Child & Family Psychology

My practice focuses on taking care of patients living with chronic kidney disease, kidney failure and high blood pressure. I enjoy getting to know my patients over time and helping them make important health decisions. As a researcher at Duke, I lead a chronic kidney disease “early warning” program designed to connect kidney patients to the right care at the right time. When I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading and woodworking.

Pediatric Medicine

I love my job. I feel honored in my profession to have the unique privilege of being ensured with the trust and confidence of patient's lives and emotions. I enjoy learning from my patients as much as I love teaching them about their illnesses and helping them lead healthier lives. The study of medicine has allowed me to pursue my fascination with the scientific intricacies of the human body and my passion for creating long-lasting, meaningful relationships with my patients. Outside of the office, I enjoy running, hiking, cooking, and sitting on the porch with family and friends.

Pediatric Medicine

I am a med-peds hospitalist and researcher with interests in improving systems of care of patients with complex health needs. My research focus areas include implementation science, population health sciences, community-engaged research, and digital health. My vision is to design, implement, evaluate, and scale programs and interventions that will simplify the delivery of complex care. By doing so, we can equitably improve the health outcomes that matter most to children and adults with complex health needs and their families.

Geriatric Medicine

It is a great privilege to see older adult patients in consultation and to work with them, their families, and their primary care physicians to ensure the highest quality of health and wellness. I am especially interested in the care of those with cognitive difficulties, those who struggle with mood changes, and those who find themselves serving as caregivers to others.

Psychiatry & Behavioral Health
Behavioral Health

Dr J Nathan Copeland is an assistant professor in the Duke Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and an attending child and adolescent psychiatrist at the Duke Center for Autism and Brain Development. He completed medical school at the University of Tennessee and both his general adult psychiatry residency and child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Dr. Copeland has interests in the management of mental illness and mental health among autistic and developmentally different children, integrated care with a focus on improving mental health access in the primary care setting, and mental health advocacy. Dr Copeland is a child psychiatrist with the North Carolina Psychiatry Access Line, medical director of the Duke Primary Care Behavioral Health Program, legislative affairs chair for the North Carolina Psychiatric Association, president-elect of the North Carolina Council of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and he is a representative to the Assembly of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. Surrounding all of this work, he has the pleasure and privilege of working with supportive and passionate colleagues at Duke who are driven to improve the health and well-being of individuals and the communities that we serve.

Palliative Medicine

As a board certified clinical health psychologist, my clinical work and research primarily focuses on military psychology, chronic disease, mood disorders, and chronic pain. I am also invested in the area of understanding the dynamic factors that contribute to body image disturbance in African American and Caribbean populations. I frequently travel to Caribbean countries—particularly my birthplace of Jamaica—for scientific exploration and to maintain cultural connections. Currently, I am involved in scientific collaborations focused on chronic disease and body image disturbance with the University of the West Indies, Jamaica.

Internal Medicine

Dr. Greenblatt serves as Medical Director for Northern Piedmont Community Care which provides practice support, care management, and population management primarily for Medicaid recipients. In addition to this role, he focuses his professional efforts in two additional domains. First, he provides care to a busy general internal medicine panel utilizing an approach that is both patient-centered and evidence-based.  Second, he is an active educator routinely providing clinical teaching to students and residents. He routinely regularly provides faculty development in teaching and other skills for medical educators across many professions both in Durham and in the Academic Medicine Education Institute in Singapore and is currently working on developing systems and policy to improve opioid safety both for Duke Health System and the State of North Carolina.

Internal Medicine
Child & Adolescent Psychiatry

I have always been interested in hearing people's stories and trying to understand their experiences. I was drawn to psychiatry as I sought to understand how the struggles that each of us faces can impact us across the lifespan. As a child psychiatrist, I have studied how to help a person heal and recover from these struggles. There is a lot that psychiatry can offer, but it all starts with forming a good relationship between the psychiatrist and each individual patient, learning what a patient needs, and what they are working towards. Each of us is doing the best we can at any given time, and I hope that every interaction I have with a patient provides some hope of how things can continue to improve. I have a specific interest in depression, anxiety disorders, trauma, psychotic disorders, and ADHD. My current focus is how to help reduce the stigma of seeking mental health care and improve access to care in our state.

Child & Adolescent Psychiatry

I specialize in adolescent and young adult medicine. This includes all primary care needs of adolescents, including those transitioning into adulthood as well as young adults up to age 30. I also care for patients with a variety of complex needs, including those with various chronic illnesses, eating disorders, behavioral challenges, reproductive health concerns, developmental difficulties and patients facing diagnostic dilemmas. My priority is to provide personalized care with a broad view of each young person's entire life with the goal of promoting positive development and future success.

Geriatric Medicine

My interest in geriatrics is inspired by the stories and experiences of my grandparents and other grand-aunts and grand-uncles. WWII veterans, business owners, immigrants, and yacht builders: they each have had a fascinating story to tell. Being a geriatrician has helped me turn my appreciation for my family into a career where I help older adults live their lives to the fullest. I enjoy focusing on quality of life with my patients by discussing goals and priorities at every visit.
