Biography & Education

Biography
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 a Ph.D. in immunology before completing her medical degree cum laude at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. Following her internship year at Baylor, she completed her dermatology residency at the University of Texas at Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, serving as chief resident during her final year.
 
Dr. Stevens is board certified in dermatology. She joined Providence Medical Group in 2003 and has been the Medical Director of PMG Dermatology since 2007. She is active in the local dermatology community, participating regularly in a journal club with her peers. She has served as both Secretary-Treasurer and President of the Oregon Dermatology Society, and volunteers as a clinical assistant professor at the Oregon Health & Science University Department of Dermatology.
 
Dr. Stevens has been listed as one of the Top Doctors in Dermatology by Portland Monthly magazine and has appeared on AM Northwest and other local news programs to talk about skin cancer, sun safety and skin care.
 
In her free time, Dr. Stevens enjoys running, swimming, gardening, reading and travel. She lives with her husband, daughter and son, as well as four tuxedo cats and a Greater Swiss Mountain dog. She is an active participant in the National Charity League Oregon Rose chapter and works regularly with several local non-profit philanthropies throughout the Portland area.

Kristin is great because she speaks to the patient warmly and addresses their concerns. I've seen dermatologists elsewhere who are vain and talk about skin topics besides why I was there for.

My Dermatologist was on vacation. Dr. Stevens stepped in to help with my care. She was very professional and congenial. I am due to return for more proceedures and look forward to her care. A follow-up phone call by an office staff member was regarding my positive diagnosis of skin cancer. The caller was reassuring and informative. She also exihibited concern for my diagnosis.
