We also offer virtual visits with a primary care provider. They take place on a computer or mobile device with a camera using secure videoconferencing software that protects your privacy.
Your Primary Care Options
You have several options when it comes to choosing a primary care doctor for you or your family. All our primary care clinics are conveniently located throughout the Triangle.
Our family medicine clinics and doctors offer general well-care for children and adults, family planning, and care for chronic conditions.
Internal medicine doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants diagnose and manage medical conditions that affect adults ages 18 and older. Many of our internists also specialize in the health and well-being of seniors and elderly people. Our internal medicine doctors help you manage your health.
Pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners provide well-baby and sick-baby care; general medical, developmental, and social health care; and age-appropriate care such as immunizations.
Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine
While our pediatricians are trained to treat adolescents, your teen also has the option to be seen by adolescent medicine specialists trained in the complex issues that arise in adolescence and young adulthood.
Duke Urgent Care clinics offer extended hours and limited on-site laboratory and imaging services. We diagnose, treat, and manage urgent medical conditions and minor trauma when your primary care provider is unavailable. We are open 365 days a year. Virtual urgent care visits are also available.
Concierge Medical Care
Duke Integrative Primary Care and Duke Signature Care offer greater access to primary care doctors and other individualized services for an annual fee. You may make same- or next-day appointments at your convenience and have 24-hour/7-day-a-week access to your health care team by phone.
Top-Rated Care, Reviewed by Patients
We want you to have confidence in your health care decisions. That starts with giving you the information you need before your visit. When choosing your primary care doctor, you'll find profiles that include ratings of up to five stars and feedback directly from patients. Every rating is based on patient responses to their experience at Duke and is validated by an independent patient satisfaction organization.
