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.

I believe Dr. Kincaid is one of the best if not the best Dr. I have had. She is very knowledgeable and caring. I feel very lucky to have her as my primary Dr.
Overall very good experience
office staff always nice,friendly,
Dr. Kincaid is the best!
Dr. Kincaid spoke with me in detail about steps to maintain good health and test I need as I just turned 50. I always receive attentative and quality care.
i would like to recommend Dr. Shiva Kincaid to others, but she has a full load of patients. I especially would like for my husband to be within her patient roster and continue to ask in hopes of an opening for taking a new patient.
I moved to North Carolina in 1995, *Doctor Kincaid, MD has been my doctor since then.
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.
Dr. Kincaid really does care about helping me to attain my best health! She always encourages me to eat healthily and exercise. She knows me well enough that to encourage me to set realistic and attainable goals to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
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. :)
Was on computer immediately, when I tried to explain how ACCIDENT - quickly - she imed. said, "just - "hold" - kept typing - gave med - prescription for COLD, & was gone!
*Dr. Kincaid is a caring and to me almost perfect MD.
Dr. Kincaid has been my primary care physician for over 10 years and I could not ask for a better personal doctor. I feel fortunate to have her as my physician.
Not sure what else I can tell you. Would not have had it any other way. I was very sick and she reacted to it with the correct diagnosis and medicine. Very happy now.
Doctor Kincaid has been my doctor for 22years,
I feel she is going through a script- talks very fast. It feels as if she is transferring responsibility of my care to meand removing her accountability for my treatment.For example, today she gave me the option of 2 prescriptions and asked me to choose which one. This made me feel that the responsibility for the treatment choice was on me- someone without sufficient knowledge to make that call. It is as if she is removing her accountability for my treatment. I don't want to pick my treatment - I want to be treated by an educated and experienced professional. Another example is when I said I had a specific problem. She asked if I wanted her to look at said problem. Of course I wanted her to look at it!! Why would I bring it up if I didn't? I wanted her to instead say Let me take a look' and act as if she gave a damn about my health and not put the responsibility all on me. She made me feel like I was disgusting. Today I was scolded for not showing up 15 minutes before my appointment before she even said hello. I was already on edge- nervous about the appointment. This put me over the edge and ruined the appointment. I felt like a bad child. I felt very belittled. She had no idea my state of mind and obviously didn't care. I didn't bring up the fact that I had taken the day off of work a few weeks earlier for this annual appointment and it was rescheduled the morning of the appointment for this new date because she had to leave the office that day. She is very abrasive and argumentative. Doesn't want to hear what I am saying. Not compassionate at all. I don't feel like she cares at all about me. She's just going through the motions to collect a paycheck.
Dr. Shiva Kincaid takes her time and talk to you and include you in the conversation in trying to determine the best care for whatever health problem your having at the time.
Mrs. Kincaid has been my doctor for years. I wouldn't trade her for another.
Dr. Kincaid is very mindful of the time she can spend with each patient. It is unfortunate that she has to enter information into the computer 2 times while you are in the examination room with her. Also, the time restraint pushes her to talk quickly and move on to the next patient. Well educated in many areas and concise.
