Meet Our Doctors

We know you have many options of physicians to choose from in Pasco County to entrust the care of your child. You can read about their professional credentials and have the opportunity to meet them outside of our office at one of the many community events My Pediatrics sponsors and participates in.

Still not sure? Check out our Facebook page and see what our patients have to say. 


Medical Director, Dr. Griffen

Dr. Griffen and his wife Leslie have four sons, Talan, Noah, Cooper, Luke and two daughters Madeline and Charlotte.  He enjoys spending time with his family boating and enjoying the Florida sunshine.

A little about me:
To say that I love kids is an understatement.
Leslie and I appreciate the busyness and joys of parenting! Being a dad and being a doctor to your children is so rewarding. It's exciting to see how much your children have grown since we opened the practice.
Thank your for placing your confidence in me and my staff. Our goal is to provide the kind of care we would expect our own kids to receive.
