“We all have our own stories, and hearing the stories of my patients makes every day feel challenging and interesting. I strive to honor my patients’ stories by taking time to understand what is happening, responding to their concerns and explaining things in a way that is understandable. I like to make sure my patients always understand they have a choice, and I enjoy helping create a plan that feels good to them.”
Christina has a special interest in contraception and making sure patients have a birth control method that works for them. She especially enjoys caring for teens and menopausal patients.
