Lizellen La Follette, MD, is a practice that works collaboratively with a wide range of healthcare providers to enhance the childbirth experience and offer clarity to patients about physical events as they progress through life. The La Follette team of providers is dedicated to helping women of all ages greet health opportunities and challenges with the most current information possible. The two physicians work closely with two certified nurse midwives, Jeanne Marie Crowe and Lisa dela Fuente, to shape a supportive, hands-on approach to patients giving birth, and they help women understand and manage the stages of life from puberty, through menopause, and beyond.
“Emily Binkley brings a wealth of important experience to our practice,” said Dr. Lizellen La Follette. “We emphasize helping each patient make her life’s journey via thoughtful decisions that she makes herself – which we support by sharing our knowledge and experience. Emily has worked with women from all walks of life in both urban and rural settings. Her perspective will strengthen our mission to make the most out of womanhood.”
“Joining Dr. La Follette and her team is a big milestone,” said Dr. Emily Binkley. “The reputation of the practice is excellent, nationwide, and the energy of each person in the practice has created a terrific environment for patients. I’m happy to be here.”
Dr. Binkley joins the practice at a time when the increase in Caesarean births is receiving national attention, further solidifying the La Follette practice’s resolve to foster safe, supported births in the most holistic way possible.
