January 31, 2018

Conemaugh Physician Group – Behavioral Medicine welcomes board-certified psychiatrist Nishma Saini, MD to its practice. Dr. Saini will be the attending physician for inpatient adult psychiatric care at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center.

Dr. Saini earned her medical degree at Government Medical College in Amritsar, India. She completed a psychiatry residency at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, followed by a last year of psychiatry residency at Albany Medical Center in New York. Dr. Saini’s special interests include psychotic disorders and bipolar disorder.

“Our minds are incredibly complex, as are our social and cultural interactions,” explains Dr. Saini. “We live in an exciting era of neuroscience and groundbreaking research. I enjoy the complex and growing aspect of this specialty.”

Dr. Saini explains that treatment for behavioral issues is a slow healing process that requires a lifelong commitment from the patient and physician. “Every person is unique and no two people have the same story,” she says.

Dr. Saini and her husband, also a Conemaugh physician, find Johnstown to be the perfect location for spending time together enjoying outdoor activities. She also enjoys road trips with her family, reading, and is expanding her cooking abilities.
