A native of Alexandria, Dr. Sandy Franz graduated from LSU with a degree in Microbiology before heading north to attend LSU Medical School in Shreveport. After earning her Medical Degree in 1997, she pursued her love of caring for children and completed a Pediatric Residency with Brown University at Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island.  After her residency, Dr. Franz returned home to Louisiana and has been practicing in Baton Rouge since.

Dr. Franz considers it a privilege to help families navigate the adventure of raising children. She recognizes that people are at their best when they are being parents. “My goal is to partner with families, to help them know what to expect, to set them up for success by anticipating needs, to reassure them in their new role and, best of all, to help them truly enjoy their children.  I am thankful for all that I have learned from parenting two boys with my husband of many years- true joy, deep love and humility.”

She is active in the pediatric community in Baton Rouge, participating in many quality initiatives centered around health care delivery to children. She enjoys working closely with the Children’s Hospital as well as the Pediatric Residency program, serving as a faculty member for many years. Dr. Franz and her family are active members of First Presbyterian Church in downtown Baton Rouge, participating in many community-wide service projects. Dr. Franz enjoys reading, being outdoors running and biking, and of course, spending time with her family. Dr. Franz is licensed in Louisiana and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. In the Fall of 2017, Dr. Franz joined The Baton Rouge Clinic’s family of physicians.  She is currently accepting new families.
