Nasim Hemmatian truly enjoys being part of patients’ journeys — seeing them positively progress through increasing function while decreasing pain and getting back to the hobbies and daily activities they love.
After graduating in August 2018 from the University of Lynchburg with a Master of Physician Assistant Medicine degree, Nasim joined the National Spine and Pain Centers reporting to Dr. Matthew Holland and Dr. Amy Kipp. She also holds a bachelor’s degree in health sciences from Virginia Commonwealth University.
She previously worked as a quality management coordinator at Bon Secours Richmond Community Hospital, and a certified nurse aid at VCU Health System in the Neuroscience ICU.
Nasim was first drawn to the pain management speciality during her clinical rotations. The experience “showed me the magnitude of patients living with both acute and chronic pain and how using multiple modalities to control their pain can be very effective.”
The future of pain management is rapidly expanding with cutting edge procedures, and Nasim utilizes a multimodal approach to main management including a combination of interventional modalities and medication management.
When it comes to medication management as a part of treatment plans, Nasim believes “it is my duty to approach the medication needs for each patient from a holistic approach that involves the right treatment, at the right time, with optimal outcomes”.
Nasim aims to be transparent, thoughtful and integrate patients into every decision involving their medical care.
When not seeing patients, Nasim likes to garden. She also enjoys traveling, hiking and indoor cycling.
