Board-certified family medicine physician Steven Griffin, DO, has practiced medicine in the Pittsburg area for over a decade. He began his career in emergency medicine but switched to family medicine in 2009. “I believe seeing these families in a continuity setting has deepened my ability to make a positive investment in the lives of patients.”
Before medicine, Dr. Griffin had extensive experience in medical research, underwent graduate-level education in biblical studies in seminary and worked in upper-level management in the corporate world of information systems software design and consulting. He also is a professional speaker and has spent many years instructing others on the art of public speaking.
As a father of eight – four girls and four boys – he is uniquely qualified to provide medical care to all stages of life. One of his children is a special-needs child and allows him unique insight into the special-needs community. “I most enjoy listening well to patients and providing sound wisdom to navigate the intricacies of life – medical, emotional and everything in between.”

A great doctor and man. I had to switch doctors and was not looking forward to it, at all! My husband had just died, he was 53, and I was in terrible shape. My old doctor had left the practice and didn't refill my meds. Dr Griffin knew right away that I needed to be back on my meds and gave my body time before my routine labs. I broke down right there, he was kind and supportive something I had not found since my husband's death. He hugged me and said everything will be ok, let's get you better so you can tackle the world. Thank God for directing me to Dr Griffin, I was scheduled with another doctor but I needed my meds sooner then when he could see me.

This has to be one of the most genuinely caring doctors I've been to in my life. I highly recommend him. He doesn't just hear the words.coming out of your mouth, he listens.

As someone new to this area and who has really struggled to find a physician I was skeptical about someone whose office was in a hospital. The staff at the office are all really warm and kind and I was comfortable with Dr. Griffin immediately. He is a very warm and thoughtful gentleman and does his work in a manner that is both professional and very thorough. My health has been declining in several ways and the doctor quickly ordered bloodwork and tests done. He also referred me to a specialist and they got me in the very next day!! I have only met Dr. Griffin once but I am already a big fan! I highly reccomend him to young and old. He also sees children and told us he is a father of 8! Wow!
