Call your doctor before leaving home if you think you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms

Due to the presence of COVID-19 in our community, visitor restrictions are in place for all Duke clinics and hospitals. For your safety and the safety of others, we recommend patients do not bring a visitor to Duke clinics, if at all possible. If a visitor must accompany a patient, only one individual over 12 years of age is allowed. Patients and visitors will be screened for symptoms upon arrival. Individuals with flu-like symptoms are not allowed. View the complete list of Visitor Restrictions.

Effective immediately, Duke Health is prioritizing and rescheduling some non-emergent or non-critical surgeries, procedures, and appointments. Check our COVID-19 (Coronavirus) page for updates.

About Me

A strong desire to serve my country and others led me to join the military and become a physician. I separated from active service after serving eight years at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center caring for our nation’s heroes, family members, and retirees. Compassionate, honest, evidence-based care of the whole patient with a commitment to quality is my top priority. It is important to me that you understand your condition as well as the risks and benefits of all the non-surgical and surgical treatment options available to you. As a well-informed patient, we will make a decision together about what is right for you and your unique situation. My goal is to help you improve your symptoms without surgery whenever possible. If surgical intervention is needed, my focus is providing this as safely as possible via a multi-disciplinary approach to achieve your best results.
