Duke Cancer Center Breast Clinic

Type:Duke University Hospital Outpatient Department
Hospital-based clinics are an extension of Duke Health hospitals and have additional facility charges. Some insurance companies process bills with a deductible and coinsurance rather than as a co-pay as for an office visit. This may impact the amount of the bill you are responsible for after payment from your insurance plan. Check with your insurance company before your visit to determine what your responsibility will be.

If you suspect or have been diagnosed with breast cancer, our breast cancer specialists can provide the comprehensive care you need. Our specialists have years of experience treating all types of breast cancer, including rare forms. Receiving your care from a team of experienced specialists ensures you receive the best possible outcome.
