and I feel like he gives me a blanket treatment. He never even remembers even the slightest bit about my case even though I see him almost once a month. He is rude and our appointments are about five minutes long after a long wait, long past the scheduled appointment time. I would recommend finding another doctor.
Dr. Griffin is amazingly knowlegeable and patient. He has helped our daughter tremendously to live a healthy life, even with her serious illnesses.
