Knoxville Institute of Dermatology

Jordan Ridder graduated with her BS in biology from the University of Kentucky in 2012, then went on to complete her MMS in Physician Assistant Studies at Lincoln Memorial University DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2017. She is a Board-Certified Physician Assistant through the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.

Jordan started her Physician Assistant career here in Knoxville, working as a hospitalist for nearly a year. In 2018 she moved to the outpatient setting to work in Primary Care where she spent nearly three years taking care of individuals of all ages, managing their acute and chronic illnesses. Throughout her time practicing in the primary care setting, she developed a strong interest in treating dermatologic conditions of all kinds, which led her to ultimately pursue a career in dermatology. She is a member of the Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants and is so excited to be a part of this group and practice what she loves every day.

Jordan and her husband Ben have lived in Knoxville since 2017 and enjoy everything about East Tennessee. They have two young children and love spending time outdoors with family and friends.
