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.

WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am originally from nearby rural Guilford county and now live in the Sandhills region of North Carolina. I was drawn to medicine from an early age. Being diagnosed with asthma, physicians became my occupational role model. I continually strive to emulate their kindness and sensitivity. After 16 years of practice, I am still fascinated with my chosen specialty. Whether it is ensuring a pain-free labor or hearing some say " Did I really just have surgery?", it never gets old. Today, I am fortunate to have been married for 20 years and have two young children. Being a parent is another full-time job but I still find time to fish, bike and enjoy live music. After a 20 year sojourn, I am glad to be back in North Carolina.
