The Duke Raleigh Hospital Pain Clinic offers point-of-service care for our patients. Patients report directly to the clinic where they are registered. The clinic’s front office staff handles insurance authorization.
Our goal is to consolidate processes for the patient in order to provide a user-friendly service. In addition to our outpatient clinic, the pain clinic physicians are available for inpatient consultations with a physician order.
Carolina Pain Consultants is a referral-based practice. Individuals who would like an appointment should ask their primary care physician for a referral.
The pain clinic is located in Medical Office Building 7, Suite 300. For more information, call 919-954-3776.
