Williamsburg, VA Gastroenterologist
Frances J. Jones, MD, FACG, earned her undergraduate degree in Pre-Medical Studies from Hawaii Pacific University, graduating magna cum laude. She then went on to earn her Doctor of Medicine from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, South Carolina. She completed her residency training through Dwight D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center in Fort Gordon, Georgia. She received further training from the San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium, completing a fellowship in gastroenterology and hepatology.
Dr. Jones is board certified in Gastroenterology by the American Board of Internal Medicine. She is also a Fellow of the American College of Gastroenterology.
With her prior military background, Dr. Jones has acquired extensive experience working in the field of gastroenterology. From 2008 to 2019 she worked with various gastroenterology staff across the country. In her most recent assignment, she served as a gastroenterologist and professor at Langley Hospital, where she finally retired in 2019. After 20 years of dedicated service to the United States Air Force, Dr. Jones joins TPMG Digestive Disease Center of Virginia in Williamsburg. In August of 2019, she joins managing physician Dr. Richard J. Hartle and physician assistant Stephen Hawkins.
With a passion for science and a desire to help others, she found the field of medicine to be a natural fit. Dr. Jones specializes in the evaluation, diagnosis, and management of all aspects of gastrointestinal and liver diseases. She treats patients with acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and eosinophilic esophagitis. As a gastroenterologist, Dr. Jones has a special interest in cancer screening and prevention, endoscopic therapeutics such as esophageal dilation and large polyp removal. She has specialized training in gastrointestinal motility, Crohn’s Disease, and Ulcerative Colitis, and endoscopic mucosal resection and polypectomy.
Dr. Jones believes patient care starts with a solid foundation based upon open communication and transparency. This philosophy has given her the ability to build long-term relationships with her patients and she hopes to continue this model as she transitions into the civilian world.
Dr. Jones has been published in several peer-reviewed journals and has received numerous awards and recognitions for her work in gastroenterology. She enjoys teaching whenever given the opportunity and has previously served as Chief of Motility and as an Associate Professor at University Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) and Brooke Army Medical School.
Outside of the office, Dr. Jones enjoys spending time with her husband and two children fishing and boating on the Chesapeake Bay. As a Virginia native, she looks forward to being back home and exploring more of the rich culture and history of the Hampton Roads area.
