Hello there. My name is Tori Johnston. I am a Board-Certified Family Nurse Practitioner. I joined Premier Pediatrics in December 2021 and I am very excited to be a member of Dr. Chaikin’s team. A little bit of me. I am a native of East Texas. My husband, Nathan, and I moved to Longview in 2008 with our 2 children. Since that time, our 2 oldest have graduated and now have families of their own. We are proud grandparents of 4 wonderful kiddos ages 9 months to 6 years. In 2019, Nathan and I adopted our now 3-year-old daughter. We definitely have a full and busy life. As for my nursing career, I have been a nurse for over 20 years. Over the years I have worked in a variety of settings including home health, outpatient clinics and as an inpatient nurse. In 2019, I earned my Master degree in nursing from University of Texas at Tyler in 2019. After receiving my degree and adopting my daughter, I found myself being drawn to pediatrics. I have always loved children and enjoy watching them learn and grow. Joining Premier Pediatrics has been the best decision for me. I am very passionate about providing the very best care to the patients I serve. I look forward to meeting you all and gaining your trust as a provider.
