Sandie Lourié, Concierge

I entered the medical arena twenty years ago in radiologic technology. I was a diagnostic technologist at Southern Ohio Medical Center, and the clinical instructor for the radiography program at Shawnee State University in Ohio for several years. A move to Charleston, South Carolina then led to a transition into the pediatric radiology department. While in Charleston, I met Dr. Lourie’ who was completing his fellowship in cardiology. We moved to Bradenton and settled into the community in 1995. Much of my time in the years since has been devoted to raising our two children. You may have seen me in the office assisting with various aspects of the practice. I will be personally available to our members to assist in any capacity that you may need. Think of me as your personal “Practice Concierge” making your experience with the practice enjoyable and hassle-free.
