Question: What brought you to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center?

Answer: I have been here for the past seven years. I started with medical school training and was fortunate to join our Family Medicine residency program. I feel that Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center is a health care system that’s on the rise and a cornerstone of medical research and health care excellence.

Q: What are your clinical specialties?

A: The joy of family medicine is my ability to have varied interests. I enjoy caring for all my patients, from newborns to geriatric adults. I have a specific interest in office-based procedures including minor skin surgery, cosmetic dermatology, joint injections, casting/splinting, women’s health procedures including long-term contraceptive options, and wound care. My training in family medicine has prepared me for chronic disease management and preventive medicine across all age groups.

Q: Why did you decide to become a primary care doctor?

A: I was exposed to the incredible field of family medicine as a child. I watched my father, a family physician, provide care for the citizens of my hometown. Family Medicine gives me the opportunity to have a wide range of interests and be an advocate for my patients in the care of their health. My job is to keep them healthy before problems arise and to be there for them when problems occur.

Q: What is your patient care philosophy?

A: I try to act as a guide and mentor for my patients in the management of their health. I believe in educating them about their problems, providing options, and helping them choose their treatment plan. I am a huge proponent of the patient-centered medical home in family medicine, which ensures comprehensive primary care for my patients and the best possible outcomes for their health.

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

A: I enjoy being a person that my patients can feel comfortable seeing for their problems. Together we can work through whatever they are experiencing and find resolution. Every person needs a special physician that they can rely upon.

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

A: The majority of my free time is spent with my wonderful wife and son as we try to educate and teach him about the world around us. I also try to stay active by playing golf and community church softball and in local tennis leagues.

Family Medicine-Reynolda is an advocate for healthcare awareness in our community so we spend time at health fairs in our area and contribute our medical expertise to news outlets in our region.

Q: What fun facts should we know about you?

A: I am a person who truly believes that laughter is the best medicine. I try to incorporate laughter into my daily life as well as the lives of my patients.

Dr. Shelburne is one of the finest physicians I have ever had. He is knowledgeable about my health, listens attentively and expresses a genuine concern with regards to my health. I could not ask for a better physician.

3/27/2018

Dr Shelburne always listens and discusses my care with me and my husband. He tries to know and understand the patient and give the best care tailored for them. I don't feel like a number with him. He takes time and it helps with the process.

3/14/2018

Dr. Shelbourn always takes great care and shows concern over any medical issues I've had. He always looks for the simple answer and does not try to over medicate like so many doctors do.

3/13/2018

all good

3/6/2018

Dr Shelburne is a superior doctor. The sky is the limit on his potential for medical care!

3/5/2018

I have recommended Dr. Shelburne to many people. He sees my entire family. He has always been very kind and understanding. He has helped us through many childhood injuries (stitches, football injuries, broken bones) and because of his level of care, my children refuse to see any other providers.

great doctor

1/25/2018

Dr. Shelburne and I have been dealing with hypertension issues for several months and I feel that he is concerned about my health and trying to make the best decisions to handle the problem. He has been very prompt to answer my concerns via messaging on My Wake Health and recommends an office visit only when he feels it is necessary.

1/10/2018

was thrilled to be able to see someone, anyone that I felt could help and he did. I felt like I had to fight to see him.

1/4/2018

Currently 31 years old, I have not had my blood drawn since I was in second grade. I developed a phobia that makes me panic and pass out. My visit with Dr. Shelburne gave me the confidence and comfort to work through my phobia so I could know vital information from my blood work. The woman that drew my blood, I believe her name is Nida, was especially helpful and understanding. I was shocked that I made it through the experience without passing out. This experience changed my life.

Good

12/13/2017

Dr. Shelburne sees my entire family and he is very efficient and kind. He always spends quality time with us and I never feel rushed even though I know he has other patients waiting for him. My children do not want to see any other provider even when we have critical issues. I have recommended Dr. Shelburne to co-workers who have become patients and are also very pleased with his care.

12/12/2017

David treats me with respect and is quick to define terms and make explanations of concepts of which I'm unfamiliar. He listens with complete sincerity and remembers my concerns from visit to visit. He reads my chart! I appreciate him as a medical scientist and a caring physician. Please let him know he's appreciated.
