“I love to educate and help patients understand the physiological process underlying their condition so they can make the best choices for themselves. I believe in treating the whole person, not just their illness.” 

With over 16 years of clinical nursing experience and concentrated training in intensive care, cardiology,  and primary care, Samantha B. Griffin offers her patients compassion and a collaborative approach to comprehensive care.  As a family nurse practitioner, Samantha is responsible for performing physical exams, ordering and performing diagnostic tests, prescribing medications, developing treatment plans, and treating acute and chronic illnesses, conditions, and injuries for her primary care patients. 

 Samantha is passionate about health improvement plans, weight management, nutrition, healthy living, and patient education. Her patients quickly learn that she will work with them consistently to help them make incremental and impactful diet and lifestyle changes to improve their health exponentially. “I enjoy helping people feel better and want to inspire them to be their healthiest selves.” Samantha’s advice for her patients is as simple as it is crucial. “Stay hydrated and take your Vitamin D as both are super important for many bodily functions.”

 As a Roseburg native, Samantha is passionate about caring for her neighbors and community. “I grew up in Roseburg. I have lived in Washington, Hawaii, and New York before returning home to be closer to my family.” When not caring for her patients, Samantha can be found spending time with her son, exploring the world, seeing family and friends, reading, gardening, sewing, completing home improvement projects, and traversing the great outdoors
