Private Diagnostic Clinic: Advancing Health Together and Delivering Tomorrow's Health Care Today









The Private Diagnostic Clinic (PDC) is the physician practice of Duke Health. It is one of the first and the largest academic multi-specialty group practices in the United States. 

The PDC is a member-led organization with 1,850 members, and is governed by a Board of Managers. 

As a professional limited liability company (PLLC), the PDC owns and operates more than 140 primary care and specialty care clinics throughout central and eastern North Carolina. Through a diverse and integrated network of providers, patients have convenient, accessible and high quality primary and specialty care close to home. 

In addition to patient care, PDC members conduct cutting-edge research and train the future health care workforce as faculty in the Duke University School of Medicine.

The PDC collaborates with other entities within the Duke University Health System to expand opportunities and advance Duke's clinical, research and academic missions.
