Provider Spotlight 4 December 2018
Dr. Daiva Olipra
After serving Ivinson Memorial Hospital for four years as an on-call pediatric hospitalist, Dr. Daiva Olipra officially joined our healthcare team in May 2018. She provides care for patients in the Pediatric and Family Care Clinic at Ivinson Medical Group while continuing to work on-call in the Family Care Unit as a pediatric hospitalist.
Daiva has always had an interest in pediatrics, and she offers compassionate care for common and complex health issues for Ivinson’s littlest patients. To her, Exceptional Care means “taking very good care of our kids.”
As a pediatrician, Dr. Olipra provides individualized well-child visits and lifestyle, nutrition, exercise and stress assessment and management. Additionally, she is a European-trained Child Neurologist, specializing in ADD/ADHD, concussion, headache and other concerns of the mind and brain.
Originally from Lithuania, Dr. Olipra found her home in Laramie after searching for “a great job in a great place with great people.”
Daiva is currently completing an Integrative Medical Studies Fellowship from the University of Arizona and is expected to complete her studies early next year.
When practicing integrative medicine for her pediatric patients, Dr. Olipra partners with patients and parents in the healing process. She will discuss all aspects that influence the health of her patients in addition to addressing immediate issues and using conventional healing methods.
“The mind, spirit and even the community play their parts in helping the patient’s innate healing response. Really effective and long-term alternatives might include eating better or figuring out ways to reduce life’s stresses,” explains Daiva.
Daiva embodies the spirit of Ivinson, ensuring the health and well-being of all children she sees. Pediatric patients and their families are so lucky to have Dr. Olipra serving the Laramie community!
