Meet Dr. Joy'El

Board-Certified OB/GYN & Women's Health Expert

Hello, I'm Dr. Joy’El, your board-certified Gynecologist who uplifts women daily in her office. I am passionate about educating and empowering women to follow a path of self-love as they undergo the different stages of womanhood.  A path that emboldens women to value their mind, body and spirit as they embark on a wellness journey especially during the menopausal transition. 


As a 40-something-year-old woman, I share my experiences of perimenopausal symptoms with my patients to illustrate that their journey is not remote from my own.


I received my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Syracuse University then obtained her medical degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo.  I returned home to Maryland and completed my residency training in Obstetrics & Gynecology at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore.  I've been a practicing OB/GYN physician for 12 years in Annapolis, MD.  In the office, I am a cheerleader for my patients as I encourage them to take the appropriate steps to ensure desirable health and wellness by being proactive, well-informed in addition to practicing self-care.  Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with family as well as speaking at local events and churches about women’s health.  I am happily married with 3 children.
