Kristin Karlyn, MD

Meet Kristin Karlyn, MD


I believe in providing my patients comprehensive, quality care in a warm, friendly, comfortable environment with more time to better understand each patient’s unique health needs and goals. I am passionate about nutrition, lifestyle medicine and educating my patients about how to best improve their health and prevent disease. 

My MDVIP-affiliated practice, often compared to a concierge medicine practice, offers conveniences like same- or next-day appointments and is located in Pasadena, California, where I was born and raised and now reside with my family. I have been on staff at Huntington Hospital in Pasadena for 20+ years and have close working relationships with many of the ER physicians, specialists and hospitalists affiliated with Huntington. I have special interests in Women’s Health, Geriatrics and Nutrition. I also enjoy hiking/walking, cooking, traveling and trying new foods and cuisine. I also speak basic conversational/medical Spanish.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most MDVIP-affiliated primary care practices accept insurance (your physician can tell you whether they accept your specific insurance plan). Your annual fee pays for preventive care medical services that insurance usually doesn’t cover (e.g., advanced diagnostic testing and screenings). Your MDVIP-affiliated physician will continue to bill your insurance and charge copays, co-insurances and deductibles as he or she currently does for other medical services like sick visits.

MDVIP makes wellness and prevention easier by providing your physician with innovative tools and technology. MDVIP supports your physician’s practice and seeks to eliminate barriers to a positive healthcare experience. Your doctor will determine whether and how to incorporate these tools at his/her discretion.

Testimonials from patients of Kristin Karlyn, MD

Dr. Karlyn truly cares about her patients

from Joyce in CA • April 12, 2023
I experienced severe abdominal pain beginning in the afternoon and continuing through the night. I called Dr. Karlyn early in the morning and she saw me immediately that morning, ordering blood work and a CT scan, which confirmed a diagnosis of appendicitis. She advised me to go to the ER. Although she attempted to pave the way for me to get through the ER quickly by speaking with the surgeon Read more...
