Dr. Nuismer is also a Primary Care Mental Health Integration Psychiatrist at Veterans Affairs Health Care System. Her professional philosophy is that Medicine is both an art and a science. It is our duty to learn as much as we can, practice evidence-based interventions and challenge ourselves to think critically and deeply about our patient’s suffering. The art is in meeting our patients where they are, striving to understand their distress and engage them as a partner on their journey towards healing.
