Laura Diamond was born and raised in Florida. She first visited the state of Washington during medical school and was immediately drawn in by the natural beauty and Pacific Northwest culture. She received her medical degree from Florida State University College of Medicine and moved to Seattle, WA to complete her residency training at Swedish First Hill Family Medicine Residency.
After graduation she worked at an FQHC and Critical Access Hospital in Kodiak, AK. Her interests in broad scope practice and medical education then led her to Port Angeles, WA where she worked at a rural FQHC affiliated with the University of Washington and Swedish Cherry Hill Family Medicine Residency.
She was thrilled at the opportunity to return “home” to Swedish First Hill in 2018 and now serves as the clinic medical director. Laura values providing comprehensive care to individuals across their lifespan. Her interests include women’s health, mental health, addiction medicine, dermoscopy, practice management and health equity. Outside of medicine you will find Laura cooking, running, or exploring the outdoors with friends and family.
