Abdirizak Nuno, MD

Psychiatry, Medication Management

Psychiatry has been the choice of my field after graduating medical school and obtaining my M.D.

I did my internship in 2014-2015 at one of the largest medical centers in Minnesota at Hennepin county medical center and Regions hospital.

I worked inpatient, outpatient, chemical dependency, Emergency room etc. I completed my residency training in 2018 and Joined HealthPartners as an outpatient psychiatrist.

It is this Background of training, knowledge and skills that I decided to start Shifa Metro Clinic to give something back to the community. 

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.

My interests are varied and include a wide spectrum of disorders, such as major depression, anxiety, bipolar, schizophrenia, substance use, ADHD and PTSD. I explore the biological, psychological and social components of mental illness and utilize tools and interventions to evaluate and treat my patients, including diagnostic laboratory tests, prescribed medications and coping strategies.  In addition to medication management, I provide my patients with psychoeducation and supportive care.  While I like to collaborate with families and encourage them to actively engage in their loved one’s treatment, my approach is also patient-centered care and I provide my patients the autonomy to make informed decisions.

I live in the fun-filled city of Burnsville, Minnesota, with my family. In my free time, I enjoy being with my family and friends, playing soccer and basketball, reading and traveling. I am a member of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) and the American Medical Association (AMA).
