Jackson Griggs, MD


Dr. Jackson Griggs is a faculty attending at the Waco Family Medicine Residency program where he directs the curriculum and practices full-spectrum family medicine. He studied English as an undergraduate at Abilene Christian University and subsequently received his medical degree at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston. He chose to be a family physician because of the specialty’s emphasis on the scientific care of the whole human being. In addition to practicing and teaching in and out of the hospital, Dr. Griggs leads small groups of resident physicians in a reflective program that uses world literature and personal narrative to explore the meaning and values inherent in the practice of medicine.

In addition, he is an active researcher and is on a number of hospital and resident program committees. His biomedical interests include lipidology, epilepsy, kidney disease and pain management. Dr. Griggs joined the Baylor Medical Humanities program as a clinical adjunct faculty in 2012 with the hope of inspiring future healthcare professionals to become spiritually insightful providers and critical, well-rounded thinkers.
