Spotlight: Jazmine Nesvik, DO
We’re welcoming Dr. Nesvik back to her hometown as she joins the Dermatology team in 2023.
Dr. Nesvik attributes all of the time she spent at the Alexandria Clinic as a child as one reason she pursued a career in healthcare.
My mom was a receptionist at the clinic. I remember hanging out there on the days we didn't have daycare. I got to know several of the doctors there. They were idols to me—people I really looked up to. I admired how they impacted people's lives in positive ways.

Beginning her education at St. Thomas, Dr. Nesvik took a unique path to her doctorate by attending Lincoln Memorial University in Tennessee. “My residency at Northeast Regional Medical Center in Kirksville, Missouri is a rural setting much like Alexandria. They are really focused on providing care close to home so people don’t have to drive great distances.”
With her intense surgical training, Dr. Nesvik will compliment Dr. Harvey with skills including Mohs Surgery and the ability to treat challenging areas like the face, hands, and lower legs.
I hope that with my addition to the Dermatology team, people will start experiencing decreased wait times. In addition, I love championing new treatments and technologies, like Alomere's new photodynamic therapy, which effectively treats precancerous areas on the skin.

Wrapping up er last year of residency away from home, it’s a busy time for the doctor. On top of her education, she and her husband are house hunting in Alexandria and raising their young daughter—both can be challenging.
And yet she won’t be slowing down anytime soon. Passionate about the outdoors, Dr. Nesvik is looking forward to living the lake lifestyle she enjoyed as a child. And this dermatologist isn’t afraid of the sun, you’ll bump into her paddle boarding, running, and biking. “It’s all about picking the right time of day when the sun isn’t so direct, seeking shade, wearing the right clothing, and reapplying sunscreen every two hours.”
“Skin conditions can profoundly impact a person’s life, and I’m looking forward to alleviating some of their burden within our community,” says, Dr. Nesvik.
