Sandra Rodriguez, Office Manager
I have worked with Dr. Tandon for 16 years. My main job is to help patients with questions about anything from appointments to billing and insurance. Working with kids is a passion of mine and have enjoyed seeing many of our patients learn and grow. When I am not at work, I love spending time with my kids and taking them to play softball and baseball.

Araceli Garcia, Nurse
I recently started working for Dr. Tandon. Dr. Tandon has been my son's prediatrician for the past 13 years. After many years of working odd jobs, I decided to go back to school and become a nurse because I was inspired by how much the nurses in Dr. Tandon's office enjoyed their work, did their best to privide a supportive environment for my son, and make sure my family had a safe, healthy and happy lifestyle.
