About Me

Hello, and welcome to my Web page. My name is Dr. Diane Vanek, and I’m glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It’s very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.


I have been at Kaiser Permanente’s West Los Angeles Medical Center since 2008. My clinic is primarily at Culver Marina, but I do surgery at the West Los Angeles facility. I grew up in Palos Verdes and always knew that I wanted to practice podiatry in Los Angeles. I am married and have four beautiful young children. They keep me very busy outside of work! My hobbies include traveling, cooking, and spending time with my children.

About my practice

I work out of the Culver Marina offices most days of the week. When I am on call or doing surgery, I work at the West Los Angeles Hospital. I am board certified in foot surgery by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery (ABPS).

How I thrive

Having a healthy life/work balance is so important to me. I enjoy working out, and my favorite ways to stay in shape are spinning and taking Bar Method classes. I try to set good examples for my children by eating healthily and staying active. We spend a lot of time outdoors and love going to our local beaches!
