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 improve 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 maintain your current health while also helping prevent 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 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. My MDVIP-affiliated practice, often compared to a concierge medicine practice, also offers conveniences like same- or next-day appointments. 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.

from Martha in KY March 21, 2023 for Gregory A. Hood MD MACP FRCP

My husband had a stroke and yet failed to even mention anything at all the entire day that this happened. He finally mentioned at dinner that he wasn't seeing right and I then asked what he meant, how did he see me standing in front of him? He then said he could see half of me and the other half was smoky, unclear. I said we need to go to the emergency room immediately. He refused. I then went… See more

from Julie in KY March 13, 2020 for Gregory A. Hood MD MACP FRCP

I was attending a women's retreat in March, 2019 and began feeling bad. Since joining MDVIP, I had Dr. Hood's cell phone #, so I texted him telling him how I felt. He told me a few things to do while away and made an appointment for me for that Friday after I returned home. On Friday, he sent me for a chest x-ray (stat) at the hospital. That night he called me telling me I had a… See more

from Juanita Cindy in KY March 12, 2020 for Gregory A. Hood MD MACP FRCP

Dr. Hood was my husband's doctor for eight years and made his life much happier and richer before he passed away. He also saved my life; I wouldn't be here without him. He is always thinking ahead and is so smart. I'm glad he decided to become a doctor instead of a sportsman. I'm very lucky to have him as my doctor.

from Shannon in KY March 12, 2020 for Gregory A. Hood MD MACP FRCP

Dr. Hood has been amazing when it comes to my health. He always takes the time to figure out what is going on with me and does whatever he can to get the issue resolved. Its nice to have somebody looking at my health over all instead of just the current problem. I appreciate you Dr. Hood and I appreciate that you truly care about me as your patient.
