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

As a geriatrician, I enjoy spending time with my patients, their families, and their caregivers. I want to help address what medical problems are of concern, but I also want to learn what I can do to help improve each patient’s quality of life. Patients often say to me, “But I’m so old! What can you do for me?” or “Well, what do you expect? I’m supposed to be in pain. I’m old!” In my mind, there is no age that is too old to stop trying to make our next day better than the last. It’s this challenge that makes me love what I do!
