There are some changes coming to DEC and we wanted to make sure to share all this information with you!

Starting on July 6th, Kristin Ferree, FNP will be switching her schedule over to part-time. She will be with us on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays but she will be in our new additional location in East Coast Square North at 4252 Arendell, Suite G on some of those days. If your appointment has been moved to that new location we will notify you ahead of time!  Dr. Lucas will still be at our main office.

In order to still accommodate all of our patients we are excited to announce we have decided to bring on a new Nurse Practitioner!

Casey Carter, FNP will be joining us; she graduated from Duke in 2012 and has been working in primary care for the past few years. Casey is wonderful and we are so thrilled that we have the opportunity to work with her! She will be with us Monday - Thursday every week at our main office. Some of our patients who were originally scheduled to see Kristin will be seeing Casey starting July 6th. If you see Casey around the office, introduce yourself!
