Who We Are

Santa Barbara’s Best Medical Staff


We are thrilled to offer you the services of our amazing medical staff team. As we say here at The G Spa, teamwork makes the dream work!

Kathleen Griffin, MD, Medical Director

Dr. Griffin is a board-certified, fellowship-trained,  OB-Gyn graduate of UCLA School of Medicine, who transitioned to the aesthetic field of medicine in 2007. Practicing for over 25 years has given her the expertise to provide a comprehensive, holistic approach to patient care. 

Dr. Griffin has found that improvement of one’s exterior can often be as important as addressing the concerns of traditional “internal” medicine. She believes that enhancing one’s beauty or good looks is more about maintaining one’s sense of self-worth and self-confidence than vanity.

Dr. Griffin’s passion for empowering women and offering them the best medical care naturally led her to specialized training in Medical Aesthetics, skin care technology and treatments. 

Her practice, The G Spa, in Santa Barbara, is an award-winning practice in the field of Medical Aesthetics. It is known for offering state-of-the-art treatments and equipment at affordable prices, as well as featuring no down-time, non-surgical modalities.

“One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is creating close relationships with people in my community and helping them not only look but feel their best.  There is nothing wrong with feeling a little more confident in how you look.”

“Experience tells you what to do; Confidence allows you to do it.” –Stan Smith
