Duke Speech Pathology and Audiology Clinic - Clinic 1I

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 Speech Pathology and Audiology Clinic 1I provides individualized speech, language, hearing, cognitive, swallowing, and communication services to adults and children. Our providers are equipped with the specialized training and expertise necessary to provide care that is tailored to each person’s individual needs.

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.
