Dr. Davis Vu is a specialist in family medicine and sports medicine. Below is a brief profile about him:

Davis D. Vu, MD
Peace Haven Family Medicine
1930 North Peace Haven Road, Winston-Salem
336-716-WAKE or 888-716-WAKE

Medical Degree: University of Cincinnati College of Medicine
Board Certification: American Academy of Family Physicians, American Medical Society for Sports Medicine

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

Answer: I wanted to be a part of a proud, local team. The focus on academic, evidence-based medicine at Wake Forest Baptist was my strongest reason for coming on board.

Q: What are your clinical specialties?

A: My clinical specialties are family medicine and sports medicine.

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

A: I’ve always been a curious person, and have always wanted to know how everything works and fits together. But, I also didn’t want to limit myself; I wanted to do a little of everything, see young and old, male and female. In sports medicine, it is fun to work with athletes who are trying to do the right thing by eating right and exercising, and trying to prevent disease before it happens. I want to do anything that I can to keep them going.

Q: What is your patient care philosophy?

A: I believe in focusing on prevention. I like to discuss immunizations, cancer screening, and lifestyle management with my patients. Most of what we see in medicine today can be prevented, but there’s only so much we can do after someone gets sick. For me, the best answer is if patients can help themselves from getting sick through preventative strategies.

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

A: I enjoy getting to know my patients on a personal level. I like to understand where they came from, what their upbringing was like, what is going on in their life right now, what type of work they do and what they are struggling with. Everyone knows that eating right and exercising is the healthy thing to do, but if you are struggling with that because of something else going on in your life, the advice rings hollow.

Q: What do you like to do in your free time?

A: I like to spend time at home with my family, rolling on the floor with the kids, playing games, cooking and eating at home, and working in the yard or on the house. I enjoy being outdoors. I am also a big sports fan.

Dr. Vu is amazing. I have been seeing him for almost 10 years now and have transferred practices just to stay with him. I will continue to do the same as long as I am able to. As far as I am concerned, he is the BEST. He listens, evaluates, speaks open and honestly and has a great approach to health and well being.


Dr. Vu is an excellent doctor, and has always taken good care of my family.


DR.Davis Vu is an excellent doctor. He listens and shows a great deal of concern about any problems. His communication skills are very good relaying information in laymen terms so that they can be understood.


Thank you, Dr. Vu! I felt listened to!


this was a new visit due to prior physician retirement. Dr Vu really helped relate his observations/conclusions to actions I can take to improve my health.


Dr.Vu is also very friendly and always such a pleasure to talk with during my visits. He discusses my health and explains it in a helpful way.


I love my primary care doctor (*Dr. Redding) but it is great to know that there is another doctor I would trust there as well. I have already recommended both doctors (*Redding & *Vu) to a friend.


Provider simplified things a little too much for my husband and I (he saw us both that day). We are intelligent people who keep up with health trends- and weren't made to feel that way. Although I understand this was the first time he saw us and I know this is good practice for the masses...


I had never seen Dr Vu before. I would not hesitate to see him again should Dr. Redding not be available


Dr. Vu is a caring and thoughtful physician.


I really didn't like the way he acted. I felt like he was treating me like I am an idiot. I am firmly aware of my body and what it is telling me(if my body tells me something is wrong I am going to believe it).


My provider is very personable and friendly and as a first time parent he puts my mind at ease.




I have no confidence in my care team.


I endure the excessive wait times because I truly like my care provider and transferred to this practice specifically because of him.


*Dr. Vu is a wonderful provider. Very thorough.


First visit to this office/provider. Overall was impressed.


Always good.


*Dr. Vu is great about listening very carefully!


We love Dr. Vu.


Very goodv


I absolutely love Dr. Vu. I genuinely felt that he cared about me and he listened carefully and thoughtfully to my concerns during my initial visit. Even though I do not have "major" health problems, he still took my concerns very seriously, which really meant a lot to me. I came in another time for what would be considered by most to be a routine procedure, but he treated this very thoroughly and carefully, and it was obvious that he cares a great deal about his patients and his work. I am so glad to have him as my physician and cannot recommend him enough.


Dr. Vu is always super nice and helpful!


I left feeling I had been heard.


