Nimira Jina, MD


Nimira Jina, MD, is a UW Health geriatrician and a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. She provides primary care health services for adults aged 60 and older.

Dr. Jina diagnoses and treats a range of acute and age-related conditions, including memory and mobility issues. She offers chronic disease management for conditions such as hypertension (high blood pressure) and diabetes and provides preventive health care services such as age-appropriate screenings for cancer, vaccines and other recommended screenings.

Dr. Jina enjoys working closely with her patients to understand and achieve their health goals. For some patients, that might mean reducing or eliminating a medication, getting around their home more easily or becoming more mobile in general.

Because Dr. Jina knows that patients are more likely to have successful outcomes if they understand and agree with their treatment plans, she explains the “why” behind her recommendations and partners with them to personalize care.

Outside of work, Dr. Jina enjoys crocheting, cooking and traveling.

Partnering with patients is important because it’s their life they have to live it.
