Greg Iverson grew up in Salt Lake City and received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Exercise Physiology from the University of Utah. He attended medical school on a U.S. Army scholarship at the University of North Texas Health Science Center, Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine. He performed an internship and Family Medicine residency at Madigan Army Medical Center, Fort Lewis, Washington.
After finishing his residency, he and his family moved to Germany, where Greg served as the Brigade Surgeon for the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division. He deployed with this unit to Kuwait and Iraq for one year. Following his combat tour, the military assigned Dr. Iverson to command the U.S. Army Health Clinic, Livorno, Italy, where he and his family lived for two years. In September, 2009, Major Iverson completed his military service and joined the Coalville and Kamas Health Centers.
Dr. Iverson is married to Amy, who is a journalist in Salt Lake. They live in Oakley, and have three children.
Dr. Iverson is a D.O. (osteopathic physician), as compared to an M.D. (allopathic physician). These are equal medical degrees, though there are many fewer osteopathic schools and physicians. The educational and training requirements are nearly the same. However, Osteopathic medicine attempts to focus more on prevention and the “whole body approach” (holistic medicine). Dr. Iverson is also a board certified Family Physician.
