About the Clinic
Providers at the UNC Hypertension Clinic use a multidisciplinary approach to evaluate and manage high blood pressure, with skilled nurses, pharmacists, and specialists in heart disease (cardiologists) and kidney disease (nephrologists) working together to provide you with the correct diagnosis and develop an individualized treatment plan. We place a heavy emphasis on modifying lifestyle factors that contribute to high blood pressure. We also embrace patient engagement and self-blood pressure monitoring. In collaboration with our pharmacists, we strive to find medications that are effective, affordable, and well-tolerated. Finally, we participate in clinical trials that offer advanced, innovative treatment techniques.

Preparing for Clinic Appointments
Please bring all of your current medications. This will enable your providers in the clinic to check for drug interactions and make suggestions for changes in your hypertension drugs to help get your blood pressure under better control.
Please complete our short lifestyle survey to help us identify areas where changes in your eating habits and exercise patters may help your blood pressure control.
Blood pressure monitoring
If you have a home blood pressure monitor, please record blood pressures at home for the week before your appointment using the schedule described here. Below are links to files to help you, including detailed instructions on how to monitor your blood pressure, and a blood pressure log that you can print and fill in with your values. Please bring your monitor and a record of your blood pressures to your clinic appointment.
