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.

She is extremely knowledge. She listens and is thorough she shows kindness and has a good understanding of my medical needs. We have a good rapport and she has my respect I do believe she is the best primary dr. I have had.

I appreciate Dr. Shiva's concern for both my 89 year old Mom(the patient) and I(the caregiver). She confirms my concern, provides information regarding how to care for Mom, and reminds me to care for myself. :)
