About Kathryn C. Siems, MS, PA-C

  • Kate Siems grew up in Lindale, a small town in East Texas. She had the opportunity to spend two years of her career working in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, which she says “was a life changing experience,” and also where she met her husband! Kate loves hiking and camping – anything outdoors – with her family and friends, spending time with her son and creating new memories. In addition, she loves to travel and explore new places and cultures. Her favorite area locales are the greenbelt trails.

I initially went into medicine because I love working with people, and I found it fascinating. I consider it a huge honor to walk alongside people as they navigate their various health challenges. I want to help alleviate both the emotional and physical suffering that many dermatologic conditions can cause. I place a great deal of importance on making sure patients feel cared for, as well as ensuring they receive excellent medical care. Each patient should leave an appointment with me feeling valued and heard, as well as being clear on their diagnosis and treatment plan.
