Love Dr Speaks. I continue to see her even though I am fed up with Novant’s incorrect billing. I’d switch to awake if she ever leaves this practice. She is awesome n

Dr. Speaks is always so friendly, personable, and knowledgeable. I haven't seen her in over a year and she remembered me and my health goals. She always educates me and makes sure to ask all of the relevant questions. I always feel safe and well cared for in her hands. The staff at Women Care are always friendly and supportive. The nurses are sweet and efficient. I couldn't be more happy with my care.

This is my second time seeing this provider and hands done she is one of the best I have had. I would also like to say the team at this office is amazing. Everyone is friendly and answer all your questions and give the best instructions if you leave and think of something later how to get in touch with the provider. My experience is always positive.

When Jaleema Speaks, MD, was six years old, she asked her pediatrician to let her look at her blood under the microscope because of her fascination with science. Dr. Speaks turned that love of science into a career when she decided to attend medical school. Her desire to focus on women's care was encouraged by a family of strong women, like her grandmother who taught Lamaze and yoga from her screened in porch, exposing Dr. Speaks to pregnant women very early on. Dr. Speaks never gets bored of delivering babies and believes it's the best reason to be awake in the middle of the night. When she's not working or on call, Dr. Speaks enjoys spending time with her family. She married her high school sweetheart and they have a son and a daughter.
