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.

WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I spend most of my time at Duke Health helping individuals who struggle with weight control and associated diseases. I believe there is no single approach that fits all; I present different options based on personal preference, weight loss goals, occupation and fitness level. When meeting with patients, I practice active listening and reflection with the goal of enhancing motivation. I am interested in diabetes prevention and treatment with a combination of diet, exercise and medications, when needed. I am passionate about food, its culture and the food habits worth preserving and reviving. I am from Italy and moved to the United States in 1989 after living in the Dominican Republic for three years.
