Diman R Lamichhane, MD
Diman R. Lamichhane, MD is our newest rheumatologist, and we welcomed him whole-heartedly as we feel he has so much to offer patients with his experience, his kindness, and his knowledge.
He was born in the beautiful and mountainous country of Nepal, home of the highest peak in the world Mount Everest. He practiced there until 2006, managing cardiac patients at the National Heart Center in the capitol city Kathmandu, and later managed a rural primary care clinic.
After moving to the United States, he completed a 3-year training program in Internal Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland.
Following the training, Dr. Lamichhane worked as a hospitalist in North Dakota for 4 years where he also mentored medical students.
He completed his 2-year fellowship in rheumatology in 2016 at the Washington DC MedStar Hospital Center where he was highly regarded by patients and faculty. Dr. Maier was eager to find the best and highly qualified rheumatologist to become his trusted partner, and he was honored to offer this position to Dr. Lamichhane, who moved to Eugene during the summer of 2016 to work with Dr. Maier.
Dr. Lamichhane and his family enjoy the outdoors and appreciate being close to the Cascade Mountains, the fresh markets, gardening in their new home, biking and exploring the West.
