Procedures / Treatments

  • Cholesterol Management A treatment plan designed by a healthcare provider to lower a patient’s cholesterol level. A plan includes recommendations for improved lifestyle, diet, weight, and physical activity. Other risk factors are also assessed that can affect a patient’s cholesterol level. In some cases, cholesterol-lowering medications may also provide additional benefit to managing a healthy cholesterol level. Cholesterol management also involves decreasing the LDL cholesterol (“bad” cholesterol) and making sure HDL (“good” cholesterol) is at recommended levels. Patients and healthcare professionals work together to help improve and maintain heart health and reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease and stroke.
  • Chronic Fatigue

    Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a disorder characterized by extreme fatigue or exhaustion. This fatigue does not go away with sleep and cannot always be explained by an underlying medical condition, though chronic fatigue has been linked to and metabolic syndrome.

  • Diabetes Treatments related to diabetes and how the body handles blood sugar.
  • Diabetes Education Third party training and support for a patient's diabetes self-management and overall health.
  • High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) High blood pressure is another word for the condition. Blood pressure measures the force against artery walls as the heart pumps blood through the body.
  • Hormone Replacement Men and women both experience natural fluctuations in hormone levels throughout life, but as you age, those fluctuations become sharper and more severe. During andropause and menopause, hormone levels drop significantly. This can lead to a series of health consequences, including disturbed mental well-being, trouble sleeping, loss of energy, reduced sex drive, fatigue and more.
  • Insulin Resistance Insulin resistance is the name given when the body’s cells don’t respond properly to the hormone insulin. Insulin resistance is the driving factor leading to type 2 diabetes and prediabetes.
  • Medical Weight Loss A decrease in body weight/mass resulting from voluntary (diet, exercise) or involuntary (illness) circumstances. Medical weight loss is monitored by a specialist trained in Obesity Medicine.
  • Metabolic Syndrome

    Metabolic syndrome is not a disease in itself but a combination of risk factors that include:

    • High blood pressure
    • High blood sugar
    • Unhealthy cholesterol levels
    • Excess abdominal fat
  • Post-Bariatric Weight Management It’s not easy to maintain a healthy weight after bariatric surgery. Our weight loss experts help patients keep the weight off and establish healthy habits.
  • Weight Loss for Osteoarthritis Extra weight puts pressure on joints while extra body fat increases inflammation associated with osteoarthritis. A medical weight loss specialist can help patients control weight to their improve symptoms.

Interests

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.
