They got married and now reside in New Jersey together with their daughter and two dogs.

She would like to be a generalist Ob/Gyn that has an emphasis on minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.
Lauren Frye, D.O.
Lauren grew up in the area and despite enjoying travel to far off places, decided to return home after completing school at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Erie, PA.

She did her undergrad work at West Chester University then attended Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. She also earned her M.B.A. at Saint Joseph’s University.
Ruby Minhas, M.D.
Ruby's goal as a physician in obstetrics and gynecology is to provide the highest caliber of care to her patients. She was drawn to the field due to the wide spectrum on which women's health care is provided. The continuity of care that comes along with the field was a strong attraction for her. She enjoys the operating room and has a strong interest in obstetrics and high risk pregnancies along with global health care accessibility. Ruby chose Crozer Chester as her place of training due to the opportunity to work for an under serviced population. Ruby is the oldest of 3 children and grew up in Toronto, Canada. She enjoys traveling and is always planning her next trip. She also enjoys cooking, trying new restaurants in the Philly area, running, and spending time with family and friends.
Jonelle Samuel, M.D.
Born and raised in Prince George's County, MD, Jonelle is the oldest of 4 siblings. She is also of Grenadian descent. Her interests include traveling the world; dancing, dancing and more dancing; reading fiction books (I love James Patterson!); and spending time with family and close friends. She first became interested in Women's Health after working at the National Institutes of Health (NICHD/Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility) performing clinical research in Primary Ovarian Insufficiency a year after attending Morgan State University in Baltimore. Then, when she attended medical school at the mecca Howard University, her interest in Women's Health and particularly Ob/Gyn was strengthened. Some of her medical interests include adolescents/teens and contraception/reproductive health. Why Crozer? "Well, when I interviewed here, I was amazed at the breadth of diversity in the patient population and among the residents. Also, it was in a suburban community setting, right outside of Philadelphia. The staff at Crozer are very friendly and down-to-earth, an added bonus."
