I have been SO unhappy with the health care in Coastal Carolina. I'm generally healthy but both my husband and I have had a couple of issues over the last few years. After being appalled by the level of care offered to us on base (Camp Lejeune), we've both tried Docs out "in town"- I've gone everywhere from Wilmington to Morehead City and I swear they're all subpar.

So no, we're not necessarily healthy... we're just not happy

We also have not been crazy about health care on the coast. Too many GP's and not enough specialists. I have not found an Internal Med person i would trust, so I go to a Family Practice in Surf City for my blood pressure medication. Since they also do urgent care, I waited around for an hour after my appointment and walked out. They were mobbed with vacationers.

Since the OP asked about two specialties I have no experience with, all I could suggest is one of the ones associated with New Hanover Regional. Other than that, would the OP consider going to Durham or Raleigh?

My wife's a Doctor but she's in Greenville not the area your looking at which is why I never answered your question. I have no idea on your area's, but if you need Doctors in Greenville I can help out.

A whole lot of people, from all over Eastern Carolina, come to Greenville for their medical needs. I've generally been happy with my care.

I suspect there are more polite ways to ask for follow-ups to your inquiry.

I was in emergency room last night at Cape Fear Hospital in Wilmington and was not happy with our experience as opposed to hospitals in Northern Virginia. Care and help were slow and seemingly no common sense on who should be next in line for care in the emergency room based on distress and pain levels. Nurses were ambivalent compared to emergency room care my family has received in Fairfax County or Prince William county in Northern Virginia. However that was just one hospital; I will not be taking any of my 6 kiddos to that hospital again if I can help it.

On the flip side I went directly to a sports medicine clinic 2 weeks ago and in 15 seconds was diagnosed and received medical treatment that healed me that week. But I don't know about specialists outside the orthopedic realm . But with orthopedics I got the impression that the area was excellent for medical care.

Before I moved here,I had asked my doctors how to find good doctors here,they said to ask people,which has been very hard to do, it seems no one has a doctor they like or trust,starting to think maybe living up north isn`t so bad,plenty of excellant doctors there. What to do if you have a serious health issue
