Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I’m Dr. Lauria, one of the doctors on staff in the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department at Kaiser Permanente Lancaster Medical Offices. As part of a dedicated team, I feel privileged to provide care to women of all ages.
Born in Camden, New Jersey, I grew up in the San Fernando Valley, and aside from my years away at school and establishing my practice, I have spent most of my life in Southern California. I received my undergraduate education at UC Berkeley and went to medical school at a place once known as “Cal’s Southern Campus”: UCLA. I headed to Texas to complete my residency at Texas Tech and for a few years was in private practice in San Antonio. Before long, California called me back, and in 1997 I joined Kaiser Permanente. I am pleased and honored to participate with such a talented team of health care professionals.
As an Ob/Gyn, I take the time to listen to my members and identify their needs. I believe that compassion and understanding are the foundation of a successful doctor-patient relationship. Caring for expectant mothers and ensuring the smooth delivery of their children is one of the most fulfilling aspects of my career. I enjoy treating younger members and helping them get oriented towards proper care of their bodies, yet I have strong empathy for older, post-menopausal women, as I share in many of their struggles.
I am a strong believer in regular exercise and well-balanced meals; these two factors are key to a long and satisfying life. My daily exercise comes from walking an enormous but loving German Shepherd, and good meals are inspired by my vast collection of cookbooks. At least once a year I pack my bags and head for a new destination, often with a group of friends. We’ve explored many cities in Europe, Mexico, and the United States. Learning about the history and heritage of these varied cultures is fascinating. I relish my trips both domestic and abroad.
