About Me

Vanessa Sundeen, FNP specializes in infectious disease and travel medicine at Altru Family Medicine Center. She strives to make a difference in every patient she encounters, and she tries to alleviate the stress that can come with healthcare visits. In her free time, she likes to spend time with family and friends, including her husband and children. They enjoy attending UND sporting events, spending time outdoors, and traveling.

Philosophy of Medicine

"There is more to a patient than just the disease, much like there is more to an iceberg than the tip we can see above water. When practicing nursing and medicine, I take a holistic approach that encompasses multiple factors in a person's life, such as social, economic, and cultural factors."
