- It's Our 20th Year Anniversary!
In honor of our 20th year anniversary, Caduceus is highlighting employees each month that have been with our group since its inception.
Marcy Toner , Senior VP of Finance
Marcy has been working for Caduceus since our inception in 1999. She was the VP of Operations for the Yorba Linda Family Practice office for 16 years from 1998 – 2014 and then transferred to the position of Senior VP of Finance in 2014 when the CFO retired.
Previous to that position, She worked directly with CMO Dr. DeNicola, Dr. Hall, Dr. May, and Dr. Ponzio since 1983 at Yorba Linda Family Physicians nights and weekends while she was attending Cal State Fullerton to get her BA in Business Administration.
Marcy is always cheerful and upbeat and is such a company advocate as she has spent more than 35 years working with the same group of people; they are her family!
Martha Rodriguez, Senior Utilization Manager
Martha started with Caduceus at our original location in Tustin. She moved to our current Yorba Linda offices in the Packing House Square and managed front office duties for primary care, specialty, behavioral health, and ancillary services.
Martha relocated across the parking lot to our administrative business offices to assume a managerial role almost fifteen years ago.
On behalf of the Caduceus family Martha, thanks sincerely for all you do!

- Message from our CMO
We wanted to bring to to the attention to our patients some concerning recent online activity in the "anti-vaccination" community attempting to disparage local pediatric practices. After diligent research our team has confirmed that several online reviews/posts about Caduceus were neither existing patients nor family members of patients. We believe these to be a fictitious posts. Caduceus 4 Kids and all of our pediatric providers follow all AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) and CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) guidelines and pediatric immunization schedules.
The maximum number of pediatric vaccinations that would be given concurrently is four and follows the above CDC and AAP recommendations. Claims that there were as many as 12 given to one our pediatric patients is not only false but also irresponsible and defamatory. These posts support other online research discovered by our team and feedback from other local pediatric offices that also have been subjected to baseless and irresponsible reviews and claims from these individuals with their own agendas. We kindly ask you ignore these reviews and if you discover any posted on other sites/platforms please contact patient support at [email protected]
