After 23 years with Kaiser Permanente as a podiatrist, including roles as the Department Chief and co-director of the Toe and Flow program with Vascular Surgery, Dr. Griffin decided to partner with providers at OHSU to create a multidisciplinary functional limb preservation program. This program was created to comprehensively treat patients through a core approach of vascular surgery and podiatry (Toe and Flow), allowing everyone to move through the world a little easier. 

In his spare time, he enjoys playing soccer with the “old guys,” talking with friends, and his dog Audrey.
