About Dr. Kristen Williams, MD
We are excited to introduce our newest practitioner, Dr. Williams to our practice. She sees patients on Wednesdays and Thursdays in our Lutz location for medical weight loss and aesthetic services, including Botox, MINT Thread Lifts and Sculptra fillers. She graduated medical school in 2010 from Florida State University, but her interest in anti-aging medicine was seeded a long time before that.

After she finished her medical degree, she completed a residency program in 2014 at the University of Florida Shands Hospital in Jacksonville, FL. She approaches medicine from a patient-centric prospective and some of the qualities patients appreciate most about her is her compassion, encouragement and listening skills. Since 2014, Dr. Williams has focused more on anti-aging medicine, receiving certifications in aesthetic medicine, including Botox, Sculptra facial fillers and MINT Thread Lifts. We are excited for Dr. Williams to introduce Sculptra and MINT Thread Lifts to our practice! Outside of medicine, Dr. Williams is a big football fan and enjoys spending time with her family.
