Dr. Thomas Griffith
Dr. Thomas Griffith is a graduate of the National University of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, OR. His training to become a licensed primary care physician included integrative medical clerkship and residency with supervising ND’s and MD’s, advanced training and study in intravenous vitamin therapy and heavy metals chelation, completion of the University of Queensland’s Primary Care Skin Cancer and Dermo-scope training, non-narcotic pain management, and cancer support.
As a survivor of stage III colon cancer, Dr. Griffith has spent considerable time in the role of patient. He strives to cultivate more humanity in his interactions with patients. A physician can fight disease, but facilitating “healing” requires building respect, trust and working together. Dr. Griffith’s work with patients and their providers assures competent, complete and empowered care based on the broadest spectrum of options. He strongly believes that patients need a medical advocate as they navigate the course of their healthcare and he’s honored that his patients give him that opportunity.
Dr. Griffith is a native of Western Washington and has lived in Olympia for several years. He is an avid outdoor enthusiast. He and his wife enjoy hiking, backpacking, kayaking and spending time at the coast. They have two young grand-daughters, two dogs and a cat that keep them busy when they’re not caring for patients.
