Duke Health contracts with most major health insurance carriers and transplant networks, including the ones listed below. Before scheduling your appointment, we strongly recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the Duke Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any co-payments, co–insurances, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with Duke, your out of pocket liability may be higher. We will contact you regarding your coverage and patient liability. If you are uninsured, learn more about our financial assistance policy.

Below are the plans currently accepted in 2018. There are some changes to the plans accepted beginning January 1, 2019. More information will become available on PlanForDuke.com.

WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I specialize in heritable arrhythmias that affect children and young adults such as long QT syndrome, Brugada syndrome, catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia syndrome, and congenital JET syndrome. I also specialize in sudden cardiac arrest with a passion for identifying the cause of sudden unexplained death in children and young adults with a goal of identifying at-risk family members. I am a physician-scientist and cross-trained in pediatric cardiology, electrophysiology, human genetics, and molecular physiology. I lead an active research program that brings together clinical medicine, functional genomics, precision medicine, and molecular and cellular biology.

MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I lead a laboratory-based research program dedicated to identifying the genetic and cellular causes of sudden cardiac death-predisposing diseases in children and young adults. Diseases that we study include long QT syndrome, short QT syndrome, Brugada syndrome, catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia, sudden infant death syndrome, sudden unexplained death syndrome, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy. I specialize in cardiovascular genetics and identifying “at risk" family members as many of these diseases can be passed in the family. My research often uses patients and their families to identify genetic markers in individuals where the gene tests are negative. We also use stem cells derived directly from patients as models for exploring how these diseases develop. Our overall goal is to know enough about the genetics and molecular defects so that we can identify “at risk” family members who may not show any signs of disease during the testing period and find new therapies to treat these diseases.
