Shannon Banks, MD, is board certified in family medicine.  

After completing her bachelor’s and master’s degree in chemistry at North Carolina A&T State University, she received her medical degree from East Carolina University. She then went on to complete her residency at Vidant Medical Center. It was here where she learned the true purpose of her calling – to help people understand and try to improve their overall health.

As an open and honest communicator, she strives to create a working plan for her patients that fit their lifestyle. She takes time to understand her patients and make them feel comfortable with speaking to her about their health concerns.  

In her spare time, she primarily enjoys spending her time traveling and eating! However, she does exercise the creativity of her mind by painting and working on art projects for those close to her.

Dr. Banks was personable and professional

Dr. Banks was wonderful and timely. I should be added that this was my first visit with her and it was virtual. Her nurse/assistant who I spoke with over the phone was just as great and helpful. My virutal visit was perfect. Dr. Banks listened, allowed me to talk, allowed me to explain, and didn't rush me off. She was clear, concise and as far as I am concern KNEW what she was talking about. I am so glad I found her and she will be my primary from here on out. Thank you Cone for hiring her.
