Jacqueline Sue Dela Merced, MD
Meet Dr. Dela Merced
Dr. Jacqueline Sue Dela Merced is a highly educated and experienced OB-GYN at La Follette OB-GYN & Aesthetics in Greenbrae, California. She provides treatment and services related to prenatal care, menopause, STD testing, and well woman care as well as minimally invasive surgeries and popular techniques such as MonaLisa Touch and SculpSure. She especially loves caring for teenagers and young adults, often speaking at high schools and college campuses to promote early awareness of safe sex practices and birth control options.
Dr. Dela Merced received her medical degree from New York Medical College. She completed her residency at White Memorial Medical Center in Southern California (WMMC), caring for the mostly under-served Hispanic female population of East Los Angeles. Dr. Dela Merced then pursued a degree in Physiologic Science from UCLA, where she was a charter member of Gamma Phi Beta Sorority and was named to the Mortar Board National College Senior Honor Society. She took a year off after graduation to teach for Princeton Review and to assist Dr. Thomas Rosanelli, a surgeon in San Francisco, in order to hone her surgical skills.
Dr. Dela Merced grew up in South San Francisco, California. Her mother was a nurse who worked days as a visiting nurse and nights in the recovery room at San Francisco General. Her father was an orderly at Laguna Honda Hospital. She credits both of her parents for stressing education and for instilling in her not only an interest in the art of healing but also an interest in ‘the arts’ overall. When she is not helping her many patients, she finds great joy in visiting museums, going to the ballet, musical theater, and the symphony. In her spare time, Dr. Dela Merced loves to create handmade greeting cards and decorations—she even has her own crafting blog. Since moving back to the Bay Area, she has discovered the wonderful world of dahlias and gardening and is even a member of the San Francisco Dahlia Society. She is glad to be back “home,” where she can root for her beloved SF Giants and 49ers. An avid traveler and photographer, she and her husband seek adventures, near and far, whenever possible.Schedule Now
