Dr. Speaks is exemplary of what an excellent OB-GYN should be; she was unfailingly polite, knowledgeable, kind, and informative. I am thrilled to have her as my OB-GYN and I will choose her for all my future OB-GYN needs. I have zero complaints about Dr. Speaks or the nurses. My only concern is that it can be hard to get appointments between the doctor's full schedule and trying to schedule with a call the main Novant line (via phone number 336-765-5470) is difficult with long wait times. My shortest wait on hold was 20 minutes and I was told that the earliest appointment available for my time-sensitive issue was 3 months away; it would be nice to be able to schedule online through MyChart with Dr. Speaks (currently that isn't available for her) or to be able to call Novant's WomanCare in Kernersville directly.

This was my first visit with Dr.Speaks she was so friendly and knowledgeable. She wanted to know about me as a person which made my switch to a new provider less stressful.

Dr. Speaks was so very nice and welcoming. She made me feel so comfortable and heard. She gave me all the information needed and ensure that everything was clear before I left. I look forward to having another appointment with her.

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.
