HEENA PATEL, FNP-C

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

In her free time she enjoys spending time with her family, especially her niece and nephew. She became interested in hiking some time ago and has enjoyed doing so through the summers. She also enjoys bowling and watching movies.
