Reena Patel attended Lincoln Memorial University- DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine in Harrogate, Tennessee. The physician assistant program involved a rigorous didactic year followed by 15 months of clinical rotations. While Reena was obtaining her Master’s Degree there, she was awarded the Alicia Jane Hicks Scholarship for her dedication to the PA profession, compassion for others, a selfless nature, and a desire to help the underserved.
Prior to attending PA school, Reena worked at Colonial Orthopedics in Richmond, Va where her passion for orthopedics began. After completing challenging rotations, such as the Orthopedic Trauma/Surgery rotation in Norwalk, CT, Reena decided to specialize in the field and join Dr. Gavin.
Although she is new to Loudon County and originally a native to Richmond, VA, Reena has not hesitated in reaching out into the community and taking care of the needs of patients locally. She has previously volunteered for Sports’ Physical Nights here in Loudon County to help support and strengthen our young athletes. She is excited to make Loudon County her new home and we are very excited to have her on board!
