Biography

Philosophy Of Care

Dr. Gregor enjoys fixing a patient’s health problems, especially when that helps make a difference in their quality of life.

“It's a little bit like engineering. You can really solve problems. I try very hard to talk to and get to know my patients. I try to find some kind of a link to make the patients unique. It's a good reminder of who the patient is, and there’s an element of (building) trust.”

Thoughts On Owensboro Health & The Owensboro Community

Dr. Gregor said he chose Owensboro Health not just because of the professional opportunity, but also because of the feel of the community.

“It's a wonderful opportunity. There's a need, and I like to feel needed. The hospital is absolutely beautiful, and I can recognize that there's a patient population with people who are sick and need doctors,” Dr. Gregor said. “It has a feel to it like my old hometown in southern Ontario. When I came here to interview, I recognized it and that feeling has only been reinforced.”

Personal

Dr. Gregor’s wife is a critical care nurse and together they have four children, including a doctor of psychology, a doctor of physical therapy, a special education teacher and a business manager. In his spare time, Dr. Gregor enjoys keeping physically fit, painting and volunteering with Rotary International.
