My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My natural passion for life has always driven me to provide detailed, comprehensive, personal health care to each of my patients. Being able to provide personalized medical care is something I thoroughly enjoy. Affiliating with MDVIP has helped me to preserve and robustly enhance the opportunities to plan proactively with you. I promise to use my education, experience, compassion and understanding to build a close and constructive relationship with you. Partnering together, I believe that we can optimize your current health while also preventing new problems. My goal is to help you meet your personal goals for your life and your health at every stage of life.
Located in Lexington, Kentucky and affiliated with Baptist Hospital, I’m honored to serve patients who come to see me from across the Commonwealth, as well as from many other states. My staff and I are accustomed to working with “snowbirds”, who winter in warmer climates. My personalized, internal medicine practice, which, in some ways, is similar to a concierge practice, allows me to get to know each of my patients and to care for them well beyond their immediate needs. Because of this, when necessary, I am able to coordinate patient care with preferred physician colleagues, whether it be across town or across the country. In my internal medicine practice, I address the full depth and breadth of adult health, wellness and illness, with particular interest in prevention and wellness as well as cardiovascular health, hypertension, cholesterol disorders, nutrition, orthopedic and musculoskeletal problems.

I had been generally very healthy until about a year ago when I suddenly was struck with severe dizziness of unknown origin. While we are still working to determine the cause and (hopefully) successful treatment of this issue, Dr Hood has been the most thorough, helpful, advocate I could ask for. His knowledge and willingness to take time to work with me has been invaluable. He has been the… See more

from Katherine May 3, 2018 for Gregory A. Hood MD MACP FRCP

I had been dealing with a nerve issue for ten years, with visits to 3 neurologists, 2 neurosurgeons, and Cleveland Clinic with minor relief. When Dr. Hood became my doctor he referred me to a physical therapist who worked with me for six week and gives me a new quality of life that I was told was not possible. Dr. Hood made my life so much better, and I trust him with my health needs.
