About Dr. Lamb


A Cum Laude graduate of Princeton University with a medical degree from the University of Virginia Medical School, Dr. Lamb trained at The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, St. Margaret for her internship and residency where she served as Chief Resident. The following year, she obtained a fellowship in Academic Family Medicine.  Her career began with the Washington Health System, spending ten years in academic medicine with the Family Medicine Residency Program where she developed expertise in women’s health and sports medicine. In 2007, Dr. Lamb started a new venture, The Urgent Care Center, where she served as medical director and honed her skills in all types of acute care management and concussion evaluation. In 2011, Dr. Lamb started and grew a highly successful family medicine practice, Lakeside Primary Care. During this time, she received advanced training in aesthetics and built a thriving aesthetic practice alongside her primary care practice. Recognizing the limitations of the traditional patient care model, she founded Lamb Medical in 2016 to provide exceptional, comprehensive, personalized care to her patients.

Dr. Lamb’s interests include women’s health, musculoskeletal care and sports medicine, dermatology and aesthetic medicine, patient education, and preventative/wellness care.

Outside of her career, Mary spends time outdoors with her husband and three sons where they enjoy activities such as waterskiing, swimming, running, boating, golfing, fishing, and all things hockey.
