Dr. Gary Holland
In 1983, Dr. Gary Holland graduated Magna Cum Laude from Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia with a Bachelors Degree in Biology. He then attended the Medical College of Virginia graduating with his MD in 1987. Dr. Holland completed his residency in 1990 in Boise Idaho and was Board Certified in Family Medicine.
In 1998, Dr. Holland moved with his wife and three children to Pastaza, Ecuador where he became fluent in Spanish and volunteered his skills at a Christian mission hospital. Upon returning to the United States in 2002, Dr. Holland began specializing in hospice and palliative care. As the full time Medical Director of Comfort Worx Hospice he continues to render his incredible talent and bedside manner to its deserving patients, in both English and Spanish. In 2004, Dr. Holland earned his Board Certification in Hospice and Palliative Care, becoming one of a few Hospice Medical Directors to carry this higher designation. Dr. Holland also serves as the Medical Director for Home Medical Services, a companion practice to Comfort Worx Hospice that allows elderly patients who do not yet qualify for hospice services to still receive doctor visits wherever they live without having to travel to a specialty clinic.
