Accepting new patients

I was born in North Carolina, the second of four sons, and graduated from Hampton University in Hampton, Virginia, Howard University College of Medicine in Washington, DC, and completed my OB/Gyn Residency at LA County MLK Jr General Hospital in 1979. My father was a physician and I feel pride and gratitude in following in his footsteps. I began my OB/Gyn medical practice in 1979, served as consultant to the American Indian Free Clinic during the 1980's, served as Medical Director of the Maternity Center at Daniel Freeman Memorial Hospital from 1992-1996 and continue to enjoy both the obstetrical and gynecological aspects of private practice. I consider my experience, skills and patience to be my best qualities.

I can't give Dr. Noel enough stars!!! Immediately when I met him, I knew he was the Dr. for me/to deliver my baby. He was so kind and he made me feel at ease. You could tell how much he cared about his patients. His energy is like no other. He was born to do this! He is also over-qualified, skilled, hard-working, and the birth of my son wouldn't have been the same without him! I can't believe how much he does. I'm so grateful he was/is my doctor. Truly an amazing person. Thank you Dr. Noel!!!

Was recommended by a friend after dealing with a horrible obgyn and I can't tell you how amazing this man is. Always listen to our concerns and took all the time we needed even if his office was busy. Listen to all my concerns and requests and I never felt judged by him. Sometimes he did forget something's like my baby's gender and some details but it might be because he's really busy and is a getting a little old but nonetheless he is so caring.

Dr. Noel makes us very comfortable and concerned about me having the safest, healthy delivery. I would recommend Dr. Noel to everyone. Staff is really nice, never have to wait long and always made comfortable.

Dr. Noel is nice but has the worst communication skills I've ever seen. Good luck ever getting a return phone call or lab results. His reception staff is down right horrible. Rude, arrogant, uncaring, and lazy are just a few of the words that describe this front office. If you want to be insulted, treated like you don't matter or that your condition is of no importance, then you'll be happy here. If you want to be treated with respect, and feel safe with medical decisions, go elsewhere.
