Dr. Wang was born in Taiwan and raised in Rochester, New York. He attended college at Washington University in St. Louis, where he graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa in biology. He earned his MD from Harvard Medical School and, concurrently, his MBA in management and healthcare policy from Harvard Business School.


From Boston, he came to Southern California to complete his medical internship at UCLA-Olive View Medical Center and his dermatology residency training at UCLA. His interest in the microscopic diagnosis of skin conditions ultimately led him to complete a clinical fellowship in dermatopathology at the renowned Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Weill Cornell/NY-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. 

He has published numerous peer-reviewed articles and textbook chapters, as well as given presentations at national and international conferences. The Pacific Dermatology Association awarded him the Arnold W. Gurevich Prize. In addition, he received an international grant from the American Academy of Dermatology to staff an infectious disease and complex medical dermatology clinic in Gabarone, Botswana. 

Dr. Wang loves the warm weather and friendly people of Southern California. He enjoys good food, international travel, and golf. In addition to English, he speaks Mandarin Chinese.
