The Staff and Personnel of

Women’s Health of the Emerald Coast

Kandyce Silver RN, BSN

Clinical Coordinator

Kandyce has many roles in the practice and is also Dr. Silver’s wife. She became a nurse at the age of 18 and went straight into her dream job as a pediatric nurse. In 2011 Dr. Silver asked her to join him in research as a research nurse and coordinator. It was then that she realized her new passion of women’s health and urogynecology. Together, she and Dr. Silver have a combined six children, lovingly referred to as the Brady Bunch Gone Bad. Their four younger children live here in Destin, the older two have left the nest. Kandyce regularly can be found educating patients on surgical procedures, scheduling surgeries, assisting in procedures or just about any other role in making it all flow.

Kristi Abenido

Medical Assistant

Kristi is from Alabama but married a Destin local. They decided to return and raise their two boys here. She is a woman of many talents. In the past, she has been a hair stylist and continues to do hair on a part time basis. Kristi assist Dr. Silver in exam rooms and spends a great deal of time on the phone answering patient questions.


Dove Rodrigues

Insurance & Billing Manager

Dove started working for Dr. Silver over 20 years ago, while in private practice in Texas. She has become part of the Silver family and we knew she should be part of the practice here on the Emerald Coast. Dove remotely works from Texas and does the insurance billing for the office. She does come to town three to four times a year to work in the office, as well as enjoy our beautiful beaches. Dove missed our photoshoot, but we hope to coax her into a photo soon. If you ever have a billing question and you get a call from a Texas number, it is probably Dove.
