Duke Health Provider What's this?
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.

Below are the plans currently accepted in 2018. There are some changes to the plans accepted beginning January 1, 2019. More information will become available on PlanForDuke.com.

WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am an infectious disease provider and see a wide variety of infectious diseases, including everything from HIV to Hepatitis C to bone and joint infections and everything in between. I want patients to feel comfortable to express their problems in their own words without receiving any judgment from me. I need as much information as I can to do my job correctly, so to me, accessibility is the center of the therapeutic dynamic between my patient and myself. Our division here at Duke runs the gamut of world experts in skin infections to complicated fungal infections to transplant infectious diseases. The thing that inspires me the most about working here is our commitment from all providers, regardless of their research involvement or academic activities, to patient care, and patient care first. I’m proud to be part of that tradition.
