Family Medicine Residents

Laura Vives, M.D.

Hometown: Valparaiso, IN born and raised
Medical School: Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara Facultad de Medicina Guadalajara (Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico)
Favorite Thing: Coffee addicted
Favorite TV: Reality TV, especially all the Real Housewives of… Series
Favorite Quote: My grandfather would often share with me a quote he loved – “Like the pianist that soothes the heart and delights the mind with his or her tender melodies, the physician with his or her knowledge and scientist hearts the heart and comforts the mind and soul.”

As a Valparaiso native, I couldn’t have been more excited to learn Northwest Health was launching a residency program, welcoming its first class in 2023. I believe this program will emphasize positive change and improve healthcare delivery and outreach within our community, and I am honored to be a member of its inaugural class. It is my goal to create a compassionate atmosphere where patients of all ages, genders, ethnicities or cultural backgrounds feel comfortable discussing their physical and emotional needs and concerns. By integrating my experiences across family medicine including geriatrics, general medicine, pediatrics, psychiatry and obstetrics-gynecology, I am able to serve my future patients who have needs in all areas of medicine. For these reasons, I chose this family medicine residency program at Northwest Health.
