Dr. Laura Stone has been a practicing physician for over 25 years. She received her medical degree from the University of Rochester in Rochester, New York where she was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha, the honor Medical Society. She completed her internship and residency at Magee-Women’s Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and was board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology in 1992. Her first appointment was Staff Physician and Clinical Instructor at the Virginia Mason Clinic in Seattle, Washington. Dr. Stone moved to the DC area and was a member of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Inova Alexandria Hospital from 1994 – 2012. Her private practice focused on gynecology and women’s health.
When issues with her personal health and the health of her family were not being solved through a traditional western medical approach, she began to explore functional and integrative medicine. She was Board certified by the American Academy of Anti Aging Medicine in 2010 and then worked at the Virginia Center for Health and Wellness with Andrew Heyman MD from 2012 to 2019. Initially, her practice focused on healthy lifestyle and hormone management, but then it became clear that Integrative treatment of mold illness and vector borne infections was required to help her complex patients heal. In 2018, Dr. Stone became Board Certified in Integrative Medicine and was appointed a member of the International Lyme and Infectious Disease Society Board of Directors (ILADS). She is delighted to be working at the Amen Clinic to work on how infections, mold illness, and lifestyle affect mental health.
In her spare time, Dr. Stone enjoys Zumba, traveling, and spending time with her husband and two sons and their partners. She is a proud volunteer at the Arlington Free Clinic.
