Christina Garretto, DO, is moving from Pacific to Washington.

Beginning May 5, Dr. Garretto will be a part of Mercy Clinic Family Medicine Washington, in Suite 208 at Mercy Medical Building North, 851 E. Fifth St. She will join Michael Stone, DO, and Tammy Simers, RN, FNP.

“I’ve enjoyed a rewarding career in Pacific, and I’ll miss the people I’ve come to know so well,” said Dr. Garretto. “I’m looking forward to stepping into a thriving practice that’s close to the hospital, where I can continue to treat families and watch them grow.”

Dr. Garretto is board certified by the American Board of Family Medicine. She comes from Mercy Clinic’s Pacific office, where she’s been practicing for more than five years. In Washington, she’s filling a spot being left open by Jennifer Stearnes, MD, who is moving out of state.

Stephanie Meyer, MD, Mark Rickmeyer, DO, and Craig Schmidt, MD, will continue seeing patients at Mercy Clinic Family Medicine at 307 Noonan Drive in Pacific.

Dr. Garretto attended medical school at Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed her residency at Mercy Hospital St. Louis.
