Mindy L. Calandro, MD, FAAP
Caring for children, especially newborns, is at the heart of why Dr. Mindy L. Calandro is in the practice of Pediatric Medicine. Her goal as a pediatrician is to partner with parents to help each child lead a happy and healthy life and to reach their full potential.
Hailing from her home town of New Orleans, Dr. Calandro for a time embraced the great state of Texas, having earned her B.S. from Texas A&M in 2004 and her M.D. from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston in 2007. Moving further north in Texas, she performed her Pediatric residency at Children’s Medical Center in Dallas, completing her program in 2010. She also served as Pediatric Chief Resident at Children’s Medical Center from 2010-11 and then entered into a private pediatric practice in a suburb of Dallas for two years. Dr. Calandro then returned to her home state of Louisiana and joined The Baton Rouge Clinic in the fall of 2013.
Holding dual licenses in the states of Louisiana and Texas, Dr. Calandro is board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. She is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Louisiana Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Having made Baton Rouge home for herself, her husband, and their three children, when not practicing medicine, Dr. Mindy L. Calandro most enjoys being with her family, traveling and no surprise for a Louisianian, cooking.
