Heena Patel, FNP

I was born in England and moved to the United States as a young child. I eventually made it to Catawba County as a young teen and graduated from Newton-Conover High School in 2006. Thereafter I completed my undergraduate degree at UNC Charlotte in 2010 and graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I moved back to the area and began my nursing career at Catawba Valley Medical Center as a telemetry nurse. I worked there for a year and then moved on to work in critical care for an additional 4 years. I went on to pursue my Masters and earned a Family Nurse Practitioner degree at Duke University. Shortly after graduating, I moved back to the area once again to join the Newton Family Physician team. My professional interests include diabetes and hypertension management.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family especially my niece and nephew. I recently became interested in hiking and have enjoyed doing so throughout the summer. I also enjoy bowling and watching movies.
