Duke Health Provider What's this?
Insurance

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 was born and raised in New York, graduating from Duke University in 1989 and then the Yale University School of Medicine in 1993, where I served as class president and was named a Farr Scholar for "superior performance… leadership, integrity and intellectual honesty in pursuit of medical knowledge at Yale.” Following residency and fellowship training in the Harvard system, I joined the gastroenterology faculty at Duke University Medical Center in 1999 and was honored in 2003 with the Paul G. Killenberg Fellow Teaching Award in Gastroenterology. I have authored numerous journal articles and book chapters in the fields of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, and was named one of “America’s Top Physicians” by the Consumers’ Research Council of America. I am an active member of the American Gastroenterology Association and the American College of Gastroenterology. I am married to Dr. Susan Spratt and am blessed with three wonderful children.
