UNC Health Care does not offer medical advice via E-mail or this Site in the absence of an existing physician-patient relationship. Any information contained in this Site is not to be used or interpreted in any way for medical use or diagnosis of any condition.
Electronic communication cannot substitute for a medical evaluation in which the physician takes a history from a patient, conducts a physical examination and orders and interprets the appropriate diagnostic tests. It is unwise and unprofessional for a physician to provide medical advice without the information gained from such an evaluation.
If you believe you require medical care from a physician, you should contact UNC Health Care for an appointment at (919) 966-7890. If you need emergency care call 911.
If you would like to contact the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center about correcting information we might have collected, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at CB# 7295, Chapel Hill, NC 27599.
