He was active with the local high school sports teams and taught athlete injury prevention courses in the community.
During his residency and fellowship, Dr. Florence worked for team physicians of several professional and collegiate sports teams: New York Yankees, New York Jets, the Professional Golf Association, U.S. Olympic Ski and Snowboard teams, NBA referees and others.
Dr. Florence and his wife are both originally from Idaho. He grew up in Middleton and frequently skied and vacationed in McCall as a youth. They are looking forward to raising their children in McCall and being closer to their families in southwest Idaho.

Greg Irvine, MD retired from surgery and emergency care on April 1, 2022. He continues to see patients in the clinic and conducts orthopedic evaluations and consults.
Originally from northern Michigan, Dr. Irvine was part of the Inteflex Combined Pre-medical/Medical School Program's first class at the University of Michigan, where he also completed his general surgery residency. He joined the orthopedic surgery faculty as an assistant professor of surgery. He also served as the attending surgeon at Wayne County General Hospital and the co-director of sports medicine at University Hospital.
