Christina Bates PNP
If Christina looks familiar to you then you are correct! After taking some time to be closer to her family in Houston, Christina has returned permanently to the clinic that always felt like home to her.
Christina is a Board Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner with nearly 20 years of experience in the field. She is highly experienced in general pediatrics but also spent time in Houston working with follow-up NICU patients who had severe chronic illness, as well as time with the adolescent population where she became interested in mental health. She will soon be sitting for boards to become a Pediatric Primary Care Mental Health Specialist. Christina is a lifelong learner and feels that is so important to not just know the best and most up-to-date way to treat common problems in children, but also to help parents navigate as a family unit in caring for the overall wellbeing of their children.
While born in the Great State of Texas, Christina had an extraordinary childhood and grew up in Saudi Arabia. She was also blessed and fortunate to have traveled all over the world! Christina still has the travel bug and loves exploring new places and learning about new cultures. She loves spending time outdoors, especially with her “Fur Children”. No matter what time of the year, you will find them doing whatever outdoor activity fits the weather.
Christina could not be happier to be working with Dr. Tomberlin and her amazing staff once again. She is looking forward to reconnecting with her previous patients and meeting new ones.
