Obstetrician and gynecologist Dr. April A. Sandifer has joined North Oaks Physician Group in practice with Magnolia Obstetrics and Gynecology.

In addition to specializing in routine exams, family planning, contraception and pregnancy management, Sandifer is trained in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, including robotic and laparoscopic techniques.

“My goal is to educate, motivate and empower my patients to take control of their health,” Sandifer said. “It is important for each of my patients to understand her health condition so that we can work as a team to make treatment decisions that are right for her.”

Sandifer earned her medical degree from LSU School of Medicine in New Orleans. She completed an internship and residency through the LSU Health Care Services Division/Earl K. Long Medical Center and Woman’s Hospital in Baton Rouge, and served as administrative chief resident.
