I moved to North Carolina from Michigan over the summer. While I don't need to go in for my yearly exam until June, I'd like to see a gyno to discuss some issues I'm having with my BCP (Lo-Ovral generic) and the possibility of getting an IUD. My insurance can give me a list of covered gynos, but that doesn't tell me a whole lot about their actual doctor-ing. I don't really know anyone down here I'd be comfortable asking for recommendations, thus I turn to y'all!
I'm between Salisbury and Albemarle (both are a half hour away). I wouldn't mind driving an hour to see a good doctor, so I'm expanding my search to Charlotte and Winston-Salem/Greensboro, which are an hour-ish away. I know that there are PPs in both of those cities, but again, I don't know anything about their reputations.
I'm 23, NP, sexually active, cisgendered, and straight, and would prefer a female practitioner who is open-minded and hopefully fat-friendly. I don't have any preference between OB-GYN/midwife/etc., as I've been checked out by both a doctor and a midwife before.
Thanks for any suggestions!
