About Your Visit

Your appointment to see Dr. Nandan Lad will be in Duke Clinic 1B/1C. We appreciate your prompt arrival, as the clinic is very busy and we make every effort to see patients in a timely manner. In the event of late arrival, there is no guarantee that you will be seen, and your appointment may need to be rescheduled.

Please bring along all medical images, unless your imaging was performed at Duke or you have already sent images to us. Also bring along any other relevant information that may assist us in learning more about your condition. We look forward to seeing you soon!
