General & Community Neurology
The division of General and Community Neurology provides most of the general neurology care at Duke. This care is performed on an inpatient and outpatient basis at Duke Hospital, and at our sister hospitals at Duke Regional Hospital and Duke Raleigh Hospital.
Watch Jodi Hawes, MD, discuss her interests in general neurology and neurorehabilitation, as well as how she gets to know new patients.
About the Division
Duke values the role of the general neurologist both in evaluation and treatment of patients and the education of residents and students. Outpatients are seen daily in Duke Neuroscience Clinic 1L, Duke North Duke Street Clinic and the MOB8 outpatient building on the Duke Raleigh campus. Active inpatient consultation services at Duke and at the Durham VA Medical Center allow residents to see a spectrum of patients under faculty supervision; our providers perform additional inpatient consultations at Duke Regional and Duke Raleigh. Our senior residents who desire more clinic exposure can take additional electives in general neurology with an emphasis on a community model. Lastly, through our Duke Private Diagnostic Clinic partnership with Kernodle Clinic, we have additional neurology expertise west of the Triangle.
Our faculty are leaders in neurological education and participate in core rotations for Duke Medical students at all three Duke sites, core faculty for the Adult Neurology Residency Program and Program Directorship for the Neurology APP Residency Program. Our faculty are also involved in educational research as well as clinical research with the Neurology Clinical Research Organization.
In addition to being general neurologists, our providers are also trained and certified specialists in other areas of neurology. These areas include epilepsy (Matthew Luedke, MD, Michael Pietak, MD), sleep disorders (Paul Peterson, MD, FACEP, Mariam Wasim, MD), neuromuscular diseases (Justin Mhoon, MD, Michael Reynolds, MD, Ashley Whyte-Rayson, MD), clinical neurophysiology (Hemang Shah, MD, Christian Robles, MD, Zachary Potter, MD), rehabilitation neurology (Jodi Hawes, MD) and sports neurology (Joel Morgenlander, MD). Additionally, general neurology faculty provides care at the Durham VA Medical Center (Scott Strine, DO, Matthew Luedke, MD). The division also provides opportunities for additional training for residents, fellows and students.
