Born and raised into a medical family with an anesthesiologist father and a NICU nurse mother, Dr. Lomibao observed firsthand how her mother struggled with a rheumatoid arthritis diagnosis and how a revamped diet and regular exercise routine improved her mother’s arthritis and quality of life. Dr. Lomibao lives by the same principles she expects of her patients, but this became even more apparent with the birth of her first child. The experience of pregnancy and nursing heightened Dr. Lomibao’s vigilance toward choosing non-drug modalities when able, eating whole food, mostly plant-based nutrition, consistent physical activity, avoiding toxins, and managing stress and sleep. To that end, Dr. Lomibao additionally finds personal inspiration and enjoys caring for patients who have similar objectives.
Dr. Lomibao was in private practice in the DFW area for four years prior to founding Lomibao Rheumatology & Wellness Care, PLLC and held an academically affiliated position teaching residents and medical students at Baylor University Medical Center. She has served as a Dallas area Local Chapter Leader for the Association of Women in Rheumatology since 2017 and has led and organized several charitable events in conjunction with the Arthritis Foundation.
A member of the American College of Rheumatology and the State of Texas Association of Rheumatologists, Dr. Lomibao was an invited speaker at the annual Arthritis Symposium at Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas in 2018. She has been awarded Compassionate Doctor Recognition (2017, 2018), On-Time Doctor Award (2018), Patients’ Choice Award (2017, 2018) by Vitals.com, the largest online database of patient reviews for doctors and facilities.
Dr. Lomibao takes pride in being intuitive, receptive, compassionate, and motivational in supporting each of her patients’ journey to optimal wellness and an active lifestyle.
