Duke Geriatrics North Durham

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.

Duke geriatric medicine providers treat older adults with a range of problems that affect people age 65 and older, such as memory loss, balance concerns, mood changes, and increased frailty. We help you maintain function, comfort, and quality of life by providing compassionate care to you, your family, and your caregivers.

Geriatricians in Durham

Our team of geriatric medicine specialists have completed advanced training in geriatric medicine. We are experts in the effects of aging, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of age-related disorders. In addition to comprehensive physical examinations, our services include:

  • Optimizing your memory by diagnosing and managing memory-related problems
  • Helping you improve strength, balance, and mobility to avoid falls and fall-related injuries
  • Evaluating and treating mood changes including depression and anxiety
  • Performing a medication review to avoid adverse effects and ensure that each medication is serving a purpose
  • Helping you maintain independence and improve your day-to-day function
  • Discussing advance care planning and directives
  • Assisting you and your caregivers with choosing an appropriate level of care when care needs increase

Family members and caregivers are an integral part of your evaluation and are encouraged to attend appointments. We do not provide primary care, but we will communicate any recommendations and treatment plans to your primary care provider. We collaborate with them as part of your care.

Because we take a patient and family-centered approach to care, we also work with your loved ones and caregivers to help them understand and manage care needs and assist in care planning discussions with them.

Preparing For Your Visit

Download a PDF guide that includes information on what to expect during your visit.

Give yourself plenty of time to get to your appointment. Your doctor may ask you to arrive early so that you can have lab tests completed before your examination. Even if this is not the case, we suggest that you should allow about 45 minutes to get to your appointment in addition to your travel time to Durham. This will allow you sufficient time to park, locate the building, get to the particular clinic you're visiting, and register. Duke Clinic is approximately a quarter of a mile from the nearest parking deck. Please note that appointments may be subject to being rescheduled upon late arrivals.

Informal clothing and comfortable shoes are appropriate attire for your visit.
