"Being a pediatrician is my dream job! I went to college to study engineering but was fortunate to discover medicine instead. I find my work to be challenging but rewarding. I grew up in the Navy and ended up in Wilmington after my parents retired here. What a great place to live!"

Susannah Aylesworth, MD, FAAP


''Dr. Aylesworth is so sweet and truly takes the time to talk with my child at his appointments.''


''Dr. Aylesworth is absolutely amazing! My daughter has been a patient of hers since day one and I wouldn't have it any other way! She answers all my questions with plenty of details and makes sure my daughter is healthy and taken care of. Unlike most doctors, she takes her time in the room and as a first time mom it's really nice to have a doctor that is willing to discuss and answer every question or concern that I may have about my daughter.''
