After growing up on the east coast, Greg Holland’s love of the mountains drew him and his wife to Utah where he’s lived for over a decade. Greg is passionate about helping patients live happy and healthy lives. He believes that healthcare should be a partnership between provider and patient. Nobody knows your body better than you, so he works together to tailor the best solution for you with a focus on quality of life. The best prescription is the one that you will follow; whether that be diet, exercise, medication, or some combination thereof.
One of Greg’s clinical interests is lifestyle medicine: Utilizing the power of diet and exercise to minimize the need for medications. Before becoming a physician assistant, he was a respiratory therapist at three different hospitals in Utah where he witnessed preventable suffering due to chronic disease on a daily basis. During this time, he became interested in obesity medicine as many of his patients suffered from weight related respiratory problems such as sleep apnea and obesity hypoventilation syndrome. Greg’s experiences at the hospital motivated him to become a physician assistant to help people take control of their health and avoid preventable illness and hospitalization.
He loves spending time in the mountains with his wife and dog in his free time, skiing, hiking and biking.
