Duke Signature Care makes my doctor so accessible. Knowing we have a phone number to call our doctors anytime we want, and that they’ll call us right back, is a big reassurance.

What makes Duke Signature Care a Concierge Medical Practice?

duke concierge care medicineThe personal medical care you can experience through Duke Signature Care is the result of our commitment to a low doctor-to-patient ratio. By limiting the number of patients each concierge primary care physician treats, a host of benefits are made possible.

You may be able to arrange an immediate or next-day appointment with your concierge doctor. Regardless of when your appointment is, it will start on time, meaning there’s less waiting for you. During your appointment, you’ll enjoy more one-on-one time with your doctor. Both of you will be able to talk at leisure about any health concerns you have. And should you have questions after hours or while you’re traveling, you can always reach your doctor by calling Duke Signature Care’s main phone number.
