Sandy

Sandy has been with Dr. Soto’s office since the 1990s and in the medical field since high school. As our frame stylist, she enjoys having a great frame selection and the latest lens technology to help patients look and see great. She believes that sometimes creating a new look can be a group effort, and will often inspire patients to ask for a second opinion. Of course, Sandy is usually right. The most rewarding part of her job is sharing the patients’ excitement when they try on their cool new glasses. Sandy enjoys spending her free time with friends and her pets.
