Christina Tabit Evans, M.D., is Board-certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology. She is a member of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL), which encourage minimally-invasive gynecologic surgery whenever possible when surgery is required.
Dr. Evans enjoys traveling the world, and it was her experiences while traveling that propelled her toward women’s medicine, “Because of the lack of medical care for women globally, I ultimately decided to specialize in women’s health,” she says. “It is my passion and privilege to support women throughout their reproductive journeys.”
Dr. Evans was in residency when she experienced her own pregnancy loss before ultimately delivering a healthy baby boy. “This experience was another factor that shaped the meaningful and deep relationships I like to build with my patients,” she says. “I feel blessed to guide women through some of the most challenging and transformational times in their lives.”
Outside the clinic, it comes as no surprise that Dr. Evans continues to be heavily involved in global health, providing gynecologic care through her non-profit organization, New DAWN Africa. “I created my foundation in response to the dire need for maternal healthcare in Dandora, Kenya, Africa. And locally, I co-founded The Village to help new mothers get the postpartum care they need.”
Dr. Evans graduated from the University of Notre Dame with majors in Accounting and International Peace Studies. After graduating with her BBA, she enrolled in the University of California School of Medicine in Irvine, California, where she earned her medical degree. Dr. Evans noted, “Medical school only provides about four hours of training in nutrition. I think nutrition is so fundamental to one’s health that I co-created a nutrition curriculum that the school made available to the students as an 8-week elective course.”
Dr. Evans spent a summer in Panama while she was a medical student. “I won a grant and used it to set up medical clinics on the reservations of indigenous people in Panama and trained their midwives to use ultrasound for obstetric emergencies. This program continues today, and UC Irvine still sends medical students there every year.”
After school, Dr. Evans completed her residency at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center, and you can now find her at Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center Torrance.
‘I believe in treating the whole person because all aspects of the body are interconnected, not just the physical, but also the mental, emotional, and community that contributes to wellness. I’ve only been with Providence since January, but I have loved being here so far. The OBGYN group is wonderful! Their philosophy aligns with mine, and I feel good knowing that patients are in good hands, even if I’m not here. I always get great patient feedback about the care they have received, especially from the nurses.”
Dr. Evans was born in Illinois and moved to beautiful Southern California while in middle school. She has two young boys, and spending family time at the beach or other outdoor locations with her children is what she enjoys most, outside of her practice. She also loves yoga and Pilates.
