I moved to this area 1 year ago. I was trying to schedule a anual check up last year. I tried Duke Medicine and several other places. None of them is taking new patient. I am doing the same thing this year-- try to have may annual check up done. I called 5 facilities, including Duke medicine. I still got answers like: "we are not taking any new patient", or "we may open up in fall but not sure", or "all our doctors have been booked up". Why is it so difficult? I am looking for some good doctor in Southpoint area or west cary area (cary park area). Could anyone recommend a good female doctor?

Thanks a lot!

Well, I know Schmidt and Catchings IS taking new patients, but for routine things like physicals for new patients, they will put you behind existing patients for appointments. It's usually several weeks. I've pretty much experienced this with just about every new doctor I've tried out.

We just booked a physical with our family doctor. She gives a lot of time to each exam and the next slot we got was Oct 14.

I agree, I called the 1-888-ASK-DUKE number and got an appointment right away... so did my husband.
