Pediatrician Finds Her Voice and People Are Listening

In addition to being a pediatrician on the medical staff at Houston Northwest Medical Center, Sherri Sandifer, M.D., is also a pianist, flutist, vocalist and songwriter. Her debut CD titled loverevolution was produced by Grammy winner Dru Castro. She describes the album as “a collection of soulful songs that appeal to anyone from age five to 85.”

Dr. Sandifer’s interest in music started at a young age. She was raised in a musical family with her mother singing in the church choir and her father playing jazz piano. Dr. Sandifer has been writing songs for as long as she can remember and was classically trained in piano and flute. She started singing in college and joined an a capella group at Yale called Shades. But her musical aspirations were put on hold during medical school and as she worked to establish her medical career.

Today, Dr. Sandifer has been able to strike a balance between medicine and
music. She says that working on the album has actually made her a happier pediatrician. And her patients certainly enjoy hearing her hum a tune that
cheers them up whenever she enters an exam room.

“My music has been a great emotional release that is good for my brain and good for my soul,” says Dr. Sandifer. “I strive to perform songs that have lyrical substance, that resonate with people’s experiences, and that are memorable.”

In addition to releasing and promoting her debut R&B/soul album of original songs, Dr. Sandifer performs at venues in the greater Houston area. Pediatrician Finds Her Voice and People Are Listening Hospitalist team members will host a one-year anniversary meet and greet on Tuesday, October 5 from 5:30 to 7:30pm in the Atrium boardroom. Come meet the doctors and see how these experienced pediatricians can help you care for your patients.
