Early in her career, Dr. Patwa actively worked as a pharmacist until deciding to return to medical school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After moving to Ohio for a residency in internal medicine and fellowship in gastroenterology and hepatology, she decided to return home to North Carolina.
As a physician, she sees herself as a strong advocate for her patients and believes in partnering with them to improve their overall health and well-being.
