Shiva Kincaid, MD
Peace Haven Internal Medicine
1930 N. Peace Haven Road, Winston-Salem

Medical Degree: Bowman Gray School of Medicine (Wake Forest School of Medicine)

Question: What brought you to Wake Forest Baptist?

Answer: I am a native of Winston-Salem. After attending Georgetown University as an undergraduate, I returned to the medical school here for a unique opportunity to be part of one of only two problem-based curriculums in the country. With family and friends in the area, a wonderful geographic location with close proximity to lakes, mountains, and beaches as well as four glorious seasons, it was the obvious choice to stay and practice. By staying in the Wake Forest Baptist system, I have a close relationship with the specialists with whom I may care for patients.

Q: What are your clinical specialties?

A: As an internist, I am trained in all fields of medicine. I enjoy the diversity it allows and see adult patients of all ages. I am also a proponent of preventive care. The technology we have to avoid health problems often far exceeds that which we have to treat problems after they develop.

Q: What is your patient care philosophy?

A: To deliver the best possible care for each patient based on his/her unique situation. I strive to empower patients to be able to manage their own care.

Q: What do you enjoy most about working with patients?

A: I enjoy getting to know patients and helping them attain optimal health. Over the years many patients have become part of my second extended family. Many have been with me since I started practicing 13 years ago.

Q: What type of volunteer and/or community activities are you involved in?

A: As a mother of three active children, I make time to participate regularly in school activities. I am also active in their extracurricular lives which include soccer, swimming, basketball, field hockey, tennis and piano.

Q: What fun facts should we know about you?

A: I enjoy travel, painting, the outdoors, photography, sailing, gardening, cooking and architecture. Over the years I have also come to enjoy construction. I have put on a roof, hung and taped dry wall, tiled floors, and laid block foundation and pavers. I also have done body work on automobiles.

Having been a patient of *Dr. K for several years, we have developed a good working rapport/communication relationship. Very thorough visit today (50 min.)


Dr. Kincaid is the best and most thorough physician I've ever had. shows deep concern for my health issues.


I`ve had less than pleasant experiences at Doctor`s office visits in the past. Never have I been less than extremely happy with service from Dr. Kincaid or the entire staff at peacehaven!


Dr. Kincaid is a very competent physician who cares for her patients.


Excellent doctor.


Doctor spent a good amount of time with me. I expected her to be rushed as she was running an hour late, but she took her time with me which was appreciated.


spend more time on the computer, than listening to me.


I have significant confidence in Dr. Kincaid given the limitations she labors under.


It is good to have someone to rely on in health matters. Their time is valuable with so many to look after. I know I'm being looked after. Sometimes, I may not understand something, but that could apply to any situation other than medical. I ask questions if I don't understand something.


Experience was good, I think it odd that my physician is now a data input person and spent an amazing amount of time having to verify and update info in the computer and I think that took away from exam time.


Everyone at the office is nice and considerate - Dr. Kincaid is a great Doctor - Her nurse, Beverly, is kind and talks to me and ask me about my medicine(if I'm still taking)


not good


I was disappointed that she seemed rather dismissive of my concerns about the side effects of medication I had been put on after my previous visit, and also dismissive about my concerns about how I was feeling in general, and how I have had far more aches and pains than normal since my previous visit on March 2nd. I didn't feel that I accomplished much of anything with this visit. And I did receive a letter with the results of my x-ray (I had been told by the technician that I would receive a phone call, but I did not), but there are several technical terms on it such that I really don't know what it is saying (the words are not in the dictionary).


*Dr. Kincaid does an excellent job.


Unfortunately the provider spends too much time retrieving or entering information on the computer. It also seemed that the provider had only a specific amount of time for my appointment.


great doctor,glad I found her.she talks to you in terms you can understand and relate to.


I hadn't had a check up in several years. Dr. Kincaid has a wonderful "bedside manner."


Dr. Kincaid is super. She has such a kind and warm personality and a way of putting you at ease. I feel I can talk to her about anything and everything without being judged. I trust her diagnostic ability implicitly and have never questioned or doubted her plan of care.


