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

As a health care provider, I partner with patients, families, and communities to help them identify and achieve their health-related goals. I believe that people are the experts on their own lives, and thus I try to listen to and guide patients rather than direct them. I enjoy practicing preventive medicine and taking a whole-person approach to health care. In my free time, I enjoy singing, playing tennis, throwing pottery, spending time with my significant other, and cuddling our pet rabbits.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research focuses on patient-physician communication, patient decision making, and healthy behavior choices. I received my PhD in consumer behavior, and I am interested in applying the principles of behavioral economics in a culturally-sensitive way to help people live healthier lives.
