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.

Profile
ABOUT ME

I believe in patient-centered care. I am a general internist with a subspecialty in endocrinology. My areas of interest include general internal medicine with special interest in diabetes, PCOS, and thyroid issues. I transitioned into medicine through social policy, and I like to practice a patient-centered approach. I like to know what my patient's life looks like and focus on interventions that will work best for patients. I enjoy teaching students, patients, and I love to learn.
