Choose Duke for Your Family's Care

General Well Care for Children and Adults
Family medicine providers want to establish a long-term relationship with you and your family, centered around keeping you healthy and preventing illness. The care they provide includes preventive care counseling, physical exams, and management of common medical conditions. It also includes children's health care and well-child visits for services such as developmental screenings, immunizations, and parental guidance to help meet growth milestones.

Family Planning
Family doctors also offer family planning and regular gynecological screenings such as breast exams and Pap smears.

Care for Chronic Conditions
Our family practice doctors help you manage chronic diseases and conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, mental health disorders, and other long-term conditions.
