I'm not sure about vbac but Dr. Al (not sure how to spell is name ) at Lake Norman OB is amazing. Also the doctors at Copperfield OB in Concord are great too,definitely worth checking them out.

The ICAN (International Cesarean Awareness Network) website has a list of hospitals in each state and states whether they allow vbacs, have a ban, or defacto ban. It's the website I used to find a hospital where I had my vbac.

You may just want to call around. My doc says that VBAC's aren't really as scary as they used to be. They just said they won't induce me.

I don't live there, but good luck!! I'm in the same boat in my area, trying to find a VBAC friendly doctor.

Look at midwives in the area, a quick google search shows that there are some in the area and they should certainly be VBAC friendly.  

If you go with an OB, ask at your first appointment just how VBAC friendly they are.  Ask what his C-section rate is, ask if they will let you move around when you are in labor -- my "VBAC friendly" doctor was going to require constant monitoring and didn't have a portable monitor, so I would only be allowed to move within 3-4 feet.  

Do you want to be in a tub/shower at all? Does your doctor allow that? 

What kind of support does your doctor allow in the room? A doula? 

All questions you'll want to ask.  I say this as someone who was very mislead by a VBAC friendly doctor.  I wound up switching around 33 weeks and couldn't have been happier with the outcome.
