Below are some of the services and specialties that are available at the Duke Family Medicine Center.
Duke Family Medicine Center offers CenteringPregnancy® prenatal care for expectant mothers. The model of care replaces routine individual visits with group visits of eight to twelve pregnant women who are due about the same time.
In a two-hour visit, moms have a one-on-one assessment with the provider and plenty of time for group sharing and discussions. Patients participate in their own care and have time with their provider to discuss important information.
Patients receive all the components of prenatal care, including health assessment, education, and support. In the group sessions, there is a facilitated discussion of pregnancy, birth and newborn care as well as overall health, stress management, and more.
Duke Family Medicine Center clinicians provide comprehensive care to older adults, including home visits, management of complicated medication regimens, and care of one or multiple chronic diseases. Our provider staff includes two physicians who have fellowship training and certificate of added qualifications (CAQ) in geriatrics, one of which also has an added qualification in palliative medicine.
Our residents, along with several providers, conduct home visits as needed to help patients who are unable to leave their homes. We work closely with the Just for Us program for homebound seniors, as well, to ensure patients get the care that they need when they need it. We have a team that includes outstanding nurses, a pharmacist who assists with medication management, and a social worker well-versed in community resources for seniors.
As Duke Family Medicine Center grows and expands its services, the clinic hopes to offer more tailored health care services to its LGBTQ+ patients to meet their medical needs, all with a focus on cultural competency.

Our clinic provides professional medication therapy management by a licensed clinical pharmacist practitioner. Our pharmacist, C.

He also provides outstanding full-service diabetes education and is a certified diabetes educator and advanced diabetes manager for our clinic.
