Dr. Speaks makes you feel like you are the only patient she needs to care for the entire day. Exceptionally kind and concerned. She explains options in a way that is easy to understand.

Dr Speaks is awesome and I see why so many patients like her. I am very pleased to have her as my new on/gyn. I was hesitant to find another after my previous provider left the city. But I am in good hands. She is attentive, knowledgeable, kind, patient, and cares. That's all I ask for.

Learn More
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.
