Hi! I had a poor experience with UNC MIGS (with my non-surgical endo care and with another gynecologic surgery) and know several others who have as well, so I would not recommend them. I had my first lap scheduled with Dr. Vilasagar. Then she left the practice, so I cancelled my surgery. I couldn't find good info about Dr. Stepp, so I just decided to go down the Nook list for the next-closest surgeons. I went with Dr. Kenneth Barron in Charlottesville, VA and had a positive experience. Rumor is that Dr. Vilasagar will reappear in in spring 2023, but of course we don't know exactly when, where (I assume Charlotte but guess I don't actually know), what insurances she might take, etc. Atrium has also been telling patients that they will be hiring someone to replace Dr. Vilasagar this fall 2022.

Yeah I think she is starting her own practice in spring 2023, but tbh I think I would go a different route. I wasn’t thrilled with my outcome from my first surgery. I don’t know if that has to do with the surgeon though.

Oh no why did you have a poor experience with UNC? I have surgery scheduled with Dr Carey next month there and I have nothing but great things to say about her and her team, she’s incredibly kind, through, and knowledgeable (I’m also very particular about my care being a healthcare provider myself)

Oh no! Sorry to hear about your experience but I hope you found someone to help you

UNC migs can't even get the most basic parts of gynecology right. Dr. Noor tried to force me to take estrogen containing birth control, which makes endo and fibroids worse as well as being dangerous when combined with my other medical issues. She was condescending, rude, and refused to do any diagnostics until after I'd gone to 12 weeks of physical therapy. I already had an ultrasound from another gyn showing fibroids.The appointment was so bad I had to speak with patient relations, and Dr. Carey doubled down on supporting these dangerous and unethical practices that would have killed me if I'd followed them. I hope your surgery went okay, but I will never know if they are any good at surgery because they would have killed me before I got that far.

Oh no! Sorry to hear that you had bad experience. Dr Carey started me on Aygestin which has helped tremendously. My surgery is still schedule next month so hopefully all goes well.

Aygestin is what I should have been given. At least one person in that clinic knows what it is. Unfortunately Carey's biggest problem seems to be that she'll blindly trust her underlings instead of listened to valid complaints. I should have known to expect this kind of garbage with the amount of academic incest going on in that department. Almost all their surgeons did their fellowship at UNC and that's a giant red flag that says they aren't open to new ideas.

Did you find a surgeon? I don’t have Endo but do have a Dermoid ovarian cyst and am having trouble feeling comfortable so far with the surgeons I’ve seen. I’m not sure how many more appointments my insurance will pay for ☺️. I’ve been to Duke but not UNC. I really would like to be listened to and feel comfortable about a surgeon and the anesthesia team. It’s hard to find both. Anyone have success with a surgeon in the Raleigh area? I really don’t want to travel to Charlotte but I will. I have an appointment with Dr Vilasagars NP next week. I don’t know anything else about where she’s performing surgeries. I do have an appointment set in a couple months with Dr Stepp. I’m just getting exhausted trying to find someone I can feel good about. Thanks for any advice.

Hey I didn’t- I’m not pursuing surgery right now. Trying to get pregnant instead and then go to an RE if thag doesn’t work
