Nima Adimi, MD
"I believe in treating the patient, not the disease. I believe that in order to live a healthy life, one must also have a healthy mind and body."
Dr. Nima Adimi, originally from the Washington, D.C., area, pursued his undergraduate education at the University of Virginia, where he majored in biopsychology and minored in chemistry and physics. He then returned to Washington, D.C., where he entered Georgetown University for a master's degree in physiology-complementary and alternative medicine. His training there strengthened his interest in utilizing all available modalities - even alternative ones - to treat the whole patient. Dr. Adimi completed his medical education and anesthesiology residency at George Washington University and his pain medicine fellowship at Harvard's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
Dr. Adimi spends most of his time in the company of his wife and twin boys. He enjoys playing and watching almost all sports.
In 2015, Dr. Adimi was awarded the Arnold P. Gold Foundation Gold Humanism and Excellence in Medicine Award, which is given to a resident/staff physician who exemplifies the qualities of patient-centered medicine: compassion, caring, personal ethics, empathy and service.
