Let me start by saying I absolutely LOVE what I do! As a family physician, my scope of practice encompasses the full spectrum of life from birth to the Golden years, including women's health, psychiatry, general internal medicine and procedures. My medical training as a DO was heavily based on the osteopathic principle of the holistic approach, taking into consideration the intricate connection between the mind, body and soul of a human being. I personally have a rather interactive approach to my medical decision making process with my patients and often times I ask them directly what they would like to do, not do, or what they think we should do. Together with my medical knowledge and experience in collaboration with your perspective, we will both take part in the responsibility of your health. I will always choose what I believe is good medicine in the best interest of my patients. Finally, I am a firm believer that there is always something to learn from each and every one of my patients no matter what their age, gender, walk of life, spiritual or political beliefs, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. I am very passionate about providing high quality patient care tailored to each individual. I am humbled and honored to assist you in your journey towards healing and well-being.
Born and raised in Paris, France, from a Berber-Kabyle father and an Irish-American mother, I spent the majority of my early life traveling back and forth between Europe and the States. I was mainly educated in the French system and ultimately attended college at La Sorbonne Nouvelle, Paris and University College Cork, Ireland where I studied literature and social sciences. Following graduation I worked as an English teacher for 3 years in Paris. However, deep down inside my true calling had always been medicine and so in 2003, I flew back to the US on a one-way ticket, with a back pack, one thousand dollars and a dream of becoming a physician. My medical journey began at the University of Pennsylvania where I completed my Post-Baccalaureat Premedical program. During that time I discovered osteopathy and decided to attend the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. From there, I completed my residency in Family Medicine at Largo Medical Center, Florida.
I strive to achieve balance in my life through exercise, meditation, and creativity (art work, dance, music, interior design). I am an adventurer at heart, I love discovering new places and people. As of most recently, I am also an aspiring beachaholic! Spending precious family time with my 2 small boys and my amazing family and friends in the US, Europe, Algeria is a top priority in my life. I also have interests in life coaching, aesthetic procedures, and medical mission work both abroad and within our own communities .

Claire Diamant-Yefet, owner and nurse practitioner at Health Now, went to college at the University of Colorado where she received a BA in psychology with the plan of pursuing her masters in counseling but then decided she wanted to be able to treat the whole body and went on to get her Bachelor's Degree in Nursing at Denver College of Nursing. She started her career as a nurse after moving to Florida for 2 years to be closer to the ocean which she loves! In Florida, she was a pediatric oncology nurse. Her love for kids took her into this realm of nursing. It was definitely a challenge but it was so fulfilling for her to be able to help children and their families as they were fighting for a cure. Claire then went on to become a travel RN and moved to New York to explore the big apple! While in NYC, Claire worked on the general pediatric unit at Weill Cornell Hospital with school aged children as well as babies. Her next contract took her to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, back to her original stomping ground and where she loved to be. “Patients with cancer have a major obstacle and tremendously hard life change put in front of them, they learn to truly appreciate life and you can personally feel that from their energy, its very sad and hard but truly a special field to have grown in. “I have stayed in touch with many of my patients to this day and I see them when I go back to visit with my husband and 18 month old daughter, my husband is from New York!” While working as a nurse for 5 years, Claire received her masters of science degree at Simmons College in Boston where she became a family nurse practitioner, again wanting to be able to treat ailments from head to toe. She returned to Colorado 2.5 years ago to be close to her family again as family is number one in her life, this includes her 6 year old, fluffy Pomeranian, Romeo. She started her career as an FNP at DTC Family Health and after 2 years, was given an amazing opportunity by her family , to fulfill her lifelong dream of owning her own practice as well as practicing as a NP in her own clinic and providing urgent care.

My background includes over 33 years in nursing, with a comprehensive knowledge base in a variety of fields of medicine.

Patients who would unexpectedly tangle with bison, white water rafting accidents, snow-machines or other recreational mishaps while vacationing. Immediately after graduating from University of Northern Colorado, Greeley in 2002, I started serving West Yellowstone, and then in 2011 moved to Eaton, Colorado to serve the farmers and oil men in northern Colorado.
