Kevin O. Griffiths, MD, MPH, has been recognized as a 2023 Castle Connolly Top Doctor. Only about 7 percent of the nation’s licensed physicians are selected annually as Castle Connolly Top Doctors in their regions for their specialties.


Dr. Griffiths also has been named to Castle Connolly’s first-ever Top Black Doctors list.


Dr. Griffiths is a nephrologist, a physician who specializes in kidney disease, with Metro Renal Associates in Washington, DC and Capitol Heights, Maryland, where he evaluates and treats people with a range of kidney conditions.



They include hypertension (high blood pressure), kidney stones, kidney disease, kidney failure, nephrotic syndrome, polycystic kidney disease, and heart disease in renal failure. He cares for patients on dialysis treatment and those who are pre- and post-kidney transplantation.


A certified hypertension specialist, Dr. Griffiths also serves as the medical director of the Fresenius Kidney Care dialysis center in Southeast Washington, DC, overseeing the care and safety of more than 160 patients.


Steve Leibforth, Castle Connolly’s managing director, recently presented Dr. Griffiths with a commemorative plaque.
