Welcome officially to the spring! With the cold weather finally giving way to warmer weather, you can start to see changes everywhere. At Duke Signature Care, we are very excited to announce several major changes and growth to our practice to continue to serve your needs and better serve patients.

We have added 2 new physicians to our practice.  Audrey Metz officially started with Signature Care in April. She received her medical degree at Vanderbilt University and completed her internal medical residency at Duke. She has practiced primary care in Durham since 2014. We are excited to have Dr. Metz join us.  Linda Harpole will be seeing patients through both of our Signature Care and Executive Health programs. She received her medical degree and completed her medical residency at Duke University in 1992. She earned an MPH at the Harvard School of Public Health. She was involved in patient care and clinical research at Duke before moving into the pharmaceutical industry as VP of Global Health Outcomes. We welcome Dr. Harpole back to Duke.

With the additional physicians and office staff, we are also very excited to announce an expansion of our practice to the Duke Health Center South Durham. This new facility will allow for more convenient care with multiple Duke specialty physicians and services. We will continue to see patients at our current office site and allow for choice in meeting your health care needs.  We look forward to introducing you to our new physicians and office site May 17th. We remain committed to continue to provide you with the care and personal service you need at Duke Signature Care.
