PROVIDERS
Dr. Randy Naidoo, M.D., FAAP, ABIHM
Chief Executive Officer, Owner

Dr. Naidoo wishes that his bio was short, but that would be a disservice to all that have helped him along the way. His parents made the journey from South Africa in 1971 to create more opportunities for themselves at the time and for their children later. His mother chose Dallas instead of Toronto.

Born at Presby Dallas in 1976, Dr. Naidoo has seen the Dallas-Fort Worth area change from primarily a big city with several suburban and rural communities to a major suburban metropolis that has connected much of Dallas and Fort Worth to make it a population of millions where boundaries are no longer a concern.


Dr. Rahima Afroza, M.D.


Dr. Rahima Afroza came to the United States in 2006 from Bangladesh and had a successful journey in the path of becoming a foreign medical graduate. She completed her pediatric residency at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Amarillo, TX. Being recognized as one of the best residents, she earned the Dean's Award for the ‘Outstanding Intern’ in 2010-2011.

During her residency, Dr. Afroza met Dr. Ralph Habersang, a pioneer in establishing a proper PICU in Amarillo, TX, as well as a primary care provider for almost all of the special needs children in the Texas panhandle area. He changed her vision about the future of general pediatrics and what a physician represents. She was taught to believe that a general practitioner should be comfortable handling and treating a variety of complex disorders. She believes that it is not necessary to have ten different referrals for ten differing symptoms.


Christie Potter, MS, RN, CPNP
Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer

Christie was born in Las Cruces, NM in 1978. Her parents moved to Oklahoma when she was just two years old. Christie grew up just outside of Tulsa, Oklahoma in the small town of Owasso. In her younger years, Christie’s passion for children was always apparent, from volunteering at church in the children’s ministries to being the neighborhood babysitter and frequently being the nanny to her cousins when she was as young as 12 years old.


Chandra Garvey, MS, RN, CPNP


Chandra was born in Chicago, IL and lived in the Midwest until she was in the fifth grade. Texas has been her home ever since. She has had a love for children all of her life. Being the eldest sister of three, she grew up knowing what it was like to care for younger children. As a teenager, babysitting was one of her favorite activities. One family that she frequently babysat for joked that they paid her college tuition. She also coached a summer swim team through college while lifeguarding and teaching youngsters how to swim.

During the latter part of high school, she decided that the medical field was for her. Considering both physical therapy and nursing as she entered college, nursing quickly won out and she entered and graduated from Texas Woman’s University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing and a minor in Biology. While finishing her nursing degree, she worked at Children’s Medical Center in the PICU as a student. Upon graduation, she accepted an internship there and continued to work in that environment for the following six years. Those six years were filled with a lot of hard work, but the knowledge and experience gained there was priceless. Many families touched her life in so many special ways.

In 1997, Chandra graduated from Texas Woman’s University with a Master’s Degree in Nursing along with her Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Degree. She is certified by the Pediatric Nursing Certificate Board and is a Fellow in the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Associates and Practitioners. She has practiced in several private practice settings in the area as well as in the acute care setting. Her special interest is in newborn care and helping parents adjust to life with an infant, but she enjoys all aspects of pediatric care. She is excited to be able to practice her role as a Nurse Practitioner in an environment that supports integrative care and a team approach with parents and families. It is a blessing to be a part of Shine Pediatrics!

Chandra lives in Plano with her husband, John, and their three daughters that keep them very busy. She loves running, scrapbooking, and reading, but her favorite pastime is spending time with her family. Often she can be seen volunteering at their church or at the schools that her girls attend.


Tiffany Hamilton, MSN APRN FNP-C


Tiffany grew up in Rowlett, Texas. As a teenager, she babysat frequently and volunteered her time working with special needs kids at Rowlett High School. During her senior year, she took a clinical rotation class and was able to shadow nurses at Lake Pointe Hospital to learn firsthand what it meant to be a nurse. While many of her classmates decided that nursing was not for them, this experience only fueled Tiffany’s aspiration to become a nurse. 

She graduated from Rowlett High school in 2000, and that fall she began her journey into the nursing profession. She graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Baylor University in 2005. After graduation, she moved to Scottsdale, AZ. She began her nursing career at Banner Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix, AZ, where she worked in the Trauma ICU and ER. In 2007, she and her husband moved to the beautiful island of Oahu where she accepted a job in a combined Adult and Pediatric ICU at Tripler Army Medical Center. During her time at Tripler, she helped to develop the Rapid Response Team, created and taught the neurological course for the hospital nursing staff and was on the air evacuation transport team. Her last 2 years at Tripler were spent working in the pediatric ICU, neonatal ICU and the pediatric sedation center. 

She graduated from the University of Hawai’i at Manoa with her Master in Science    while completing the Family Nurse Practitioner Program. Tiffany is a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. She has always had a passion for working with underserved communities, which lead her to work at Kalihi Palama Health Center in Kalihi, Hawai’i. There she worked in adult medicine, pediatrics and women’s health care providing holistic care to a very complex and diverse population. It was during this time that she developed a true appreciation for homeopathic and herbal healing, as many of her patients valued this type of health care approach. 

After having her first daughter in 2009 and facing opposition in the workplace to breastfeed, she made it her mission to bring attention to the health benefits that are derived from breastfeeding for both mom and baby. In 2011, she and four other women wrote and proposed amendments to the already written legislation that would better protect and provide more rights to breastfeeding moms in the workplace. She also became a board member of the Breastfeeding Hawai’i Coalition, continued to advocate for breastfeeding rights and provided education through community outreach. In August 2013, she was honored to be part of a small group of women who sat in Governor Neil Abercrombie’s suite while he signed into legislation the very bill (S.B. 532) that she had helped to write. 

Tiffany was married in April 2005 to her husband and best friend. They first met as neighborhood kids when she was 7 years old and were best friends growing up. They have been blessed with 2 beautiful daughters. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family, going to the beach (which she will miss now that she is in Texas), hiking, watching movies, trying new foods, reading, yoga, hanging out with friends and shopping. 

After 7 amazing years living on the beautiful island of Oahu, Tiffany and her husband decided to move back to their roots in Texas. She is excited to be back in the community in which she was raised and where she found her passion to devote her life to providing care to others.
