Dr. Franz's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Franz "Sandy Franz was born in Alexandria, Louisiana. After attending LSU for both undergraduate studies and medical school, she completed her pediatric training at Hasbro Children's Hospital with Brown University in 2000. She has been a primary care pediatrician in Baton Rouge since 2000, enjoying helping new families find their way on the parenting journey offering both 'mom' advice and 'doctor' advice. Since 2011, in addition to her private practice, she has enjoyed being involved in teaching for the OLOL pediatric residency program. She is also thankful for all that she has learned from parenting two boys (2000, 2002) with her husband of many years – profound joy, deep love and humility."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Franz "Do you wish there was a traveler's guide for raising children? Would it include best routes, insider favorites and places to avoid? Maybe what to pack and who to take with you? On this road called parenting, we all have routes as different as the children we are nurturing; there are many right answers! Most can agree that we want to enjoy the trip – no matter how long, strange, and beautiful it may be. Setting our children up for success means pointing them in the right direction, surrounding them with a team of experienced travelers, and providing them with a map showing safe places to find help. It matters who's on your team. It's OK to ask for help along the way. Your pediatrician should have excellent training and be adherent to the best that evidence- based medicine has to offer. Moreover, they should be generous and humbled from life experiences, able to comfort and grow alongside you on your journey. As a pediatrician, I am honored to help guide my families along their way."
