Dr. Kristen Diao (pronounced “dee-ow“) was born in Hattiesburg, Mississippi and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. Her family is originally from Taiwan. She graduated from Duke University in 2010, where she majored in Biology. She received her medical degree from Boston University School of Medicine in 2016. She completed her pediatric residency training at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital in 2019. Dr. Diao joined Blue Fish in the summer of 2019.
Dr. Diao met her husband Kevin in Boston through a mutual friend while they were both medical students. Thankfully, they were able to overcome their college rivalries (Duke>UNC) and happily married in 2016. She is excited to be in Houston for his radiation oncology training at MD Anderson. In their free time, they enjoy cooking ethnic foods, exploring secluded corners of the world, spending quality time with family and friends, and teaching little children at church.
Dr. Diao has always wanted to be a pediatrician and loves caring for children and their families. She believes in forming deep relationships with her patients and journeying with them as they grow up. She is fluent in Mandarin.