This was a first time visit to get established with this doctor. I have faith we will be able to work through my extensive medical history and present conditions in relatively short time. As a transplant recipient 20 years out, I take a serious approach to any changes that may cause organ rejection. As a 70 year old man I know other health issues are important and am always willing to try any suggestions for sustaining quality of life. I believe God has put me in the right place at the right time.


*Dr. Vu is very thorough, and always professional.


*Dr. Vu should be the role model for other PCP's. His ability to listen and speak in a manner that is trustworthy is hard to come by.


I appreciate the care and concern Dr. Vu provides for me. He always gives excellent explanations about conditions and medication as well as alternatives for treatment if I am leery of what is originally presented to me.


All my experiences with this care provider and staff have been good. I have no desire to change anything.


Dr. Vu was very interested in my health condition and past type of care I have received. This was my first visit with Dr. Vu he was very easy to speak with. He first listened and then very carefully explain his opinion about my health and very type of treatments. I feel it was a very good first visit.


The very best care provider I ever had.


I spent more time with the intern. Then dr arrived. It was a bit rushed at that point.


Dr. Vu was great. He was the best primary care physician I have had.




*Dr. Vu went out of his way to answer all questions and he listens carefully!


I have never had a bad experience with my doctor or the Staff.


Dr. Davis Vu is an excellent PCP and I have recommended him to my family and several members have seen him.


I came to Dr Vu to see if he could help me figure out a chronic problem I've had for 16 years. he spent 5 minutels with me and told me it was a menta issue and I should see someone or they have medication for that. I told him that wasn't the problem and I would like help in another avenue. he basically said he would give me a referral to see a specialist. completely disregarded my concerns.


Dr Vu is an excellent care provider with real passion and care. Hope he is my primary care provider for years to come.


Dr. Vu always shows genuine concern and interest for my health; he is very knowledgeable and approachable. I would highly recommend him to my friends and families.


Very good.


Amazing doctor


Dr.Davis Vu is the best doctor!


Dr Vu is an excellent communicator and physician. I would highly recomend him to anyone.


This was my 1st visit. Dr. Vu was very friendly, knowledgeable and down to earth. If I continue to reside in Winston Salem, he will definitely be my pcp.


super quick service. really enjoy knowing I can ask a quick question via the online portal and he responds quickly!


All my experiences have been excellent that my entire family has switched to seeing Dr. Vu. He is courteous, professional, precise, explains in a very understanding way, responds to all of my questions immediately and most of all, he is very pleasant and greets me like we are friends. Excellent overall.


Since the first visit; I have been pleased with the level of care and concern my doctor shows. #6. Explained the procedure.


All experiences have been pleasant, with my care professional and support team.


I have a great Physician/Patient relationship with Dr. Vu. He is very understanding and patient helping me work through the frustration of an acute to chronic condition. I can't thank him enough for all that he does and support that he gives.


dr. wu is a considerate and considerable physician, both personally and professionally. I consider myself lucky to have found him. I don't believe that is over-stated.


Dr Vu is a great doctor. He shows you that he truly cares about you. My husband has a lot of health issues and he listened and took the time to address all his issues. I've never seen anyone do that. We have sent him many messages and he has answered them all and always very prompt and vitreous.


dr. Vu has a great manner in dealing with patients. he listens, asks appropriate questions and good answers.


Dr. Vu is an amazing physician ~ He is caring, attentive, reasonable to "normal" people's life styles, does not make you feel like you have done something 'wrong' ~ He is the epitome of a family doctor. Major KUDOS!!!


Always a wonderful experience with Dr. Vu. He is incredibly thorough and I always feel comfortable and safe with his diagnosis and treatment plans. No matter how busy he is, he always takes his time with me and make sure I am well cared for!


Dr Vu was extremely personable and very thorough in his approach


I have been to this physician twice now with excellent results. I will be having my husband transfer his care to this office and physician also from here on out.




Best doctor ever!!!


Dr. Vu is good about listening and actually treating problems. I refuse to see anyone else.


He asked me if I could do without a sleep medicine I had been taking. I was able to wean off of the medicine and feel better. I am grateful that he picked up on this and encouraged me in this direction.


Davis Vu is a special physician with special talents. It is my privilege to be his patient. He cares. He listens, he considers options, he educates. He is very special.


