About Kristin Rygg
A board-certified physician assistant, Kristin began practicing internal medicine in 2008 before specializing in dermatology. She believes the skin is not only the earliest marker of many internal diseases, but is also an indicator of a person’s overall health and well-being and a key to self-confidence.
Kristin is trained to diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions of the skin, hair, and nails. Recognizing the importance of early cancer detection, she performs full skin exams, biopsies and surgically removes precancerous, cancerous, and benign growths and lesions. Kristin also performs cosmetic procedures including sclerotherapy, Botox, chemical peels, and dermal fillers that diminish wrinkles and brighten skin.
Kristin graduated with honors from the University of Florida College of Medicine, where she earned her master’s degree in physician assistant studies. She also earned bachelors’ degrees in biology and physiology, both with honors, from the University of Minnesota.
Kristin is a Director at Large and Co-Chair of the Membership Committee for the Florida Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants and is also a member of the National Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants.
