Ellen SandovalEllen Sandoval, M.D.

Ellen grew up in Queens, New York, received my BA at Barnard College, MA atThe Institute of Human Nutrition at Columbia P&S, and MD at University of Miami School of Medicine. I returned to New York for my Pediatric Residency at Schneider Children’s Hospital at LIJMC.

I became a Pediatrician and learned to love grits down in rural Arkansas, then back to NY to spend five years at a local Hudson Valley Health center where I met Larry Baskind and Mary Ellen Stavitz. I have continued to work with them over the past 15 years (minus a sabbatical to enjoy the teenage years with my two lovely daughters), and I am honored to join them and the rest of the awesome staff down in Croton providing for children and their families. I enjoy everything else life has to offer with my family and black lab, Violet.
