About Andrea Journagin, MD

Since I was a small child I have wanted to take care of people. I chose to become an OBGYN because I love women's health and being able to help women through all stages of their life. My philosophy is that patients should be full partners in their health. That is why I make it a point to listen to patients and take the time to explain all of their medical options so they can make the best decisions for both them and their families. In my spare time I love to read, spend time with my dogs Chai and Pepper, travel and explore my new San Diego community.

I LOVE her! She has NEVER once made me feel rushed out or a burden to her schedule despite her literally cutting back on patient load. She is the sole reason why I keep returning to sharp rees stealy again - she has now turned TWO bad experiences around by being the doctor who saw me after said bad experiences. She takes her time to explain, explores reasons for why I feel the way I do, and is just so warm and inviting to especially in a time where I feel so vulnerable. THANK YOU to Dr Journagin for your time and expertise. I feel so much more confident in my reproductive health compared to my last visit.

I wanted to share my recent experience with Dr. Journagin, as it truly left a profound impact on me. I had the privilege of being under her care, and I must say that she embodies the essence of exceptional medical professionalism.Dr. Journagin's remarkable empathy and genuine care set her apart as a healthcare provider. Her approach is truly humanized, which makes all the difference, especially in times of distress. During my visit, circumstances took an unexpected turn, and I had to be rushed to the ER for an emergency procedure. Throughout this ordeal, Dr. Journagin's unwavering support and compassionate care shone through, providing me with a sense of reassurance and comfort during a challenging time.

Dr. Journagin provided me with the BEST medical experience I've had in my life. I felt heard. I felt seen. I didn't feel rushed. She was very thorough. She came in prepared. It was clear she read up on my recent Urgent Care visits, labs, weight as she didn't even look at my chart while talking to me like most doctors. She eased my fears on the treatment course. She asked me if I had questions. I was so blown away by the experience I told anyone that would listen. I could go on and on. She is an asset. I would leave if she left.
