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.

Very good doctor!!


Dr. Shelburne is down to earth and easy to talk to. His response is very caring and he shows empathy towards you. I wish I would have found one like him a long time ago. More residents need to take lessons from him.




I will go their until I die.


I am very impressed with Dr Shelburne. He has a warm, friendly & caring demeanor. He always discusses the options & gets my input before deciding on a treatment plan. I feel very comfortable having him as my PCP.


Dr Shelbourne is professional, efficient, and the most prompt medical care provider that I have ever had.....I have had women primary doctors for the past 40plus years and was apprehensive about seeing him....I am astounded by his acceptance of me and his knowledge and care.






Dr. Shelbourne genuinely wants decisions made about my care to be mutually agreeable. He respects what I tell him and my opinions, welcomes my questions, and works to find a solution we both are comfortable with.


An outstanding doctor, knowledgeable, patient, thorough, & friendly. I have and will continue to recommend him highly.

Dr. Shelburne was very friendly and professional and he was truly interested in me and showed great care and compassion.


Dr. Shelburn is probably the best primary care doctor I have ever had. I appreciate his genuine concern, his bed side manner, and the time he is willing to give (when I see him I don't feel like I am just another patient on a long list for the day).


Always excellent


Dr. Shelbourne was very thorough in his care and was easily accessible via emails.


None - very good.


I have never had a bad experience


I have recommended this provider.


Knowledgeable and efficient.


This provider is bright, relaxed and confident. He has a way of being with a patient that feels good. One time there was some brief conversation around my age and he is obviously much younger than I. His light humor and gentle spirit eliminated any concern I might have had about that (I didn't but he didn't know that. He approached the possibility well).


just good experience


the best doctor ever...


Could not ask for a better Doctor than David Shelburne for my family and I!


Dr Shelburne is very easy to talk with, he displays a professional yet friendly attitude, seems very well informed about the medical problems I have discussed with him. Have recommended him to other family members.

I am very pleased with Dr. Shelbourne's bedside manner and professionalism. He has that perfect balance of "I'm smart" and "I'm nice." I ALWAYS feel safe and well cared for when I come to the doctor.


Always excellent! I have never had a bad experience.


Dr. Shelburne is always helpful


The doctor provide was thoughtful, but I felt that he wasn't familiar with my history. The physical exam didn't seem thorough which adds to my anxiety.


great doctor


I had an iron and B12 problem and was telling Dr. Shelburne that even carrying the baby carrier was suddenly extremely draining. When he sent me to the lab, he actually took the time to carry the baby carrier for me! I know doctors are very busy these days, but everyone at this office makes you feel like you are the most important patient of the day.


Dr. Shelburne is one of the best, if not the best, medical professional I have seen.


Dr. Shelburne is awesome! He pays attention and includes my thoughts and concerns in how he delivers his care. He is also very quick to respond in mychart making it very convenient.


Dr. Shelburne is top notch. . . so glad we found him.
