For More Information 855-855-6484

We’ve made it easy for you and your family to find great primary care doctors and urgent care clinics right in your neighborhood. Duke Primary Care clinics include family doctors, internal medicine doctors, pediatricians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners in more than 50 locations. We accept a growing list of Duke-friendly health plans. 

Virtual Visits and E-Visits
We 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. 

You can use E-visits to securely, privately, and conveniently communicate with your Duke providers. This enhanced online messaging system allows you to receive safe medical care through My Duke Health (previously Duke MyChart) without disrupting your day for an in-person or video visit. E-visits take place on a computer or mobile device at a time that is convenient to you. They do not require a camera or videoconferencing software.

Your Primary Care Options

You have several options when it comes to choosing a primary care doctor for you or your family. 

Family Medicine
Our family medicine clinics and doctors offer general well-care for children and adults, family planning, and care for chronic conditions. 

Internal Medicine
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.

General Pediatrics
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.

Urgent Care
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 visits are also available. 

Concierge Medical Care
Duke Signature Care offers 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 healthcare team by phone.
