I am looking for a good obstetrician in the brunswick county area. I ran across the name of Dr. Susan Wilson. Is there anyone who knows anything about this doctor or can give other recommendations. Thanks

Made the list for Best Doctors in North Carolina 2008
Business North Carolina

this year's list of the state's best doctors has grown to more than 1,300. That's up nearly 50% from last year. Best Doctors, which polls physicians nationwide, received record responses for the 2008-09 list. Doctors are asked whom they would choose if they or a member of their family needed a specialist. Fewer than 5% of North Carolina's 29,000 licensed physicians made the list.

By the way you ask for an ob and don't mention the gyn part, I assume this is for a pregnancy?

If so I have a few things to say! I recently moved to this area, and had a baby in December. I had to move in the middle of a pregnancy and I chose to have the baby in Wilmington because I was sort of, well, ok, VERY afraid to have the baby at Brunswick because I was afraid if I had complications, they don't have a NICU, etc- it seemed safer to go on to Wilmington in the first place than to chance it. I had a TERRIBLE birth experience at New Hanover in Wilmington, just AWFUL. BAD BAD BAD....due to the staff mostly, it was simply horrific. I would still be a little worried about trying Brunswick Hospital but could I go back in time, I think I would, rather than go to Wilmington- this is my experience. However......if I was going to go to Wilmington my experience maybe could have been better had I seen different doctors, and I wish I had seen the group that several people I know have used and been happy with- Glen Meade OB/GYN.

As for Brunswick County I personally (myself) have no experience with Dr. Susan Wilson, but when I was doing some checking with my inlaws who know a lot of people here, her name came up and I heard that her patients love her. Apparently she works with her husband....there is another doctor right next door to that office- it is the same office, but they have them separated out by different doors- actually, my advice from personal experience is if you choose that office, see Dr, Wilson and AVOID the other side, Dr. Swaim and Dr. Hassler. Dr. Hassler no longer delivers anyway, and I have never seen him but I have heard nothing but had things about him. And honestly, I had 2 visits with Dr. Swaim and transferred out. I will leave it at that.

Brunswick County does not have much picking for OB's....and it seems Susan Wilson is one of the more recommended ones. So if you go with Brunswick County I would think she'd be fine.

I can't emphasize how horrible my birth experience was at New Hanover if you want more details let's just say it's BAD when the anesthesiologist can't do his job at all and the anesthesia does not work at all, and the nurses are rude and your baby almost arrives without a doctor in the room because they're not checking you like they should. Then afterwards, almost everyons is rude. I am truly traumatized looking back, and VERY grateful that I didn't have a c-section. My back is still screwed up from the anesthesiologist trying to jam the epidural in over and over because he couldn't get it to work.

For Wilmington, I hear good things about him, too. I forgot to mention, if going to Wilmington, also avoid Carolina OB. Their office is very poorly managed, one of their triage nurses can be quite rude, and the office is not very responsive either. Some of the doctors are ok but not great, the office is NOT at all.

As an example, I was in a situation where I had a slight complication, and being that I live about an hour away from the hospital in Wilmington, the DOCTORS were telling me over and over to call the office when my contractions were no less than 10 minutes apart and regular. The triage nurse kept arguing with me insisting that I NOT try to come in and refusing to page the doctors. She insisted they would send me home if I showed up like the DOCTORS told me to. She was going against the doctors, and she is their triage nurse! I ended up being induced for the complication. But the triage nurse had no business going against the doctors and being uncooperative.

All JME. I wish I had gone to Glen Meade, or Dr. Wilson in Brunswick Co.
