Lizellen La Follette, MD

Lizellen La Follette, MD, is a board-certified OB-GYN in private practice in Greenbrae, California. She offers women at all stages in life personalized, comprehensive health care, including both low & high-risk obstetric services, well-woman exams, STD testing, birth control, menopause support, minimally invasive surgeries, and in-office laser procedures such as MonaLisa Touch and Sculpsure.

Educated at Harvard and Case Western Reserve, Dr. La Follette’s professional path includes as a young adult, doing third-world country advisory work in debt management and international finance while working at Lehman Brothers. She established her own healthcare practice in 2004 strongly believing all women are on an individual journey in life—and should always receive nurturing, personalized health care as well as access to timely decision-making medical information throughout their lives. Of note, she continues to welcome new patients and holds complimentary patient learning events at her practice once a month.

Beginning in 2000, Dr. La Follette served as a physician member of First Pregnancy and Delivery (FPAD)—now called OB Quality—a Sutter Health initiative to continue to improve first pregnancy outcomes for mother and infant. At Marin General Hospital in 2002, she assisted in establishing the first Weekly Breast Cancer Conference. Last year she had the honor of serving as medical advisor to Clue, a German-based startup developing a state-of-the-art menstrual tracker app. Currently, Dr. La Follette is a member of the ACOG Speakers Bureau, helping to roll out their new toolkit, ‘Support Vaginal Birth and Reduce Primary Cesareans“. She is also an advisor to the March of Dimes and spoke at their 2016 statewide Annual Birth Conference.

A US citizen who went to grammar school in Paris, Dr. La Follette is bilingual in French and speaks some Swedish, German, and Spanish. She was recently honored in France for her visionary global work in women’s healthcare, and for her support of the comprehensive ‘Etincelle Montpellier Cancer Retreat Model’ which she is helping to bring to the US.

Outside of her practice, she enjoys time with her husband Peter, and two daughters Eloise and Lucy. She also enjoys running with her dog Nellie in the Marin Headlands and traveling–especially back to Paris!
