Jerrel Emery, M.D. - Our founder and Medical Director

Our founder and Medical Director, Jerrel Emery, M.D., has a long history in San Diego's East County. After growing up in Temecula, CA, Dr. Emery lived a short time in San Bernardino while attending Loma Linda University Medical School. After earning his degree, he completed an internship and a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at St. Joseph's Hospital in Houston, Texas. Education and training completed, Dr. Emery returned to California to join the Grossmont OBGYN Medical Group, where he remained for several years.
In recent years, Dr. Emery has transitioned into the area of aesthetic medicine. He served as the Medical Director for 10 California locations for American Laser Skincare, overseeing patient care and personally treating patients with injectibles like Botox and soft tissue fillers. In 2015, he opened the first location for Dr. J's Elegant Reflections Med Spa.
Dr. Emery has designed our aesthetic center to offer anti-aging and skin enhancing treatments such as injectibles and Stage IV laser procedures, performed by an extensively trained clinician. Laser treatments are used for pigment correction, hair removal, and skin tightening. His patients may also choose to achieve fitness goals with personalized weight loss management that includes Natural Herbal Supplements and medications, or age management with exercise, nutrition, and Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Dr. Emery is in the process of achieving board-certification in anti-aging and regenerative medicine to combine with his wealth of experience in aesthetic medicine. This certification will complement his attention to individual patients and his philosophy that the outer reflection is a testament to inner health and vitality.
Dr. Emery lives just north of San Diego and enjoys time with his wife of 25 years, Leslie, their six children, and three grandsons.
