I have been a patient of Dr. Wilson’s for several years before I decided to have children, so when I found out I was pregnant, I knew I wouldn’t have my child anywhere but at Boone and with Dr. Wilson.
My son was born on August 23, 2005, by C-section. He was supposed to be an overly large baby but luckily he was a normal 7 pounds.
The team that helped Dr. Wilson in the operating room were by far the best ever. Since I had a C-section, I was in the hospital for four days. After a couple of days, the operating room staff still knew who I was and stopped me several times to ask how we were all doing and even came by my room to check on us.
I found out later that I was the only new Mom on the floor with my own room because there were so many babies born that week. One nurse especially worked extra hard with me when I was trying to breast feed, without her I would of given it up at the beginning.
I ended up with the baby blues and have to give a high five to Dr. Wilson and her staff for how they handled me and the most horrible thing to happen after you have a baby.
I hold them in the highest regard ever.
I have and always will recommend Dr. Wilson, her staff and Boone Hospital to all of my friends and family.
Thanks for being such a wonderful place and for making the birth of my first child a wonderful experience.
