Meet Aloysius (Al) Abaya, FNP
UNC Family Medicine at Knightdale
It was the desire to take care of people and help them lead a healthy life that ultimately drove my decision to become a nurse practitioner. It stemmed from my experiences as a bedside nurse taking care of people in the hospital. The concept of working with each individual to achieve a better health is a very rewarding experience. My approach to patient care is one where I can deliver excellent, quality care in the safest means possible, for patients to achieve their maximum health potential. When not working, I love spending time with my wife, two sons and two lovable dogs. I also enjoy traveling, trying out foods from different cultures, spending time outdoors such as running, cycling, golfing and snorkeling.
