Thomas Griffith, ND
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 in the State of Washington included integrative medical clerkship and residency with supervising ND’s and MD’s. His patients know him as “Doc Griffith” and his practice has been a central hub of the greater Olympia area holistic medical community since 2006.
His practice has provided high quality, patient centered primary care across the spectrum of conditions and his experience has helped guide safe and effective treatment and prevention that the community has relied upon. Areas of specialty include:
- Men’s and Women’s hormonal health (Andropause, Menopause, Thyroid disorders)
- Cardiovascular Conditions (hypertension, hypercholesterol, atherosclerosis)
- Cancer supportive care
- Skin cancer evaluation and biopsy
- Sinus conditions

As a long term survivor of stage III colon cancer, Dr. Griffith has spent considerable time in the role of patient. This motivates his passion to cultivate compassion and humanity in his interactions with patients. The medical process can deepen traumatic wounds and his patient approach and patient advocacy is valued by those navigating complex and serious diagnoses. A physician can fight disease, but facilitating “healing” requires building respect, trust and working together. He is honored that his patients give him the opportunity to help.
Dr. Griffith’s work with patients and their providers assures competent, complete and empowered care based on the broadest spectrum of options.
Dr. Griffith is a native of Western Washington and loves this place we call home. When not caring for patients, he enjoys meditating, yoga, hiking and backpacking in the Olympics and spending time at the coast.
