Personalized care from an experienced team.

Since its beginning, The Forest at Duke clinic has been associated with the Duke University Division of Geriatric Medicine. The clinic has two board-certified geriatric medicine specialists and a nurse practitioner. It also provides 24/7 availability of physicians for after-hours concerns.

From routine visits to lab work, Forest residents can take advantage of the medical services provided by our Duke geriatrician and staff nurses. The clinic also offers access to dental and pharmacy services.
