Kathleen "Katie" Puening, DNP, ANP-BC

Primary Practice: Family Medicine (New Castle Location)

Nurse Practitioner Kathleen Puening enjoys learning “the whole story” about her patients to better understand the entire picture of their health. Her approach to care is based on the belief that each patient knows him or herself best. “There can be many paths to wellness and health, and finding the best fit for all involved is what leads to action,” she remarks. As a nurse practitioner, Puening also enjoys the autonomy of her position, which allows her and her patients to make important health decisions together.
