Dr Speaks was terrific. She suggested a plan I had not thought of due to my family history.

This was my first visit with Dr. Speaks. She made me feel so comfortable and welcomed. She took the time to learn and review my medical history with me. She was very personable and knowledgeable. She was amazing! I will tell all my lady friends about her and Woman Care Kernersville!

From the front desk receptionists to the medical assistant to the doctor, I was treated with such courtesy and kindness. I never felt rushed and I felt closely listened to. Doctor Speaks is unlike any physician I’ve ever had. She was gentle, attentive, inquisitive, thoughtful, and incredibly kind and caring. It was truly a wonderful experience.

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.
