Dr. Lisa Cassidy-Vu is a specialist in family medicine. Below is a brief profile about her:
Lisa Cassidy-Vu, MD
Family and Community Medicine
1920 West 1st Street
Piedmont Plaza I, Winston-Salem
336-716-WAKE or 888-716-WAKE
Medical Degree: University of Cincinnati College of Medicine
Residency: Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital (Family Medicine)
Fellowship: Women's Hospital of Greensboro (Obstetrics)
Board Certification: American Board of Family Medicine
Question: What brought you to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center?
Answer: My husband and I wanted to get back to North Carolina because we loved our four years here for residency and fellowships. Dr. Coates offered me a position which allowed me to continue to practice obstetrics and teach residents - things I'm very fond of.
Q: What are your clinical specialties?
A: My specialties are adolescent medicine, obstetrics, family medicine, women's health and newborn medicine.
Q: What is your patient care philosophy?
A: Don't forget to laugh. I think humor is key to healing and better health. I feel I let patients down if they don't have a smile on their face at some point in their visit.
Q: What do you enjoy most about working with patients?
A: The most rewarding aspect for me is when patients really take control of their medical problem with only encouragement from me and no medication. I also enjoy being the first to see and hold a newborn during delivery and then watching a new mom shed tears of joy over her baby.
Q: What type of volunteer or community activities are you involved in?
A: Right now my children take up most of my free time. I work at our Southside Health and Wellness Clinic once a week, and in the past I've helped at the Community Care Center (Centro Clinico) and gone on medical missions to Honduras and Guatemala. I also try to participate at social functions at my church, St. Leo the Great.
Q: What fun facts should we know about you?
I love to eat Vietnamese food (my husband is Vietnamese). I enjoy gardening, especially flowers. I'm also "green" - so much so that colleagues and residents make fun of me for reminding them to recycle, double-side their photocopies, turn off lights, etc. Our nurses laugh when I pick plastic bottles out of the trash to recycle. The chief residents two years ago bought me a "Wake Forest Tree Hugger" shirt.