This was my first visit with Dr. Vu. He was very nice and showed care about helping me with several different concerns that I had in my ongoing treatment. I am very sensitive to how I am treated by others and I was very relaxed (and relived) by the great treatment I received!! I was referred from one of my husbands doctors who is familiar with how sensitive I am about how I am treated, especially at doctors offices.


Dr. Vu was very personable and easy to talk to.


Dr. Vu took extra time and listened to all my concerns. I did not feel rushed.


I am very appreciative for how Dr. Vu administers patient care. I feel included in the process and it really feels like a partnership.


*Davis VU MD is very knowledgeable about whatever health related issues I may have. Hes a wonderful physician. Glad hes my doctor.


Not only was Dr Vu a great provider during appointments but he also answered various emails fully and patiently. Much appreciated.


Experience = GOOD; Dr. Vu is a very special person and an exceptional physician. My husband and I are both his patients - we followed him to WFB from his former practice at Maplewood Family Practice. If one is fortunate enough to find (rare) such a doctor as Dr. Vu, one should hold on for dear life!


I am so pleased with my provider. Happy to have him.


dr. vu seems a fine , personable intelligent physician that speaks clear, understandable very connected to me terms. consider myself lucky to have found such a likable person al physician.


I feel like conventional medicine and the Medical facility the Physician works for as well as insurance companies place unrealistic time restraints on Physicians for interviewing, examination, and intervention,as well as documentation, with the patient and their problem for that day. With that being said, I feel like Dr. Vu deals with these constraints better than most, and with a really great attitude.


Made me feel completely at ease, answered questions and asked me questions. I would recommend him to friends and family.


was very please with Dr Vu and his staff. Look forward to working with them on current health issue and any future issue. Very easy to understand and easy to talk to about health issue and concerns.


Dr. Vu is awesome! I have had some hard times lately. He has referred me to the proper people for the help that I need. He is always compassionate and shows concern!


I am very appreciative for the knowledge, care and concern shown by Dr. Vu. He noticed no labs had been done and he ordered them during my visit. He also thoroughly addressed my concerns. I was very pleased with my visit.


Dr. Vu has an awesome bedside manner, is very clear, listens, and I never feel rushed.


The visit I had with Dr. Vu was very pleasant. He showed interest and concern with my problem and was taking notes. When I seen him taking notes it assured me he wanted to make sure he was getting every detail while I was talking. This made me feel like he cared about what I had to say. He also showed concern and compassion with some medication I was taking. I would recommend this practice to anyone. Great staff and a pleasant atmosphere. Dr. Vu was great!! Thank you for providing patients with awesome care.


I was very pleased with the care and concern Dr. Vu presented during my visit. He actually listened to what I had to say and expressed concern. I feel much better and I am happy to have a new PCP who is knowledgeable about my health concerns.


the provider listened attentively and offered relevant, informed advice. I felt assured that I was in good hands.


This was my first appointment with Dr. Vu because I have been disappointed with my family doctor through Novant. Dr. Vu was recommended by a friend and I agree that he is very attentive. He listened to me and asked follow-up questions, and gave me 2 treatment options I could pursue including benefits and risks. I really appreciate the time he took time to get to know me - I didn't feel rushed at all. I will see him again and I made appointments for my husband and dad, too.


Dr. Vue was great. He listened to everything I had to say and responded in a way that showed me he listened and care. Expertise was obvious. Great visit and he gave me lots of help.


Initial visit -- but I believe Dr. Vu was very respectful of my situation and showed a willingness to work with me.


I have been under Dr V's care since my family and I moved here from NJ six years ago. It's truly been a pleasure having him as my physician. I never thought I would have the same level of care that I received from my previous doctor but Dr Vu has surpassed all my expectations. He is truly an asset to his profession.


Dr. Vu is very attentive and personable


Dr.Vu is Great!!!!


Dr. Vu took time to explain how Diabetes works in the body, explained the medications necessary. Very thorough. A doctor in the past told me I was borderline diabetic and gave me pills. Never mentioned diet, exercise, nothing. Dr. Vu took the time to explain everything and refer me to classes. He's great!


Dr Vu is an excellent listener, provides me with clear and understandable explanations to my questions and has never made me feel like he is rushing to get to the next patient.


Highly pleased and satisfied with care and educational medical counseling provided by this provider.


He not only does he listen to his patients with much compassion; he also takes what they have to say or think into consideration.


You never get a second chance to make a first impression and I am very impressed with Dr. Vu
