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 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.

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

A provider’s star rating is based on a Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. In this survey, taken after an office visit, patients answer a series of standardized questions and have the opportunity to provide custom comments. Providence strips identifying information from comments so they can be shared without jeopardizing confidentiality or patient privacy.

Dr. Stevens, as a dermatology specialist, has found pre-cancerous and basal cell carcinomas that I didn't realize I had. She successfully has removed these for me....She is very personable and competent. I have complete faith in her...I'll never leave her practice!

I first saw Dr. Stevens about 5 years ago. She has identified and removed multiple types of skin cancer from my head & body. I believe she has extended my life by many years to come by preventing Melanoma to develop. She is truly awesome and Providence is lucky to have her and her expertise. She is 5 star all the way...

Dr. Stevens was attentive to my concerns and took it upon herself to examine my body in a much more thorough manner than anticipated. She found results that directed her to refer me to a particular specialist. She took the lead and set up all of the upcoming surgery etc.

Dr Stevens is so good that I recommend my daughter or granddaughter to change doctors. They have done so and are delighted as I am.

Dr. Stevens seems very competent. She is extremely efficient and businesslike, but also cordial.. She comes into the room quickly, takes care of my examination, writes up her report, and then has her assistant explain the details and directions in the report to me. The whole process took exactly ten minutes

Dr. Stevens and her staff are very professional, extremely proficient, and all staff appear to work well as a team. Dr. Stevens is very knowledgeable and has provided me superior care. She is very personable and able to explain technical terms in clear lay language. At times she seems rushed. Over my life I have had many dermatologists and I would rate her as the best in treating my conditions.

It took me 2 months from the time I originally requested an appt., probably because I was a new patient to Dr. Stevens.

Dr. Stevens seems extremely competent, but both visits she was very rushed. When I was speaking, she often was working on the computer. It was never asked, and she knows extremely little about my medical history outside of dermatology. When I see a doctor for the first time I would very much like to know that they care at least a little about getting to know me and how I feel about my past medical issues and care. I've had a melanoma in my past (with another doctor) which means the possibility of death is involved. A tiny bit of understanding about my emotions, psychology and past would be appropriate and greatly appreciated!

I thought the office staff at the front and back desks seemed stressed and not very friendly. The person who scheduled my appointment on the phone, however, was great. Her name was Kristin. Dr. Stevens and her nurse were also great!
