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 take great pleasure in getting to know my patients and help them stay healthy. I find it a privilege to help people identify and treat health problems to optimize quality of life. I enjoy working with the many excellent specialists in our health care system. The patient's desired approach to his or her health care is our guide, using evidence-based diagnostic and treatment options and any ancillary or alternative approaches available. My life is full and rewarding. My triplets are 19 years old. They are at different colleges studying music, one classical and two jazz. My husband and I love music of all types, listening and playing. I play viola in the Duke Health Orchestra. We have many animals and are constantly inspired by their dedication, unconditional love and acceptance of the issues of old age. At 55, I am starting to deal with a few of them myself.
