Welcome to the website for H. Winter Griffith, M.D., a leader and award winner in the field of patient education. Patient education involves helping patients learn how to care for themselves and to participate in decisions about their health care and to adopt a more active role in their treatment.
Dr. Griffith is the author of numerous books on medical information for patients. His goal in writing these books is to help patients learn more about their health problems. He realized that during office visits with their doctor, many patients are often too worried and preoccupied to understand what information the doctor makes available to them. At best, they forget specifics by the time they get home, since there is nothing to stimulate the memory.
Dr. Griffith's books are written in an easy-to-read format that makes it possible for readers to quickly find answers to their questions about illnesses, treatments, medications and other medical concerns. The information in the books is helpful not only to patients, but to their families and caregivers as well.
These books are not a substitute for your health care provider's help when you need professional medical care. Always try to work closely with your medical team and follow instructions from your health care provider. Be sure to ask questions if you are unsure or have any concerns about the diagnosis or the treatment that is recommended.
