Kristin Stevens, M.D., Ph.D., feels her most important role as a physician is to be a source of education, motivation and reassurance for her patients. “Dermatology is a very visual specialty, and patients tend to be more concerned about a condition that they or others can see, even though the condition itself may not be harmful,” she explains. “I enjoy taking the time to listen to my patients’ concerns and encourage them to take an active role in their own care.”
After graduating summa cum laude from the University of New Mexico with a degree in biochemistry, Dr. Stevens earned her medical degree from the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. She completed her internship at Baylor and her residency at the University of Texas at Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. Dr. Stevens is board certified in dermatology.
