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.

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 & I have good dr./patient relationship.


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


I have recommended Dr. Kincaid to some of friends.


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


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.


Always 100% AOK


*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.


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.
