I’m moving to the CLT area next month and am in the process of lining up new doctors. Anyone have an opinion on the Presbyterian vs. Carolinas Medical maternity wards – as far as service/care, consultants/programs/education, etc. Your opinions will help me in selecting a new doctor.

I've been to both and find they are both similar and both excellent.

I used CMC Pineville and I was blown away with their sevice. I delivered my fourth child there, my previous three being at two different hospitals in another state, and I couldn't believe the difference. The nurses were excellent, and everybody was very accomodating and considerate of little things.
My obgyn is actually iassociated with Presbyterian, but they use CMC Pineville for delivery because they like that maternity center better, so there must be a reason??

I really think your thoughts on what you want for prenatal and birth care should be the major factor in determining a doctor. I had a great birth experience at CMC-University because I was VERY clear on what I wanted for my child's birth. However, I have since left the OB practice that I went to at the time because the doctors' (non-medical) opinions of childbirth and my own were very different. I realized that it was much more important for me to find a doctor who respected my wishes without giving his/her own unsolicited (non-medical advice) than it was to go back to the same hospital...even though the nurses were fantastic.
(I hope that makes sense.)

Most of my doctors were at Presby, but some were at CMC. I always got exceptional care no matter the field of medicine (and I had a LOT of specialists!) My OB/GYN was Dr. Andrew Zerkle...an incredible doctor. I think he might be affiliated with CMC. I never had my children there (had them in another state) and I never had to be hospitalized under his care, but I heard enough good things about him to go to him for my GYN needs. I LOVED him and his staff is so nice and professional!

He also has great credentials...I check before I go to a new doctor. Best Wishes!
