Dr. Alan Story is a Catawba County native and joined Newton Family Physicians in 1999. Since then he has moved into a leadership role with his knowledge of computers and drive to help colleagues become more efficient in their day-to-day work flow. He has a special interest in disease prevention and well-care.

Dr. Story was nominated by his Practice Manager Melissa White. She shares, “He has a wonderful, positive attitude in trying to understand all types of providers and their needs in order to be the best they can be for their patients. In the last 5 years, he has taken his leadership role a few steps farther by becoming our lead physician in our quest for better quality. He was instrumental in helping us convert to telemedicine when the COVID pandemic struck. He is always thoughtful when trying to solve problems with our quality team and very aware of the impact that new guidelines throw our way. His leadership skills have propelled him to a local medical director for our state ACO. He is always willing to listen when our team has a workflow issue. He still manages to work a full patient load even as his practice has matured into a more challenging population with a greater Medicare share of patients. He consistently presents a positive attitude at any meeting as well as everyday work. I for one am proud to have him on our team. His heart truly is what a physician should be.”
