What Our Patients Have To Say

Patient Testimonials

Dr. Dela Merced is friendly, knowledgeable, and has a calming demeanor. When I inquired about prenatal vitamins during this visit, she provided me with two different samples and explained the virtues of each. My family and I appreciate Dr. Dela Merced as an OB and as a person.*

- Emily C.

Very sweet and helpful with all of my questions!*

- Alana C.

Two thumbs up and all the stars from me! I am taking treatment from Dr. Dela Merced and she's a very considerate, friendly, nice doctor. I trust her and I talk to her about all the queries. she always gives me peace of mind by providing satisfactory answers; I think she is the best!*

- Pamela P.

Everyone is always knowledgeable and friendly. Dr. L. is amazing - so much energy. I always leave in awe.*

- Nadine T.

I appreciate the online check in option and the ability to record questions in advance. In anticipation of this visit, I posed a question about a new blood test predictive of preterm labor. Jackie had an answer at the ready when we met this afternoon. As my husband and I left the office, we were greeted by Lizellen. Her demeanor is always so positive and supportive. We are fortunate to have access to both doctors!*

Sweet, kind, and makes you feel very comfortable! Wonderful at her job!*

- Andrea S.

Always leave the office feeling so well taken care of and understood.*

- Linda B.

Dr. Dela Merced delivered our little boy and we could not be more impressed with our experience. Assuming she would come in towards the end to "catch" the baby, she was there the entire time, once it was decided it was time to push. Prior to that she would come in to check in on me, stay as long as needed and gave us our space as well. She even helped with a back massage during a long contraction, when my husband was napping :) Both my husband and I were so impressed with our experience and felt that we were in the best of hands and stayed very calm, because of Dr. Dela Merced's energy and care for all three of us. SO grateful for help in delivering our little boy.*

- Britney G.

Dr follette is amazing, her staff made it easy to come in last minute and were super nice !*

- Maura M.

Jackie was attentive and thorough as always. The office staff was friendly. I appreciate the technological tools to help me manage and confirm appointments as well as access visitation notes. It seems somewhat incongruent then when office staff/nurses ask me to fill out paper copies of forms or inquire repeatedly about the date of my last period. At this last visit, I was asked to fill out a form for which, I think, the focus was general health history. It also asked about pregnancy history which Jackie knows, I'm sure is chronicled, and I'd prefer not to rehash when all that's really needed is whether I have a history of asthma or hypertension. It would be great if the info from those forms could be added to the tech tool and I could fill it out in advance. In the interim, maybe the staff could cross out the redundant information.*

- Emily C.

Focused, customized, highest-quality knowledgeable attention. She is totally "there" for her patients! Especially valuable for aging women who need trusted resources. The path for Boomer and younger women is uncharted for us - as we have many options - and we need trusted, leading-edge partners, working on the frontlines (like Lizellen) in our care - and exploration.*

Dr Jackie delivered our first child. She was gracious, kind and so supportive over what turned into a 56hr labor! Anyone that can hold steady for that long and still be alert enough to perform the way she did delivering our daughter safely is a MIRACLE worker. We adore Dr Jackie and hope that she will be there to deliver our second child. Seeing Dr Jackie, Dr LaFollette and the entire team for checkups is like coming home to family. Thank you all for all that you do!*

- Sandraline C.

Dr. La Follette is my best doctor. I am a 66 year old woman, and have lived in Marin County for the last 7 years. Medically speaking, I have been around the block. I have had a myriad of medical experiences because of my age. Of all the doctors I have known in my lifetime, she is one of the top two doctors I've had. The other doctor was my personal physician for 25 years in West Los Angles (who happened to saved my life twice !). Dr. La Follette is smart, well educated, deeply experienced, and able to improvise on a dime when called for. She really , really knows her stuff. She also keeps herself and her patients up to date and current with the latest medical procedures and improvements. She has helped me stay healthy and confident, and I am grateful for the peace of mind that has given me. She is also a super nice, personable, funny, and a charming person to talk to. I always look forward to her appointments. You'd be lucky to get a space left, if she has one.*

- Nicole L.

Look no further, Dr. Lizellen La Follette and Dr. Jaqueline Dela Merced are quite simply, the best!*

- Abbie R.

- Ruth R.

Dr. Dela Merced is fantastic. She actively listens to what you have to say and actually hears what you tell her. She has helped me to take action on a problem that has been causing me severe pain for years. It feels wonderful to do something active about it and her understanding was incredibly valuable.*

- Sophie M.

I was very stressed when I came in, and Dr. Dela Merced helped to calm me through her professional manner. I have been reluctant to get a pessary, but knew it was now time. We tried several, and it was for me a VERY painful process. Dr. Dela Merced was understanding of my extreme sensitivity and kept the mood light, yet without dismissing my feelings. We were finally able to find a size that appears to fit with only minimal discomfort (probably just due to my need to get used to it). I was pleased with the level of understanding that I received, as my discomfort was very real and very distressing. (I would prefer this NOT be posted at all, or if it IS posted, please use just C.C. to sign it.)*

- Carol C.

- Colene A.

I was on an unexpected trip from Hawaii and needed a follow up. I located Dr. dela Merced through Yelp. The first asset was that they were open on Saturdays! The front office staff was welcoming and easy to work with on billing info, portal information and other concerns being a new patient. Paper work was straightforward and easy to follow. Doctor's nurse was a great. She was interactive and happy. What made it best was that I was able to have a follow up ultrasound and from that a biopsy done right there that same day. No running around to an diagnostic center. Dr. Dela Merced explain procedure well and answered all my concerns. I felt reassured by the professional standards given. You can tell that the entire staff puts their investments into the "Patient" and not the appearance of the pratice. I will continue to use Dr. Dela Merced for all my future Gyn needs.*

Dr. La Follette actively listens to and answers all of my questions regarding my overall health. She cares about me as a person and is totally genuine in that regard.
