Diane Luciani, DO, FACOI
Board Certified Internal Medicine
Fellow of the American College of Osteopathic Internists
Dr. Diane Luciani was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She moved to Florida at the age of one and has always considered the seaside community of Satellite Beach to be her home. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Central Florida and then went on to complete her Doctor of Osteopathy at Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine. She completed both her internship and residency training in Internal Medicine at Olympia Fields Osteopathic Hospital and Medical Center in Olympia Fields, Illinois. Dr. Luciani is board-certified in Internal Medicine by the American Osteopathic Board of Internal Medicine and is a fellow of the American College of Osteopathic Internists.
Dr. Luciani has participated in medical student, internship, and residency training since the year 2000. She has been appointed Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor at Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, University of Florida, and Florida State University.
Although her initial training and practice style was primarily in the hospital setting, Dr. Luciani has flourished in the outpatient venue. Keeping her complex and chronically ill patients comfortable in their homes rather than in the hospital has been a primary goal of inpatient care. This extra time and attention she extends to those in need is the cornerstone of her practice.
In 2008, her dream of autonomy was realized with the creation of North Point Physicians, LLC. Her practice incorporates her philosophy of compassionate patient care with state of the art technology. Surrounding herself with a highly trained team of clinical and administrative assistants compliments her practice style, and her patients admire her commitment to giving each person the time and attention they desire.
