We’ve made it easier for you and your family to find great primary and urgent care services right in your neighborhood. Duke Primary Care has more than 30 locations throughout the Triangle, and a growing list of Duke-friendly health plans. Our secure electronic medical record system, Duke MyChart, makes it easy to schedule appointments, view lab results, request prescription refills, communicate with your provider and pay bills.
If you need specialty care, our providers can direct you to specialists who are ranked among the nation’s best. As part of a nationally ranked medical center, they have access to the latest research, technology and medical advances, many of which are discovered at Duke Medicine.
If you need care after hours, our 5 urgent care locations are open 365 days a year, and are staffed by doctors and providers with extensive experience in emergency and primary care medicine.
There are several different types of primary care doctors. If you know what you want, find a convenient location nearest you. Or, discover the benefits of each type of provider and choose the one best suited to you and your family members’ needs.
Family medicine practitioners treat your entire family – from newborns to teens, parents to grandparents. In addition to preventive care counseling, physical exams, and management of common medical conditions, family medicine encompasses:
Pediatricians are specially trained to care for infants, children and teens. In addition to well baby and sick baby care, pediatricians evaluate general medical, developmental, and social health, as well as age-appropriate issues like immunizations. Annual exams may also include hearing and vision screenings.
While our pediatricians are trained to care for adolescents, your teen also has the option to be seen by adolescent medicine specialists with added training in the complex issues that arise in adolescence and young adulthood.
Internal medicine specialists are trained to diagnose and manage medical conditions that affect adults over the age of 18. Many of our internists also specialize in the health and well being of seniors and elderly people. Internists should not be confused with interns (a physician in training who has completed medical school).
Internists work with you to ensure you live a healthy life, and provide routine care related to women’s health, substance abuse and mental health. They are also equipped to diagnose serious medical conditions, and manage chronic diseases and conditions that may involve more than one medical problem.
Geriatricians receive additional training to help seniors and the elderly maintain good health and well being as they age. They are also equipped to handle the diseases and conditions associated with aging, many of which can be chronic and complex. Seniors who need care related to the physical, social, psychological and emotional issues associated with aging and living longer may also benefit from seeing a geriatrician.
For an annual fee, two programs at Duke offer greater access to physicians and other individualized services. You may make same or next day appointments at your convenience, and have 24-hour/7-day-a-week access to your physician on his/her personal cell phone and email.
