Dr. Angela Jones, M.D., FACOG knew she wanted to be a physician from the age of four and would profess her passion for medicine to whomever would listen growing up in Columbus, OH. The daughter of a well-known pastor, Angela Jones is a “tiny, black, woman of color with a HUGE voice” as she describes herself, while her patients might say she is a brilliant doctor and witty “giggle-starter” with wildly contagious energy!
An award-winning and board-certified obstetrics and gynecology expert, Dr. Angela is also a wife and mother who has been featured in ABC, NBC, CBS, TheBump, Shape, Self, Care.com and more!
“Women are the foundation of the world – the pillars of society – and it is a privilege and an honor to care for ALL women; young and old. The breadth of patients that I see is truly amazing; judges, lawyers, physicians, students, artists, dancers (technically and not so technically trained), prostitutes, survivors of sex trafficking and more,”
– Dr. Angela
Dr. Angela completed her residency at Christiana Care Health System, where she served as chief resident and earned multiple awards for clinical excellence. She received her undergraduate degree from Centre College, in Danville, KY and her medical degree at The Medical College of Ohio. In addition, Dr. Angela received certification to perform Da Vinci Robotics during her tenure at Barnabas Health System – and remains one of a handful of female, board certified, robotic surgeons in NJ. She currently works for Healthy Woman in Monmouth County, NJ.
With the success of her Ask Dr. Angela Podcast on iTunes, the Ask Dr. Angela blog, and the Ask Dr. Angela website, a book was a natural next step, providing Dr. Angela another means for her to pursue her passion of empowering women via education and best practice and standard of medicine. Dr. Angela compiled a list of the questions her patients asked her on a daily basis and the answers she provided. Nothing remains uncovered in her new book.
“I am living my dream…not just my dream…but the dream of my aunts, uncles, parents, grandparents, and great grandparents who didn’t have anywhere close to the opportunities that I have been afforded as a tiny, African-American woman…..but you know what? I’m here because of them.”
