“I am fascinated with how the human brain influences behavior and the role of neurochemistry in psychiatric disorders. I chose psychiatry because it provides a holistic understanding of the physical, mental, social and behavioral aspects of mental illness. I enjoy working with and learning from patients from diverse cultural backgrounds and my goal is to always provide culturally appropriate and respectful care” expressed Dr. Nuno.
