Marcus C. Griffith, MD
I speak: English
My gender: Male
Where I practice
I reside in Lithonia with my wife and two children. I also am a former collegiate track and field record-holder, and I am an avid golfer and fisherman.My wife and I have recently completed a children's book on childhood obesity, "The Tale of Two Athletes: The Story of Jumper and the Thumper." We have developed a multi-disciplinary approach that incorporates mental health, nutrition and exercise to tackle childhood obesity through an inspirational children's story.
About my practice
I owned and operated my own practice for nearly 20 years prior to joining Kaiser Permanente. I am still a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry for Morehouse School of Medicine, and I am board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. I began working for Kaiser Permanente in March 2012, and I now practice child, adolescent and adult psychiatry in Kaiser Permanente's Behavioral Health Department.
How I thrive
I try to live life to its full potential each day. I believe that keeping a positive mental attitude brings balance to your life. Kaiser Permanente believes in health and wellness through keeping a healthy mind, body and spirit. It is a pleasure to be part of an organization that truly wants its members to thrive!
