She was born in Ohio and grew up in North and South Carolina. She attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she earned her undergraduate degrees in English and Chemistry and her medical degree. She also managed to learn to scuba dive, study literature in England and to meet the man of her dreams along the way. Dr. Roche so loved Chapel Hill (and Michael whom she soon married) that she decided to stay for medical school. She then completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Ohio State University.
Dr. Roche was eager to return to the warmth of the Triangle to settle and raise a family, and she is pleased to be a part of Wilkerson OB/GYN. She loves her job and especially appreciates the opportunity to build relationships with her patients, caring for them through both the joyful as well as the difficult times. She is most happy when spending time with her husband and three energetic children, Vincent, Jack and Chelsea. If any free time can be found, she also enjoys movies, cooking, travel and curling up with a good book.

Dr. Flanagan and her husband, Benji, knew they wanted to return to Raleigh after spending a few years here before she entered medical school. “Although I have only been with Wilkerson OB/GYN since 2005, I hope this is where I practice for the rest of my career. I look forward to taking care of patients through many stages of their lives.”
In her spare time away from Wilkerson OB/GYN, Dr. Flanagan enjoys exercising, watching sports and spending time with her family (husband, Benji; daughter, Claire; son, Jay and their beloved Vizsla, Zoey).

Dr. Matthews loves that OB/GYN is a unique field of medicine, in which he has the opportunity to provide the best care in both the office and the operating room. Getting to know my patients in a clinical setting, as well as preparing them for one of the most important days of their lives is the best part of this specialty. Another particular interest of Dr. Matthews is that of laparoscopic surgery, both with the aid of the DaVinci Robotic Surgical System, as well as with traditional laparoscopic procedures.
He is very excited to explore Raleigh and all it has to offer, especially the numerous golf courses, nearby beaches, mountains and the music scene.
