Dr. Lao has always wanted to be a physician, and in fact she says she’s never really thought of anything else.
At Intermountain Healthcare, formerly HealthCare Partners Nevada, she serves as an internal medicine provider specializing in senior care. She enjoys being a “health coach” with her patients, whether by providing preventive care or managing chronic conditions, and she delights in seeing their positive results. She especially enjoys building a rapport with patients as she earns their loyalty and trust.
Dr. Lao is bilingual and can help patients in English or in Tagalog, her native Philippine tongue. In her free time, she relaxes and recharges by reading, traveling, and surprisingly, by line dancing. She especially enjoys spending time with her five grandchildren and extended family.
Dr. Lao received her undergraduate degree from San Carlos University and her MD from Cebu Institute of Medicine. She is board certified by the American Board of Medicine and has practiced medicine for over 35 years.