Not sure what else to tell you, great visit and as always I was very satisfied.


I won't go any where else


Doctor gave me the facts and guided me to make the best decision regarding tests!


Dr. Kincaid is a very knowledgeable doctor and always has a caring attitude.


Dr Kincaid seems like an old friend. She must take great notes because she knows what is going on with me and in my life. She listens, offers encouragement and takes care to understand and provide the best treatment she can.


#8. No problem. #9. Thanks.


No bad experience. #9. 100%.


Dr. Kincaid and Beverly, her CMA, are the best!


One of the things I appreciate about this provider is her willingness to hear my concerns about the health care options available for my conditions and to work with me as a person, not as a number.


Dr. Kincaid has been a phenomenal physician. She is highly methodical and oriented to detail. She remembers me and my concerns. She has developed a good style for providing care in this awful digital era that requires doctors to document everything on the computer. I find her to be reliable, and caring, and knowledgable. I never feel judged. She is a model doctor and I hope Baptist will work hard to keep her here.


Caring, no-nonsense, and inspired confidence


I do not like that her laptop is what she is looking at all of my visit.


Very professional an knowledgeable


Provider was there for me as I went through cancer treatment - she is the one who insisted on the mammogram & scheduled it.


Shiva Kincaid take the time to fully listen and explain. I have recommended her to a number of people.


I have a great deal of confidence in Dr. Kincaid.


Dr. Kincaid was excellent.


this visit was very pleasant,my provider showed more interest in my medical care, much better than previous visits




*Dr. Kincaid has checked my feet each visit. I'm diabetic & no other provider has ever checked my feet.


great no problems


Dr. Kincaid is a really good physician, and we have a very good relationship. I trust her expertise and knowledge, and appreciate that she listens actively to my concerns and thoughts.


I am very comfortable with Dr. Kincaid


Dr. Kincaid always offers excellent health information regarding my care. Very helpful easy to talk to.


*Dr. Kincaid & I have good dr./patient relationship.


Dr. Kincaid always takes the time to explain medical care thoroughly.


Dr. Shiva Kincaid is a very good physician, and I trust her expertise. The staff is very friendly and very competent.


I have recommended Dr. Kincaid to some of friends.


Dr.Kincaid is a great doctor and I consider her a "friend', who will listen to my concerns, which sometimes aren't medical, and she is always cheerful and she realy makes me feel better mentally after seeing her! I have recommended her to family and friends She is A ONE in my book!


Physician is forced to spend the majority of our visit time interacting with the computer rather than with me. After she's spent 20 mins. on the machine, I get a 5-10 session with her. Doesn't seem very patient-centered.


Wait time longer than usual.


I've recommended Dr. Kincaid to several friends and they are very pleased.


The requirements to get all info into the computer really hampered how much time the doctor could spend interacting with me.


Dr. Kincaid is an excellent physician.


doctor had to fill out so many forms during appt that I lost communication and eye contact with her. the doc should have a scribe so she can focus on me better. she did some of that but much time typing. not good for understanding the patient. not good for communication to have her head in the computer. get scribes.


*Dr. Kincaid was very nice however I felt that she moved through the appointment very quickly. I also felt like there was a definite barrier between us, I'm sick, she's not because she kept her mask on for the entire visit even though she determined it was on allergies! May be trivial but during the visit you feel like you have something more serious when your NP goes to such lengths.


Always 100% AOK


This lady is a great doctor. I always leave with a great deal of confidence in her decisions.


I like the follow up letters this doctor sends after seeing her if you need to follow up with things like extra lab, etc.


If one has to go to a medical facility, Aegis is the place to go and Dr. Kincaid is the doctor to see!


Dr. Shiva is an outstanding physician! She may be a little overloaded.


My provider could spend more time with me if she didn't have to be a data entry operator. Sometimes I have to wait in the examining room because she is inputting data of the previous patient. she is trying to type while listening to my concerns. not in favor of this.


All good, no complaints


All experiences have been good.


Overall I like this doc very much. After all the time she spent on the computer, she managed to attend to me and I felt like she was really listening and concerned.
