Duke Health contracts with most major health insurance carriers and transplant networks, including the ones listed below. Before scheduling your appointment, we strongly recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the Duke Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any co-payments, co–insurances, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with Duke, your out of pocket liability may be higher. We will contact you regarding your coverage and patient liability. If you are uninsured, learn more about our financial assistance policy.

Surgery and management of patients with cancer is very complex and challenging. I enjoy working at Duke because of the breadth and quality of people we have here. I really feel like I’m working with the best when I’m working with my colleagues. I went into obstetrics and gynecology, because I enjoyed working with women patients. Then as a resident, I found that oncology patients were among the most gratifying to take care of because they appreciate so much everything you try to do for them. In high school and college, I was very interested in science and mathematics, and the human body and physiology. In college, meeting different types of people, I realized that I wanted a profession that gave me the opportunity to interact with all different kinds of people. My wife and I moved here 25 years ago and have never regretted it. It’s a great area to live.
Clinical Focus and Research
I am actively involved in caring for women with gynecologic cancers on a daily basis, while also leading a nationally recognized program in translational research related to the causes of uterine and ovarian cancers. I am a leader of the North Carolina Ovarian Cancer Study that includes over 2,500 participants and seeks to identify genetic and behavioral factors that affect ovarian cancer risk. A better understanding of the causes of ovarian cancer could lead to more personalized approaches to early detection and prevention of ovarian cancer. I am also involved in clinical trials of new therapies that aim to improve survival of women with uterine and ovarian cancer.
