About Laura Balda, MD

Dr. Laura Balda believes that a great physician collaborates with the patient – as an individual – to understand underlying issues and to treat the whole person rather than a symptom. To fulfill this standard, she partners with patients to guide them on the road to wellness. 

"Waking up in the morning and feeling well and energetic is a daily gift. What we put into our bodies and the amount of time that we spend allowing our bodies to perform challenging physical acts has an immeasurable impact on our health. Physicians and patients must work together to understand what might be standing in the way of achieving optimum health." 

Dr. Balda acknowledges that building relationships with patients takes time, education and trust. "It is an absolute honor to bond with my patients," she says. "One of the benefits of Inova VIP 360° is the ability to give patients the time and attention they deserve. I look forward to building lasting relationships with my patients." 

Dr. Balda is a dedicated mother of three and an avid long distance runner with a passion for providing outstanding, compassionate care to her patients. She has a strong interest in women's health, especially for the busy female executive and multi-tasking mother. She is a graduate of the University of Florida, College of Medicine, and is board certified and a diplomate of the American Board of Family Medicine.
