Dr. Michele Y. Griffith
Empowering you to take control of your health.
It’s a new chapter in my life and I’m eagerly anticipating - without expectation- what it has in store. After being a doc for over 30 years I realize I’m still as fascinated by practice of medicine as I was at the age of 12 watching Marcus Welby, MD on TV. “
What works for my family” has been the guiding light in my career choices but now that the youngest of 5 has graduated high school, “mom” is not only switching gears but “putting it into high gear!” No empty nester syndrome here as I was unraveling my nest at the start of my son’s senior year.
“The best education” as defined by my father led me to be an ivy league trained physician - from undergrad through residency but my traditional career path ended there. I was pregnant with my first child the 4th year of medical school at Columbia/ College of Physicians and Surgeons and finished all graduation requirements a week before delivery. I took time off from training many times ( the first time for medical reasons). In retrospect, I am so grateful for those special days spent bonding and breastfeeding my children during their critical infant and toddler years.
My longest break of 5 years occurred due to hyperemesis of pregnancy during my internship. I resigned, gave birth to my second and then 3rd child before retiring to the rigors of training when the youngest was almost 2. during which time I had my 2nd and 3rd child before restarting my internship after resigning from my first internship due to hyperemesis of pregnancy. Now… 5 children and several divorces later… been there…done that another chapter begins.
DR.G: REIMAGINING HEALTHCARE
Dr. G Cares is about who I am and my decades long God given gift to connect. It’s about sharing what I know but also learning along the way because I will always be a student of life- eager to learn and experience new things.
I’ve been practicing internal medicine for over 30 years and Lifestyle Medicine for 15- I’m certified in both. I’ve been telemedicine since 2008 and now serve as president of an international organization with over 110 countries and territories so I lecture and train telemedicine.
