N.C., AdventHealth Welcomes New Doctor to Expand Access

to Primary Care in Buncombe County

Nov 10, 2022; HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. – AdventHealth is excited to welcome Carla Renaldo, DO, MBA to its team of primary care providers at AdventHealth Medical Group Multispecialty at South Asheville. Dr. Renaldo is board-certified in Internal Medicine and focuses on preventive health with an emphasis on healthy lifestyle.

Dr. Renaldo earned her bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience from Cedar Crest College in Allentown, PA and her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Philadelphia, PA. She went on to complete her Internal Medicine Residency Program from Oklahoma State University/Freeman Health System in Joplin, MO.

Dr. Renaldo has a passion for serving complex patients as well as, geriatric and underprivileged patients. She has a strong commitment to patient education and is excited to work together with her patients in their health care needs. Dr. Renaldo adds, “Aside from actively listening to a patient’s chief complaint or concerns, I like to get the patient’s perspective on what they think is going on. This approach allows the patients to take a more active role in their health care and also strengthens the doctor-patient relationship by cultivating mutual respect and trust.”

As an Osteopathic Physician, Dr. Renaldo values a wholistic approach to health care. AdventHealth’s promise of whole-person care – mind, body, and spirit, is something that drew her to this position. “I said yes to AdventHealth primarily because of its high ethical standards and its commitment to whole-person care,” Dr. Renaldo shares, “I was also interested in joining a faith-based organization with a strong commitment to serving the community.”

“Dr. Renaldo sees each person in her care as a whole-person and is committed to helping them feel whole by partnering with them to meet their health needs and goals,”

shared Christy Sneller, MBA, Vice-President of Physician Services and Chief Practice Officer for AdventHealth Hendersonville. “We are excited to welcome Dr. Renaldo and be able to offer one more exceptional choice for primary health care to people who live and work in Buncombe County.”

Dr. Renaldo recently moved to the area from Tampa, FL. She is looking forward to hiking, meeting her new neighbors, and new adventures traveling.
