Meet the new "Dr. Pal"

Most children dream about what they will become when they grow up.
Dr. Swapna Paladugu, known by many of her patients and staff as “Dr. Pal,” is one of the fortunate children living their childhood dream.
“I loved medicine when I was a child,” Dr. Paladugu said. “I always wanted to be a doctor. I have no regrets and I am so happy in what I'm doing.”
Dr. Paladugu joined Family Nurse Practitioner Julie Bowers at Catawba Family Medicine in Richburg.
